Ode to Joy
ADDS 10/15/19

Wilco’s 11th album is direct and spacious, centering on the beauty of quiet revelation.” – Pitchfork album review (7.8)

Ode to Joy reminds us of how good the band can be with the benefit of time and deliberation.” – Consequence of Sound (B)

“The songs here are simple, but they contain multitudes.” – Uncut (9/10)

“…both an affirmation of love’s enduring power and a warning that it could be undermined at any moment.” – NPR’s All Songs Considered

“It’s raw elegance; a surplus of creativity delivered with equal portions of restraint” – Sputnickmusic (4.2/5)

“This is a sparse, minimalist ode to joy” – Mojo (8/10)

“Such moments of challenging, bold experimentation, coupled with a set of by turns desolate and uplifting, strange and sweet tunes, makes Ode to Joy mandatory listening for anyone interested in the enduring creative potential of rock – sorry, folk – music.” – The Line Of Best Fit (8.5/10)

“It all adds up to yet another winning set from a band still (yet) to release a subpar album in a 25-year career.” – The Observer (4/5)

Ode to Joy is the culmination of a musical evolution Wilco have been working towards for years. Ode to Joy holds a microscope to the small moments of life – which, thanks to the current political landscape, we’re often in danger of missing – and encourages us to see and cherish them.” – NME (4/5)

Ode To Joy shows off some of Wilco’s prettiest and most comforting songs, Tweedy’s enlarged heart transplanted back into a band — its lineup now unchanged for roughly half of its 25-year history — that’s never sounded more empathic.” – Rolling Stone (4/5)
