I just got my first CD from Band of Horses, their new album. Not sure why I have not bought their music before. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sh8OTO4wSMs

Love Band of Horses. Michael, you can't go wrong with any of their other three previous albums.

Sorry to keep going on about the band, but I could talk about their music forever! grin

Anyhow, they gained a different breed of fans when the album, Supernature, came out because of the commercial success of the song, "Ooh La La"...which happens to be my LEAST favorite of all their songs! Well, some long-time fans said during the tour of that album, the new "Ooh La La" fans had the look of "wtf?" and their jaws dropped as soon as Alison opened her mouth to sing the operatic intro of the song, "Utopia". grin These songs are as opposite as can be! "Utopia" is off Felt Mountain, by the way.

"Utopia"

"Ooh La La"


Mary, I've really been enjoying their new album. Her voice is surely the centerpiece, but it is very understated in a good way. I don't know how else to describe it, but it takes a few listens to fully appreciate. It is a quietly beautiful album.

I've had a hard time with this album. The jazz influence is not really my cup of tea. I like the album, but do not love it like Iron and Wine's other releases. However, I do like that it is a new sound. I appreciate bands and artists that aren't afraid to try something new.

Finally had some time to get the initial setup done from the Denon to the new Onkyo TX-NR5010 with the new M100's....first track up as I really wanted to hear guitar was Johnny Winter Captured Live Sweet Papa John, I really don't know how audio can get any better? Simply breath taking! Now for the rest of the album...BTW between the low end of the M100's and the EP500 what a knock out punch WOW,I don't know if I dare move to the EP6 or 800 yikes!

Ommadawn album. A masterpiece equal to or better than Tubular Bells, imo.

Picked up my buddies new CD Saturday. It's hard to believe he only taught himself how to play guitar about 11-12 years ago.

I'm so glad you like it. It is truly a beautiful album, and I LOVE Alison's voice being the focus. I would love to see this band write and perform a James Bond theme one of these days. Their style certainly fits.
