Lightning bolt is just what pearl jam did and it was awful. Check yourself liebz!!

Ouch. I have to give it a listen.

Okay. Gave it a listen. It’s I think really great but breaks down really suddenly at the end - like they needed 30 more seconds climbing the epicness ladder to finish it off. Otherwise I quite enjoyed that.

Also, Lightning Bolt’s fatal flaw is the fade out just when it was getting good. This doesn’t suffer from that.

I am going miss them this time sadly, but I am planning to catch the live stream.

UPS tells me I should expect the live album today. I have only checked the front door a dozen times so far. This package has taken the long way on the freeway.

Lucky to be alive started off super charming and catchy. Totally would love it live. However, its charm wore off super quickly and the outro seemed like....i dont know...like a classic MMJ outro attempting to be super epic but not really getting there. Kind of like theyre falling back on old tricks.


Think Lucky to Be Alive is on the new record? I wondered if it's something they quickly wrote recently. We'll be seeing them and you at the Mission Ballroom in Denver!

For all its unbridled joy, My Morning Jacket again reveals the band's hunger for exploring the most nuanced and layered existential questions in song form. To that end, the album opens on "Regularly Scheduled Programming" and its poetic commentary on the impulse to numb out in order to escape a painful reality. "This song really hits home for me after what we've gone through with the pandemic," says James. "But even before then, it felt like so many of us were trading real life for social media, trading our own stories for the storylines on TV, trading our consciousness for drugs. We need to help each other wake up to real love before it's too late." One of several songs featuring the heavenly backing vocals of Briana Lee and Maiya Sykes, "Regularly Scheduled Programming" unfolds as a gloriously spacey number, beginning on a bit of psychedelic poetry ("Diamonds are growing in the garden/Raindrops are filling up the sea") and ultimately building to its resolute conclusion ("One shot at redemption: a mighty and sacred love").

An album that endlessly wanders into new psychic terrain, My Morning Jacket next delivers the mantra-like directive of "Love Love Love," a groove-driven and sweetly euphoric track. "That one's trying to steer the ship away from everything I'm talking about in 'Regularly Scheduled Programming' and speak toward positivity and pure love, finding truth within yourself and in the world around you," says James. From there, the band drifts into the delicate majesty on "In Color," a gorgeously wayward epic graced with a feverish riff that came to James in a dream. "'In Color' is just a simple statement of wishing everyone could agree that difference is what makes life beautiful, and that things look better with all of us here: every shade of the rainbow, every gender and race and sexual orientation," says James. "If you deny that, you're missing out on one of the greatest joys in life: the wonders of what people can give to each other."

One of the most frenetic offerings on My Morning Jacket, "Complex" brings a shred-heavy urgency to James's self-reflection. "In a lot of ways I feel like I'm a puzzle piece that won't fit," he says. "There's so much in life that I can't figure out, like how to make a relationship work or how to make a career work in a way I feel fully satisfied with. 'Complex' is sort of me asking, 'What am I missing here?'" In its convergence of intense introspection and outward-looking inquiry, My Morning Jacket achieves a particularly riveting power on the nine-minute-long "The Devil's in the Details." "That song came from thinking about being an adolescent and growing up at the mall," says James. "It's like this strange in-between place for when you can't quite be part of the world yet — and on top of that there's the horror of the mall and how much of what's sold there is made through slave labor. I wrote that song so that nothing gets resolved; I wanted to leave the listener with an unsettled feeling." At the very opposite end of the emotional spectrum, My Morning Jacket closes out with "I Never Could Get Enough," an otherworldly love song that precisely captures the rapture of infatuation. "I'm really proud of that one; I love that it's a little slow and moody and lets you get lost in it," says Blankenship. "It's like the song's not demanding you to be involved the whole time — you can just let it play and go off into your own world for a while."

For My Morning Jacket, the ability to supply those sublimely dazed moments is closely tied to the uncalculated nature of the album-making process. "Everyone in the room was willing to let the songs come together naturally, which I think allowed for a lot of exploration," says Hallahan. "This is what it sounds like when we get out of the way and let the music go where it wants." And within that surrender is a profound sense of purpose, a commitment to providing listeners with the kind of emotional outlet that feels more essential all the time. "I hope this album brings people a lot of joy and relief, especially since we've all been cooped up for so long," says James. "I know that feeling you get from driving around blasting music you love, or even lying in bed and crying to the music you love. The fact that we're able to be a part of people's lives in that way is so magical to us, and it feels really good that we're still around to keep doing that."

That was awesome. Currently streaming the Forest Hills show. Holy smokes that cover of Mercy Mercy Me is beautiful and fragile and everything I love about My Morning Jacket.

It’s got an Evil Urges vibe to it but I think it is quite good. Some of the phrasing is a little clunky but that is typical for Jim James. The rest to me is pretty cool. I could be lowering my standards because it is MMJ or just not being too picky…or maybe I like the song. I can’t tell yet. Needs lots of further listening which I am excited for.

Eh, doesnt matter what/why/how you approach it....all that matters is that you are enjoying it!

So far im not loving these two new singles but In Color (?) sounded amazing and im excited for that. Lots of times these songs take a different shape within the context of an album.

Very true and part of me keeps that in mind. I mean Love Love Love in the 2 spot is a little weird, gives off an anything goes context to the record.

Regularly Scheduled Programming at the lead off is perfect to me. It’s got that creepy Pink Floyd-like build underneath, particularly in the keys, and it just has that finish like we’re in for a ride - which to me is awesome to open an album. Love Love Love would likely totally knock you off course at #2 because it’s way different- almost optimistic compared to RSP which is like social doomsday.

I’m hearing The Waterfalls in both 3-4 songs I’ve heard.

I got through about a third of It Still Moves today (the 2016 remaster). I have heard the album dozens of times but every time I do, it still moves up my list of all time favorite albums. What a beautiful beast that thing is…

My live album has been to Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Jersey City and more since it shipped. It’s basically better travelled than I am.
