Season 2 Episode 5: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Is Still Trying To Break Your Heart

Apr 24, 2017, 05:00 PM

This past weekend, one of the most revered rock records of the past few decades turned 15, which seemed like a good excuse to revisit Wilco's "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot." Back in the early 2000s, "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" was celebrated for many reasons — as a statement about 9/11 America, as an emblem for integrity in a corrupt music industry, and as a major leap forward artistically for one of the era's top rock bands. Since then, "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" has taken on the stature of a classic rock LP. But even if you love the album, when was the last time you actually played it? Steve decide to delve back into "YHF" with his friend and fellow critic Rob Mitchum to see if the magic is still there.
