You need it. That's for sure.
You'll recieve. But always. Want more.
Take it. For granted.
This lifetime. And what's up. Ahead.
(CHORUS)
But the day is coming. The day is. Near.
The day is coming. You know what. I mean.
The day is coming. The way is. Clear.
The day has come!
Bang bang! On the door.
You open. Not knowing what for.
If opportunity. Rears its head.
Will you answer? Or stay home. In bed?
Eh baby...
(CHORUS repeated 2 times)

I agree.  His intonation is all over the place - almost as bad as Wayne Coyne.
The Black Jacket?
Not their best song, but it is good to hear some different stuff from them on RP. Thanks!!
LOVE the early stuff, the newer stuff not as much.
I like the 6E5 Magic Eye Tube on the cover art - this song not so much however...
 
How on earth did I know that MMJ was going to be played next as part of this set?  (I don't think I have heard this set before.)

Rubbish.
..MMJ is one of my new RP-inspired (thx!) infatuations, so take my 8-rate with that salt grain..

..not their best, by far, but it has upside potential (redundancy intended)..
Yeah...not crazy about the band name...but hey...the song is good. It evokes a definite atmosphere of unsettledness and melody. The cover art reminds me of ELO or something. Not sure why...
sounds like stewy from family guy.....{#Roflol}
he really cannot sing very well...

No wonder I despise it.  The era of Tears for Fears was forgettable...when was that?
 
Right after your memory starting failing, apparently.  

I would refuse to play in a band with the ulta-stupid name

"MY MORNING JACKET"

...just unbelievable!

tasteful!
Just saw MMJ last night in SF and they rocked this song. Trippy coincidence?

Amen. James is singing in a normal voice at last, and the engineer isn't drowning it in reverb. And a fresh approach to songwriting. Adds up.

 
Sorry, I wish I was as enthusiastic about their newer stuff, but I really liked their older "reverbed" work.  This piece is starting to grow on me.

Saw them on the W. Coast tour this summer. Frickin great band. IMHO...one of the best rock and roll acts out there right now.
They are really maturing!
Kinda Beach Boys-y...
Best thing I've heard from these guys is the live album. Their studio work does not thrill me, and Jim James' voice just makes me think a muppet is singing.
that was so good I didn't notice it !
Meh
not bad, but not worth hearing again... 
Loved Z, really really liked Evil Urges, so far I think this is good but nothing is really jumping out at me as fantastic.  It's disappointing but not surprising.  Z is one of my desert island cds.

Sadly, I find the last couple of MMJ albums have not thrilled me as much as their earlier sound(s).  Hopefully their newer stuff will grow on me.
I bought this CD last week, thanks to RP's airplay. Once again, Jim James does not disappoint.
