Impossible Germany

I'm just listening to the new Wilco record, and to the third track, Impossible Germany. It's one of those superb, effortlessly beautiful songs with the incredible guitar work of Nels Cline stamped all over it. This track is perhaps the most similar to A Ghost Is Born, it begins with a simple minor riff, and the verse progresses in a minimalistic style with dashes of lead guitar over the top. After a couple of verses Nels gets free reign to release one of his perfect solos that we heard on the Kicking Television record. Wilco improve so much with him in the band, he's not flash and restrains himself from showing off preferring to play what's necessary for the benefit of the song.

Anyway, it's a great song. The rest of the album's not bad either.
