Jesusfuck Jim
:huh:

your enthusiasm and love for the band is awesome, but if my devout catholic mom was still alive, she would surely die if she read one of your profanity-laden posts.

My god....

I've been listening to this a LOT and ..... wow


Jim....how could you not have recorded this with MMJ? oh my god....stuff like Too Good To Be true and THE BEST FUCKING SONG JIM JAMES HAS WROTE SINCE CIRCUITAL "NO SECRETS ".... it hits me like white lightning EVERY time....

It's almost as if this record is too good to be true. Naysayers have your day, but it'll be swallowed by the mounds of fuzz and the most haunting Jim James vocals we've ever heard. Let's be honest Jacket fans , this man's songwriting is what we cherish most about this band. And, when something like THIS mammoth comes out as only a solo record, it hurts a bit cause it's so good, it should have the band's fingerprints on it....

All in Your Head is  total loveletter to rock and roll defeating disassociation. My girlfriend will love this song. We're fucking HERE RIGHT NOW...


While saying that....this album, from whoever Jim played with Dave Givan on drums I knew that, is a monster. Jesusfuck Jim goes boogaloo on our ass at times. He lets loose and we are much better people for it. I haven't ever dug his excursions away from the Jacket, always loved the songs no matter what they're Jim's and they're powerful lightning in a bottle, but i wish they were ALL Jacket songs.

But coming soon, to a theater near you in 2019, they will be...

Just imagine....this band MMJ, ending a 3 hour show  at Red rocks with the epic twofer of Phone Went West into Too Good To Be true.....

Wow.....

Wait there is a recording of the Cincinnati 2017 show? Can someone link me?

The Cincy show is on Archive, but not in the mmj collection. It's located under the community audio section because the files have to be in flac in order to be included in the mmj collection. These files are only in mp3 since it was tracked out from the youtube download.  Similar thing for the long sought after 2010 Portland Maine show because only mp3 files were shared when it finally surfaced. There's programs where mp3 can be converted to flac. I might try it out to see if we can get those shows moved over into the mmj collection making them streamable in the relisten app etc.

I have to echo what others are saying with No Secrets being the best of the bunch.  In some of the songs the vocals are extremely hard to hear and I feel like I'm straining to make him out.  Throwback in particular sounds to me like they threw a big wet heavy blanket over the microphone and then had him sing from the other side of of the room.  That one was a huge disappointment for me cuz I've been waiting years for a studio version of that song. 

Can anyone tell me how this sounds for them on vinyl?  I get the feeling with this album that it should be played from some kind of physical analog source.  This whole batch of songs and the ideas around it make digital mp3's seem like the least ideal way to listen.  The production definitely gets in the way for me on some of the songs but I keep listening to see if things click for me because I love more guitar oriented rocking out Jim and he seems really invigorated here. 

the record sounds great!

I love the central message--Love is what the world needs more of, BUT until such time as those of us who do not believe Mecca is the center of the universe or that living in a communist run nation prison (N Korea) are free from homicidal freaks who wish to wipe us out because of how we choose to run our lives (freely) then some amount of ferocious justice should be expected from our leaders and our military--we already know appeasement gets you nowhere...

it's so true, religion kills so many. I'm sick of religion's existence and PC liberals trying to make it work somehow. I'm a Bernie supporter, just saying I'm pretty liberal, but......this allowance of Islamic extremism is a bit insane, it only provides body bags for everyone on earth, including fellow peace-loving Muslims, too.

Everyone just needs to find that balance, that place.....and stop believing in killing and destruction. We have to call the evil shit out, whichever side it's on, or whoever's letting it happen.

PEACE MUST FLOW FROM EVERY TAP, LIKE A WATERFALL OF CLEAN, DRINKABLE WATER

find me a liberal who has an allownace for terrorism? The problem with your statement is your define islam as a terror religion when the vast majority of muslims around the world are peace loving and not violent. Youve got Buddist Monks raping Muslims refugees in Myanmar with all religions fighting in Africa every year and in America youve still got the KKK and christian extremists wanting to take over... There is no allowance for terrorism or islamic terrorism.

Do yourself a solid... and listen to that whole album!!  :beer:
This and also the first one. There called:
Chapter 1 The Sandworm Cometh: Early Recordings, B Sides, Covers, y mas
Chapter 2 Learning: Early Recordings, B Sides, Covers, y mas  :beer:
100
This is my video of the people who showed up in support of Immigrant Rights, Keeping Families Together, and Abolishing ICE at Camp Compassion camped outside the ICE Headquarters in Downtown Louisville. I used Jim's songs, "Here In Spirit" & "No Secret". There was a large number of Religious Leaders who came as a group and put themselves on the front lines to help keep the peace. My video starts off with them coming in singing in a line from around the corner on Broadway. It moves on to when the Religious leaders and the Camp Compassion organizers led the protesters to the front lines up to the barrier that the Louisville Metro Police Department had set up. They put two large orange dump trucks at the ends of the roads on either end and metal railing in place to keep the small group of counter protesters apart. The counter protesters known as The 3 Percenters had threatened to show up with lots of guns, thus prompting the large police presence. However, and in fairness to them, they changed their mind the night before the Rally and notified the Police and Media that they were encouraging their members to not bring their guns. They also kicked out a man and woman who were KKK members. They had identifying patches and were flying a confederate flag. They were trying to join them to raise hell at the Rally (there's some good local news video of the Cops taking them out). I guess the original organizers for the counter rally were trying to not be overtly racist, and I respect that. In the end, there were a few guns legally carried by a small number of people on both sides. Also, as you will see in the video, there were way less than 100 of them (probably more like 50 at the most). The people on our side numbered in the hundreds and Media reports the number to be just less than 1,000. The Louisville Police did a real good job keeping the peace. There were zero arrests. There was lots of city and community support from like minded people including the group I belong to and Jim belongs to, The Kentuckians For The Commonwealth (KFTC). There were people from Black Lives Matter, Veterans For Peace, what looked to be Anti-Fascists (mostly wearing all black), and many more I didn't know the names of, plus, just people who shared similar concerns and wanted to show up today to give voice for Human Rights and concern with what's going on in our country. I was very glad it turned out peacefully. Hope you all don't mind me using Jim's songs to be the soundtrack. I'll post the original videos with crowd sound later in a reply if anyone wants to check them out.
