Wilco hasn't had a good album since Summerteeth.

I wouldn't go that far back, but I would say it went downhill at an alarming speed after "A Ghost is Born."
I'll meet you in the middle and say YHF is utterly listenable. A Ghost is Born is straight trash tho.

I held that same opinion for years regarding A Ghost is Born. Then something clicked for me and now it may be my favorite, depending on the day of the week.

 Nick Cave has never put out a good album.
I can't say I have listened to him extensively enough to discredit his entire oeuvre but I've never liked anything I've heard by him. And yet so many people whose musical opinions I respect seem to adore him. I've always chalked him up as an artist I just "don't get".

Same, actually. From what I have heard, he's such a fucking overwrought drama queen. Get over yourself buddy. I'll give him a pass when it comes to songs about the death of his son, because that is fucking dramatic, but it seems like he's always that way.

It's good to know when and where we have your permission to be human.

He can be "human" all he wants, but that doesn't make me want to listen to all his moaning and groaning.

Yeah, I'm with Space, this is a terrible take. There are lots of people I am empathetic towards; its a false equivalency to present that if you do not like someone's musical creation you are dehumanizing them.

That's the exact same set in the same order that they played in London, with three songs trimmed out.

Ah, different couple. I have a friend who seems to be a bit of a Wilco groupie, I'm surprised she's able to hold down a professional job, lol.

Ahem...

...I think I may be done with live Wilco...I guess I'm just done with the set lists they play...I'm not sure how many more times I can hear Heavy Metal Drummer, and the ensuing roar from the crowd...They play this song every damn show.

yeah, not a single deep cut.  I may still go if I could find a $10 ticket.

So you donít like the classics or the new cuts...seven from new album

Not having seen Wilco since the Americana fest at Merriweather I donít really have a problem with hearing classics and I think playing most of the new album is what a band should be playing

When did Wilco go off the rails? Itís pretty easy to tell as it was captured on a pretty well known film

They're playing a sold out Anthem show. And other sold out shows at other venue significantly larger than when they were playing when that film was made. Remind me, how did they go off the rails?
