Mumford & Sons

Sigh No More

Mumford & Sons’ debut album has already done fairly well for them. Between “The Cave” and “Little Lion Man” the band has gotten some good attention. The noise created from these tracks is due to the mixture that’s heard on their two singles... Mumford & Sons blends traditional UK music with pop to create a blend that’s qualifies as exemplary. The good news is that when the band is upbeat and they’ve got a song that has some energy to it, there’s nothing quite like it. It’s like a better version of Death Cab but with UK roots. The bad news is that these songs don’t dominate the record like they should. They’re present, just splashed in instead of being the main event. The rest of the album isn’t anything to scoff at; it’s just a little droning after four songs that sound the same. Mumford & Sons have already done pretty well for themselves with this record. This isn't going to get extremely popular and then fade away… This band is going to get a gradual build into long-term success. This album is just the first step.
