Wilco's A.M.. Available here on Double LP, Standard LP and CD.
When uncle tupelo, the band that defined '90s alt-country, split into two camps, jay farrar's son volt took the relatively arty road while jeff tweedy upped the rock and roll grit quotient with wilco. on wilco's debut album, the band sounds righteously ragged, charging along behind tweedy in a manner suggestive of the rootsier moments of the stones and / or the replacements. the occasional appearance of acoustic guitar, banjo or a 2/4 beat serves to remind us of tweedy's roots. still, 'am' has the sound of a band already well on their way to the gloriously chaotic rock and roll nirvana they would reach on the follow-up 'being there'.
