In the beginning...

theenddecay

My Morning Jacket sounded like this. The production isn't very good here. Jim James uses a lot of reverb. This one just doesn't warrant many listens, and I have to say that it's due to the quality of the recording. If the album were remastered, then I might like it a lot more. For completists like myself, I had to add this to my MMJ collection, but their later albums are much better and sound better.

Great Mournful Album

Urthstripe

Cascading behind mountains of reverb is a caterwaul of a yelp that beautifully tries, unsuccessfully, to call back whatever, whoever, left him. That is the basis of this album. And it is fantastic.

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

My Morning Jacket is a four-piece band from Louisville, KY, led by singer/songwriter Jim James. The songs on Tennessee Fire (Darla 1999) evoke warm (and somewhat lonely) memories of a gothic country night. Electric and acoustic guitars, harmonica, lap-steel, drums and bass all join his unique (Neil Young meets Wayne Coyne) voice in a huge pool of reverb. At first you wonder if the sound will overtake the songs, but after the first chorus you realize that the beauty of these simple and emotive songs is only enhanced by the addition of this effect, and by the end of the first song, you can’t even tell that it’s there. Released to (world) wide critical acclaim, Tennessee Fire provides proof (200 proof) that heartfelt American music is alive and well, and living in KY. A must for anyone who loves the sound of alt-country mixed with wide-open spaces. – Terrance Miles
