Vice’s review of Wilco: worst album of the month

Posted May 27th, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

Agreed. It should have won worst cover of the month, too. As you can see from the picture to the left, it is none too exciting. I’ve always hated Wilco. It bores me into oblivion. I could never bring myself to sit through an entire album without nodding off and drooling. I fully realize Vice goes for shock value with its reviews, but I’ll be damned if I don’t laugh my ass off each month at a handful of them, like the following:

Wilco

Sky Blue Sky

Nonesuch

Hey, everyone who likes this band: Fuck you. You might as well listen to the Eagles. You also might as well sterilize yourselves, because if you have kids they are guaranteed to be assholes too. Sure, that might seem drastic but is it worth the uncomfortable phone call in 20 years to tell me I was right? Spare yourself the trouble and get it over with now. It’s what your parents should have done. ARTIE PHILIE
