Biography

“The new record, Circuital, is named after the title song,” explains Jim James, of My Morning Jacket’s sixth studio album. “On that song I sing about ending up in the same place where you started out. And that makes a lot of sense for this album… I hate the phrase ‘going back to our roots’, but for this record we came home and made it in Kentucky. And ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

My Morning Jacket are a five-piece rock group from Louisville, Kentucky--a town that, to judge by It Still Moves, has been somehow prevented from hearing any musical innovation or development that has occurred since about 1974. It Still Moves is constructed exclusively from influences dating from before any of the band were born: the harmonies of Crosby, Stills & Nash, the chugging guitar of Neil Young, the swagger of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the brass of prime Stax soul. Even the production refuses to have anything to do with modern methods, laden with reverb and sounding like it was recorded in a barn (given My Morning Jacket's rural background, this probably is not impossible).

For all that, It Still Moves sounds like something more than a faithfully observed period piece. Perhaps because the band are all too young to have heard their favourite records in their original context, they approach them with a naive freshness that makes these ancient sounds feel like living things. Like the Kings of Leon, and to a slightly lesser extent the White Stripes, My Morning Jacket are young people making old music. When it works--the fabulously self-pitying "Dancefloors", which builds to a giddy climax of horns is a particular highlight--that's more than enough. --Andrew Mueller

4.0 out of 5 stars It Still Rocks 1 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I grew up listening to older brothers' music, which consisted of Crosby, Stills etc, Neil Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd etc. Incessantly. This albums sounds like all these guys got together in someone's barn one weekend and had one humdinger of a jam, with it all recorded for posterity on a 4 track. More upbeat and rockier than previous MMJ, some great guitar work, real drums, well penned songs, great fun. In a way, comparing them to all these old bands doesnt do MMJ justice, there're more than a period tribute band. Dancefloors rocks, Golden has some good accoustic guitar work, the handover between Easy Morning Rebel and Run Thru sounds exciting, not something you can say that often nowadays. Probably wont grab you at first, there's a lot of music. If you like electric Americana with homespun feel then this should push buttons. Anyway they must be good - all good bands have daft names.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure jacketed brilliance 17 Aug 2009
By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a recent convert to 'My Morning Jacket' and a very happy one too, I am in the process of getting all of thier recordings and this is the third I bought. It is twelve tracks long and it would be unfair to call any of them fillers, although their broad styles may be a bit too 'Catholic' for some tastes. That said they have retained thier alt country routes with much more being thrown in and with dramatically impressive results. The opening 'Mahgeetah' is just stunning and has a very typical trait of having a false ending then comes back with even more cracking guitar riffs. Compare that to 'Golden' and it would be easy to think they were from two completely different bands as it is more laid back guitar plucking and summer afternoon dreamy, and I mean that in a very good way.There is the heartbreakingly honest and soulful 'Just one thing' which just adds to the rich mix of styles and use of an almost wall of sound aural brilliance. I have also got thier live 'Okonokos' album where some of these tracks are played and they are even better. A wonderful band and a wonderful record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too long but It Still Moves me (8.5/10) 15 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
The Louisville, Kentucky band's third full-length is a whopping 75-minute set recorded in a grain silo and positively swimming in reverb. By eschewing modern recording techniques altogether they are taking a big risk on this, their first for a major label, but is with the swagger of a hard-touring band that they silence the doubters. For 'It Still Moves' is an epic take on classic Americana, an unashamed poem to the redemtive power of the guitar solo, sometimes affording some extraordinarily satisfying rocking out. But there are also the swooning ballads in Jim James' heartbreaking falsetto which recalls an alt-country Thom Yorke.

Be it rock and roll or 'twangcore', My Morning Jacket are not simply fetishising musical moods that probably pre-date the band members' birth, for in Jim James they have a songwriter with exceptional gifts. The likes of 'Golden', 'Just One Thing' and 'Steam Engine' could grace an classic American rock record, and deserve to be granted the same status. Shades of country, folk, rock - and on 'Mahgeeta', Brian Wilson's wide-eyed psychedelic pop - all bubble up in It Still Moves' sonic stew. The humid Kentucky air is almost palpable in the reverb-thick ambience on the record, untampered by post-production trickery in the way that marks their subsequent album 'Z' as a departure. The recording quality hampers the record at the times ('Dancefloor') the band try to embrace Stax soul where the honking brass sounds wrong in less polished recording conditions. On a couple of tracks like this it's as if we're listening to a concert as opposed to a studio album, and in a way we are.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars with time 12 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
at first i was dissapointed as i was wanting 'at dawn pt2', but theres been development here, which after some time shows to be a good thing.
My morning jacket have made an album to which at least half of could be danced to. It rock basically, its bar room country rock and roll at times, but the vocals, reverb and space firmly stamp 'MMJ' all over it. Jim james has created an all rounder, which this time seems more consistant, varied and even has a wonderful horn section.
The sad slow songs are less frequent but still there, and are what jim james sounds like he is on this planet for.

5.0 out of 5 stars If The Thrills were serious about the 70's 8 Sep 2003
By Mr. C. W. Smith VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is by far one of the most intetersting recordings I've heard this year, forget The Thrills Parsons lite country do dad this is the real McCoy.
The influences are pretty clear cut and the resultant joyous sound is what you may have got if The Stones had struck up with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and the JB horn section and this is after just one listen.
Great stuff

5.0 out of 5 stars MMJ produce a cracker! 30 Aug 2008
By Simon Loxham VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Only recently discovered MMJ after seeing them at Hop Farm Festival.I was amazed how cool they were with that alternative country vibe coupled with great vocals. They like to jam it up too.
I've now bought the last 4 studio albums and I agree with Kingrizla and MJ Hulme that this one is the best.It may not have the best production but it has the attitude and some of their classic material.The slower stuff will go down well if you like the Fleet Foxes.Believe me if you are into My Morning Jacket your collection is lost without this album.Take me to Okonokos!!

A consistently good album. If you've only recently cottoned onto Jim James and the band, then this is for you. You won't be able to resist Mahgeetah.
