8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 16th February 2015
I like Billy Bragg, but I'm not a huge fan -- but I do like Wilco so this collaboration with interested me. Basically, they've set previously unrecorded Woody Guthrie lyrics to music. Jeff Tweedy sings some songs, Billy Bragg sings some songs. As it turns out, the one Billy Bragg sings are the best - "Walt Whitman's Niece" with its call-and-answer structure, "I Guess I Planted" with its bluesy swagger and "Way Over Yonder In A Minor key" with the male/female duet between Bragg and Natalie Merchant are all fantastic. If you're not such a big Billy Bragg fan but like Americana, I would recommend this.
