Happy Birthday To My Musical Savior, Jeff Tweedy. I Love You.

Not the best shot of Tweedy, but I love this guitar.

In honor of Jeff Tweedy’s 43rd birthday today, I am doing my normal routine of listening to every Wilco album in chronological order. Why yes, it is very Rob Gordon of me.

In addition to celebrating Wilco’s entire catalog, I’ve decided to make two Wilco lists. Yes, lists. It’s also very Rob Gordon of me.

Wilco Albums: Worst To First

7. “A Ghost Is Born”

6. “Being There”.

5. “A.M.”

4. “Sky Blue Sky”

3. “Wilco (The Album)”

2. “Summerteeth”

1. “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”

This is not the order in which you should listen to this band. If you’re new to Wilco, I suggest “Sky Blue Sky” first. It’s their most commercially pleasing album to date. Also if you’re new to Wilco, what the hell is wrong with you?

    He is so great at everything he does. Without him, Wilco would not be what it is!

    Being There “worse” than AM? Sacrilege.
    Casino Queen (which rhymes “My lord you’re mean” with “on your tables so green”) their second best song? I dunno.

    I’d also argue Wilco (The Album) is perhaps the most accessible, but who really cares – great is great.
