2009 album from the American Roots rockers led by singer/songwriter Jeff Tweedy. Though many fans suspected that Wilco's self-titled seventh studio album would mark a return to the wild cut-and-paste experimentalism of Yankee Foxtrot Hotel, the record is in fact more of a piece with its traditional-sounding 2007 predecessor, Sky Blue Sky. Heavily influenced by `60s and `70s pop music, songs like 'Sunny Feeling' and 'You Never Know' sound as if the band might finally be attempting to score the elusive hit single. The album is all strummy guitars, tinkling keyboards, big choruses, George Harrison-style slide guitar, and stacked harmony vocals, conjuring aural images of bands such as Love, Wings, and Badfinger. Throughout, the songwriting is tight and focused, making Wilco (The Album) one of the most instantly accessible albums in the Chicago-based group's catalog.
