About this item
Their fourth album proper and second for a major label, this should be the one that does it for these Louisville longhairs. It's got all their special ingredients; country, lonesome rock with a little Neil, a lot of echo and even more soul - but, with the help of John Leckie (and this time not recorded in a barn in Kentucky!) they've made a modern, otherworldly, dream-rock record that puts them in a similar arena to Mercury Rev. They tap into the very heart of the classic American music we all know and love. This one's slightly more rhythmical and with synths bubbling up, but they still ache and burn. Jim James still pines away, his voice as beautiful as ever. This is a more compact MMJ, but no worse for it. Infact, this may prove to be their most powerful album yet. Rich, as ever.
