Mi pare ci sia un po' di stanchezza e di calo di ispirazione da parte di Tweedy, ma in ogni casi il disco rimane a livelli più che discreti, con due o tre ottime canzoni.

My first impression of this album was that most of the tracks on it were a litle boring--an experience I have with a lot of Wilco's albums, as they all tend to be slow growers. The exception this time was the album's closing track, the twelve-minute, subtle stunner "One Sunday Morning," a song that Jeff Tweedy wrote for his son. Upon further listens, of course, I discovered that a number of the other songs are great, too, especially "Dawned on Me," a mid-tempo rocker that shows Tweedy as a songwriter reaching a level of emotional maturity and self-awareness that can only come with age and experience.

I started listening to Wilco very late (in 2011), so that is maybe the reason why this album is my favourit. But for me this has the perfect mixture of popsongs and experimental songs. I put this pretty high in my greatest album charts, but more to honor the band

This album is great. The songwriting is excellent, the guitar work is really cool, the arrangements are great, it’s just a great album. There are a couple moments where it isn’t incredible, but it’s still good. It is certainly not a disappointing album and it’s one worth getting.

Anyone else catching the "Beatles"ness of this band in their later years? It is lacking of course the Beatles flair. Wilco is solid and interesting at times, but they hit this ceiling for me from becoming great.

Nice bounce back from Wilco (The Album). The Whole Love is still growing on me. One day, the listening world will realize that Wilco kept going after Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and continued to write great music.

From paladisiac 12/16/2011 15:52
In my opinion, Wilco lost its experimenting creative edge and slid a bit towards adult contemporary fare on albums "sky blue sky" and "wilco (the album)". There were a couple songs like "bull black nova" and "impossible germany" that stretched the new, adult wilco sound, but for the most part, they sounded more like a band fine in where it was at, ready to put out solid rock shows and nothing more. i long for "summerteeth", "yankee hotel foxtrot" and "a ghost is born" (despite its overreaching guitar feedback).

Enter "the whole love" which pushes at their current boundaries a little more, and is all the better for it, nicely summed up on opening track "art of almost". Nels Cline brings the shredder too, which augments a bunch of the songs, like on "standing o".

Far better than there last two albums sure, but putting it up there with Yankee hotel foxtrot mmmmmmmmm no, maybe with A ghost is born which is trully underrated, they seem far more loose now which helps them to be more eclectic for this although it never looses that rural feeling probably because of Jeff's voice, the first half of the album is particularly delightful with Black Moon being my personal choice probably because it feels intimate. The second half feels far more open and some purists may be able to argue against it, however the closing 3 tracks are among the best in the band's entire catalogue...

For the life of me I can't figure out why this is on so few people's charts. Wilco is definitely the most under appreciated band on this site.

This is an excellent album. It is much better than a lot of the albums on the 2011 list. I seriously think this album should be higher. In my opinion it should go Radiohead then Fleet Foxes then Wilco but whatever. The Whole Love is easily the best Wilco album since Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. The Whole Love needs to be listened to again and put up way higher. It's experimental and beautiful.
