"Great article. I heard a track on NPR and really like the whole album.  Its ever so close to having that icky Nashville sheen to it, but its just rootsy enough to be on what I would consider the "right" side of the line.  While…"

Mike Hopkins commented on Barbara Bruederlin's blog post 'CD Review - Band of Horses "Mirage Rock"'
"Nicely done, my sentiments exactly.  I seem to like each of their albums less than the one that came before it.  "Dumpster World" is beyond cringe-worthy, I can't imagine what they were thinking."
