Performer Notes
  • On the double-disc concert album Okonokos, My Morning Jacket harnesses its considerable live energy into an impressive set. Drawing primarily from It Still Moves and Z, the 2006 release features a few of the Louisville, Kentucky-based act's quieter tunes ("I Will Sing You Songs," "Golden"), but focuses primarily on gloriously rocked-out performances, including the surging shoegazer "Gideon" and the searing "One Big Holiday," which conjures up thoughts of the Allman Brothers Band and Mogwai in an on-stage choogle session. While many live records call attention to weaknesses in an ensemble's sound, Okonokos plays to MMJ's strengths (particularly frontman Jim James' and guitarist Carl Bromel's bold, upfront six-string work), proving that the group is an arena rock band in the best possible sense. ~ Rovi Staff
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.72) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "OKONOKOS swaggers along with lean guitars and big keyboards, cherry-picking tunes from MMJ's early records."

Spin (p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "An aesthetic- and career- defining set, it's the album they were destined to make."

Spin (p.61) - Ranked #08 in Spin's "The 40 Best Albums of 2006" -- "[A] hairy, old-fashioned rock outfit that does everything right."

Entertainment Weekly (p.81) - "This is an impressive representation of the MMJ live experience..." -- Grade: A-

Q (p.147) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "OKONOKOS is a heroic performance...Jim James's unlikely celestial holler is revealed as no studio trick..."

No Depression (p.101) - "They get almost funky during 'What A Wonderful Man', and the way they fold in a southern-rock guitar riff, voiced in thirds, illustrates how cunningly they manage to update the whole post-Allman Brothers tradition without making a big deal of it."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.118) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "OKONOKOS lacks nothing in great songs or celestial playing..."
