Editors’ Notes

My Morning Jacket represent an interesting piece of rock terrain for 2008. Their influences are clearly retro, found in the ‘60s pop of Jimmy Webb and Glen Campbell (“Librarian”), the ‘70s AM soft-rock vibe of “Thank You, Too,” the southern rock full guitar and harmony attack of “I’m Amazed,” the nod to the Raspberries with “Two Halves,” and the nearly out of context falsetto, mock disco accents of the title track and “Highly Suspicious,” where singer Jim James sounds a bit like Beck imitating Prince. These eclectic juxtapositions keep this Louisville, Kentucky quintet entertained with themselves and that amusement sends out an excited aura that’s palpable throughout this sprawling, ambitious album. There’s still a little extra reverb in spots and lots of electric guitar to sift through (check the stereo mix of “Remnants” for old school guitar wars), but this is clearly their most straight-forward album to date. The best moments move quick, as it’s the album’s hummable midsection (“Librarian,” “Look At You” and the classic rock guitars of “Aluminum Park”) that carries this album to sweet victory.

American Dad brough me here! Thx Stan!!

introducing the best band today

if you have not seen these guys live then do so, but untill then this album will open a can of worms full of a broad range of sounds and influence. The album at first is odd and unfamiliar then it sinks into your head and you cant get the songs out. Sonically beautiful thi album knows when to press hard and when to keep it simple a must for any music junky

Best live band in North America

and another brilliant album by the best songwriter and singer of his generation. It's Jimi James' world right now, listen to him and his band, I know you'll love the ride.


Genre: Alternative

Starting in the late '90s and throughout the 2000s and 2010s, My Morning Jacket expanded on their rock and country roots, embracing everything from neo-psychedelia to funk, prog, and reggae in their sonic experimentation. By the time Evil Urges arrived in mid-2008, they had successfully molded themselves into Kentucky's answer to Wilco: a band rooted in alt-country and rock & roll, but given to sonic experimentation and unexpected genre changes at every turn. My Morning Jacket's de facto leader...
