    This is an essential collection for any discerning Wilco fan. It is a wonderful companion piece to the band's 8 studio albums and the standard is high throughout the 77 tracks. It is endlessly interesting to follow the band over its journey of self exploration as well as the chronological sonic development. A must buy, an early Christmas present, and a sign that this band still exists andThis is an essential collection for any discerning Wilco fan.

A must buy, an early Christmas present, and a sign that this band still exists and its next move could be just as fascinating to witness. Long live Wilco! Expand

    This is an odyssey both emotional and educational. [Jan 2015, p.108]

    If Wilco have deliberately stepped back from the brink in recent years, the quality has been maintained, and one feels the door is always open for their return. [Jan 2015, p.80]

    What Alpha Mike Foxtrot lacks is equally significant: meandering guitar solos from recent recordings and zero footholds for "dad-rock" puns. Rather, AMF communicates Wilco's career innovation, maintained while increasing popularity--the rarest of feats.
