Shouldn't Be Ashamed
Label: Sire/Warner Records
Wilco's first record after the dissolution of Uncle Tupelo continues on an unsurprising trajectory previously mapped by Tupelo's Anodyne. The songs are great, almost lighthearted country-rock songs. "I Must Be High" and "Box Full Of Letters" show Jeff Tweedy's infatuation with classic pop forms, but Wilco was made for greater things -- as later records would show.
