    I'm not into Wilco, but I love Krautrock. Wilco does that sound wonderfully. I would say the album Spiders is on.

    Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is their masterpiece.
    The other two on the list for me would be Being There and (depending on the day) A Ghost is Born.

    Totally agree. That's a GREAT album.

    YHF is Wilco's high water mark, IMO.

    What's not to dig about Nels Cline as a guitar player... and I do like some of that stuff... but I really miss Jay Bennett.

    Jay Bennett brought pop sensibilities and a sense of musical grounding to that band that I definitely miss; a good foil to Tweedy's 'Is it Americana?/Is it "prog"?/What the hell is this?' thing.

    Foil indeed. Obviously there was a lot of tension there. Tweedy and Bennett mixing it up like a couple of old hens rolling around in the mud in 'I Am Trying To Break Your Heart' is pretty hilarious.

    I'll take 'Summerteeth', 'Being There', and 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot'. I like 'The Palace at 4am (Part I)', a cool little pop record that Jay Bennett did with Edward Burch.
