My Morning Jacket is about as close as one gets to a true twenty-first century arena rock band that I actually like. Of course, that's because these Louisville, Kentucky, natives are so much more than mere Skynyrd or Van Halen knockoffs. Even though their live performances include the light shows, smoke machines, and flying hair reminiscent of a seventies Live-at-Budokan cliché, Jim James and company actually seem to have something to say. "Off the Record," for instance, is a clever play on words that refers both to the duplicitous nature of politics and to the choices artists must make when deciding what material to make public. Z is just a great throwback rock and roll album.

The music is very good, imo, but wasn't crazy about the vocals. If the vocals were connecting with me, this'd probably make my top 100 of the 2000s.

I need to get into this album a little more, but I just love how great this record is. It's another one that is so good that even the weaker songs are pretty remarkable. It starts strong, it ends strong, and it's just a damn awesome addition to My Morning Jacket's catalog.

This album is another very underrated album on this site along with the rest of their albums. I personally like Evil Urges better, but this is still a good record. Favorite Songs are Wordless Chorus & It Beats 4 U.

Ya know, once I heard this album, I thought I loved MMJ, but then I heard their many others, and realized this one's the gem. In terms of experimental/jam rock, there are some really amazing tracks on this one. Their other albums don't have as many tracks that jump out like this. Based off their latest effort, I don't think they'll ever match this album.
