    Wilco front-man and songwriting savant Jeff Tweedy's newest effort, the just released "Sukierae", seems most often to be compared to Wilco's late 1990s alt-folk efforts - 1996's "Being There" and 1999's "Sumerteeth" - mostly because of Tweedy's introspective, almost claustrophobically personal musical statements. While you can't argue with that vinyl psychoanalysis, you could say that "Sukierae" is more an expression of Tweedy's present and possible future rather than of Wilco's past.
