I’ve had the new Wilco release for a month now and with each listen I am liking it it more. To me, that is the sign of a great album. Many of the songs on The Whole Love are catchy upon first listen but there is so much more to them. Give this album a chance and you’ll find it has the power to grow on you. The Whole Love finds Jeff Tweedy in a good place musically and emotionally. Dare I say it’s a feel good album? Well, it makes me feel good…and Jeff’s band mates have never sounded better. This line up has really gelled as a band over the last few years and their comfort and confidence shines, especially on the otherworldly opening track “Art of Almost” which takes the listener on an experimental joyride for the senses. Solid song writing and musicianship makes The Whole Love one of Wilco’s most consistent and enjoyable albums to date. See them live if you get the chance. You won’t be disappointed.
