Product Description

Product Description

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

i bought this album after hearing practically no wilco previous to the purchase and for about 6 months is stayed that way . i listened once , thought "heavy metal drummer" was bland , "war on war" was downright boring and "jesus ect. was the only thing that kept me listening then after hearing the live version of "jesus ect." on a steady basis it brought me back to YHF and thank got it did . this is a brilliant album on so many levels . Frontman Jeff Tweedy's lyrics and the music created by the band work hand in hand creating something all together cohesive which is a rare thing . odd samples , rhythms that can creep up on you and the ability the break through the whole alternative country thing are just a small part of making this a special album . SO BUY IT......NOW......like NOW NOW !

Since so many people have reviewed this album already, I have no illusions about saying something for the first time nor plan on repeating what has already expressed fully and well.
I do still -specially for those people reading this after listening to YFH's follow-up the also impressive "A Ghost Is Born- need to point to a couple of important things that this album show about Wilco's consistently surprising output.
This album clearly demonstrates that Jeff Tweedy's musical vision and commitment to shed songwriting skins is remarkable and an inspiration, specially in the current midst of so many Rock and Pop icons continuing to repeat themselves, who at best flavor their "butter" differently but go on churning the same formula, forgetting to take the kind of risks that made them important in the first place.
Now, unlike many people have mourned earlier, I don't think this album is an absolute departure from what Wilco has been hailed for before. Although this is not "Summerteeth" or "Being There," Tweedy's love for Pop has not been renounced, "Kamera," "Heavy Metal Drummer" and "Pot Kettle Black" proved that.
More than abandoning former song-glories, Tweedy has evolved, has taken all that he can do and pushed it further into a new atmosphere. Where Jay Bennet was so instrumental in what the albums that preceded this one sounded like, Jim O'Rourke is now Tweedy's full musical partner.
And O'Rourke is no Yoko breaking a great band -actually Yoko did not either!- but rather someone who helped Tweedy say well what he was already prepared to say. His production deepens and thrusts these songs to a higher level.

Like most listeners, it took me several listens before I could even really tolerate many of the songs on YHF. Now I consider it brilliant and truly beautiful. I assure anyone concerned that people only like this album because it's different that my love for the album is genuine. Two years later and the songs still seem to connect more with each listen. The lyrics are sometimes cryptic but make more sense over time and have a distinctive flavor. The song-writing is not really as groundbreaking as some might proclaim, but the production of the songs is brilliant. Although the songwriting certainly comes from a different angle, I can't avoid the comparison to Pink Floyd with the incorporation of extraneous soundeffects into the flow of the songs. Ashes of American Flags is particularly brilliant in this regard, with two stunning but simple guitar parts cutting through out of the swirling static. The result of the production is that even lines of music that essentially amount to pop gain an otherworldly glow; Pot Kettle Black is another great example of this, as is I Am Trying to Break Your Heart. I would also be doing an injustice if I didn't mention how much I love I'm The Man Who Loves You, with its swelling conclusion. This is a collection of songs that would be good without the magical glow of the brilliant production, but which gains a unique appeal in its combination of swirling dissonances and common sense melodies. Buy this album! There's a decent chance you won't like it, but it will become a cherished possession if you do; it occupies a completely unique space in music and will move you more with each listen.

This is the first Wilco album I've ever heard, and I must say its amazing. Coming from a new listener's point of view, I think the songs are really amazing in that they are experimental but highly listenable. Little sound effects in songs like Radio Cure and (my favorite track) I am trying to break your heart make the album really interesting. The songs seem to be really well written also. I particularly like Jesus, etc... it almost reminds me of a Steely Dan song.
Most of the songs on the album are really mellow. It seems pretty laid back, although some songs transform from subtle acoustic tunes to pure white noise, which isnt a bad thing. If you're used to standard verse-chorus-verse song styles and nothing out of the ordinary, you might not enjoy this album. It's definitely something different, which is fine with anyone who has listened to experimental music before. As I said before, the great part about this album is that although it is experimental, the songs are still good quality and you can enjoy them over and over.
