Wilco fans could argue about which album is their favorite all day and all night long. Many do, in fact.
Scene: Wilco fans argue during downtime at Solid Sound Fest:
90′s rock purist: “Anybody with a brain in their skull knows that Wilco peaked with Being There; I’m not into their whole ‘experimental,’ Yankee Hotel Foxtrot phase.”
Modern rock purist with a historian complex: “Is this even a question? Yankee Hotel Foxtrot was not just a revolutionary album, it was the revolutionary album of the new millennium. ‘Totes have it on vinyl; the original, mind you. And also, there’s no such thing as a ‘historian complex.’”
Wilco “deep cuts” purist:“How has no one mentioned A Ghost is Born yet? Okay, give Spiders (Kidsmoke) a chance; you’ll ‘get it’ after 3 listens!”
90′s Alt-Country Purist: “Y’all hipsters are clueless. I liked Wilco when they were just an offshoot of Uncle Tupelo; A.M. all the way!”
Guy that really likes Summerteeth: “Dude. Summerteeth.”
Whatever type of Wilco fan you are, now is the time to voice your opinion in this week’s poll:
