Released: 18 September 2001 – 20 years ago today
Pitchfork wrote: “After half a year living with a bootleg copy, the music remains
revelatory. Complex and dangerously catchy, lyrically sophisticated and provocative,
noisy and somehow serene, Wilco’s aging new album is simply a masterpiece; it is equally magnificent in headphones, cars and parties… Beneath the great story of Yankee Hotel
Foxtrot, there are all the tropes and symbols and coincidences of a little mythology; but
under that is a fantastic rock record. And why tell you? You all already knew this.”
Full review here. Score: 10/10.
