Wilco is going to love you this week

“Wilco (The Album)” gets an official release Tuesday more than a month after being leaked. What I said then is true today: It’s a very good album but not a great one. It doesn’t compare with Wilco’s past classics and it’s not as cohesive as the band’s last release, “Sky Blue Sky.” But it’s enjoyable, full of really good songs and worth buying.

There’s a little something for everyone in this new album, including a female duet (a first) with Feist. And while there’s a lot of noodling in the studio, these songs hold up well live.

You Never Know – Wilco

I’ll Fight – Wilco
