Album Review

The proliferation of My Morning Jacket releases continues unabated with Chocolate and Ice, a 40-minute EP that further refines and expands the scope of Jimi James' increasingly singular musical identity. Although "Such Protection From My Bed" and "Sooner" are vintage MMJ (i.e., ghostlike rural psychedelia), "Cobra" is a 24-minute exploration as serpentine as its title, beginning with an oddly funky drum-machine rhythm before mutating into a lumbering, bluesy jam that itself transforms to become an epic drone soundscape. "It's Been a Great 3 or 4 Years" is no less jarring, a seemingly interminable answering machine message purportedly left by James' cousin — pure filler. But "Holy" and "Sweetheart" more than make up for it, in particular the string-sweetened former; say what you like about James, but he's never predictable.

Customer Reviews

just listen...

i have found this to be a really great album from a really great band. i know that in the future, when these guys are looked back at while doing their 40th anniversary reunion tours, this is probably an album that will be greatly trivialized as a "minor production" from what was an 'otherwise legendary' band - like led zeppelin's "coda". or pink floyd's "obscured by clouds". or modest mouse's "fruit that ate itself" or "sad sappy sucker". but if you just give it a listen, you will find a great hard-working band, producing some of the most experimental work they'll do for half a decade. and i know tracks like 3 and 4 aren't the most common pop-structured bits, but if you start the album and get through the first two, and then like what you hear at the beginning of cobra, stay with it. that song just grooves(!) and then wanders a bit, and then just goes and goes... it's beautiful. and it's only 5.99! just get it for cryin' out loud.

cobra is the best song on the album

since cobra is 42 mins, you cant just buy the song but just buy the whole album cause it is well worth it, the song has so many elements to it, all you need is some headphones and a dark room and youll be in heaven.

If you buy one song...........

Make it..... Sooner, this is the first song I heard by this band and altho' they have a different version (the better one actually- a little slower paced) this tune just fits the beach scene on a late afternnon sun ....it really seemed to go with the parasailers, most mmj fans don't talk of this one but it is truly a hidden gem.
