Review by John Noyd
April 2013

Based on a 1929 graphic novel detailing an artist’s journey from kindly desires to fame and misfortune; “Regions,” seethes in celestial messages and spiritual suggestions. Cosmic licks from gurgling synths stir modest rock-gospel auras dipped in funky Southern soul as the disc’s mellow electro-secular effects gently build, spill, and blend together in a seamless dreaminess focused on elusive pursuits in a world of yearning impermanence. Playing most of the album’s diverse instruments, James’ transcendent tenderness builds from simple wishes to luminous ruminations to conjure world-weary theater whose choral outpouring begat warms baths of burning concerns and slithery hypnotic epiphanies ringed in restless acceptance. Quietly crafting refreshing confessions dressed in radiant cadence and orchestrated conveyances, the My Morning Jacket front-man visits Milwaukee’s Pabst Theater April 19th.
