Amoeba Review

05/04/2015

My Morning Jacket have made the return-to-form fans were hoping for with The Waterfall. After a couple of records that were interesting but lacked the power of albums like Z and It Still Moves, The Waterfall works because it puts the songs first. “Believe (Nobody Knows)” find MMJ in anthemic mode, building big choruses amid fuzzed-out guitar, fluttering piano and Jim James’ rousing delivery. “Like a River” utilizes eerie harmonies and majestic strings for one of the album’s most gorgeous songs. James engages in some Gordon Lightfoot-style AM gold on the acoustic “Get the Point.” And single “Big Decisions” is a huge, heartfelt jam with beautiful harmonies and James’ inspired lyrics about an unfulfilling relationship (“What do you want me to do?/Make all the big decisions for you?” he asks). The soulfulness and experimentation of the past few records is still here, notably on the ‘80s radio R&B of “Compound Fracture” and spacious, soulful “Only Memory Remains,” which closes the album on a classy note. But The Waterfall feels more like a classic MMJ record, wrapping these disparate sounds are wrapped together on an album that is as memorable as it is ambitious.
