    I don't like talking trash, but this album is simply not very good. i would say: over-produced and uninspired fare

  1. A sophisticated, mature, and altogether superior follow-up.
  2. Cease punctuates its magnitude among Sub Pop's top-drawer power elite (The Shins and Iron & Wine), asserting this Band of Horses' fast-rising run for the roses.
  3. Cease falters when it dips into mediocre balladry ('Detlef Schrempf,' 'Marry Song'), and at a scant 35 minutes, the album at times hints at greatness but ultimately leaves you wanting more.
