Rolling Stone (p.68) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Suddenly, the band has blossomed into something more like the Band, with rich harmonies -- even when Bridwell just multitracks his own voice -- and fuller arrangements."
Spin - "Still present, and lovely, are the lilting ballads, afternoon-delight AM gold, and keening boot-stompers, all delivered with a back-porch abandon..."
Alternative Press - "[A] sonic step forward....Bridwell's vocals are glossier, while the album's rock arrangements are lush and complex."
Billboard (p.59) - "[T]he stomping rhythm and mammoth chorus of first single 'Compliments' make it the most flat-out enjoyable track the band has ever recorded."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "They're aspiring to lofty melodic standards, and on the lilting sing-along 'Older' and the earthy lo-fi contemplation of 'Evening Kitchen' they achieve them in timeless fashion."
Clash (magazine) - "INFINITE ARMS sees the band, led by Ben Bridwell, drop many of their 'indie rock' pretensions for a more classic, rootsy American sound....INFINITE ARMS is their strongest album yet..."
Uncut (magazine) (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hile it sees Ben Bridwell leaving his lo-fi past behind, INFINITE ARMS is a neoclassic landmark that you'll need to get on vinyl."

Release Date
17 May 2010
Featuring a new lineup, a rather loose definition of Americana, and funding from a major label, Band of Horses' third album is a game changer. What began as a partnership between Ben Bridwell and Mat Brooke has since blossomed into a five-piece band, with Bridwell serving as the only link between the group's 2006 debut, Everything All the Time, and the present. It's only natural, then, that Infinite Arms sounds wholly different from the albums that came before it, both of which mixed guitar-driven rock with dusty, jangled folk. There's still plenty of folk to be found here, and Band of Horses bang their way through "Compliments" as a concession to their rock fans. Infinite Arms is a borderline pop album, though, dressed up in flannel and facial hair to disguise the fact that these melodies are, with few exceptions, the sweetest of the group's career. There are harmonies galore, including thick, Sacred Harp-type triads that beef up Bridwell's vocals while drawing parallels to Fleet Foxes and the Beach Boys. At times, it's hard to separate Band of Horses from their influences; "Blue Beard," although downright gorgeous, cops its verse from Smile-era Brian Wilson and its bridge from the Starland Vocal Band, and "Older" sounds like the country-rock single Gram Parsons never wrote. But the album's willingness to sample from so many different genres -- roots, soft rock,, power pop, indie folk -- makes it sound like nothing else in 2010, and Band of Horses connect the dots by layering everything with canyon-worthy reverb and cinematic guitars. For those who let it sink in, Infinite Arms could be a contender for the year's best summer album, not to mention the band's most cohesive record to date. ~ Andrew Leahey
