At the center of every album is a musical thesis. Wilco’s “A Ghost Is Born” sounds like an open wound right over the heart. With every song, emotion pulses, beats and escapes to the surface. Part somber and part ambient sounds, this album attempts and succeeds at things few rock albums have ever achieved. Each song makes you feel something while at the same time leaving you to search your own heart for true meaning. Most of what is presented here is open to interpretation. As you work through each level of self-defined significance, keep a single thought in mind; Wilco is one the great American rock bands. Why? Because they make you feel something, even when they say nothing at all.
Be good to each other,
