5.0 out of 5 stars MMJ get even better, 4 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Z (Audio CD)
Reverb-loving Kentucky My Morning Jacket were doing fine in their country-rock niche, but they’ve gone and progressed anyway. ‘Z’ is their finest album yet, replacing the annoying five-minute guitar solos with some adventurous new developments: some Flaming Lips-style keyboards on ‘Wordless Chorus’, some Clash-style reggae guitars on ‘Off The Record’. Jim James’ voice is as spectacular as ever, and even that’s developed (witness the stupidly high a cappella outro to ‘What A Wonderful Man’). While it’s a little too short (10 tracks in 40 minutes), each track sees the band surprising further both musically and lyrically. ‘…Wonderful Man’, for instance, may be an upbeat, Motown-style stomper, but its lyrics mourn a recently-dead friend.
With ‘Z’, My Morning Jacket have finally delivered the album of uplifting, eclectic alt-rock classics they always meant to. Guitarist and keyboardist Johnny Quaid and Danny Cash, who both left the band in 2004, must be kicking themselves.
