My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James takes a brake from his busy schedule to release his second solo album. So how odd is Jim James on 'Eternally Even'? Watch our review to find out.
New album reviews every Tuesday!
• Classic soul and funk chopped and screwed on underwater turntables
• My Morning Jacket tires of Jim James’s political rants so he decides to rock the vote with a another solo album
• The way he puts a modern psychedelic spin on classic soul and funk sounds fresh and fun
• Horns add a nice wrinkle on the last three tracks
• He gets more personal and direct with the lyrics, which feels right for a solo album, and the lyrics are great for the most part (politics, spirituality, love, aging)
• The murky, jammy nature of the album makes a lot of songs sound the same
• He has such an amazing voice, yet he only uses a fraction of his vocal talent here
• Loose song structures
