Best Songs: "Weary," "Trouble," "Gills And Tails," "Earn My Affections," & "Magic"
And the album is perfectly titled - something to wake up to and carry with you throughout your day.
The album starts off with "Trouble," a rather amateurish sound compared to her traditional cuts. "Unanswered Question" gets back on track to what most are used to hearing from Amel. "No One Else" is just as powerful as "Make Me Whole" from her first solo album. "Earn My Affection" is an okay track, but "Weary" is a great choice for what will probably amount to the only single release from the album. The title cut "Morning" reminds me of the ambient sounds of Radiohead's Kid A. "Gills And Tails" is the mellow cut that would get the most play in a lounge or jazz club. "Magic" talks about tapping into your creative side to solving everyday problems like bills, stress, and the like. "Just Once" is a fine song even though the background beat somehow reminds me of the bassline from Volume 10's "Pistol Grip Pump" somehow! The album wraps up with a rather peculiar sounding "Mountain of When."
Morning is not something you would run out and get if you are just looking for any kind of R&B album. Fans of Amel Larrieux will appreciate this album the most, as well as those who are into the more mellow, alternative R&B scene.
This album just proves that you don't have to fit a mold to be be good, you can get out of the mold and be extraordinary. Definitely the best CD release of 2006 so far and it will be on repeat in my CD player for months and months and months to come. If you are tired of the repetitive music on the radio..."Morning" will definitely make your day!

"Morning" is one of Larrieux's best albums, in my opinion. I'm surprised that some reviewers called her a dime-a-dozen singer, and said this album is overproduced. Read morePublished on April 3, 2010 by silhouette_of_enchantment
This album is one I could listen to at anytime. Her voice itself is an instrument that doesn't need backup or music but on this album the combination produces magic. Read morePublished on July 30, 2009 by M. Walker
