Review  by James Christopher Monger
After landing a Best Alternative Music Album Grammy nomination for 2010's dizzying Infinite Arms, Seattle, Washington-via-South Carolina-based indie Americana outfit Band of Horses felt the pressure to make their fourth studio outing something truly special. Preferring to take a more grounded approach this time around, the group tapped legendary producer Glyn Johns (the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Clash, Led Zeppelin, Traffic), who helped rein in some of the group's more experimental tendencies by insisting on a more intimate live approach. The resulting Mirage Rock, which was preceded by the single "Knock, Knock," arrived in September 2012.

Review  by Andrew Leahey
Featuring a new lineup, a rather loose definition of Americana, and funding from a major label, Band of Horses’ third album is a game changer. What began as a partnership between Ben Bridwell and Mat Brooke has since blossomed into a five-piece band, with Bridwell serving as the only link between the group’s 2006 debut, Everything All the Time, and the present. It’s only natural, then, that Infinite Arms sounds wholly different from the albums that came before it, both of which mixed guitar-driven rock with dusty, jangled folk. There’s still plenty of folk to be found here, and Band of Horses bang their way through “Compliments” as a concession to their rock fans. Infinite Arms is a borderline pop album, though, dressed up in flannel and facial hair to disguise the fact that these melodies are, with few exceptions, the sweetest of the group’s career. There are harmonies galore, including thick, Sacred Harp-type triads that beef up Bridwell’s vocals while drawing parallels to Fleet Foxes and the Beach Boys. At times, it’s hard to separate Band of Horses from their influences; “Blue Beard,” although downright gorgeous, cops its verse from Smile-era Brian Wilson and its bridge from the Starland Vocal Band, and “Older” sounds like the country-rock single Gram Parsons never wrote. But the album’s willingness to sample from so many different genres -- roots, soft rock, alt.country, power pop, indie folk -- makes it sound like nothing else in 2010, and Band of Horses connect the dots by layering everything with canyon-worthy reverb and cinematic guitars. For those who let it sink in, Infinite Arms could be a contender for the year’s best summer album, not to mention the band’s most cohesive record to date.Benjamin Bridwell & Band of Horses; Author: Simon Joyner (Getty Images) File:Flickr - moses namkung - Band of Horses 4.jpg © Ben Bridwell playing with Band of Horses at the Outside Lands Festival 2009 / Date: 30 August 2009, 18:46
