Amoeba Review

02/10/2014

Oh how we long for the days of MTV Unplugged, when our favorite bands would be forced to play acoustic versions of their songs. Even Hole did one! Band of Horses had the great idea of recording songs they did acoustically at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville over two nights and culling 10 songs from those sets. So we get a terrific overview of Band of Horses’ catalog, handy for those who may have tuned in early (or late) to this band and glazed over the rest of their material. Early favorites like “The Funeral” and “No One’s Gonna Love You” sound stunning here, both candidates to be BoH’s “Everlong (acoustic)” and steal tender hearts. But it does the band good to put some of its stronger newer material alongside those songs, with Mirage Rock’s “Slow Cruel Hands of Time” in particular standing out with its elegiac lyrics and spine-tingling melody, easily trumping the album version. The backup vocals in particular on Acoustic at the Ryman highlight the strength of BoH as a band and not just as a vehicle for Ben Bridwell’s songwriting, coming across like a modern-day Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young at times. If you’re a fan of this band, this one’s a no-brainer, offering a nice overview of their career and beautiful new renditions of fan favorites.
