Special Edition of the Critically Acclaimed 2002 Album from Jeff Tweedy and Company with a Special Bonus Disc with Six Exclusive Tracks from the Documentary Film 'i Am Trying to Break Your Heart'.
Named in honour of the three-word codes used by short-wave radio operators, Wilco's fourth album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot sounds like a late-night broadcast of some weirdly wonderful pop station punctuated by static and the sonic bleed of competing signals. Songs that begin with simple, elegiac grace--"Ashes of American Flags" and "Poor Places"--end in a cathartic squall of distortion. The results can be initially jarring, but it's these tracks more than the sturdy jangle pop of "Kamera" or "Heavy Metal Drummer" that demand, and reward, repeated listens.
Mixed by studio experimentalist Jim O'Rourke and produced by the band, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot harkens back to a time when the words "pop" and "sonic adventurism" weren't mutually exclusive. The Beatles and Kurt Cobain knew this, and clearly so do Jeff Tweedy and company. --Keith Moerer
This MUCH-hyped disc is in fact very good, and interesting sound-wise, but hardly the "classic" it is portrayed to be ... even here on Amazon.ca. Read morePublished on July 21 2007 by B. Keith
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have in our presence an album that breaks ground much the same way Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of The Moon" did. Read morePublished on July 2 2004 by Kristofer Basile
I'm not at all a fan of whatever genre Wilco were before this album. I've never heard any Uncle Tupelo, and I don't own any other Wilco alubms. Read morePublished on July 1 2004 by dudesimon
This album is possibly the best rock album since The Talking Heads masterpiece "remain in light". Jeff tweedy's song writing is not to be believed. Read morePublished on June 22 2004
AM - Wilco tries to be the Stones. They're not the stones, they're not Gram Parsons, but so what I've heard all the stones songs and all the Gram Parsons songs a million times. Read morePublished on June 21 2004
Everyone knows the drama behind this record. Their label refused it because they did not hear a "hit single" on it. Read morePublished on June 19 2004 by John J. Stewart
The music press has me convinced: I should like Wilco. Their roots go back further than any of their contemporaries, and they have a complex and deep history of their own. Read morePublished on June 19 2004 by .
