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

Editorial Reviews

2010 release, the third album from the Low Country's premier Rock 'n' Roll outfit. Produced by Band of Horses with additional production from Phil Ek, mixed by Dave Sardy, and recorded over a 16-month period, the songs on Infinite Arms project the essence of the different American locales that became the setting for the recording and songwriting process, yielding the group's most focused and dynamic recordings to date. Through touring together in support of 2007's Cease To Begin and during breaks in the Infinite Arms recording process, Band Of Horses have become a cohesive force, with all members making invaluable contributions to the unmistakable sound that has been present since the band's inception.

Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I turned onto Band of Horses (BOH) after discovering Carrisa's Wierd (a now-defunct band that included BOH frontman Ben Bridwell and former BOH member Mat Brooke). Their first record, 'Everything All the Time', was ridiculously addictive, and strong enough to make the second (''Cease to Begin') a mandatory buy. The main difference between those first two records was the confidence and maturity in songwriting.

For better or worse, the differences between that second album and this new one, their major-label debut, are pretty similar. Just as 'Cease' displayed greater confidence and cohesion in songwriting, this record finds the band even more 'settled in' to their sound and scope. How much one enjoys this album will mostly just come down to whether they enjoy the band's chosen direction. 'Everything' suggested that BOH could evolve into either a shoegazer band or a dreamrock outfit, and 'Infinite Arms' confirms that they are the latter, with a bit of alt-country twang.

This isn't a bad thing. I was initially somewhat amused by some reviewers' comparisons between this album and 70s ballad-pop, but on further consideration, I guess I can see it- it's just that this naturally seems more relevant, but these ARE essentially alt-country-dreamrock ballads. Those familiar with BOH's earlier work will appreciate the statement that this is 'St. Augustine'-BOH and not 'Funeral'-BOH, and should use that distinction when deciding whether to purchase 'Infinite Arms'.

There are some real high points on this record, notably 'On My Way Back Home' and the title track, which are both slow and deliberate, grand and sweeping.

I listened to this straight through about half-a-dozen times, and am pleased and impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first Band Of Horses album where everything works. August 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was always a mild Band Of Horses fan. A friend of mine burned me the first two cds to listen to, and I always kind of liked them. The combination of hipster indie rock and the classic country-fied rock was very pleasing to listen to, but that was about all. I did enjoy Cease To Begin a lot, though, since the hipster elements had diminished some, and they were embracing country and Gram Parsons a little more. All in all, I kinda dismissed them as yet another indie band with nothing much to say.

That all changed with this album.

With Infinite Arms, the Band of Horses lets their hair down and wears all of their influences on their sleeves. A tighter lineup this time around, everyone is contributing to Ben Bridwell's timeless sound. Cease To Begin was the blueprint for this album, as it showed more confidence and cohesion in their songwriting, yet I always knew they were destined for greatness. With Infinite Arms, the greatness is reached. The indie schtick is basically over, now the band is a true rock and roll band with some fantastic 3-part harmony and a penchant for killer melodies and catchy hooks to boot.

The album begins with the 3-strike punch of Factory, Compliments, and Laredo. These are easily some of the best work the band has ever done, and at the same time, are vastly different from each other. Factory is a moving ballad about love in the office with some soaring strings. Compliments is a great alternative country rocker with some fantastic harmonies, and Laredo could very well be the road rock song of 2010.

Unlike their last 2 albums, the middle half doesn't sag at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Road Trip Music March 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Band of Horses is one of those groups you want to put on for an extended road trip through the heart of America on a warm night with the windows rolled down, the album cover even shows you a picture of stars rolling by a scenic mountain. Infinite Arms is a bit folksier than their last album Cease to Begin (and lacks any songs about great basketball players). And though there may not be a song as great as Nobody's Gonna Love You on Infinite Arms, the album is more solid than the previous one. The album starts off with the soothing Factory that sets a great mood. The highlight of the album is Laredo, the hardest rocking song among the bunch with great visual lyrics. And the album ends with the epic six minute Neighbor. Infinite Arms is a must for your next road trip.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing September 22, 2010
By Mass
Format:MP3 Music
This album does not compare to the first two albums by BOH. The album is not horrible and you may actually really like it if you have not listened to the prior albums. BOH is great because of there unique sound and during some of these songs that originality is gone. It just sounds like a regular rock band instead of the sound we have grown to love from BOH. I will say this album is worth listening to but I am confident you will come to the conclusion that the first two albums are ten times better.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Highlights Carry "Infinite" August 3, 2010
By Ryman
Format:MP3 Music
I was surprised to see so many "mediocre" reviews of this great album. I agree with another reviewer that said that this was BOH settling into their sound - which to me, is a southern beach-boy's-esqu sound. If you liked the harmonies and springy guitars of the other albums, I think you will find this album quite satisfying.

There are several highlights that carry this album. "Older" is my favorite, using a twangy Telocaster that reminded me of a classic country song, mixed with BOH's lyrics and vocal harmonies - which meld perfectly. "Blue Beard" is the best song on the album to me - the epitome of BOH's vocal talent. This is what sets this band apart from others - the beauty of their vocals, ranging high and low, yet sounding effortless. Lastly - I really like "Dilly" which sounds much different that what BOH usually put out - it reminds me of a "Nada Surf" song from their album "Let Go." It's spacey, yet pop-py - it uses synth and it sounds more 90's than other stuff BOH does - it's not for everyone but its a solid fun track.

All in all, I love this album - and feel that there are too many gems to write this off as a "3 star album." "Older" and "Blue Beard" are two of Band of Horses's best songs.
