CRITIC REVIEWS

Beats Per Minute

Much closer to Z than Evil Urges, My Morning Jacket proves that a leap back can sometimes be a step in the right direction.

Consequence of Sound

It’s an album containing 10 diverse songs—all performed with near immaculate precision—that reward with repeat visits.

Circuital is a return to form, but it brings into play all the disparate evolutionary elements that have made My Morning Jacket a staple of the summer festival circuit.

AllMusic

My Morning Jacket are clearly having fun, and they’re learning how to be “out there” without being outlandish.

Pitchfork

While Circuital is closer, certainly, to 2005's Z than Evil Urges, it doesn’t feel like a step backwards, or even like a lateral hop.

Purchasing Circuital from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
