Do Your Ears A Favor: Wilco - "Impossible Germany"

Do your ears a favor ... and rock out to "Impossible Germany" by Wilco.

Any lazy day under clouds or sunshine can be enhanced with this song. The first two-minutes and thirty-seconds of the song are great but not exceptional. But they lay down an absolutely wonderful foundation to one of the greatest guitar solos of all time.

The production in the song is so clean and crisp, mixed and balanced so perfectly, and the tone in the guitars are so beautiful. It's three minutes of guitar-solo-masturbation. And - I say this in the best possible way - it's the kind of solo that would fit perfectly in the mid-1970s, probably in an Eagles song.

It's just that good.
