    A little bit of a battle with the Largo website turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Tried to grab a single ticket for Jeff Tweedy's show on 12/15 and when it went to process my order, the site crashed. Reloaded the order page and tried again, only for it to crash again. Well, it actually processed and charged me for both orders. A friend was completely shut out so she quickly claimed my extra. :D

    Where'd you hear it? Did pre-orders come early, or is there a leak, or some early release deal somewhere?

    :lol: Oh boy... I'm just starting to listen to it right now..... I like the first 75 seconds of it anyway. ;) Doesn't sound country at all! I did see Wilco perform on Colbert the other night though, and did think that was very boring. I turned it off before the song was even over.
    EDIT: about halfway through now..... I LOVE IT!

    Not really that bad, I just think Tweedys been hammering the same formula for several albums now. I think Star Wars was the last Wilco to actually sound like anybody besides him was involved. With the glut of solo material and 2  Wilco albums that sound like it, it’s just too much.

    In that case, lucky for me that I only ever listen to a limited number of their albums, so no formula has had any effect on me. I really only like maybe 3 or 4 of their albums (all the least country sounding ones). I didn't care for their last album. This one I like. Star Wars was pretty good. Of course my fave is always will be YHF.

    On first track now. Love the production of it already. Sounds wicked.

    I thought the hand wringing among Tools fan base regarding Fear Inoculum was pretty bad, but the reaction to Ode has been hilarious. World class band so there are always a few nuggets but this album is probably the worst of Tweedy’s career and some fans are calling it a return to form. And either they received some horrendous reviews in the past  or they’ve been super gracious with interviews to be receiving mostly positive reviews.

    No way this is worse than Wilco (the album)

    It’s not a return to form. His song writing definitely shifted with the Tweedy record. Since then talk been improving with every record including the 2 solo albums. It’s definitely a shift from everything in before Tweedy, which got too dad rock, the past few have gotten closer to the Loose Fur song style of writing which is fine by me.

    They're doing a live stream of tonight's show at Brooklyn Steel in NYC. It's due to start in about 45 minutes.
