    This is one of the most fantastic records I have ever listened to in my entire life. It is also the first CD I bought (later I bought it on vinyl.) Maybe its just nostalgia, but this album is pure magic. It floats around in the air. I don't know what else to say, but just buy it (on vinyl too, The pressing is super duper.) I hope you won't be disappointed because people need this album to live on threw space and time. Expand

    Wilco still puts out quality albums now, but in my opinion, Summerteeth is where the band peaked. Not as alternative country as Being There or as simple as (Wilco) The Album, 1999's Summerteeth is a nice mix of early and current Wilco, and its a stunning result. Expand

    This is Wilco's "Revolver". An overlooked masterpiece that is overshadowed by the superior and universally praised "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" (Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band). Expand

    A great album and a pure experience. Summerteeth is both optimistic (I'm Always In Love) and depressing at times (How To Fight Loneliness). Both ends of the spectrum are pulled off beautifully. Not contrived at all, Wilco is a band of true musicians and Jeff Tweedy is certainly one of the best lyricists of our time. This CD reflects the top notch band before they really obtained breakthrough success. A staple for any Wilco fan and anyone who appreciates great melodies and clever lyrics. Two takes of In A Future Age wasn't an entirely necessary extension of this near flawless album. But still what are bonus tracks if not extra? Expand

    Hard to say anything negative about this album. Is there anything? Nope. Not one thing. Every song is a classic. "Via Chicago", "How to Fight Loneliness", "She's a Jar", etc. One of their finest achievements. Expand
