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 orWilco 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

    Well, I actually give this an 8.5. This album runs a bit long to listen to all at once, unlike other Wilco albums which could keep going for Well, I actually give this an 8.5. This album runs a bit long to listen to all at once, unlike other Wilco albums which could keep going for days without problems. Some songs on here sound more refined on Kicking Television, but this shows the band just before their "breakthrough". It also helps to understand the staggering jump in sound from Being There to YHF. A good effort: compare to Radiohead's "The Bends" with less distinctive songs and played at 75% speed. Expand

    Pop that can be consumed as a critic or as a fan, whatever your mood, and some of Tweedy's best word play. This is the transitional Pop that can be consumed as a critic or as a fan, whatever your mood, and some of Tweedy's best word play. This is the transitional album that at moments hints on what is to come with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot but maintains the roots that were introducted on AM and Being There. Expand

    Summerteeth is a landmark album for Wilco - with a sound that is rejuvenated, the band renew the general music public's interest in them. It'sSummerteeth is a landmark album for Wilco - with a sound that is rejuvenated, the band renew the general music public's interest in them. It's as interesting as anything the band have ever done. With a mix of styles centred around the classic Wilco sound and consisting mostly of upbeat tempo numbers, the band keep the listener engaged from start to finish of the sprawling album. Songs like "When You Wake Up" and "She's A Jar" are things of simple of beauty, masterclasses in songwriting and how to build upon a basic idea to make something wonderful. "I'm Always In Love" is Wilco doing their best Velvet Underground impression, giving us an edgy but upbeat number with some great synth layers ontop. "ELT" is another track that sees the band get out the synths to accompany an upbeat rocker with successful results. Overall "Summerteeth" sees Wilco explore new territories while retaining everything that first drew people to them. A great album that is well worth a listen. Expand
