The album is the band’s best, most mature work yet. The breadth of influences, lyrically and musically, is vast. From Haitian proverbs (Dancing in the Jaws of a Lion) to the Book of Revelation (Soul Ma’am) to abstract art (Hello, Dali) to American spirituals (Stay in the Garden), from Mayfield and Waits to Paul Simon, Al Green, Isaac Hayes and more – Morningbell covers more ground in one album than many bands do in a career.
