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

Product Description

Following the release of their fourth critically acclaimed full-length album, Z, My Morning Jacket readies to deliver what is surely to become their quintessential body of work - two discs and a concert film. They contain their most dynamic, otherworldly compositions to date, presented in their finest form. Live. Okonokos is a creative concept conceived by Jim James, and it is as much a question as it is an answer. It is an enigma wrapped around a riddle. Okonokos is whatever you want it to be.

Amazon.com

Immaculately prolific and blatantly ambitious, My Morning Jacket celebrate eight years as a recording band with what many refer to as a death knell: the double live album. Yet it takes but a single listen to declare that the brass neck and bravado pays off for this Kentucky band of longhairs, which released the 21-song epic as a companion piece to their concert DVD. Songwriter and singer Jim James's howling falsetto ricochets through MMJ's backlog of songs, which have been reenergized for the stage by the band's airtight live-show mettle. Dusting off remnants of the first two records like "I Think I'm Going to Hell" and the stunning "The Way That He Sings," then lining them up with the more contemporary "Gideon" and "What a Wonderful Man," MMJ never take their foot off the gas. In fact, rather than getting bogged down in concert-album fashion, Okonokos plays spanking new, almost re-studio recorded. And that means it works both ways: as the next volume in a series for those familiar with My Morning Jacket, or as a compendium primer for a band that never lets up and is always willing to circumvent the rules. --Scott Holter

5.0 out of 5 stars A G.A.B. whose time has come... December 16, 2006
By Zenguy
Format:Audio CD
With this release, My Morning Jacket (or MMJ for you abbreviators out there) has confirmed what I had already suspected: they are a Great American Band on a par with any of the Rock Heroes or Important Bands from the days of old. Yes Page and Plant, I mean you! For the uninitiated, this band combines the rootsy Americana of Neil Young (the most obvious influence), the Allman Brothers (the second most obvious influence) and the Band with the hard-yet-edgy progessive rock of Rush and later Zeppelin, throwing in a heavy dose of indie atmospherics which can also be heard from such bands as the Flaming Lips and Wilco. Jim James's homespun lyrics mesh beautifully with the atmospheric yet rocking nature of the music, painting abstract pictures rather than telling actual stories. It is a testament to the band's unique sound that both indie and jam-rock scenesters lay claim to them, reviews gracing the websites of [...] alike. This is one of the few bands out there today which really brings together everything good about rock n roll, and reaffirms the music's vitality and importance in the new century.

Now, many people do not like live releases. I have never understood that bias, as I love hearing a band stretch out and interpret its studio work in unique ways. I understand though that many bands do not have the ability to actually pull it off. The knock I have heard on live albums is that they are either (a) too jam-centric and thus boring (perhaps even detracting from the enjoyment of the studio work), or (b) too close to the album's sound, so the buyer is basically purchasing the album material with one or two covers and some cheering in the backgound. Okonokos nicely avoids both pitfalls simultaneously.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Expected-Okonokos Blew Me Away September 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
There are rare times in life when I have sat at the edge of my seat and waited for a record release as impatiently as I had for Okonokos. I love the Jacket. Everything they do is brilliant. So to get a live double disk that showcases everything they do is just the icing on this double chocolate cake.

Studio songs that have been ingrained in my head truly have a new life in the live format. Lowdown for instance, begins with a jam--unexpected, you just don't know what's coming up next, and then bam, "bye, bye, bye".

At Dawn was made to be sung in the Fillmore. This is the VERB song of all VERB songs.

Dondante the newest classic fades into the sweetest sax solo I've ever heard. What are these guys doing to me?

Run Thru is CockRock at it's finest.

But the highlight is Steam Engine. This is the quintessential MMJ song. When played live, it showcases everything behind this engine of a band.

Please tell you friends to go out and buy this album. It's gold.

My Morning Jacket has steadily been climbing the commercial and critical recongition in the last 6 years, with 2005's "Z" album ranking easily as one of the best albums of last year. MMJ has built its reputation as a tireless live act, and finally MMJ releases a live album, and what a joy it is.

"Okonokos" (2CDs, 21 tracks, 123 min.) brings the full force of what it's like to experience My Morning Jacket in concert. As can be expected, the live set is heavy on "Z" songs: 8 of its 10 tracks are on here, mostly on CD1, with such gems as "Off the Record", which takes the studio track to new highs in a live setting, and "It Beats 4 U", with its underlying heavy drums. CD2 will bring higher delights to long-time MMJ fans, with epic (10+ min.) pieces like "Dondante" and "Run Through", but also bringing older tracks like "At Dawn" and "Xmas Curtain". The set closes with "Dancefloors" and an exuberant "Magheetah", several tracks on here from the equally excellent 2003 album "It Still Moves".

If you haven't seen My Morning Jacket yet, do yourself a favor and go do so, you won't be disappointed. (MMJ is about to start a Fall tour in support of "Okonokos".) I have seen them a number of times live, but none was better than the now-legendary set they brought at this year's Bonnaroo Festival, starting at midnight and going full blast for 3 straight hours. I must admit that I left after about 2 1/2 hours, I was just spent! That said, "Okonokos" is by far the best live album released this year. Essential, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Live Album September 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a great live album for a great band that i love. Any My Morning Jacket fan will love this beautiful double live album. To be honest i was a little skeptical of a MMJ live album, mostly becuase their sound (reverb) is so hard to catch on a live recording. But somewhere in the world a genius pulled it off. Every song on this live album i love from the recorded versions, and live in person, and now on live recording. My only complaint is that i wish they would have had more songs from Tennessee Fire, but none the less this is a must buy for any fan who hasnt already pre-ordered it or expecting in the mail.

Best Live Band
Maazi, trust me, their shows are as good as it gets. I saw them twice, once last year, and once as an opening act for Pearl Jam this year.
