Thoughts on Mumford & SonsPosted by RollTide1987 on 10/1/12 at 9:03 am
I'm very picky when it comes to music. I have a comfort zone that I like to stay in. I'm big into rock and I can stand a little pop, rap (if it's clean), as well as a little country (as long as it's not too "twangy"). I just recently, meaning within the last year, got into Mumford & Sons and I have to say that they are a breath of fresh air. I have yet to really listen to their second album in depth but I happen to believe that their first album is one of the better debut albums out there. Sigh No More, The Cave, Winter Winds, Roll Away Your Stone, Little Lion Man, and Thistle & Weeds are all very good songs that I could listen to all day.
I'm a big fan of "Y'allternative" and pretty much anything that Paste Magazine has promoted the past few years. Mumford and Sons is pretty much that sound with the rough edges sanded down, so it makes sense they'd be the act who would have bigtime crossover appeal. I think that makes them less interesting, but they are a pretty solid band.
