It can be difficult for an alternative rock band to continue to bring forth fresh music, but Wilco has seemed to maintain somewhat of a cult following since 1995. Since the announcement of The Whole Love's
release, fans have wondered if the sextet would take on a similar experimental approach to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
(2002) or settle into the bucolic comfort of 2007's Sky Blue Sky
. After much speculation, Wilco has delivered an album that demonstrates exactly what they want to be playing and what listeners want to hear.
