Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AT DAWN (Audio CD)
I first heard of My Morning Jacket in a music magazine and thought I'd give them a go and they are definitely an original band, which is a good and rare thing these days. This is an album to put on late at night with a beer or glass of wine and let your cares slip away. The opener `At Dawn' has wonderful echoey, reverb heavy vocals that help life you up and drift away for the rest of the album. This band have been compared to Neil Young and this is only true when comparing the vocal style and Neil Young at his softest. There are great harmonies throughout and the backing vocals on `The Way That He Sings' gives it more impact, this is a particular favourite track of mine on the album. This is quite a long album by today's standards and is one to put on and unwind to and it also works well as background music when having dinner with friends. It has some good song writing, intentionally fragile vocals and good band harmonies and if you are looking for a band with their own sound and to kick back and relax to, then you may have found that right here.
