This was a present given to me by someone very special, i'm so glad they saw fit to buy me this wonderful Cd, it is very special.
When you see the Subpop label you straight away think lots of different things, will it be loud in your face, or will it truely be alternative to the extent of you wishing it could fly out of your Cd player faster than you put it in.
From the first to the last track i was taken on a wonderful journey, i doubt i was ready for what i heard from Guitarist/vocalist Ben Bridwell and guitarist Mat Brooke. As with most groups around they have risen like the phoenix when they formed Band of Horses in 2004, after the break up (or was it a well timed exit for something not quit happening?)of Carissas Wierd. Carissas Wierd like lots of other groups around produced sad but beautiful pop music (think Dakota Suite and others), their songs told stories of heartbreak and loss.
The music on this wonderful Cd oooozes dreamy songs filled with tension and hope, is there a better world out there? This isnt just another pop record, this is the start of something very big. I doubt that you will see them on the TV trying to sell you this Cd, it's going to be one of those that you get to hear about from friends or hear someone playing and ask "who's that", well just remember one thing, you hear about here.
Stand out tracks for me just have to be 1 - 10 .... isnt that just what a Cd is surpose to give you? There are of course stand out tracks like "track 4 - The Funeral", "track 6 - The Great Salt Lake" and the very last track "St. Augustine"
Everything All the Time is an album that you really can't miss out on, so do yourself a favour AND BUY IT.
