With the release of Mirage Rock, Band of Horses have found a flawless sweet spot: the album easily combines the emotional, atmospheric, and catchy nature of Everything All The Time and Cease To Begin with the structured and more produced sounds on Infinite Arms. The album has great rock songs, a few outstanding "emotional" songs, and even a few strictly country songs. Mirage Rock combines all the outstanding qualities from Band of Horses first three album together on just about every track without losing the flow of a conventional album. So even though the album has the quality of a greatest hits album, combining all of the best qualities of Band of Horses first three albums, yet it still has the flow, structure, and lyrical themes of an actual album. This means that Band of Horses not only have found their sweet spot; they have found the sweetest of all spots musically.
