    As concert recordings go, this is one of the best.
  2. This is an impressive representation of the MMJ live experience. [29 Sep 2006, p.81]
  3. With each passing year My Morning Jacket seem more like one of the most powerful live bands around. Okonokos does nothing but reinforce that impression.. or solidify it even.
  4. Any live show will inevitably have crests and valleys, but besides these specific performances, Okonokos disappoints on a more general level: It too seldom sounds like an actual live album.
  5. The only downside? You don't get to see the band's plentiful hair thrashing about. [30 Sep 2006, p.39]
  6. 60
    The band's wild woolliness seems strangely AWOL. [Nov 2006, p.118]

    I agree with Pitchfork on this one. I expected more of a "jam" sound on this live set, similar to what they did in the "Austin" performance - they rocked it far beyond any of their albums. This one sounds like a good album, but "live" -- well, a lot of the stuff one would expect live is absent. It only succeeds in thrilling towards the last 3 or 4 songs. Guess maybe it took them that long to warm up, but then the concert was over with. But overall, a great album -- it just could have been meatier (and I'm a vegetarian!). Expand
