Jeff Tweedy "Warm" 11.30

Just gave this a listen the other day. Giving it another listen now. A very somber, sleepy album. A good album when you are feeling down or a dreary day. Read that he's been wrestling with a lot of life's big questions. Think this album captures those feelings.

Indeed a tad sleepy and introspective. A bit underwhelmed by it, but I suppose it is a grower.

Like every Wilco album from the pst 10 years, it’s half good. Half forgettable.

Agreed. Which is too bad. They were my #1 favorite for many years.

It definitely sounds better with headphones on. I agree that both Wilco the album and A Whole Love were Wilco’s Easy Tiger, but the last two were quite good.

Re: Jeff Tweedy "Warm" 11.30

he did a bunch of podcasts, WTF and All Songs Considered were two I listened to.

Nothing super new, he’s been fairly transparent about most of these topics (addiction, suicide, wife’s cancer bout) over the past couple years but i think the book will be interesting, especially for the more invested Wilco followers.

Re: Jeff Tweedy "Warm" 11.30

I was most interested in the UT ears and his relationship with Jay now. He was so evasive for years. I thought there may have been a thawing (and that seems to have been the case) around the time of the UT reissues a few years back.

Re: Jeff Tweedy "Warm" 11.30

Yeah, not sure how much he covers that in the book but he mentioned they talk, categorizing it mostly as business.

Maron got pretty deep into the roots including UT. My take away was that Tweedy always wanted it to be something unique and special rather than just quickly cashing in on the perceived early success and sound of UT.

I probably haven’t read enough to understand the entire saga but the pods were a good listen.

Re: Jeff Tweedy "Warm" 11.30

I feel like if I were to cobble together the best tracks from Star Wars, Schmilco, Tweedy, and Warm, the songs would make a great album. The problem is that's one good album from four albums' worth of material. I realize, though, it's subjective. I know some people probably adore those albums.

Wilco remains one of my favorite bands--and I think they're still dynamite live--but it's been quite a while since I was bowled over by an entire album.

Re: Jeff Tweedy "Warm" 11.30

I revisited A Ghost Is Born not that long ago and realize I overlooked it a bit. At the time it was a disappointment to me, but compared to everything since it's really good. Sky Blue Sky is the other one from the post Bennett years I like.

Re: Jeff Tweedy "Warm" 11.30

I’ve kind of given up on the idea of another great Wilco album, and I’m kind of ok with that (I love everything up to and including Sky Blue Sky). There’s stuff on the last 4 albums that I dig so can still enjoy them.

What does disappoint me though is that they haven’t been down to New Zealand since 2013 (Whole Love tour). They came here for 3 albums in a row then just stopped. I’d love to see them live again.

There are enough songs on that record I really dig that I'd say I like it overall too.
