„Tweedy has left his notional alt country contemporaries eating dust in the middle of the road. This is modern punk rock soul music, equally indebted to John Fahey and Neil Young as to Aphex Twin and The Clash. And yes, to The Beatles at all times. Truly, a remarkable record.” (MOJO)
“Ah, finally, the most-bootlegged record of 2001 gets its proper introduction to the masses. After frontman Jeff Tweedy delivered Yankee Hotel Foxtrot to his former label, Reprise, and discovered that execs there found it "rough" and in need of a serious overhaul, he made a deal to buy back the master and shop it to a more in-tune home. Eventually Nonesuch won the honors, and here we are, able to hear what is - through no easy decision - Wilcoþs crown jewel. Produced by Jim OþRourke, Tweedy and Co. find a voice for their beautifully strange mix of organic textures and oblique poetics, all of it gently pulsating with a backwoodsy tech-head feel. The pure hopefulness of the picked notes and swooping keys on "Kamera" glimmer, while other entries simply grab for every string in oneþs dried-up cynical hear

two tracks in particular couldþve been based on the aftermath of Sept. 11 had they not been written so long before it. The dizzying psych-rock of ûûWar On Warûû pulses as Tweedy croons, ûûYouþre gonna lose/ You have to lose/ You have to learn how to die,ûû just as the steel-tipped ûûJesus, Etc.ûû makes mention of skyscrapers rocking and reeling as people weep and reach for last cigarettes. Top it off with a thread of plucky soulfulness (ûûHeavy Metal Drummerûû is the best ode to stickmen since Pavementþs ûûCut Your Hairûû), and itþs apparent that Wilco is the unifying voice America really needs right now.” (CMJ)
