- Okay, I saw My Morning Jacket play live last night. For the first three
songs I thought I was going to be bored. Then some kind of firework
went off in my brain, and now I'm hooked. They are INTENSE. They are *
in* their music while they're playing it. And the singer's voice is
stunning. I see a lot of similarities to Centro-Matic, but also many
I only saw the singer's face once, though. There is a lot of hair in
that band, to say the least. :-)
So they have, what, three records? Can somebody compare and contrast
them for me? I know they're a lot different from the live show, but
that's all I know. (Apologies, because I know this has been discussed
elsewhere to some extent already.)

album is (for me) the essential one to have. Most of what they've
been playing lately in their live sets is from there. The main
difference is that the album doesn't rock as hard as they do live.
It's very pretty and steeped in reverb though. Their first album's
called "Tennessee Fire" and is pretty good as well.
I have the two most recent EPs. "Chocolate & Ice" just came out on
Badman and is kind of self-indulgent to my ears (a 24-min. song,
another track that's just a series of phone messages). I've only
given it a couple of listens so far though. The split EP they just
put out on Jade Tree w/ Songs:Ohia is worth getting, it builds on the
sound from "At Dawn". And I'm in love with the way Jade Tree does
business off of their website. No shipping charges, great prices
($10 for the aforementioned EP, $12 for the new Pedro The Lion).
Plus if you pre-order from them it ships 11 days before the street
Hope that helps a bit.
- My Favorite My Morning Jacket is the split EP with Songs:Ohia. There's not
much there, but it's damn good. The song "O is the one that is
real" is a high point of my 2002 listening experience so far. So if you
don't get the EP, at least download that song from audiogalaxy or

I love the demos disc that came with the first pressing of "At Dawn," but
I'm even more blown away by the latest EP, "Chocolate And Ice," which has
this great 20+-minute psychedelic freakout that encapsulates several
genres/eras of rock into one tidy package.

about the band other than that the lead singer has a gorgeous, soulful
voice. I'm curious to hear what they're like live.
