    Evil Urges is easily MMJ's most accomplished and ambitious record, masterfully sifting through genres.
  4. This is an excellent release from an already accomplished band.
  5. Evil Urges furthers the reveal with confident and imaginative strides, now with 100% less burning kitten jokes.

    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 »

    A very strange, uneven album from the boys down South (Louisville, Kentucky). When it works, it's some of the best stuff they've written up to this point. The album doesn't work when they try too hard to incorporate too many different genres (some of them sounding like garbage). Full Review »
