Solidifying their eclectic and eccentric style, My Morning Jacket’s fifth album, Evil Urges, goes from their classic rock roots to jam band sound to a new funked-out trip. The band, known for their prog rock meets Southern rock sound, definitely stretches some musical muscle on this album.

They successfully manage to create harmony between genres and styles that should sound at odds. The album opens with the title track, which is a prog rock number with lead singer Jim James in a squealing falsetto about how “evil urges are just part of the human way.” The groovy track “Highly Suspicious” sounds a great deal like Prince in the ’80s with a modern twist.

Such diversity could make the album seem jumbled, but MMJ pulls together a coherency that makes the album sound like pure goodness.
