Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is the fourth album by Chicago-based rock band Wilco. The album was completed in 2001, but Reprise Records, a Warner Music Group label, refused to release it. Wilco acquired the rights to the album when they subsequently left the label. Wilco signed with Nonesuch Records (another Warner label) in November of that year, and the album was officially released on April 23, 2002.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Released September 18, 2001. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Tracklist. 1. I Am Trying to Break Your Heart Lyrics. Considered by many to be Wilco’s magnum opus - and an album which seemed like it might never see the light of day. The album was recorded in late 2000 and early 2001 at the band’s Chicago studio, The Loft. Upon hearing it, their label, Warner Bros. Reprise Records, asked them to change the album, something the band was unwilling to do. Instead, months later and with the record in tow, Wilco signed to Nonesuch Records - another Warner Bros.

So does Yankee Hotel Foxtrot justify the controversy, delay and buzz? Everyone, I think, already knows that the answer is yes; all I can offer is "me too" and reiterate. And after half a year living with a bootleg copy, the music remains revelatory. Complex and dangerously catchy, lyrically sophisticated and provocative, noisy and somehow serene, Wilco's aging new album is simply a masterpiece; it is equally magnificent in headphones, cars and parties. And as anyone who's seen the mixed-bag crowd at Wilco shows knows, it will find a home in the collections of hippies, frat.

Unwilling to change the album to make it more commercially viable, the band bought the finished studio tapes from Warner/Reprise for 50,000 dollars and left the label altogether. The turmoil surrounding the recording and distribution of the album in no way diminishes the sheer quality of the genre-spanning pop songs written by frontman Jeff Tweedy and his bandmates.

Now; this album, "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" the Wilco album I'm most familiar with. Different listen than the digital copy I owned a few years back.

Album · 2002 · 11 Songs. Having hinted at their art-rock ambitions on 1999’s Summerteeth, Wilco goes all in here. For every nod to the winsome songcraft of Bob Dylan, there's a burst of avant-noise rock or a bloom of psychedelic freakiness. Strings, slide guitar, synths, glockenspiel-the group leaves no sound unturned. The spirited pageant is anchored by the weathered vocals of Jeff Tweedy, who mixes free-associative lyrics with poignant observations of angst and despair. As he states plainly, he's "trying to break your heart. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Wilco.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is the fourth album by Chicago-based rock band Wilco. Wilco acquired the rights to the album when they left the label.

When I first heard Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, I felt like I'd just discovered my new favourite band. It wasn't an instant favourite, but sometimes you can just tell when an album is going to grow on you like nobody's business, and this did - and the excitement and discovering the album's secrets were matched by my excitement at hearing what else this band has done. Does the fact that they've since turned out to basically be a one-album wonder make this more or less special" I'm not sure. But long after the initial glow has worn off, I can still turn to this album.
