    Aww...the ADHD generation can’t handle anything that isn’t instantly gratifying and hook-laden...how cute these kids are. When you’re mature enough for actual real music that pulses and glows with resonance and truth, come back to this album. Maybe, in say, 10 years when your training wheels come off...

    Absolute fan of this band since YHF. I get super-pumped for the new releases, and just like the last one, a complete letdown. While some reviewers here missed it on Star Wars, this album is devoid of hooks or anything upbeat for that matter. (I recommend people wishing for that to go back and listen to SW again and leave this thing be). These songs could’ve been nurtured a little more in my opinion and brightened up in the mix. Seemed like this material was just leftovers from the Tweedy solo records and they wanted to get back to the road and slapped together this um, piece together in a flash. So when the next album is due out, I’ll cool my jets and cross my fingers it’s not Warmest or Schmilco II. LET NELS ROCK

    This and their last couple of releases are really grating and hard to enjoy. This whole downtempo/lo-fi stuff they've been putting out lately is just not cutting it for this Wilco fan AT ALL! Come on guys, what's up with that? We all know you can do better! I don't know if Jeff is just in a rut or what, but man, they need to get their mojo back or something. PASS on this one. Very disappointing!
  • Best intentions...

    Every time I sit down to listen, I start out with the best of intentions, but ultimately my mind wanders and I start thinking about other things. It's spacious and pretty, sure, but it's also a snooze. Flowers are beautiful,as well, but sitting and staring at them gets boring after awhile.
  • What happened to Wilco..

    By enough with the nicknames
    Yikes. Ode to Joy is rythemless and rudderless, just like every album since Jay Bennett left the group after YHF. One or two decent songs stand out only because the rest are just so utterly forgetable. Bands evolve, yes, but this is so far from the terrific music Wilco made 15-20 years ago they should change the name of the band. I have tickets to an upcoming show, this will be deleted the morning after.
  • It takes several listens

    The album grew on me after several listens, their best since The Whole Love.
  • So Boring!

    I am a big Wilco fan, I gave this a try, and then gave up. Slow, boring, songs.
  • Excellent Effort

    I enjoy the subtle, almost hidden, complexity that each band member brings to the songs. For me this is craftsmanship and no one member is specifically outdoing the other, they all do what is right for the mood of the song. This is a good return to form. I cant wait to hear the songs live.

    I’m sorry, but this album slogs along at an unbearable (lack of) pace. I wish Jeff Tweedy would sing and not just mumble his way through every song. Why bother making this kind of music anymore?

    Used to love them years ago. There last bunch of albums seem monotonous and dull. Keep checking back to see if they have a 2nd life. That may be hopeless. Looks like some like it so I guess that’s good for them.
