Wilco opened its weekend stand at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday night with a an elongated and frustratingly static version of "One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley's Boyfriend)." The song, a fitting album closer to 2011's "The Whole Love," set a lifeless tone for what began as one of the most dispassionate Wilco performances in memory.

Live review: Wilco @ the Fillmore Auditorium

On Thursday night at the Fillmore, Wilco proved that yes, its most recent studio material can stand up against its hallowed back catalog. Indeed, new songs like "Art of Almost, "I Might" and "Dawned On Me" charged forward with ferocity, and could have easily been mistaken for "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" B-sides.

Album review: Wilco, “The Whole Love”

Wilco, “The Whole Love” (dBpm) Wilco’s eighth studio album of original material, “The Whole Love,” is the band’s best record in seven years. But, to quote lead singer Jeff Tweedy in a lyric from the group’s 1995 debut, “That’s not the issue.” When taken from afar, “The Whole Love” falls somewhere in the middle of a discography that’s one of the strongest of the past two decades of rock 'n' roll.
