I wish I would have got a chance to hear the album on Saturday! I had no idea they were doing that.

I like what I hear so far, its pretty laid back stuff, but I was hoping it would be a little bit more upbeat. I see that the song 'Walken' made the new album. Thats a great jam. I saw them perform it live at the Hurricane Katrina Benefit a while back.

I also wish I could play guitar like Nels, that dude can kick some ass!

I hardly ever listened to Amnesiac and might have listened to it more had it not been released so close to Kid A.
Are they great albums?
Kid A, yes.
Amnesiac, I dunno. Ask the ex-wife. And then run away.


Heh heh. I'm the opposite; Amnesiac moved me in a way Kid A didn't--and then brought me around to loving Kid A, Mate! too. And Hail to the Thief is probably my favorite album by them. I'll still put on Thief and Amnesiac.

Er, ah...Wilco, baby! That's where it's at!

Yeah, it seems blasphemous since The Bends and OK Computer are THE two Radiohead albums, but I listen to Thief most often. It's got the perfect blend of Kid A/Amnesiac's abstract electronic direction and The Bends/OK Computer's rockin' out.

Just for the hell of it, my favorite Thom Yorke moment.

why has there been no mention that there is a new Son Volt today? As big as Wilco has gotten, Son Volts albums have gotten more play and are more consistently good although less "innovative" and wanky (and I am a big fan of both)

I only meant that I prefer Son Volt over Wilco's later work.
