    If anyone was curious like I was...

    The album cover is a close-up picture of a Magic Tuning Eye fitted on vintage radio receivers from the 1930s onwards. The purpose of tuning eyes in these radio sets were to help tune a station in at its strongest point on the dial. So when the perfect frequency was found, the Magic Tuning Eye would be lit up all the way (like the album cover's). The percentage of light shown signified the strength of the signal.

    Holdin On To Black Metal is one of their best tunes ever. That is going to kill live

    I mean, like half of their entire catalog are slower snoozier songs. Maybe even more. Its a key part of the band

    It's probably a better use of your time to go back and listen to one of their older albums that you haven't yet instead of the new one.
    9/21 - Caetano Veloso - Hollywood Bowl
    9/26 - William Basinski - Pasadena Arts Council
    9/28 - Bob Mould - Roxy (?)
    10/01 - King Crimson - Orpheum
    10/10 - Thurston Moore/Sebadoh - Echoplex (?)

    Just listen to Okonokos and try to see them live (without leaving after 3 songs to watch a dude in a mau5 head play untz).

    This is the best advice possible. I didn't really care for the band at all, then I listened to Okonokos one day and was blown away. Without a doubt my favorite live album I've ever heard.

    I've listened to their older stuff a ton of times. I enjoyed it. Wasn't blown away though.

    As far as their Sasquatch performance goes, I wasn't particularly enjoying what I was seeing. Some of my die hard MMJ friends have told me that their Sasquatch performance was one of the weakest they've seen from them. And by "some" I mean "two."

    That being said, if I knew the fiver was going to be so underwhelming I would have stayed regardless.

    That's interesting, Matt. They opened the Sasquatch show with One Big Holiday and Gideon, which are two of their better live songs. I thought they were very good that night, the only "problem" was that the crowd was almost non-existent.

    Have you considered that maybe you just don't really like this band that much?

    Yes. That's why I originally asked if I should bother with their newest release. Who knows, they could have tweaked a few things with this album that makes me become a fan.

    Meh, I'll just download it and find out.

    It bored me upon first listen. To me it's like their first two albums, The Tennessee Fire and At Dawn. But even MMJ songs I don't like on record seem to pop out and sound great live. I wouldn't push anyone to listen to their albums because their live show is where they've made their mark. If you don't like their live stuff, like Okonokos, then I just don't think you like them. Listening to the new album won't reveal anything, in my opinion.

    I listened to the album when it first leaked, and again last week and my impression at this point is that it's mostly forgettable. Hopefully seeing some of the songs live in 48 or so hours will change that, though.

    Yeah I would think just taking a small amount of time listening to the album wouldnt be much more work than asking around to see if it is worth checking out.

    So MMJ played all of the Circuital album,Wordless,Smoking From Shooting,Touch Me PT.2,One Big Holiday,and I Will Sing.I felt like my money was well spent since there was as much beer and food as I could drink/eat and I got in the front. Wonderful isn't bad to me anymore after seeing it preformed live.I thought the best song performance live from the new album was "The Day is Coming" and "Hold on to Black Metal".Also I thought Jim James would be the type of homeless person I would give a dollar to and without Jim James there is no My Morning Jacket.

    Fantastic show tonight. 7th row, right section, right in front of James. Loud as a motherfucker, perfect for the band. The sound up where I was could have used some improvement though, I could hear almost nothing of the bass and of Carl's guitar. It was pretty much just Jim's guitar and the kick drum. It was muddy at times too.

    Amazing setlist for the most part, tonight they played 3 back-to-back song segments that blew my fucking mind: Off the Record>Touch Me 2, Lay Low>I'm Amazed, and Anytime>One Big Holiday. They played Lay Low and didn't play Highly Suspicious = fuck yeah.

    But...and it's a big but...NO DONDANTE. How do you play fucking Smokin From Shootin in the encore and no Dondante?!? Blasphemy, I tell you. Dondante live is one of the more transcendental experiences I've had at any show ever.

    But aside from that, an amazing night. As meh as I am about the new album, almost all of the songs were completely excellent. I really hate Holdin' On to Black Metal though, even moreso in the live setting. Oh well.

    I think "Outta of my System" is my least preferred song from the new album to hear/see live.I found this out the other day that "Wonderful" and "Outta of my System" were written for a upcoming Muppets movie for Dr Teeth to preform originally.
