Wilco - a ghost is born

After Singer/Songwriter Jeff Tweedy's spell in rehab the music world waited anxiously for the follow up to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. This album is a far more stripped down affair than anything Wilco have done before, with a far more effective use of piano than Wilco have managed in nearly ten years. While only "I'm a Wheel" is as immediate as Wilco's previous material, the album is a true slow burner, with the bluesy strum "Handshake Drugs" and the chaotic, mournful "At least thats what you said" the standouts. Poignant lyrics, Impessive Instrumentation and a confident sense of progression unite to create a mostly brilliant album, but however most noticeably on "Hell is Chrome" things get a bit too slight, which is when, unconventionally, Wilcos music loses most of its feeling. This, together with the removal of the epic pop of "Spiders (Kidsmoke)" make this edition of the album unworthy of a five star rating. Rip:- "At least thats what you said" "Handshake drugs" "Muzzle Of Bees" "Company In My Back" "The Late Greats" "I'm a Wheel" "Kicking Television"

Guitarist Jay Bennett rounded out the group, which in 1995 issued...
