  1. Jun 23,  · A Ghost Is Born is the first album Wilco made entirely without Jay Bennett, the traditionalist foil whose influence reached its pinnacle on the ’s rootsy pop daydream Summerteeth.
  2. A Ghost Is Born is a Jeff Tweedy record. It says Wilco on the front but at this point Wilco were in a state of flux, in-between classic line-ups: after Jay Bennet had left and Jorgensen had joined, but before Cline and Pat Sansone had become a part of the crew.
  3. A Ghost Is Born is the fifth studio album by American alternative rock band Wilco. Released on June 22, , it features singer Jeff Tweedy on lead guitar more than any previous Wilco album. The band streamed the album online free, and offered a five-song EP to purchasers.

And much like post 70's Neil Young, this album is well intentioned, but mediocre at best. That's not to say that there aren't some strong songs here ("At Least That's What You Said," "Company In My Back," "Theologians")/5(9).
  6. The fifth in a line of lauded albums from the band that put the "w" in weird, "A Ghost is Born" is neither as sonically massive nor as immediately appealing as its predecessor. The drums are so quiet and the production so incurably shy that it is as though Wilco recorded the album from an underground bunker in the middle of a sibackrigepimilgihindsmoothmarburi.coinfos:
  7. If A Ghost Is Born has a flaw, it's in the songwriting; while this album is a "grower" if there ever was one, revealing more of its unexpected complexities with each spin, there are no songs here as immediately engaging as "War on War," "Heavy Metal Drummer," or "I'm the Man Who Loves You" from YHF, and while "Hummingbirds," "Handshake Drugs.
  8. A Ghost Is Born, an Album by Wilco. Released 22 June on Rhino (catalog no. ; Vinyl LP). Genres: Alternative Rock.
