Anyone else think Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is brilliant? Sure you do. I saw them live a few days ago, and the YHF songs didn't translate that well to the stage since it's such a studio heavy album. I'd like for them to get back into the studio and record a new record, but they're going to be touring this summer and opening for R.E.M. this fall. Oh well.

It was one of my favorite albums of last year, for sure. 'I Am Trying To Break Your Heart' was a great documentary, too. It was great to see them playing earlier versions of the songs, as they evolved.

fucking fantastic. best record all of last year.  i saw them playing the YHF songs last year and the previous (before the record came out they toured with the new songs since they had been dropped from their label) and really enjoyed them live.  summer teeth had previously been one of my favorite albums of all time but then YHF took them in a direction i couldnt have anticipated and now love them more than ever.  I AM TRYING TO BREAK YOUR HEART is an incredible music documentary for any body who hasnt seen it.  as for a new album, you can download (for free mp3) their new EP "More Like The Moon" off their website www.wilcoworld.net for free if you have YHF.  it includes an alternate version of kamera and a few songs recorded with YHF and since.  very cool.  has anyone else heard the outtakes from the record?  they are pretty incredible.  a few months after it came out i received about 21 songs (previously unreleased and alternate takes) of songs recorded during the YHF sessions and i think some of them are really incredible.  im interested to hear?

Yeah I have it on DVD. It's very interesting, not straying much from usual rock band documentaries. You get stuff like the recording of the album, touring, record company politics. Sam Jones did a wonderful job on it. I'm glad it was made if just for the fact that it gives us a document of the making of a record that was an instant classic. If you're even a casual Wilco fan you should watch it.

I would love to have the earlier versions in their entirety....this is an album with so much weight that i've had it since it came out, and haven't had a true appreciation of it 'til now....can't wait to see what they do next.

i agree. i liked the album when it came out but i think it wasnt really until recently that i truly appreciated how incredible it is.  i have 3 alternate versions of kamera alone plus a whole disc of alt. takes/versions and unused cuts.  the movie and the outtakes are really companion pieces to the album.  together they really give you a good idea of the whole process that made yhf so great.  has anyone else heard any of these outtakes?

Anyone else concerned about the future of Wilco without Jay Bennett in the band? Well, I wouldn't say concerned......more like bummed. I know that Jeff is more than capable of handling the songwriting by himself, but Jay was a pretty major contributor. I guess we'll find out when the next album is released.

heavy metal drummer is so peppy and heartbreaking at the same time.  not many songs are like that anymore.

You need to own this:



One of the songs, "Laminated Cats" I think, is an alternate, Loose Fur version of "Not for the Season."  Also, there are a few songs here sung by YHF's mixer/producer Jim O'Rourke.  Wild, experimental, excellent stuff.

yeah i actually have that.  its a little more experimental than i like, but its good.  (prefer wilco though).  but i did see the wilco/sonic youth tour about a week ago and jim o rourke came out with wilco and they played "laminated cat", (which is the really weird version of "not for the season").  it was pretty neat.
