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 ...

Editorial Reviews

A voice that's both honey & charcoal, deep Southern gothic canvases with gracious acoustic and electric guitars, painterly strokes of harpsichord, harmonica, lap steel, drums swimming in the deepest, darkest widest pools of reverb, dirigible harmonies that will have you weeping, incensed atmosphere so thick, it's absolutely biblical. Darla. 2001.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Day Rising April 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
A recent MOJO alerted me to My Morning Jacket. Though "At Dawn" is a couple of years old, it has just been released on this side of the Atlantic.
A dreamy, soaring collection of songs, "At Dawn" is achingly beautiful and the title is oh so appropriate; there is a slightly unreal edge to the songs, they seem to shimmer in the new day's light. Beautifully arranged and played the songs are a delight. Melodic, hypnotic and arresting the songs have a lived in, yet brand new, feel. The key, however, is Jim James.
His voice pushes the songs right to the edge, investing them with a thrilling and stirring emotional depth. He has one of those rare voices - part country, part rock, part soul - that is a mix of ability and emotion. Think vintage Rick Danko and Richard Manuel.
CDs can be fraught things: all too often a band with 40 great minutes releases 74 mediocre minutes, because, well, they can. It's rare to find a full length - or as good as full length - CD that sustains through a full hour and a quarter.
"At Dawn" zips by.
Hints of Mercury Rev, Lambchop and Flaming Lips weave in and out of the mix, alongside nods to Neil Young and Bob Dylan (and - in mood, if not in sound - "Music from Big Pink" and "The Band").
A very American collection, "At Dawn" is absorbing, engrossing and hugely, hugely entertaining.
Don't miss this early moring call.

Having seen My Morning Jacket live a couple of times, both as a full band and as the Jim James solo act, I was eager to hear this album. This, MMJ's second full length, is a truly great follow-up to The Tennessee Fire. It is a little more laid back, a little more country-influenced, but not so much as to depart from their signature mix of pop, rock, and alt-country. The best part of this new album is that a second cd is included with the original versions of the songs as laid down by Jim with just his guitar. It offers us the chance to hear how the band sounds as a whole and as Jim's solo project. The bottom line is: if you like melancholy music with just enough fun and happiness to keep you interested, if you like melody and amazing vocal work, if you like good, earthy music, this is for you. However, if you're not very much into country, I recommend you start with their first LP, The Tennessee Fire, and work your way into this one. Wonderful music all around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Is The Word September 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Figured this review section could use some non-Kentucky commentary, though it's certainly good to see that the band still has a strong regional following after all this time.
This album [drew] me in, as none other really has in a very long time. I've been very jaded lately about new music, not that any that I listen to is very poor: more like, none of it stands out very far in my mind, lately. This one is different, somehow....first of all, Jim's voice is just about as good as it gets for the kind of twang he puts into his performances. It's utterly fitting of the style of down-home music they play, and yet it's not a pure-country voice by a stretch. (Like the voice of someone who is country whether they like it or not, sort of like I am by heritage.) Anyway, the man has pipes and he makes very dynamic use of it throughout this long (73 minutes!) album. Secondly, the production on this album is superior....fans of the Tennessee Fire will notice a HUGE difference between the way the band sounds here and how they sounded in their official debut. Of course, you should not be too discouraged to get TF if you enjoy this album, for the simple fact of its brilliance will always surpass whatever they were financially lacking during the recording of the album. But, At Dawn is a much better introduction for the new listener in my opinion, and it also has a little more rock action in it.
I digress, as always. Simply put, if you are not completely urbanized beyond your own control, or too fascinated with American Idol to give real music a chance, you WILL find a reason to love this album....& this statement is coming from a HUGE Aphex Twin / Philip Glass fanatic of many many years, so I know what I'm talking about.

4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect transition to "It Still Moves" June 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My Morning Jacket has rapidly evolved over its 4 albums, and the evolution is fascinating to follow. Its 1999 debut album "Tennessee Fire" was a journey into Americana, almost entirely based on dreamy, accoustic songs.

The band's second album "At Dawn" (14 tracks, 74 min.), issued in 2001, eloaborates on the themes explored in "Tennessee Fire" in many songs such as the title track, "Lowdown" and others. But the band expands its sound greatly, introducing the electric guitar on the brooding "Honest Man", an all-out rocker on "Strangulation" and even a slight reggae sound on "Phone Went West", forshadowing the "Off the Record" song on last year's "Z" album. In retrospect, this album is the perfectly logical middle link between "Tennessee Fire" and its next album "It Still Moves", and a great album at that, albeit somewhat overlong at 74 min. Nevertheless, it's a must for any MMJ fan and it certainly won't disappoint the casual fan or any fan of great music.

My Morning Jacket continues to ascend the ranks in the music biz. It builds its reputation not just with great album after gret album, but with amazing live shows. When I saw the band most recently, at Bonnaroo earlier this month, it put on an epic, monstrous really, 3 hour set that started at midnight. It brought the house down with its tireless energy and great song selection (both originals and covers). MMJ will be heard of for many years to come, no question.
