  1. Even when he's singing about zoning out on the couch, it feels Grand Canyon expansive.
  2. Seemingly able to kick out a chug-a-lug stomper with absolute ease at this point, the best moments on Infinite Arms center around Bridwell’s growing confidence in the his deadliest weapon: his voice.
  3. Frontman Ben Bridwell's airy vocals and cozy lyrics have stayed consistent, but the impressive production work by the band and Phil Ek places the gorgeous melodies front and center without sacrificing Band of Horses' rustic power.

The album feels cohesive, touching on all of the separate components of this band's style to create a satisfying work. Worth a listen. Full Review »

    Bring mainstream rock, pyschedelic pop, and folk together, "Infinite Arms" would be the end result with no sparkle or anything else that wouldBring mainstream rock, pyschedelic pop, and folk together, "Infinite Arms" would be the end result with no sparkle or anything else that would keep the album alive. It's kind of like, "I've heard this way too many times before". Full Review »
