Far too much attention has been focused on this album's tortured history; band makes weird album, label rejects it, band buys it back and puts it out a year later through another arm of the same corporation. For the record, wildly overexcited Radiohead comparisons aside, the album's not that weird--it merely ventures a bit further down the sonic-shambles roads explored on the band's previous two releases. As has been noted elsewhere, the most valid reference point for the occasional pop deconstructions of YANKEE HOTEL FOXTROT is Big Star's THIRD/SISTER LOVERS, not Thom Yorke and company.

The most significant factor in this nominal weird-out is the presence of producer Jim O'Rourke, whose avant-rock tendencies loom large here. Nevertheless, beneath the layers of warped keyboards and slow-death guitars, Wilco mastermind Jeff Tweedy has loaded the album with catchy (yes, catchy) tunes that mix the pure power-pop of mid-period Beach Boys and the aforementioned Big Star with the rootsy background of Tweedy's former group Uncle Tupelo and an unmistakable streak of singer-songwriter melancholy. Don't be scared away by ridiculous assessments of this as a "difficult" album; any Wilco fan may enter this hotel without trepidation.

Wilco: Jeff Tweedy (vocals, guitar); John Stirratt, Leroy Bach, Glenn Kotche, Jay Bennett.

Additional personnel: Craig Christiansen, Ken Coomer, Jessy Greene, Fred Lonborg-Holm, Jim O'Rourke.
Recorded at The Loft, CRC, and Soma E.M.S., Chicago, Illinois.
