i'm going to see them next Thursday. Usually I listen to a bands new album almost obsessively to get ready for a show but I just can't get into the Mirage Rock at all. A couple of songs are pretty good but nothing really stands out and overall the album is pretty darn disappointing. Also, after watching a stream of their album release show, there was a noticeable difference in the quality of their old songs and their new songs played live. It was actually a really drastic difference. The new songs lacked energy and everyone seemed horribly out of sync in my opinion.

Well, Side B is getting multiple plays on the turntable.  Side A I'm less inclined to relive any time soon.  I think a lot of the negativitiy on this thread actually made the new album a pleasant surprise... not SO horrible, and while much of the second side is derivative of the Stones (Electric Music) and CSN (Dumpster World, Long Vows), I dig it. 
Close enough!

I didn't think the music was horrible on it's own. It's pleasant and easy to listen to.

I do think it's horrible in the context of their other work, especially Everything and Cease.

Me too.  Maybe I'll finally get to meet you then.
My heart can't wait to meet you on the other side.

Ha ha ha!  If she quit her job we all know where she'd be!  BOH tour would not be it, but she would not be opposed to listening to them.  I think??!!
anything + reverb always = better

I know a lot of people have lost interest (me included). But by the looks of their most recent twitter post, they are just about done with a new record.

Sometimes when I get in my zone, you'd think I was stoned, but I never as they say, touched the stuf

Great news!  Mirage Rock sounded like their attempt at a 70s album to my ears when it first came out.  The songs have grown on me since seeing them live a few times.  They were great at OBH, both headlining and acoustic.  And their warmup club show in SoCal a couple nights before OBH was really good.
oh! this feeling it is wonderful! don't you ever turn it off!

I still lack the ability to get behind Band of Horses!
Can you keep it simple? Can you let the snare crack? Can you let it move without holding back?

I kind of like the new song, but they covered The New Year's song "The End's Not Near" years ago & this song really seems like their version of another The New Year's song call "Sinking Ship."

I like the first 2 albums so much that I'll always give them the benefit of the doubt, even though I really wasn't into the last one either. Hoping they'll tour soon and I'll get to see them again. looking forward to this new one!
