About this album

Summerteeth is the third studio album by Chicago alternative rock band Wilco. Released through Reprise Records on March 9, 1999, the album was heavily influenced lyrically by twentieth century literature, as well as singer Jeff Tweedy’s marital problems. Unlike previous albums, Summerteeth was heavily overdubbed in the studio with Pro Tools. Tweedy and Jay Bennett created most of the album in the studio, a contrast to the band’s previous albums, which were rehearsed live and recorded almost at once.

Despite critical acclaim from numerous outlets, including Allmusic, The Chicago Tribune, and The Village Voice, Summerteeth sold approximately 200,000 copies—a modest number compared to the sales of 1996’s Being There. Wilco agreed to remix “Can’t Stand It” with David Kahne to cater to radio markets, but the single failed to attain substantial airplay.

    I only bought this album cos I saw the video for 'Instant Street' by dEUS and assumed they were Wilco. Pretty great mistake to have made

    magnificent stuff. Never thought I'd like another Wilco album as much as Yankee but it seems here we are...

    so much tunefulness in this album. Every single second in this record is worth anyone's love.

    Gets better every listen. Call me a hipster, but I like this more than Yankee Hotel Foxtrott.

    A.M. is definitely not a throwaway record. Passenger Side, Pick Up The Change, and Box Full Of Letters? Come on now, they don't HAVE a weak record in their entire catalog.

    This is where Wilco went from being your average alt.country band to the monster they have become. A.M. is a throwaway record, and you saw a glimmer of genius on "Being There," but this is when everything clicked for them.

    Best Wilco Album. Not a single weak track, whereas YHF has several. Deal with it.

    alright, so I have found YHF to be Wilco's best but Summerteeth comes closely behind. it still has a diversity that can't be beat by YHF.

    Y'know, this might be their best album. I just wish it was mastered better. Total loudness war victim, no dynamics.
