Stark vocals w/ down home jams

The album is carried by the reverberating guitar and lyrics, but the intensity/urgency of tracks 2,3,5,6,11 make it stellar.

Definitely not their best

It's actually surprising how much I don't like this album when you consider how much I like Z, Evil Urges, and It Still Moves. "The Way That He Sings" is the only song that I ever really got into from this album. Maybe I should keep trying.

eMusic Selects: Strand of Oaks

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

[eMusic Selects is a program designed by eMusic to give exposure to unsigned or undersigned bands. This month's selections are Strand of Oaks and Family Band] In 2003, Tim Showalter's house burned down, his fiancée broke up with him, and he resorted to writing songs on an acoustic guitar while living on park benches in suburban Philadelphia. Those events informed the entirety of his arresting debut, Leave Ruin, an album about loss and brokenness and lack… more »

Six Degrees of Kings of Leon’s Aha Shake Heartbreak

By Yancey Strickler, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

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. – Terrance Miles
