  1. The best next step would be to return to form as soon as possible and forget these Evil Urges. [Summer 2008]

    Forget Evil Urges entirely; call this one Zzz.

    Evil Urges is a major misfire and a hugely disappointing follow-up to the universally adored 'Z'. MMJ have taken some artistic risks withEvil Urges is a major misfire and a hugely disappointing follow-up to the universally adored 'Z'. MMJ have taken some artistic risks with this album and unfortunately none of the experimentation works. "Highly Suspicious" sounds completely out of character and is poor homage to Prince. Overall the album is a patchy collection of their weakest songs shifting uneasily between different influences. Such a shame though, as a "Z' was clearly one of the finest albums of the 00's Full Review »

    Probably the band's best album to date. Every song is unique and has an awesome mellow vibe to it. Songs like "Touch me I'm going to scream"Probably the band's best album to date. Every song is unique and has an awesome mellow vibe to it. Songs like "Touch me I'm going to scream" parts 1 and 2 just show how excellent this album is. Others like "Highly Suspicious" show My Morning Jacket at its most creative. All around great album. Full Review »
