Wilco – Kicking Television: Live in Chicago Nonesuch 79903-2 (2005)
I found this album tremendously disappointing. Wilco spends most of the record trying to pander to the audience by over-emphasizing the sappiest elements of their music. Kicking Television is a paradigmatic attempt to appeal to an audience’s bad taste. These live recordings add nothing to the studio versions, save a few awkwardly tacked on guitar solos. There are rewarding moments, but they are lost in a sea of mediocrity.
