MojoA masterpiece, exactly the sort of record that your average sentient pop genius should make in 2002. [May 2002, p.99]
Complex and dangerously catchy, lyrically sophisticated and provocative, noisy and somehow serene, Wilco's aging new album is simply a masterpiece; it is equally magnificent in headphones, cars and parties.... No one is too good for this album; it is better than all of us.
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is basically a good album, even a great album if you're in the mood, though if you listen to a lot of hip-hop (or house music or basement bhangra or any other genre not dominated by white people), it probably won't be the most extraordinary album you'll hear all month.

However, they manage to change styles without losing their appeal. Not a real catchy group of songs but a solid one nonetheless.… Expand
