Most of the tracks borrow from different eras of the band’s career, and the record marks their best since 2004′s A Ghost Is Born.

The Whole Love is a finely-tuned, determinedly subtle album, full of discreet touches and unassuming flourishes that can often only be gleaned when paying very close attention.

The Whole Love is a solid return for Wilco, and hopefully them pushing their sound in more new directions as they have done here.

The Whole Love proves the band is still moving forward, still changing, even if it’s not in the lofty ways we expect it to.

There’s songs that are more ambitious and some that are more successful, but all of them fit as a cohesive whole

The Whole Love is precisely an answer to those who relegate the kind of music Wilco makes as old-timey.

The weird, winsome Whole Love is certainly Wilco's least consistent LP in a while, but inconsistency has its own rewards.
