Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (5/9/02, pp.71-72) - 4 out of 5 stars - "...An earthy, moving psychedelia, eleven iridescent-country songs about surviving a blown mind and a broken heart....the enchanting sound of things falling apart-and gingerly, doggedly coming together again..."

Spin (1/03, p.70) - Ranked #2 on Spin's list of 2002's "Albums of the Year"

Spin (3/02, p.131) - "...The record includes fragments of treated piano, static interference, [and] random noises....YANKEE isn't your typical Americana or alt-country record..."

Q (May 2002, p.121) - 4 out of 5 stars - "...This elegant, world-weary...album ploughs enthusiastically into the leftfield..."

Uncut (1/03, p.94) - Ranked #4 in Uncut's "100 Best Albums of the Year" - "...Wilco's finest, its pretty electronic textures and melodicism making a heartbreaking album..."

CMJ (12/30/02, p.10) - Ranked #5 on CMJ's "Top 10 of 2002"

CMJ (4/22/02, p.4) - "...[A] beautifully strange mix of organic textures and oblique poetics, all of it gently pulsating with a backwoodsy tech-head feel..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.26) - Ranked #26 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "Jeff Tweedy suffers personal crisis and pines for innocence lost before eventually arriving at a redemption of sorts."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/03, p.73) - Ranked #4 in Mojo's "Best Albums of 2002"

Mojo (Publisher) (5/02, p.99) - "...Truly, a remarkable record..."

NME (Magazine) (4/20/02, p.22) - 8 out of 10 - "...it's a gripping darkness that doesn't often lift. It's hard going but worth it, and that is undoubtedly their point."

Paste (magazine) - "It's Tweedy's growth as a lyricist that's most arreting....Tweedy alternates subtle and startling twists of phrase to paint pictures of intense longing, wistful nostalgia, moments of pure joy and utter despair."
