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. It's a great record, but it IS very laid back, and there just aren't any rock-song standouts to look forward to. BOH fans won't be disappointed as long as they don't go in looking for a 'Funeral'/'Ghost'-type anthemic track to punctuate the experience. This works as an experience more than as a collection of songs, and in that, it succeeds.
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. It contains some of the most beautiful work the band has penned, whether it's the haunting title track, the sparse Evening Kitchen (which the guitarist Tyler Ramsey penned) or the Wilco-esque Dilly.
This also sees the keyboardist Ryan Monroe coming into play with one of the best songs on the album, Older, a song Gram Parsons wished he wrote. Once again, the harmonies are irresistible. And then, to top it off, the band finishes the album with Neighbor, an epic rock closer if there ever was one. The last 2 minutes of the song where the floodgates open are some of the best 2 minutes you'll ever hear.
This is a fantastic album from a band I kinda dismissed earlier. Just goes to show you that you can't judge a book by it's cover.
Overall, the album isn't bad, but definitely not on par with their first two albums. It's lacking something...call it passion or whatever you want, but lacking it is. The only problem is that, with the exception of "Evening Kitchen", Infinite Arms is catchy as hell. You can complain all you want about an albums flaws, but at the end of the day, if you can't seem to take it out of your CD player, I suppose the band has accomplished their mission.
