By J. Loudon on January 25, 2011
Format: Audio CD
Anyone who read my "Best Songs of 2010" article may remember McMorrow's name falling into the 12 spot with "We Don't Eat." Now, nearly a year after its release in the U.K., "Early in the Morning" has finally earned a release in the U.S.

Recorded on his own while living in a cottage on the coast, "Early in the Morning" quickly sets the mood with "If I Had a Boat." Like "We Don't Eat," "If I Had a Boat" starts off quietly, but gradually builds in both vocal strength and instrumentation as the track progresses. Already a pro with them, these crescendos may very well become a trademark of McMorrow further along in his career. Additionally, shades of Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Band of Horses, and Iron & Wine all fill in McMorrow's mixes with a unique beauty that is very much his own despite the influences.

As the album treks forward, McMorrow proves he isn't a one trick pony with tracks like "Sparrow & the Wolf" which adds hints of country and maintains an upbeat tempo throughout. Although his more emotionally captivating tracks are the clear focus, the occasional upbeat flare adds a pleasant contrast to the album.

"We Don't Eat" is an unbelievably beautiful track and is worth the price of the album by itself, but McMorrow's equally sung and whispered lyrics intertwined with a lush musical framework makes for an enjoyable album from beginning to end; creating a very promising debut for the young Irish artist.

I had the good fortune to "discover" this wonderful artist at a folk concert outside Dublin earlier this year. His haunting and powerful performance blew me and the audience away. But the riveting live performance was only the appetizer for the main course: McMorrow's magnificant album "Early In The Morning." Think early Neil Young, only better. McMorrow's tenor is haunting and the songs are power and beauty combined. The haunting and stirring "Walk in the Woods," for example, has to be heard to be believed.

This is a beautiful, powerful album by a great artist.

It's in my CD player in my car and though it hold 6 CD's I keep listening to this one again and again and again. There are some parts that are...oh, how do I say? A little hillbilly - Avett Brothers sounding, but the rest of it kicks butt. "We don't eat until your father's at the table..." I am hooked on that one. Just ordered the new CD.

James Vincent McMorrow is awesome. He can create a pretty great debut album that not only has commercial, pop sensibilities but that also weaves in folk elements of acoustic guitar and banjo with some beautiful, piercing vocals reminiscent of Bon Iver. Some notable tracks are "We Don't Eat" and "The Sparrow and the Wolf," that while fairly pop-ey are also upbeat and hopeful. And while comparisons will be drawn between him and Fleet Foxes, Mumford & Sons and again, Bon Iver, have any of them taken 80s Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" and even Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" and made them into remarkable pieces that are deconstructed enough to make them almost sad and haunting? And while neither of these covers can be found on the album, I think they hint at what is to come for this very talented Irishman. I am looking forward to what is to come.

I bought this as a gift for someone after originally downloading the album as an MP3 ( I heard one of the songs featured on Covert Affairs) and falling in love with the lyrics, music, and JVM's voice. Apparently JVM recorded this (and wrote a number of the songs) while holed up in a small house on the wild coast of Western Ireland. I'm now convinced that everyone thinking of making an album like this should go do the same. I love almost all of the songs, but especially "If I Had a Boat" (which was my ringtone for almost two years) and "We Don't Eat." Do yourself a favor and go find some of his live versions of those songs, as well as his live cover of Steve Winwood's "Higher Love." If I could pick one word to describe this CD, it would be "haunting." And if you're Irish, of Irish descent, or have spent any amount of time in Ireland, you'll hear those generations of Irish musical influences and lyrical brilliance in these songs. Buy it.

James Vincent McMarrow has a heart-breaking voice that wonderful to listen to. A folksy singer/songwriter, with a bit of a Bon Iver sound.

For the total indie music snob, I suppose it could be said that some of the songs are fairly predictable musically, but for the most part it's a pretty solid album. I'd highly recommend "If I had a Boat" and "We Don't Eat."

I must say that I am not a musical snob. I listen to anything . This album came recommended to me and was my first "indie" style CD...all I can say was WOW!!!!! Incredible instumental, haunting melodies, heart rendering lyrics...this is an amazing piece of work. Did you ever see a film that when you left you knew it would resonate with you forever? This is the CD that will do the same. Every time I listen it's brand new, it resonates within my soul, it touches me in places I didn't know existed...how's that for a recommendation. If you need more..my 17 year old keeps "borrowing" this from me, he being a big Bon Iver and John Meyer fan.
