Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

Thought it was pretty good. Probably my mood of the day, but it felt pretty flat and repetitive in some places.

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

Couple listens so far, liking it a lot. It's grabbed me more than Star Wars did at first (although I came back to that and really liked it)

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

Loved it on my first listen through.

We'll see how I feel about it when I listen again but I like the sound of it

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

I'm always happy for more Tweedy tunes.
It does kinda feel like an album made at home on computer. More Tweedy solo-y in a way.
Safety Girl's lyrics crack me up, especially since he seems to be parodying the famous We Are the World charity/celebrity single.

Re: the SBS/dad rock. Is it really that different from the prior stuff? It just doesn't have any songs with some feedback or white noise like BT - AGIB. It's been awhile, but there are probably less abstract poetic type lyrics.

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

Yeah, SBS, W(TA), TWL are much more straight forward. There are some risks on those 3 albums (Bullblack Nova, Impossible Germany, Art of Almost) and there are some good straight forward songs. But for the most part, those albums are lacking something interesting.

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

This is the only CD that I have in my new car. I'm really enjoying it.

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

Got a couple listens... it's OK. At least I can put it on as background music and play it all the through and find it pleasant. With Star Wars, it's too abrasive to be background music, but didn't interest me enough to listen to actively.

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

Three or four listens at work, and I can say this is my least favorite album of theirs. Very samey and very safe. Mid-tempo throughout. As a nod to Harry Nilsson or whatever, it succeeds, but damn is it boring.

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

Not keen so far. I'm trying though and, to be honest, it did take 10 years of trying before I actually started liking Wilco. I don't think I've ever had to put so much effort into a band but it sure paid off.

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

I think it was done at the same time as the last album. Neither have blown me away, but does have some good tunes.

Re: Wilco - Schmilco (9/9)

Their best yet. The gig I was at two weeks ago just confirmed my first guess. Damn, Schmilco is great and one of a kind. Real, raw, melancholic weird folk.
