Best Of ’11: Wilco

Wilco – The Whole Love

48 hours ago, I was planning to write this post and I knew just how I’d start – “I want to LOVE this new Wilco album…but I don’t.”  But something happened over the course of the last few days as I listened again for the umpteenth time…and while this album still isn’t my favorite of the year, I like it a whole lot more than I did before. There are certain tracks that I’m not a fan of, but there are some seriously beautiful moments on here…I especially love track 6, “Born Alone” and the epic 12 minute album closer, “One Sunday Morning” which has such a great vibe to it.

Lyric Of The Week

Wilco – “Born Alone”

As I’ve been listening to the new Wilco album, it’s clear that track 6, “Born Alone” is my standout favorite. So I thought it would be pretty fitting to point out these genius lyrics, considering my lyric post last week was “Die Alone” from Ingrid Michaelson.

“Tonight I’d rather count the warm fuse internally
Subtract the silence of myself
I would rather choose the middle mind of mystery
Reverse a riddle for my health…

The valves are blowing stone
The kids are unabashed
Loneliness postponed
Mine eyes deceiving glory
I was born to die alone
Alone”

Wilco – “Born Alone”

Here’s a flipping awesome new Wilco tune and a sweet video to go along with it! I’m so pumped to get my hands on the new album – The Whole Love, which comes out in just a few weeks. What I’ve heard of it so far has exceeded my expectations!
