    Yes!

    I only know Blue and Court and Spark, and I've long heard I need to get more into Joni Mitchell as people frequently cite her more jazzy albums as influences on Joanna Newsom. Thanks for that, it looks very helpful.

    And I love the Wilco re-take. New reviews in here, yay!

    That Blur rundown bums me out. I'd love to take a second pass at it.

    Love the Wilco and Joni rundowns. Keep up the good work!
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    I've always felt, even with a few glasses of wine, that Joni Mitchell would be one tough nut to crack in bed.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Her early reputation would suggest otherwise.

    Have you really only listened to them for a year? That makes this even more impressive. I've listened to them since (mumble mumble 95 mumble) which may be why I have more affection for AM.

    Yeah I had had YHF for ages and never really got into it, but a friend told me to download Summerteeth late 2011 and I went from meh to uber-fan fairly quickly. Seeing them twice last year only sped up my listening, especially to the older stuff that they were working into the setlists (speaking of which, have they always had such wide-ranging setlists or has that just been in the last tour?). I did a write-up on them for radio, so this kinda evolved from that, but the compliments make me blush nevertheless.

    As for A.M, I have to admit it is my least listened to Wilco album and my knowledge of alt-country in general is really limited to No Depression, so that's partly the reason its ranked so low for me. I'm planning on diving into the Uncle Tupelo/Son Volt combo fairly soon, so I'm sure then A.M will be colored a little more positively for me. I also really started getting into music around SBS, so its singles have a bit of a special place for me.

    I'm hoping to tackle Andrew Bird next.

    Anodyne (Uncle Tupelo) and Trace (Son Volt) are highly worthwhile. The rest of the Uncle Tupelo catalogue, also very good but start there. As for Son Volt, they declined rapidly, sorry to say.

    I'd have to sit on them for a while given how busy and important I am, but I could do Gillian Welch/David Rawlings, Shearwater, Why?, and probably Dax Riggs pretty easily. Not sure if anybody cares enough about any of those things for me to do them, but let me know. I'd also take on Jason Molina as a project for re-examination if desired, and could probably do Neko Case and/or New Pornographers and/or some conglomerate beast of New Pornographers and AC Newman and Neko Case and Dan Bejar (highlights only) provided nobody cares when it's done and how much of it is gibberish.

    I would read (quickly, with substantial interest) your takes on Gillian and Neko. I would also read (more leisurely, but intrigued, because I respect your taste) your writeups on the others.

    Hannah, I love Furnace Room Lullaby deeply, and nothing else Neko's done has grabbed me the way that one has. Tell me where to try again.

    Ok. I'm going to connect things with strings across a bulletin board as though solving a conspiracy.

    I suppose my Nick Cave needs a slight update, but I'll likely wait until I can get my hands on his new one. I can also do (off the top of my head) Echo & The Bunnymen, Billy Bragg, and/or Guided by Voices from 1992's Propeller onward, which is generally when they stopped being crap. Provided there's interest, of course. I don't do this for my health.

    I did do it, but it's been a few albums and a lot of apathy since then so it'd probably be better for you to do a current one.

    Okay. My review will really be coming from a nostalgic-and-then-bitterly-apathetic viewpoint as well, though.

    Fuck all y'all, the last Decemberists album was quite good. But I'll wait to see what you say Cara. You're on notice though.

    And I think starting at the beginning with Uncle Tupelo is the best approach, as No Depression is their most exciting and immediately enjoyable album.

    Don't worry, Bryan, my review of Colin's take on Americana is much more favorable than my view on his take of progrockpera.

    I actively try to suppress my memories of listening to that wretch. Worse than the Metallica/Lou Reed album.
