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 is a subliminal album. Spin it once and it barely registers. Play it five or six times and its vaporous, insinuating, rusty-carousel melodies start to carve out a permanent orbit in your skull. This album is iconic and absolutely deserves all the praise it gets.

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.

But since Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, it has retroactively become more of a harbinger of things to come. Upon being pressed by the Chicago Sun-Times about abandoning alt-country, Tweedy dismissively bequeathed the old Wilco sound to Ryan Adams. And you can never go home again. 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.

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.

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is close kin to Tupelo’s unplugged third LP, March 16-20, 1992. But Wilco’s record is even closer, in ambition and texture, to the garage-art splendor of the Beatles’ White Album. In both cases, the roots always show through, and the noise never gets in the way of the song. Make no mistake: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is a rock & roll record. The rolling beat and gleaming steel guitar of Pot Kettle Black should reassure . era Wilco fans that the band is building on its original strengths, not turning from them. When Wilco toured with these songs across the .

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.

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.

Wilco will forever be one of those bands from which I pick and choose which songs ride best in my back pocket, with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot being another. That being said, others have suggested that the album is nothing short of complex, dangerously catchy, provocative and lyrically sophisticated, along with being both noisy and oddly serene … if not a downright masterpiece, which to my way of thinking is a lot to live up to, offering zero room for any faults whatsoever. I on the other hand, do not think that the album is all that majestic, quite good yes, yet hardly able to live up to the hype, though if one remembers what the airwaves were full of in 2002, it’s rather easy to understand the impression this record had on listeners across the spectrum, from an album that was perhaps the most talked about event of the year. But, and again there’s always a but … it’s important to be able to separate the social construct of the album, it’s free delivery over the internet, the radical departure of the band from their record label, and the music held within these grooves.In essence the record brings forth a reality of provocative moving psychedelic earthy iridescent tracks, a mix of alternative rocking country inspired songs regarding the the survival of both a blown mind and a broken heart. Yes, Wilco do manage to create a sonic atmosphere where things sound as if they’re falling apart and then coming back together again, vividly, filled with chaos, remorse and a great deal of story telling.In the same breath I could easily say that Tweedy and company have been taking a sidestep from their alternative county orthodoxy for a while now, and never more so than here with the their cryptic power pop influences that eerily teeter this way and that, yet seem rooted in solid ground. If anything Yankee Hotel Foxtrot does not take place in front of you, it’s more that it’s happening in the rearview mirror, as if you’ve passed through this event quickly and come to embrace it from two vantage points, as if to live in the present with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot might just shatter your tentative hold on life. While the music might unrecognizably be drawn from previous outings, Tweedy’s unbalanced and surreal demons are all over this record, often causing me to wonder why he’s not sitting alone in the dark with a needle and a spoon full time, giving up on life, perpetually searching for the next fast-food joint. Though (laughing), there’s a kind of universal honesty found in these lyrics that draw you in until you recognized them as being part of you. Others have tried and failed, while Wilco manage to have created a record that builds, it’s a process, where anyone of these tracks could easily lead into any other, spiraling skyward, deconstructing, falling in on itself, and then by sheer force of will, re-establishing itself with a physical presence. To this day I’m not sure how structurally sound the layering is on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, that being said, it’s still standing due to the fact that the album is one designed to age, where most people dismissed or embraced the album as interesting, then at some point found that they couldn’t live without it, as it sonically changed the conceptual nature of the musical landscape we were living in.This is a record on which Wilco shed their skin, and to this day I don’t believe they been able to find anything suitable to wear full-time, where if you’re a fan of the documentary “Ashes Of American Flags,” released a few years later, you’ll better understand the intensity and the magnitude of the sound Wilco was living in and need to excise … where in retrospect, I think that tour just about blew the doors off of everyone, including the band, as Jeff seems a bit more lo-fi now.Of course from there I could say that Wilco (Jeff Tweedy) have perfected their own sense of insecurity on this ultimate hipster record in an effort to manipulate, using self deprecation and vulnerability to prey upon the needs of the masses and thus feeding their own egos, while at other times lyrically sounding (“I am trying to break your heart, But still I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t easy …”) sophomorically vengeful, as did Kerouac, Salinger and Bukowski, all whom were idyllically amoral, without the skills necessary to love and be loved by even themselves, that the album has been infused with resentment, compromised by its dedication to barriers and the refusal to break through them.If anything Yankee Hotel Foxtrot will go down as a cultural artifact, and all you have to do is listen to the lyrics to understand the nature of Wilco’s being.*** The Fun Facts: Chicagoans can recognize the identical towers featured on the album cover, they’ve been know by different names, there’s the original official title, “Marina City’, and then there's the colloquial ‘Corn Cob Towers’, though since 2001 they’ve been known as ‘The Wilco Towers’. The buildings housed the radio station WCFL, along with the Chicago Tribune. As to the album’s title: The album was named after a series of letters in the phonetic alphabet that Tweedy had heard on the Irdial box set The Conet Project: Recordings of Shortwave Numbers Stations. On the fourth track of the album, a woman repeats the words "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" numerous times; a clip from this Numbers Station transmission was placed in the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot song "Poor Places". Irdial sued Wilco for copyright infringement, and a settlement was reached out of court.On a side note: The band was tempted to keep the Uncle Tupelo name, but ultimately decided to rename the band. The group named itself ‘Wilco’ after the military and commercial aviation radio voice abbreviation for ‘will comply’, a choice which Tweedy has called “A fairly ironic choice for a rock band to name themselves.”Review by Jenell Kesler
One of the best sounding records I own. Wilco have been doing vinyl right since at least this release. (the original Summerteeth wasn't so great on wax, but the 2009 remaster sounded great)
My copy of this release included a warped disc 1 but not enough defect to interfere with playback. The center hole was not cut cleanly and required some attention. The noise floor is quite low with very a few occasional pops (not cleaned). Sound stage is very big with great separation. The bottom end is good and frequencies are linear across the board. Highs are crisp and slightly bright. Midrange is strong and vocals have a very natural tone. Guitars are accurate and delicate. Overall a great mix and solid pressing.

Side 3 is labeled on each side of disc 2 on the copy I have. Anyone else?
Ha! I've got side one labels on both sides of disc one. Whoever was applying labels that day was having a hard time telling them apart.
