Album Review

On their second album for Darla Records, My Morning Jacket sound perfect. That is to say, they haven't changed a bit, and we like them that way. At Dawn is full of the same strumming acoustic guitar, hauntingly treated vocals, elements of country and blues, and everything else that made The Tennessee Fire a magnificent country, rock, and Americana stew. When bandleader Jim James sings, "We start this time with open ears," you know you're heading into familiar territory, as open ears were what you needed the first time you took this trip with James and the rest of My Morning Jacket. Open ears led you through the stark and beautiful landscape of The Tennessee Fire, and now they take you on a similar trip, from the sunshine of "Lowdown," "The Way He Sings," and "Just Because I Do" to the rainy day appeal of "If It Smashes Down" and "I Needed It Most." Echoes of Galaxie 500, For Stars, and classic Americana (Neil Young, the Band, Dylan, the Velvet Underground, etc.) find their way into this record to varying degrees, but they seem to float along lending help and comfort, rather than showing themselves directly. Like Belle & Sebastian, My Morning Jacket's songs have remained essentially the same, and At Dawn is the sound of a band hitting its stride.

Customer Reviews

One of the most beautiful and touching albums of all time!

My Morning can I say? They are AMAZING. Some people look at their older albums (this one and their first, Tennessee Fire) and they think "booooring...slow folky...blah" but no you guys are so wrong. Jim James is one of the greatest singers of all time and unlike on "Evil Urges", on "At Dawn" his voice is what shines. The song writing is beautiful. I mean you hit the 1:30 mark on the song "At Dawn" and BOOM there it is. "Lowdown" and "The Way That He Sings" are also great. But really my two favorite songs on this album are "Bermuda Highway" which is just...just...I can't explain sends me shivers and of course "Xmas Curtain" which is a very happy song to go along with a very cheerful and upbeat album. This is My Morning Jacket's second or third best album in my opinion (Behind Z but possibly in front of Evil urges) and you MUST CHECK IT OUT. Wow.

pure unadulterated MMJ bliss

absolute pure bliss... the silo induced reverb is indescribable. I truly envy those that are awaiting hearing this album for the first time! Honestly there are a multitude of sound collages and differing styles to make this album extremely interesting. Do not miss the 1-2 punch to close the album of Phone Went West & Strangulation...classic MMJ & not to be missed

MMJ's best

I am a newcomer to the wonderful world of MMJ, and what an amazing world it is! At Dawn is the strongest record of the entire MMJ discography, imo. The melodies are consistently strong and creatively crafted throughout, and the lyrics alng with the echoing, lingering voice that Jim James injects into the songs is just soul touching. It's a familiar sound, but original and natural enough, especially with Jame's voice, that it is like nothing else. I have made my way through all of the albums, and "Lowdown" remains my #1 MMJ song to date, and many others like "Death Is My Sleazy Pay", and "Bermuda Highway" are close behind. The Album creates an atmosphere unlike any other, and keeps it alive, unlike "It Still Moves", which I found lost me about halfway through. This is a great place to start if you are new to MMJ! Get it, then get the others!


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...
