Band of Horses is an American rock band formed in 2004 in Seattle by Ben Bridwell. The band has released five studio albums, the most successful of which is 2010's Grammy-nominated Infinite Arms. The band's lineup, which included Mat Brooke for the debut album, has undergone several changes; the most-recent lineup of Bridwell, Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey, Bill Reynolds, and Creighton Barrett, had been together for several years until Ramsey and Reynolds' departure in 2017, recording three albums.

Mirage Rock is the fourth studio album by Band of Horses and was released on September 18, 2012 on Columbia Records Contents. On July 10, 2012, the fourth album's title was confirmed as Mirage Rock, and the tracklisting and artwork were also unveiled. Bridwell has stated that there is no such place as Mirage Rock and explained that the name "is a total piss take.

On ‘Mirage Rock’, however, Ben Bridwell and co have been jump-started with a new swagger. The title track – at once dreamy but, y’know, rocking – encapsulates it perfectly. There are still enough highlights within its more classic Band Of Horses moments (the ridiculously Neil Young-y ‘Dumpster World’, or ‘Slow Cruel Hands Of Time’ and its plaintive, perfect vocals) to ensure there’s no risk of the band doing a Kings Of Leon. But ‘Mirage Rock’ could and should be the LP that at least bumps them a good few places higher up next year’s festival bills.

Mirage Rock, however, is a very different proposition. Remarkably for a band’s fourth offering, it’s only the second that’s the product of a consistent group, the lineup unchanged from Infinite Arms. Settled, Bridwell has duly slackened the reins, adopting a relaxed, collective writing and recording process to capture a sound that’s loose and raw at times. Band Of Horses have always been more than the sum of their parts, so the decision to finally explore a settled band dynamic made a lot of sense. Yet it’s too comfortable, old ideas diluted to homeopathic proportions, results half-hearted and strangely spiritless, songs feeling overly long.

Dear Music Appreciators,INFINITE ARMS is one of my all-time favorite albums. The music, the lyrics, the sequencing of such a consistently interesting and awesome sounding collection of songs - but really it's the overall feeling and sound of the album I think. There's just something about that lonesome-canyon-big-starry-sky sound that resonates with me. I think it has a lot to do with the reverb.That sound is mostly missing from MIRAGE ROCK.For me, listening to MIRAGE ROCK for the first time was like seeing a favorite movie star without their makeup. It's the moment of truth. Does the lack of artificial enhancements confirm or deny their star power?Despite its flaws, I believe MIRAGE ROCK is a confirmation.Even without their studio effects these guys are still good. Maybe not great, but good. For me here are the most glaring missteps on the record:-the misplaced hard rock departure during the "Horse With No Name"-ish track "Dumpster World"-the patches of corny words and music and weak-sauce vocals on "Electric Music"- not letting Tyler Ramsey just have the vocals on his song "Everything's Gonna Be Undone" all to himself. Is that Bridwell in the background or somebody else? They need to pipe down a bit and let Tyler Ramsey have his moment to shine.- the bland instrumentation and monotonous tempo on "Feud."This is all forgivable as far as I'm concerned, and with great songs like "Slow Cruel Hands of Time," "Shut In Tourist," and "Everything's Gonna Be Undone," this is a worthwhile purchase for music fans who want a great little organic sounding country rock record from an increasingly essential American band that isn't afraid to strike out in new and unexpected directions with every release. But what will the next album sound like? As good as MIRAGE ROCK can be at times, I don't think anyone will want MIRAGE ROCK Part II...I for one will want more reverb. And maybe some cow bell.Sincerely,Constant Listener
