"You could keep biting your nails, waiting for a Zeppelin reunion tour. Or
you can see My Morning Jacket, here and now, make their own "Physical Graffiti"
in your face". - David Fricke, Rolling Stone, SXSW 2008
"Former Frank Zappa engineer Joe Chiccarelli taps into the band's ambitiousness, producing a rich, warm, plush, resonant, and fatigueless sound. My Morning Jacket has seemingly found the rhythms of the ages." - Bob Gendron, The Acoustic Sound, August 2008
"In theory, the vinyl release will have one additional top octave that the CD won't have. The lower-level distortions in digital won't be there on vinyl, and the higher sampling rate means the high frequencies can be a little smoother than on CD. Its got good dynamics for a pop record and interesting guitar tones." - Bob Ludwig
