Blogging My iPod #1 – Wilco / A. M.

I’ve been more or less sporadically accumulating music in my iTunes library for ages.  I’ve decided to make a point of listening to every album I have and saying something about each one.  I’m going alphabetical by album title.

The first one to come up is A. M. by Wilco.  I think I can safely say this is the least interesting, least “go to” album in the Wilco discography.  I never wake up and think “man, I wanna listen to A.M.”.  It’s basically only in my library because I love Wilco in general and I don’t want to not have one of their albums.  Isn’t that why you have Pablo Honey?  You know it is.  You never listen to it.

Anyhow, there are a few tracks on here that at least hold the potential of the Wilco music I love.  “Should’ve Been In Love” comes to mind.  “Dash 7” has a nice vibe, although it’s a little steel-guitary.  This is one of those albums that I won’t skip over when it comes up in shuffle mode but I almost never play on it’s own.
