Nice review Sowing, not too impressed by the album tbh. I get into arguments all the time with my friend who reveres Mumford like gods, so this is nice to see.

I've listened to the album at least 30+ times now. Keep listening and you will start to hear more standout songs. There are still 2-3 that I haven't caught on to yet. I think "Babel," "Lover of the Light," "Hopeless Wanderer," "Broken Crown," and "Below My Feet" are all fantastic. And if you have the deluxe version, "Where Are You Now?" is also great. Definitely not a flop in my opinion.

'Babel' is an awesome track. =)

The only part I didn't like in it was when things slow down. It felt tacked on and I'd actually prefer if the track ended before then.

1st - I don't get the hate at all. Still better than 95% of anything on the radio.



2nd - you can never have to much banjo. Never!



3rd - It's an good album, but sure as hell not ground breaking by any stretch of the imagination but I'm sure that's not what they were aiming for anyway.



Hating on it because fans think they are the second coming? That makes no sense whatsoever. Hate it because you hate it, fine, but no other reason is valid. Other people's opinion on music should never affect what you think of it.

I dunno. The banjo here just starts to sound really grating and banjo-less after a while for me. =/

It's played more like a guitar here than a banjo, at least for me. It has none of them sweet rolls and
his plucking technique is weird and because the chords are so focused on the melody; it loses the
power of the banjo and what it can provide for a song.

If they used the banjo like 1/3 the amount of time they currently do, I'd probably like this at least 0.5 more

Banjos will be the next trend for pop music in 2013 I'm calling it

I feel the same. Winston should learn how to play the slide guitar or pedal steel. =)
