Flashback: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot by Wilco

Considering the fact that this album was officially released in 2002 and I didn’t start actively listening to music until maybe 2006 and didn’t hear this album until even later, maybe the term “Flashback” doesn’t technically apply. But, nonetheless, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is a classic album and a personal favorite, I personally think it is an absolutely perfect album. It was such an unlikely album that the sheer miraculousness of its birth might have been enough to impress some, but upon listening you realize that, in spite of the difficulty surrounding its release, this album is a totally relaxed breeze of songs that are meticulously comfortable together,

This album is a masterpiece of appeal and its headphone audience is just as diverse as the turnout at Wilco’s concerts. Hippies, old dirty rockers, Pitchfork viewers, record store critiquing indie chicks, all of us can unite over this album! Noone is above this album, it’s above us all. -AW
