    The studio cuts from this era on What's Your 20? provide a reminder of the huge contribution that the late multi-instrumentalist (and Tweedy's occasional co-writer) Jay Bennett made to Wilco's gradual shift from sour-breathed earthiness to more experimental, sophisticated and unsettled sounds.

    This is most easily recommended to casual fans and folks looking for an introduction to the group's music.

    The upside is that they remain a compelling and unpredictable outfit even two decades into their career, but the downside is that What’s Your 20 is more or less redundant. These songs all sound so much better on their respective albums.
