Each album deserves a fair listen and review without bringing the other into the equation. So Tweedy's "Wilco (the album)'', released last week, is going into the player first. Farrar's "American Central Dust'', which is out today, will follow in due time.
Followers of the bands are fortunate to have two discs like this, back to back, to help make it through the summer. It's kind of like having two fields of knee-high corn by the Fourth of July. You're not sure how they're going to turn out, but the prospects are very promising indeed.
