  • Same here, rickysbutler. Always liked them, never been a huge fan. Had this album lying around for quite a while before finally giving it the first spin - and it blew me away. Really enjoying it, especially "How to live" and "Feud", Sorry to see so many fans being diappointed.
  • One of those few moments where I just don't understand the overwhelmingly strong opinion to an album that opposes my own almost completely. With no prior knowledge of this album or its reception, having not listened to Band of Horses in years (&, while liking them, I never considered myself much of a fan), I popped on my headphones for an early 6 a.m. hike into the mountains of SoCal not so many months ago and played this little guy. Absolutely magical; a new-found adoration for BOH as the sun rose and started reaching through those high trees, as the temperature warmed.... Basically I bobbed the hell out of my head and felt good, refreshed about everything for however many minutes. It was, oddly, a perfect series of moments in a mostly-perfect day. Put this on--loud--and take an early morning hike.
  • I am enjoying this album, it just hasn't caught me the same way EATT did... Heh
  • I think this along with Infinite Arms are their weaker albums compared to the wonderful EATT and CTB. Is it something to do with leaving Sub Pop? Could be...
  • This is such a good album. First full album I've heard of them and took a few listens to get into it. Slow Cruel Hands Of Time, Electric Music, and Heartbreak On The 101 are the best. Sunset cruising.
  • I like to pretend this album doesn't exist, that way Band of Horses stay as one of my favourite bands.
  • My initial reaction to Mirage Rock was much like everyone else's below. After a few listens, it started to grow on me and now it's the album I listen to most. The melodies take a little longer to stick but once they do, that's it. I don't find it lacking emotion or anything. I think the flat production is really blocking out an otherwise great album.
  • Really pathetic... it's like they drained their music of almost all it's emotion.
  • Just a few traces of Band of Horses. Not a bad album overall, but not a Band of Horses album. That being said, Heartbreak On The 101 is great.
  • Really bad
