    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.

  1. Where the separate parts of the first half didn't gel – the chopping and changing of different styles too much to take in, perhaps, in too short a period--the second part is much easier to handle, and whilst the strong finish isn't enough to stop it falling short of "Z," Evil Urges does find its own place given time.
  2. The cumulative result is an exhilarating, bone-deep experience--a true album, built for sustained listening.
  3. Evil Urges explodes the band's sound with the same kind of creative leap that Wilco took on "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" and Radiohead took on "Kid A."
