New Music: My Morning Jacket

Wow. "Evil Urges" came out today and I'm not sure where to start talking about it. The first thing you need to know is that it's really uneven. Tracks range from riveting to horrifying. There's at least some good ideas in there, even if they go horribly horribly wrong. Standouts, for better or for worse: "Remnants" and "I'm Amazed" are fantastic; the title track and "Highly Suspicious" upset and disturb me on a very deep level, and not in a good way. Have they lost their minds? Probably. But in some places on the album, it's not a bad thing.
