My Morning Jacket: Circuital

My Morning Jacket


(V2/Cooperative Music)

On their last album Evil Urges, Kentucky’s My Morning Jacket shredded their rootsy background with wild but magnificent lurches into funk and disco alongside the usual bearded classic-rock riffing.

Circuital calms things down – too much so on “Wonderful (The Way I Feel)”, which sounds like Eric Clapton at his most blandly self-satisfied – but it still keeps us on our toes, as when a monstrous fuzz-guitar solo elbows its way into gentle country-rock during the aptly titled “You Wanna Freak Out”.
