CRITIC REVIEWS

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.

Consequence of Sound

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

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.

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.

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.

First listen had me thinking, 'Gee? This sounds just like Fleet Foxes.' Quite the derivative foray into that worn to often to be of use genre of American folk-rock with echoplex.Frankly, I'm glad this style/sound is on the wane. Or, at least I hope it is. Did I mention derivative?
