What a wet blanket that dude is.
While i'll agree about son volt
Id say wilco has been getting a pass for awhile. For all the accolades that Yankee Hotel Foxtrot gets/got i fail to get it to this day ? Forget about Summerteeth and A Ghost is born talk about painfully boring granted i havent heard the last 2 wilco releases and sky blue sky had some real good moments. I got to say tweedy for the most part lost me after Being There.Probably because i leaned more toward the alt country sounds of A.M. as opposed to the more experimentel stuff like AGIB & YHF.
This is another good example of 2 talented song writers butting heads and letting there egos get the best of them .
