Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Wilco albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in 1994, by ex-Uncle Tupelo guitarist Jeff Tweedy, Wilco meshed alternative country with indie rock, and experimental flourishes which were evident on their fourth album, the critically acclaimed Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2001).
To make it easy for you, we haven't included Wilco singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Wilco album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves - whether it be from the Jay Bennett era or the Nels Cline era or the interesting period in between. This list of popular Wilco CDs has been voted on by Tweedy fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
