Lightning Review: My Morning Jacket – “The Waterfall”


MMJ WaterfallI just put this on my turntable after listening to a particularly electronic album.  I can only stay up so late so I did record two of the double album and I can tell you that it’s incredible.  It sounds like it could have been recorded in 1977.  There’s something very AM about it.  It would have sounded equally good blasting out of the sawdust-caked radio in my parents’ basement as it does here, now, through my headphones.

Somewhere I saw this album described as a “listener’s album.”  Indeed it is.  Listen up.  Maybe even start with record two.
