Wilco - The Whole Love
The album rollercoasts from speaker-melting guitar solos (Art of Almost) to contemplative comedowns (Sunloathe, Black Moon) to recorded bells and a town crier (Capitol City). They have ideas to burn, but the best moment here is the simplest: the sublimeOne Sunday Morning, based around a folk guitar motif of such beauty it never outstays its welcome during 12 epic minutes.
The title track may be the album's secret weapon. It bounces along with Tweedy's falsetto singing, “I know that I won't be/the easiest to set free,” but he wants to give love a chance. The “whole love” of the title isn't that hard to figure out. It's about knowing when to give all the love you have to someone or something. If listeners return the love even half as much as the band has dished it out, both parties will be highly satisfied.
