Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.120) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[L]ong on dreamlike, rootsy songs that top churning guitars with glacially pretty, reverb-slathered vocals....CEASE TO BEGIN is expertly made..."

Rolling Stone (p.116) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Top Albums of the Year 2007" -- "This music is simultaneously downcast and sky-cresting..."

Spin (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Every sound lingers, and each stretched-out moment is welcome."

Uncut (p.84) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he 10 songs here rely on slightly reedy and meandering country-rock. It's a sound that devotees of Crazy Horse or My Morning Jacket will find conspicuously pleasing..."

Magnet (p.91) - "Bridwell and Co. nail the soft/loud dynamic better than any group in recent memory, and CEASE TO BEGIN is a fine, fitting return to familiar ground."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.47) - "For those with more eclectic tastes, CEASE TO BEGIN is an enthralling album..."

Q (Magazine) (p.12) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "From the anthem-like 'Ode To LRC' to the sanguine finale of 'Window Blues,' this is beautifully paced and utterly beguiling."

Paste (magazine) - "[The album] marked a new chapter in Band of Horses' development, as well as a shift in Bridwell's writing, veering from the soft-focus impressionism toward a more narrative-driven style."
