Biography

Way back in 2010 I opened my mouth to say that Infinite Arms felt to me like it was the first Band of Horses record. I was trying to imply that I finally had the band I'd always dreamt of, that the album was a celebratory debut of this unit. Or was I joking? That's the thing: I've finally become comfortable enough in this band that sometimes I don't even know when I'm ... Read more in Amazon's Band of Horses Store

Format: Audio CD
Band of Horses are your typical Sub Pop style band in every positive sense of the phrase. They are a slightly folky, jangly, almost quirky band that offer up some great song writing and a short, snappy album for our delight. I love the two opening tracks and will skip back to the start to play them again before continuing with the rest of the album. This has an excellent booklet (something that is sadly getting lost with the prevalence of downloads) and this has some small postcards with various photos. The band have been compared to My Morning Jacket and they are certainly reminiscent of that band in places, but they also reminded me of the excellent Death Cab for Cutie in places as well and if you like either band then you may well enjoy this album too. If you enjoy other bands of the Sub Pop stable then give this CD a try and if you also enjoy good song writing and short, punchy albums then this is worthy of your consideration.

Simple, well crafted and arranged songs throughout this album, and an absolutely amazing vocalist like few others (especially these days!). The band appeal to people of all ages like no other band i know of. A fantastic cover to this album also, which looks even better on the LP format i've now got. The Manic Street Preachers have openly said there fans of these guys. Hopefully the rest of the world will wake up to them soon.

Great second cd from a great band, i have both their albums & have recommended them to a few friends who have praised them too.
Not a lot of people have heard of them, but i would watch out for them in the future. Brilliant!!!
You have to buy this for 'Is There A Ghost' track alone, absolutely wonderful track.

Format: Audio CD
One of the most wonderful things about music is that if you miss something first
time around it'll still be there somewhere, poised to pounce, just around a corner.

Everything you never heard waiting for an accidental witness
and so many corners to turn in a lifetime.

For The Wolf, Band Of Horses' second album 'Cease To Begin',
is a very fine example.
As it happens a very, very fine example indeed.

The ten songs in this collection are spun into sparkling reality by
Mr Bridwell and his able cohorts with skillfully subdued aplomb.

Mr Bridwell's plaintive and strangely affecting voice is the
solid raison d'etre for my enthusiasm.
It is a truly beguiling instrument.

The songs are all good.
Melodically strong, uncluttered, sympathetically and efficiently performed.

'Is There A Ghost' is a strong opening track.
It's wistful opening subject evolving into a powerful two chord thrashing coda.

'No One's Gonna Love You' is another cracking tune.
The quietly jangling guitar and unobtrusive organ frame the vocal perfectly.

'Detlef Schrempf' is simply stunning. Bridwell's haunting voice
again soaring out above the relative simplicity of the song's construction.
The chorus is heartrendingly beautiful.

The hokey humour of 'The General Specific' makes for a lightweight
and amusing barn dancing interlude before the transitional bars of 'Lamb On The Lam'
launch us into the magnificent emotional mayhem of 'Islands On The Coast'.

Country flavours emerge again in 'Marry Song'. The vocal harmonies are delightful.

'Windows Blues' is another classy melodic highlight and worthy closing track.

I bought this album after seeing them at greenman festival in Brecon Wales with the backdrop of the welsh mountains and what an awesome setting to first hear this band. The album is great and the cd and download feature through amazon cloud brilliant.
