Being There is the second studio album by the American alternative rock band Wilco, released on October 29, 1996 by Reprise Records. Despite its release as a double album, Being There was sold at a single album price as a result of a deal between lead singer Jeff Tweedy and the band's label Reprise Records. The album was an improvement for the band in both sales and critical reception, in contrast to their debut album .
Wilco (The Album) is the seventh studio album by American alternative rock group Wilco which was released June 30, 2009. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. After Wilco released their sixth studio album, Sky Blue Sky, in 2007, they spent the following two years touring to promote the album.
Wilco's 10th album is a sparse, mostly acoustic collection of songs united by an old-timey cartoon cover and a Harry Nilsson-inspired title. It's also a marked departure from 2015's Star Wars, though both came from the same recording sessions. What makes Schmilco the superior release-and the best we've heard from Wilco since 2009's Wilco (The Album)-is its stripped down, no-frills charm. Few bands have progressed as markedly from first to second to third to fourth album as Wilco. was essentially an Uncle Tupelo album, Being There saw the band assert its own identity for the first time and Summerteeth was a step toward real pop artistry, then Yankee Hotel Foxtrot was the full realization of this artistry. It's the rare album that is a true album, an impenetrable whole greater than the sum of its parts, punctuated with bursts of radio noise and sound manipulation.

After the recording sessions were complete, Reprise Records rejected the album and dismissed Wilco from the label. Both record labels are subsidiaries of Warner Music Group, leading one critic to say the album showed "how screwed up the music business is in the early twenty-first century.

Year of Release: 1995. Appears in: 89 charts. Wilco is truly artistic and free of corporate restrictions. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is a brilliant album which in time I hope will amount to a classic.
