Wilco, “Star Wars” review

Surprise. Wilco, of all artists, has sprung an album on us. A free album. And while releasing a record without warning is hardly even a surprise anymore -- hell, this is at least the second group this year that isn’t charging a single cent, either -- this has the vibe of the most wholesome and traditional of surprises.

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.
