My Morning Jacket "Z"

I know that this album was done at Allaire on their old Neve. As with all MMJ albums, reverb is a big part of the sound. How much of the reverb on this album is natural (ie. room and ambient mics) as opposed to artifical (plate, spring, digital, etc)? If it's largely ambient mics were there a bunch or only a few of them strewn about the place? Or, is some of the "largeness" from bleed? I don't know if the majority of this album was tracked live (band in a room) or overdubbed so that's why I'm asking about the bleed factor. It doesn't sound super "bleedy" to me but that could be due to mic placement and choice as much as anything. Thanks for info you can give me.
