Wilco - Every Album Ranked

In anticipation of the release of Jeff Tweedy's second solo album, Warmer, in the past few months and anticipated return to work with the band (well, a tour at least), it's a good time to assess their work as a group to date. I've been a long time fan, but not in the fanatical sense of the word. So these are just my picks based on my level of play, familiarity, and strength of the songs. The band, with Tweedy as its leader and bassist John Stirratt its only other permanent member, has seen numerous changes in sound and membership over the years. The addition of Glenn Kotche on drums and Nels Cline on guitar were game changers in both cases. A band that refuses to sit still that I always found at their most compelling when pushing boundaries. Ranking these is a bit of an exercise in splitting hairs given the quality of their output, but here it goes. And I won't be pretentious and claim anything other than Yankee Hotel Foxtrot as their best! Click an album below to read a review

I can't listen to "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" anymore because it successfully broke my heart.

A whole, I prefer their rougher stuff. That mid-2000s period of being in commercials just sounds too polished to me.

I hope you’re not talking about that faucet commercial. I bought a case of them.
