Pitchfork wrote: “Wedding the elemental, earthworn rock of My Morning Jacket to the atmospheric pop of the Shins or Red House Painters, this debut from Sub Pop signees Band of Horses is immediately, invitingly familiar. But if its roots are recognizable, the music is anything but commonplace… Though Band of Horses aren’t likely to be heralded as trailblazers, they do sound quietly innovative and genuinely refreshing over the course of these 10 sweeping, heart-on-sleeve anthems. Ultimately, the band’s most winning trait is its delicate balance of elements– between gloom and promise, quiet and loud, epic and ordinary, familiar and new, direct and elliptical, artist and listener.” Score: 8.8/10.
