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 ...

Customer Reviews

I think it's quite possibly the best album recorded in the past 15 years.
Derek D Dobson
This album has some good songs and some great songs but the most impressive part is how well they all flow and fit together.
Tyler Durden
Just listen to it and give it time, it will grow on you, and it's a feel good ripper album, man.

I had never heard of this band, and when a friend of mine suggested I buy "It Still Moves". I did, and I was initially unimpressed. I didn't think the musicians were particularly talented,I wasn't sure about the reverb-drenched vocals, and it sounded like more Alt-Country stuff.
However, facing a long road trip, I thought it would give me another chance for a listen. It turns out this was a good decision on my part. When I concentrated on what the band was doing in regard to composition and arranging, I realized there were many subtle things happening. It was if every note and every beat served a specific purpose, yet it had a loose, relaxed, rather melancholy feel... The musicians have carefully crafted textures of sound which for me recall summer evenings spent fishing along a shady river, or time spent hiking in the mountains near where I grew up. The music is simultaneously simple and grandiose. The vocal reverb creates a big, full space within the music, and it doesn't bother me that I don't understand the words without a lyric sheet... the entire sound is evocative to me, much like early R.E.M. in the sense that the atmosphere being created might be the greater part of things. (I think MMJ's lyrics are pretty good, by the way.)
I couldn't get the CD out of my car stereo, and I listened to it three times in a row. I haven't had a CD I have wanted to listen to continually... for years.
In my opinion, the CD has a perfect title. The music tends to give me a sense of inner stillness... but it moves me as well!
Time to dash out and buy their other CDs!

"Sittin' here with me and mine, all wrapped up in a bottle of wine" - so 2003's "It Still Moves" begins, with Jim James's trademark reverberated vocals coming through the speakers like they're being shouted from deep inside a cave or something. The effect is distinct, and very successful, much like this album itself. Like the bear gracing the album cover, this is a mammoth effort: the album clocks in at 72 minutes, and most songs break the 6-minute mark. The result is a listening experience not for those who are easily bored, but rather those who can let the music unfold slowly (and make no mistake, those who do make it through the meandering parts will be richly rewarded in the end).

I actually find the length of the tracks to be one of the record's strongest assets. The balls out jams that end the majority of the songs here show a long lost affinity for the GROOVE. These guys know how to hit on a riff and milk it, and no avenue is left unexplored. There are breakdowns, build-ups, guitar excursions, Memphis horns, and even some synths (on the marvelous "Run Thru"). It's been said that "It Still Moves" plays like a live album, and I couldn't agree more. It is remarkable that the band was able to take the energy and freedom of a live show and put it onto record. For that reason alone, this would be one of the finest records of 2003, but fortunately there are songs to back up the fabulous arrangements. Every song is memorable, and there aren't any throwaway tracks. The ethereal yet soothing vocals dominate spare, rambling tracks such as "I Will Sing You Songs" and "One In The Same". Elsewhere, the guitar takes over and the band rocks up a storm rarely seen since the southern rock heyday of the 1970's ("Mahgeetah", "One Big Holiday").

MMJ is the best thing out there right now. Why? Becuase they take you on excursions of the mind. It Still Moves is a long album, and the first time I heard it I was a bit overwhealmed with the length. My first thought was, 'this is a bit much for one record.' But once I realized that this was a band that was in no rush to tell you what they doing it all clicked. It clicked on a sunny afternoon by the pool. Spend some time with this album and the sun. Watch the sunset as Steam Engine roars to the end. Absorb yourself in the the atmosphere created by Jim James.

MMJ is the best kept secret in the music world right now. Let's keep it that way. What ever you do give It Still Moves the time it deserves to appreciate it. I think it's quite possibly the best album recorded in the past 15 years. Call me crazy.

Although I tend to be wary of any band that Pitchformedia.com slums for, this one (for 8 bucks) is, for the most part, worth the effort to get to know better. Picking it up totally on a whim and having no real reference point for their sound, I was surprised to find what I suspected wasn't on the album: namely, actual rock music. I have no real fondness for Southern Rock, so hearing those duel Skynyrd guitars slashing around It Still Moves and hearing the lead singer's voice reach quite high levels made me apprehensive at first. But the quality and the complexity of the songs is undeniable, along with Jim James's voice. You would think that coating your voice in blurring reverb on every song would get annoying fast...but somehow it doesn't. Instead, it lends James's voice an eerie lonesomeness and potency that meshes quite well with the music, whether it's the opening, rollicking song "Mageetah" or slower ones like "I will Sing You Songs," which concludes with his wail against a background of simplistic pounding of instruments that is quite effective. No song is shorter than five minutes, which can get a little tiring at times. Somehow, though, each song has a epic quality to it that would be cheated if it had to be shortened. Strands of Southern Rock run throughout It Still Moves, but it doesn't hinder it. Instead, it only informs it, giving the otherwise hard indie rock on display throughout most of the album a looseness to it without being experimental, as most Indie Rock bands tend to succumb too. The length is the only real complaint. But carve an hour out of your day to listen to the continuing improvement of a very promising band. It'll be worth it.
