CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The 405

While they do operate within the realms of Americana, Lord Huron draw on a much wider breadth of instruments and influences, their sound is a lot busier and complex than Fleet Foxes have ever been.

60
Consequence of Sound

The clean-cut nature of Lonesome Dreams is one of its greatest strengths, but also its fatal flaw.

60
PopMatters

Lonesome Dreams sounds a lot like a kid from Michigan who ran to LA, who channeled Paul Simon channeling South Africa, Simon, who made falling out of love in a downtown taxi a sacred space. 

56
Pitchfork

It's all so carefully composed, so studiously old-timey, this once-vibrant vision of American music overlaid with the drab browns and coppers of a Six Flags souvenir photobooth.

50
DIY

It seems they tried their hardest, and there were certainly some memorable moments, but these were ultimately outweighed by hackneyed banality and genre-bound cliches.
