After listening to their second album until i'd pretty much worn out the disk, i was really looking foward to experiencing their first album, especially since all the other reviews on here claim that its the best thing Band of Horses have ever done.
Alas, I'm really sorry but i found it a very disappointing album. Possibly because my expectations were so high. But everything that i liked about 'Cease to Begin' seems to be missing here. Few of the tracks stand out as interesting or distinctive. Ive listened to the album maybe 10 times in the last week and no track grabs me or remains memorable. Ben Bridwell's voice verges on annoying, especially on tracks like The Wedding, where the repetitions seem to go nowhere.
Overall, the album lacks the overwhelming intensity of sound that i love on Cease to Begin.
Guess i'm going to be the only one to rate 'Everything all the time' with 3 stars!
