Find Me On:
YHF is still my favorite album of all time from Wilco. I definitely go through phases when I love the sound of Summerteeth and Being There, and even A.M. A Ghost is Born is a close runner-up, with “Handshake Drugs” making a strong case for their best song ever. But on a whole for never disappointing from start to finish, YHF takes first. I’ll never forget sitting in a classroom in high school and my way-cooler-than-I-recognized-at-the-time journalism teacher played me “Jesus, etc.” I must have listened to that song a hundred times on repeat. Completely agree with the importance of Jim O’Rourke’s influence, too. YHF would have just been Summerteeth: The Sequel without his artistry.
