3.0 goodtokilltheking | January 9th 11

Quirky, catchy, and perhaps a little ethically incorrect. This album is enjoyable, but has it's share of flaws droppinng it down to a 3/5

0.0 MrDoobie | December 4th 09

This album has me stuck. It's an album that I want to give a "4 - excellent" rating, but at the same time there's a cloying element to the album that keeps me from doing so. The thing about Evil Urges, is that MMJ have come up with this really bizarro formula that sometimes works really well, and sometimes just doesn't. The Prince falsetto is used way too much, though, it seems like every time a track doesn't seem weird enough, they throw in some falsetto, which often makes them seem like they're trying too hard. Not only that, but many of the ballads seem just plain soggy and unexciting, particularly in the latter half of the record. For all it's faults, when Evil Urges works, it works beautifully.
And I have to say that I do like "Highly Suspicious". I think it's one of the highest points of the album and one of the only points where the Prince-imitation works.

3.0 goodSean Rizzo | July 1st 08

This album presents a refreshing sound in the mix of alternative, indie and good old fashioned rock n' roll. Unfortunately, the songs seem like hints at bigger potential as they never escalate above the level of "good". Almost every song scores in this arena, making for a good album and nothing more.
