Single Review – Wilco – If I Ever Was A Child

The well-travelled and well-versed Wilco, fronted by the similarly versatile Jeff Tweedy have established themselves among the best in alt-rock. Their last LP, Star Wars is symbolic of the two sides of Wilco, both the country and the rock elements infused into their music. Their latest single If I Ever Was a Child highlights the former. Laid-back and much cleaner than some of the distorted tracks on Star Wars, Tweedy’s voice is smooth and sits on the track nicely. As good as the track is you can’t help but feel it is more than a little routine for Wilco and surely there are better and more interesting songs to come on their Schmilco LP which is released on September 9th.
