About this album

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is the fourth album by Chicago-based rock band Wilco. The album was completed in 2001, but Reprise Records, a Warner Music Group label, refused to release it. Wilco acquired the rights to the album when they left the label. In September 2001, Wilco streamed the entire album for free on their website. Wilco signed with Nonesuch Records (another Warner label) in November of that year, and the album was officially released on April 23, 2002.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot was a critical and commercial success, and is their best selling album, with over 500,000 copies sold in the U.S. and topping the Pazz and Jop critics’ poll for 2002. Critical success endured, and the album was widely listed among the greatest albums of the 2000s in many popular publications, including 3rd place in Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 2000s. It was Wilco’s first album with drummer Glenn Kotche, and the last with multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Jay Bennett.

    It'll probably sound boring if you listen to it superficially. IMO the real beauty is in it's breathtaking production and the dark, gloomy atmosphere it creates. You take this and combine with solid lyrics, catchy moments, experimental moments, and you get this sonic masterpiece.

    What is so good about this album?. All I seem to remember from it is the bit where it goes Yankee Hotel Foxtrot over and over.

    I agree with Zajcik. This is one of the most overrated albums I've ever heard.

    Perfect album. The 9/11 comparisons might be untrue, but in a way they give a very interesting new meaning to the songs.
