I think with this new record, Wilco, as a whole, are doing a lot to show that they don't take themselves as seriously as some might think. Have you seen the album cover? It's like Lawrence of Arabia displaced but happy. Yet, on this first listen, the music is still fantastic. I love Jeff Tweedy. As a group, Wilco are probably the best American musical act out there right now. Not to say that there aren't any other good ones, but man oh man are Wilco awesome.
