A review of the Band of Horses album Why Are You OK.

 

Seattle Indie Rockers, Band of Horses have released their fifth studio album, Why Are You OK, boasting twelve tracks and production by Jason Lytle from the band Grandaddy. Despite the seemingly revolving door of band members, Band of Horses has managed to sate their fans yet again with their unique brand of soothing Indie Rock or, "Dad Rock" if you will.


Why Are You OK is undoubtedly beautiful, the general feel of the album bumbles along from anywhere to straight up classic country to Beatles ballad. The album would be absolutely perfect for a long drive or a small get-together of people who have no intention to getting rowdy at any point during suggested get-together. The album is a real gem if you're willing and/or in the mood to get down to it's level and pay attention to it. Otherwise it's as gentle as an errant cloud in the sky and it has the potential to float by without anyone noticing it.


Lead singer Ben Bridwell wrote the majority of songs while sitting in his own garage, and as a result the album's lyrics paint a very homey picture. It's easy to understand the angle of this album if you let the calm happiness wash over you and listen to the words of a man who is obviously happy and content to be at home with his family. Rarely do you ever get such clarity on an entire album. Why Are You OK is definitely more ambient than previous Band of Horses records, but if you let it, it will grow on you.
