This is a really easy going album, great for a wet and cold afternoon with a roaring fire. "Way Over Yonder in the Minor Key" is the best track, but as a whole it's great. Woody's family can be assured that Billy and co. have done well by them.

A ghost, a band, a troubadour. Easily the strangest co-op project ever, and easily one of the finest and most evocative albums of the year. British socialist and folkie Billy Bragg was given unprecedented access to Woody Guthrie's unrecorded lyrics. Teaming up with alt-country band Wilco and quoting from more than 50 years of country, folk, and rock music, Billy and company bring Guthrie's politics, poetry, and morality to the end of the century and prove he's as necessary now as ever.--Tod Nelson
