Had a belly laugh at the proper Wilco fan who ranks them up there with The Beatles and Radiohead and is suddenly indignant about all 3 of his favorite bands being "cool to hate."
Then he comes back a couple posts later and says "I also love King Crimson ��" out of the utter blue.

The kind of thing where if you didn't suspect the dude of being like 15 you'd think "wow this is better than Eric Andre"

Haha, tbf he was responding to the previous guy’s “Then again, my favorite band wrote 4 songs with "Lark's Tongue in Aspic" in the title.�

Yeah, I’ve yet to hear a Wilco song that does anything for me, love Nels as a talking head tho.

So I’m guessing there won’t be much traction for the Shortscale Wilco compilation I was planning. :?

Never got Wilco as well. Their rig rowndowns are cool though. On other matter, even bands I like sound bland on the Later with Jools Holland as someone pointed out here on the forum a long time ago. It's like German Beat Club sound engineers figured out how to capture the live energy of the bands and BBC sound engineers keep doing the opposite of what their German counterparts did

There's a lot of Wilco I really like but I know it's a slide into middle age. But that performance is insipid and that guitar is utter shit. Sounds and looks worse than some mystery-wood shitbox with sharp frets and a plastic nut. It's the Dusk Tiger of acoustics.

I can get not liking Wilco (I quite like them, but understand the criticisms) but comparing them to Oasis is beyond the pale.

[Edit] my point about Oasis was thier tunes essentially ripped off T-rex and Slade they were glam rock chooooonnns with an Ian Brown attitude - all of it second rate by comparison.... so thier good tunes were someone else's.

Oasis's first two records are mostly great, though they are admittedly the only band to become self-parodic before the end of their debut LP (Slide Away). The British music press was always waiting for them to stumble though, so after they made a bad call on Morning Glory reviewers were terrified to point out that Be Here Now was terrible and instead said it was the best album since Revolver or some stupid shit the Gallaghers likely asked them to... that was pretty much the beginning of the end, all their albums after that just seemed so lazy but people wouldn't let you suggest they should just pack it in.

So they're actually Weezer, not Wilco.
