Editorial Reviews

It's safe to assume that fans of My Morning Jacket will take an immediate liking to the first song on Lord Huron's 2012 debut album, Lonesome Dreams. Ends of the Earth finds frontman Ben Schneider singing in a high, throaty croon similar to that of MMJ frontman Jim James (right down to the gratuitous amounts of reverb). But there are sublime spaghetti western undertones resonating here; they have more in common with Bob Dylan's 1973 score for Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid than anything related to Ennio Morricone.

Customer Reviews

Every song is good on this album.

It's been a long time since I've listened to an album and flat out enjoyed every single song.

All is great--the singing, harmonies, lyrics, music, instruments, songs perfectly produced.

Well, I appreciate the other reviewers enthusiasm for this album, which is partly why I decided to give it a try. This is a very pleasant album to listen to and it is true that there are really no weak songs on it (here's the but...)However, there are also no real standout songs. Most of the tracks share a very similar tempo and are a mix of the same various stringed instruments. The vocals are presented slightly behind the instrumentals on all tracks. All in all this is a nice album for listening to while you are working around the house, or doing some arts and crafts, but I find myself getting ansy for something different by track 5 or 6 if I'm listening to the whole album straight through in my car or while enjoying a beverage on my couch.

This is great, intoxicating music, plain and simple. It took one song, and I was sold. LH hits a sweet spot that so many bands seem to miss.. absolutely perfecting the sound that Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear and Band of Horses keep trying to make.

First song: excellent. Second song: catchy. Third song: weirdly top 50. Fourth song: "Oh, so this is a little different. I'll have to think about this for awhile." Fifth song: nice; I like. Sixth song: yeah, kind of like the Boss, but gamelan-- WHAT! Seventh song: highly listenable. Eighth song: prairie sadness. Ninth song: resurgent command. Tenth song: lilting loss and lamentable leave-taking. All in all, this album gets better with every listen. You'll find yourself playing these in your head when you don't have access. Really, there are few albums over the course of time wherein every track is worthy. Give it a listen, give it time. You won't be sorry.

Great album. A little Bon Iver-ish, a little Paul Simon 'Graceland'-ish, a little like a lot of different musicians but not strikingly similar to anything I've ever seriously listened to. Highly recommended for road trips. And yes, the vinyl does come with a digital download. Good band - my girlfriend even likes it so that says something - buy their album and go to their shows.

Brilliant song writing. The wilderness feel to the album and the overwhelming presence of a Michigan spirit. Would highly recommend.

This is a brilliant album and deserves to be a huge hit. It is one of those rare albums with no dud songs or filler. The harmonies are amazing , and blend perfectly with some great guitar playing. My favourite tracks were ghosts on the shore and lullaby. Buy this album and bore your friends by keep talking about it! He also has two great ep's out too.

I bought this album about a week ago and can't stop listening to it. This album has everything I want to hear. Excellent vocal harmonies, beautifully layered sounds, dramatic rhythms with interesting and dynamic percussion, lyrics with feeling. Overall, just impressive musicianship. Highly recommended.

Lonesome Dreams is the perfection definition of how an album should be produced. Every single song on this album has key sounds and body moving beats. The sounds that you hear almost put you in the drivers seat of your own journey; you simply feel like your in another place or another time. I could spend all day with this review talking about all the positives, but in order to save you time I'll be simple and frank.. BUY THE ALBUM!!! #mustbuy #legendary
