I've listened to Sky Blue Sky quite a few times sometime ago. I can't really remember a single track from the album. I might give it another chance, but you might be right. I was addicted to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot when I came across a copy at a Goodwill one time. I thought A Ghost is Born was pretty good, which I heard prior. I need to get Summerteeth and Being There.

Sweet Goodwill find!
Get Summerteeth before Being There, if you can only get one at a time.

I agree with you about Sky Blue Sky. I wouldn't say I don't like it, but it's nowhere near their previous three. It's like they lost all that pyschedelic/electronic craziness and just went for a completely polished and tame album as you said. There are a few tracks on it that I enjoy though. The first three are each solid songs. My favorites are "Sky Blue Sky" and "Please Be Patient With Me", they're really nice laid back tunes. I just hope this album does not represent the direction Wilco is going in the future.

Yeah, it's really random what you might find at Goodwill. A friend of mine found Elliott Smith's Figure 8 once. I found a ton of really great vinyl once, they had R.E.M., Springsteen, B-52's, and some other good finds.

Wilco Eyeing Spring '09 For New Album
Quote:
Tweedy says he expects Wilco will "allow ourselves a little bit more leeway in terms of sculpting the sound in the studio and doing overdubs and using the studio as another instrument. Last time around, it was more of a document."
Sounds good to me.

Can we be expecting a review of Kicking Television soon?

Definitely, working on getting Kicking Television, review in the next week.

By the way, I would love to create a "best of" or starting playlist for this band and share it with MusicBanter, but I don't know how to make a playlist and host it for everyone to download. Anyone know how to go about doing this?

Listen to the tracks and save it as a playlist on last.fm. Everyone then can stream it.

That didn't really work, since Last.fm doesn't allow you to play all the tracks, but here's a playlist I created with Playlist.com (some songs I wanted to include are missing since the website didn't have them):

Why don't you just create like a compilation and upload them onto a site like megaupload so everyone can actually download the songs?

If you don't know how to here's the PMO's Easy Peasy Guide to Uploading Your Own Compilations
