Good ol' Days of MMJ

If you have ventured this far into the catalogue of MMJ albums, then I commend you. This album is wildly different from the "heaver" Z and Evil Urges. The Tennessee Fire, along with MMJ’s live "Okonokos" are my favorite MMJ albums. The only way I can think of describing these songs is: They have heart. "I Will Be There When You Die" is an undeniably moving song, "War Begun", "The Dark", "The Bear", and "Its About Twilight Now" are personal favorites. If you are looking for an album similar to Z or Evil Urges this is not it, but If you are looking for well written, soul-bearing songs that will make you feel something, it is hard to beat the songs on The Tennessee Fire.

"Don't try to tell me there's another boy..."

AWESOME album! Me and my buds use to stay up late with my door wide open facing the beautiful San Diego skyline enjoying the cool summer air, drinking beer, smoking cigarettes (among other things) and just chillin'. Really brings back a lot of memories. Very special album indeed, from begining to end. "Heartbreakin Man" got it going and all night we'd jam and sing along. Jim James is my boy> Every song is so emotional in its raw power. A very near and dear album to me. I hope some of you out there feel the same. BUY IT!

So much heart...

I love everything MMJ have created, my first record I bought being "Live at Okonokos", which I still hold to be the best. Tennessee fire has so much heart and is so intimate and raw, every song has a very opened heartfelt feel to it. These guys weren't looking to polish and over produce these rugged gorgeous songs, they have shown how much pure emotion and imperfection can be the most glorious of things. I love it. Probably my favorite of their studio albums.
