iTunes Review

Starting in the mid-‘00s, Band of Horses was the group that tastemakers were praising and the majority of us were quickly discovering. Blending roots and country sounds with an indie rock aesthetic, the band drew upon its previous eight-year incarnation as Carissa’s Wierd (sic) to craft songs that were both familiar and new. For its third studio album, Infinite Arms, the trio of Ben Bridwell, Creighton Barrett, and Ryan Monroe brought aboard Tyler Ramsey and Bill Reynolds (both veteran members of the live touring version of Band of Horses) to record a full group album in various locales over the course of 16 months.

I waited 3 years for this??

Ben Bridwell's voice is the only thing worthwhile on this album. I guess the real songwriters left the band after Everything All The Time and Cease To Begin. The lyrics on this album are pure lazy, uninspired, and at times ridiculous. The years of constant touring and festival shows seems to have burned out what was once a promising endeavor by Ben. I'm absolutely disappointed after waiting three years for these new BOH tunes. I saw BOH at The Earl in Atlanta in 2007 and was blown away by the performance, to this day I say it was among the top 3 shows I have ever seen. I'm afraid a show with these Infinite Arms songs would make me sleepy and bored. If you have followed BOH since the beginning you owe it to yourself to check out Grand Archives, the band formed by Mat Brooke who left BOH after Everything All The Time. I won't say that it blows this new version of BOH away but it's obvious who the creative one was during the creation of the first album. Is there something toxic about Ben Bridwell considering he is the only original member remaining from BOH? Only the guys who have played with him know what has gone down but it begs the question when the band moves from Seattle to South Carolina, all the original members leave him, and now they leave Sub Pop for Columbia. What's your purpose Mr. Bridwell?

I am really disappointed.....and I love BAND of HORSES....ugh!

I am a huge Band of Horses fan.....HUGE!!! I found the ganging up of people singing the melodies a little redundant and annoying. I love the lead singers voice. It is such a distinctive sound, and I want to hear it more in all the songs. Ugh I am really disappointed. There are a few trax on this album i will buy, but for the most part....get rid of the touring band in the studio....BORESVILLE!!!! Go back to the sonic magic of what made Band of Horses so amazing. Keep the touring band for the ROAD!

You won't hate it but...

After falling in love with their sound from the first 2 albums this one is a bit hard to process. Gone is the etherial Brian Wilson-channelled-through-a-haunting- hillbilly-rendition-of-Perry-Farrell sound created in Seattle. Replacing it is a Gin Blossom-esque production that exchanges cold and haunting with warm and flat highlighting the bands overall lack of musicianship. Maybe it was the label switch, maybe it was the producer, maybe it was the new guys, maybe it's the old guys wondering why the two previous albums didn't garner mainstream success effectively changing the band's direction, but regardless this album is disappointing and awkward. BOH was never going to be a band for the ages but they had a unique sound and nitch that was all but abandoned. There are some decent melodies here and diehard fans will still find something to hum too, but is that really what BOH was about? Also gone is the bizarre lyrical crypticism from the first to albums, replaced with a more straight forward approach to storytelling that again does not serve well. Anyway.. you probably won't hate it but that's the best that can be said.


Formed: 2004 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Emerging in 2004 with a blend of woodsy midtempo rock and reverb-laden vocals, Band of Horses gained an audience in their native Northwest before Everything All the Time made them indie rock darlings. Multi-instrumentalists Ben Bridwell and Mat Brooke founded the group after an eight-year run with Carissa's Wierd, and an early concert alongside future labelmates Iron & Wine caught the attention of Sub Pop Records. Sub Pop signed Band of Horses in 2005 and reissued their self-released EP later that...
