Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (1/23/97, p.44) - Ranked #6 on Rolling Stone's list of the "Ten Best Albums" of 1996.

Rolling Stone (11/14/96, pp.111-112) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Tweedy and his band break free from the confines of the narrow Tupelo legacy by exploring the nuances of noise and atmosphere....a product of ambitious versatility, particularly in the string-band textures conjured by...Max Johnston..."

Spin (11/96, pp.122-123) - 7 (out of 10) - "...trades unity in for riskier mood swings....For all his banjo-loving folksiness, he understands a simple secret: That rock'n'roll was invented to fly in the face of country's offer a few hot little minutes of joy..."

Entertainment Weekly (10/25/96, p.116) - "...Leader Jeff Tweedy's new songs--a sprawling mix of moody late-night ballads, and infectious pop-rock tunes--confront adult insecurities forthrightly and tunefully and document the maturation of a good band into a potentially great one." - Rating: A

Q (1/98, p.115) - Included in Q Magazine's "50 Best Albums of 1997."

Alternative Press (3/01, p.104) - Included in A.P.'s "10 Essential Alt-Country Albums" - "An eclectic, genre-shifting double-CD....BEING THERE covers much of the 1970s FM dial, yet displays consistent prowess on all stations."

Magnet (p.114) - "BEING THERE is a straight-up celebration of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle."

Option (11-12/96, p.89) - "...Tweedy doesn't rehash country cliches; he gets inside and makes them real....awkward but self-assured, lingering with a supreme melancholy that's offset by humor and humility and hope....doesn't so much introduce a new Wilco sound as document the process of searching for one..."

Village Voice (2/25/97) - Ranked #14 in the Village Voice's 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.

NME (Magazine) (12/20-27/97, pp.78-79) - Ranked #37 in NME's 1997 Critics' Poll.
