Smoke Notes

Jeff Tweedys Wilco just keeps getting better, painting a broad canvas of mournful ballads, spacious country and southern rock. A Ghost Is Born is one of those records that you listen to whilst the whole time quietly contented at the quality and knowledge that its depth is going to make it a lasting favorite - literally something to dig your "listening" teeth into. The addition of post-rock journeyman Jim ORourke before Yankee Foxtrot left many fans puzzled, but as he proved on that record, and even more here, it's his sonic manipulation and laptop charm that have given the group a new and satisfyingly original direction. Of course Tweedys songwriting is still astounding. The epic Spiders (Kidsmoke) begins in familiar territory - pop tinged country-rock - before moving into the sort of jam youd expect of Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Opener At Least Thats What You Said holds a certain ambience, a texture that gives its simplistic structure an unheard depth and meaning. Tweedys lyrics bring to mind Road-movies, loneliness and broken-hearts - a potent brew that works when delivered in his world-weary voice. Wishful Thinking is a good example of the often-dreamy state of the album, a Cowboy song for a new generation of urban drifters, a romantic call for an easier way of living. Less Than You Think is a 15-minute journey through treated piano, loops and noise and somehow ends up being hauntingly powerful. You wont hear a better album than A Ghost Is Born in 2004 trust us, and yet so many are still to discover the joys of this brilliant group. Effortlessly moving through emotion and mood, this is a complex record that draws you in to it's every detail. Why wait to read about this in all the end of year "best of" lists when you can hear it now ? Highly recommended.
