Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot download 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 subsequently left the label. Wilco signed with Nonesuch Records (another Warner label) in November of that year, and the album was officially released on April 23, 2002.

If anything Yankee Hotel Foxtrot will go down as a cultural artifact, and all you have to do is listen to the lyrics to understand the nature of Wilco’s being. The Fun Facts: Chicagoans can recognize the identical towers featured on the album cover, they’ve been know by different names, there’s the original official title, Marina City’, and then there's the colloquial ‘Corn Cob Towers’, though since 2001 they’ve been known as ‘The Wilco Towers’. The buildings housed the radio station WCFL, along with the Chicago Tribune

But since Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, it has retroactively become more of a harbinger of things to come. Upon being pressed by the Chicago Sun-Times about abandoning alt-country, Tweedy dismissively bequeathed the old Wilco sound to Ryan Adams. And you can never go home again. So does Yankee Hotel Foxtrot justify the controversy, delay and buzz? Everyone, I think, already knows that the answer is yes; all I can offer is "me too" and reiterate. And after half a year living with a bootleg copy, the music remains revelatory.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Released September 18, 2001. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Tracklist. 1. I Am Trying to Break Your Heart Lyrics. Considered by many to be Wilco’s magnum opus - and an album which seemed like it might never see the light of day. The album was recorded in late 2000 and early 2001 at the band’s Chicago studio, The Loft. Upon hearing it, their label, Warner Bros. Reprise Records, asked them to change the album, something the band was unwilling to do. Instead, months later and with the record in tow, Wilco signed to Nonesuch Records - another Warner Bros.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is the fourth album by Chicago-based rock band Wilco. Wilco acquired the rights to the album when they left the label.

Unwilling to change the album to make it more commercially viable, the band bought the finished studio tapes from Warner/Reprise for 50,000 dollars and left the label altogether. The turmoil surrounding the recording and distribution of the album in no way diminishes the sheer quality of the genre-spanning pop songs written by frontman Jeff Tweedy and his bandmates.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is a subliminal album. Spin it once and it barely registers. Play it five or six times and its vaporous, insinuating, rusty-carousel melodies start to carve out a permanent orbit in your skull. There's love, there's the war on terror, and for Wilco, both are a battlefield. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot' sees the former country rockers streamlining their sound down to a painful bareness, and telling us how they hurt.

When I first heard Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, I felt like I'd just discovered my new favourite band. It wasn't an instant favourite, but sometimes you can just tell when an album is going to grow on you like nobody's business, and this did - and the excitement and discovering the album's secrets were matched by my excitement at hearing what else this band has done. Does the fact that they've since turned out to basically be a one-album wonder make this more or less special" I'm not sure. But long after the initial glow has worn off, I can still turn to this album.
