  • Summary: This six-track disc is a collaboration between Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, drummer Glenn Kotche, and Jim O'Rourke (known for both his acclaimed recent solo albums and work with Wilco and Sonic Youth).

  1. The result is aural perfection. [Feb 2003, p.68]
  2. This is the natural and logical epiphany of three musicians who have been getting to know one another for some time. It's also a damn good album.
  3. Challenging, arresting and moving in equal measures.
  4. Anthemic minus guitar heroism, psychedelic without melting walls, modestly pretentious, it's art rock in overalls. [7 Feb 2003, p.82]
  5. Without a doubt there are quite a few moments on Loose Fur to enthrall diehard fans of anyone involved. And yet, when all is said and done, I’m still wanting more, wondering what else they could have done.
  6. 70
    O'Rourke mostly contributes electro-folk noodling for a laptop-friendly coffeehouse, but Tweedy's tunes are glum gold. [Jan 2003, p.98]
  7. Sounds a bit like a stripped-down version of Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

    Who is this SC Master slash loser? This album is beautiful period Lush, simple yet dense, full of beautiful moments. The only reason you Who is this SC Master slash loser? This album is beautiful period Lush, simple yet dense, full of beautiful moments. The only reason you could not agree is if you had bad taste, or your head up your ass as you were listening to it.

    Yes, good. Loose but good. Random noises coalesce into the catchiest of melodies.

    This is the type of thing that convinces you that these reviews, at least the ones by the 'professionals', can't be taken This is the type of thing that convinces you that these reviews, at least the ones by the 'professionals', can't be taken seriously. They are too wrapped up in trying to prove how hip they are to be able to discern talent or the lack thereof. They equate obscure with deserving of merit, failing to realize a good deal of obscure music is obscure for a reason. I mean, listen to this thing. It's sophomoric at best, self-infatuated meaningless and meandering noodling. And this gets scores in the 70's???!! Truly awful. Expand
