4.0 out of 5 stars Electronic country/folk, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonesome Dreams [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Can't say that I can see much more than a passing resemblance to most of the bands that they are compared to so far, which I mostly would not buy - to me the sound is similar to Night Beds (another newbie)with some Geoff Buckley. Anyway - great sound and if you are interested or curious just spend a while on YouTube and ignore the comparisons suggested in the reviews (including this one).
If you are looking at buying vinyl - the 180g version is superb quality.

Like Fleet Foxes? Jonathan Wilson? Jim James and My Morning Jacket? Then you'll probably love this too. Excellent music to relax to, and some fantastic artwork too!

Every now and again there is a moment when the earth moves and you discover something wonderful. Finding the Lord Huron album was one of those moments. The album is wonderful and I know will go down on my all time favourite lists. I just love watching the band play live on YouTube. Just great

5.0 out of 5 stars Lonesome Dreams, 4 Feb 2013

This review is from: Lonesome Dreams (Audio CD)
If you like your Americana with a slice of melancholy then this is a must buy. Stunning full album debut from Lord Huron full of layered guitars and lyrical mysticism inspired by the landscapes of western USA.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epitemologically Speaking, Speaking, 13 Oct 2012

This review is from: Lonesome Dreams (Audio CD)
It's unclear which is meant to be providing the majestic quality to Ben Schneider's new album: a titled nomenclature, or the echoed harmonies from Fleet Foxes. Both have considerable precedence, firstly as band names continue to be as far removed from front-person/founder or solo artist as possible, generating perhaps a mystique, and here royally so; and secondly the Fleet Foxes were themselves bedevilled by comparisons with CSN&Y harmonising when they first appeared on the scene, not that Ben Schneider is a newcomer. Those just mentioned vocal comparisons were apt but not in reality that direct, yet the acoustic phenomenon of the LH/FF echoing is in danger of being verisimilitude gone reverb mad - and I take my extended metaphor from the epistemological argument that if so many reflected sounds assail a listener they are unable to distinguish between them, the proper definition for this is reverberation. Not echo. Reverb man.

Not knowing Fleet Foxes material that completely you could have played me Lord Huron's 'Lonesome Dreams' as if it were the former's latest release and I would have readily accepted the devious ruse. Is that criticism or compliment? I think it has to be the latter because it is an enjoyable harmonious sound that at times soars but always gently pleases. Perhaps more significantly is if in continuing the tease-analogy you initially told me you were playing Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's latest I wouldn't have been so aurally gullible [apart from all the other pragmatic reasons]. The significance is that Fleet Foxes have fashioned their own distinctive sound and it is having the same influence in its time as did the former band, and Lord Huron are in this new musical lineage. That's progress reverberating on and on. And I like it well enough for it to continue, and continue.......
