I get the appeal. It has a nice baroque pop feel to it, but I’d like to dismiss it as dad rock if I may. It all seems too much calculated. Music should be spontaneous.

HIGHLY overrated! That being said, still TERRIFIC! I really really like this album, just don't see it belonging in the top 50. Very original sound with some fantastic songs, namely "Jesus etc", "Poor Places", and "IATTBYH". More of an Uncle Tupelo fan but Wilco rocks too

'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot' is really, really good. I've heard it dismissed as 'Dad rock' by lots of people, but if you give it a listen it'll definitely be worth your time. Personally I love 'Pot Kettle Black', 'I Am Trying to Break Your Heart', 'Poor Places' and 'Heavy Metal Drummer'; but the whole album is great. It's a shame that Wilco have never made anything else that gets to this level, I don't care for 'Summerteeth' unlike others.

I think I was too overhyped for this album. It's very innocuous but I think that works against it as there are few dynamic parts to stand out from other albums of the time. I get that indie was still emerging and that this may have been a good convergence of indie and folk, but I feel that it pales in comparison to the indie-folk albums that have come out since like The Shins' "Chutes Too Narrow" or "Oh, Inverted World" or Fleet Foxes' "Helplessness Blues". It has some catchy tracks but that's about it.

A beautiful and fairly unique album that takes at least two listens to fully appreciate. It's strange, but I think the three tracks with the little "top rated" stars are probably the worst, or at least among them. The standout best to me is Radio Cure, while Kamera, Ashes of American Flags, and the closer are also very good.

Fantastic album that deserves all the praise and respect it receives. WILCOs Magnus Opus and clearly one of the best albums of the 2000’s

A good album, but quite a ways from being perfect. I really appreciate this album for the experience rather than individual tracks. Don't get me wrong, the tracks are good, but the magic for me is in the album as a whole.

I really like this album right now. It took a while to grow on me though. If you listen to it once or twice and don't quite see what everyone says is so great, I'd give it a few more tries.
