Genius. Fucking genius. You know, I thought that real meaning and depth in songwriting had disappeared from the mainstream but here are Mumford & Sons, defiant and proud, proving me wrong yet a-fucking-gain.

FUCK.

No this is everything that is wrong in modern music. I have no problem with vapid catchy harmless unoffensive bland boring unoriginal uninspired pop music (I like Enrique more than Godspeed) as long as it knows that is all it is. But this IS that but pretends to be "good" music which is just so bad and makes it fail artistically on every possible level...also their songs aren't well written and don't vary at all.

Bah, "pretense" as a concept is just something people slap on music in recent times. But who calls Led Zeppelin pretentious? They didn't name their first four albums. Or Rush, who released Hemispheres (a prog album of 4 songs)? No, pretense is a rather dumbfounding term to use in the music industry.....

don't like the music fine but don't accuse them of writing it just to "move units" that's retarded. they didn't blow up until about a year after their debut was released. I agree that they're kind of annoying now (I was rolling my eyes when I watched their set streaming from Coachella) but the hate they're getting here is just ridiculous. I saw them at Sasquatch "before they were big" and they were so good.

anyway fuck you all I still like this band. I don't love them but they're good.

The fact they didnt catch on until 6-12 months after their debut is not proof that they arent a generic mass market "indie" band manufactured by a giant record label. I think the fact they came out of no where, did no touring really at all before their album, and had a giant budget video for their single 2 hours after the record was released speaks more about their credibility than the speed at which mainstream America decided to get on the bandwagon.

sexualsoybean, your comment didn't respond to what I said really at all. their music was clearly not written to "move units" as their relative obscurity when their debut was released proves. if they were only in it to move units then why did they not pinch out an EP or two in the past year to rake in more cash? oh yeah because that's not why they make music.

like i said, dislike the music fine, but don't try to blame it on anything other than personal taste. itt people are hating this band for all the wrong reasons. except that lyric Knott quoted, that's a terrible lyric and a legitimate reason for disliking the song.

I was in love with Sigh No More when it came out, I gave it a 4.5 (I think i have it as a 3.5 now). Then like a year later everyone on sputnik started saying they were the worst band of all time. It was all very confusing for me; this is why you need to feed me my opinions on new music before I listen to it, come on sputnik.

That's indie logic my man. For example, I'm a big fan of Arcade Fire and loved their album, The Suburbs. But then it won a Grammy, and although that didn't change their existing recordings per sé, their songs all changed at that moment.

And in all honesty I understand both sides of the argument for Mumford & Sons.

Wow, I didn't expect this when I made the article. I don't necessarily like this song, but I really enjoyed Sigh No More (I have it at a 4). I actually like that they're popular, it adds variation when I listen to the radio and Little Lion Man or The Cave comes on. I'm not saying that I don't enjoy pop radio, but some of it gets old over time. I admit, some of Mumford & Sons' songs bore me, but as a whole I think that they are a very talented band

Bands get big and all of a sudden people think they get hate because they are big. Use logic. If a band is now big or bigger, of course they will get more hate, because more people know about them and listen to them. More people probably like them too.

That being said, I have not listened to this band other than this song... and it was quite weak.

EDIT: Wow, like super weak. It went nowhere.

Because I agree with you. I dont think they "write music to move units" thats just silly. However I do think they are bland, generic, boring and a bit manufactured.

I still have their album at a 3 or 3.5. I dont think they are terrible. I just hate that this is the indie band girls on facebook shout about when there are much better options out there.

that is the most retarded thing ever. no they fucking didn't, you're just a dipshit who cares to much about how the public perceives the music you listen to. that album winning a grammy had literally zero effect on my enjoyment of the album. if it did for you then you suck at music, hard.

The hate for Mumford and Sons is not simply because they got popular, but because there is a lot better indie folk that is much better than them, that gets no credit in the mainstream. Furthermore, Mumford and Sons music is quite gimmicky and tends to rely on a few songwriting cliches. The band is not bad, but for the most part they are just decent, not good by any stretch of the imagination.

This is a song. Not much else to say about it. I mean, my brain is telling me these notes sound good together (until the end, at least), but my heart was completely unaffected... Wouldn't give two shits about folk if this were to be considered good folk. Maybe that's why there's hate? B/c the popularity makes this a common interpretation of what folk is and that might make people who are open to the message but not into folk yet lose interest and discredit the genre without anyone to let them know any better? Which would be a disservice to good folk artists pouring out their tortured and well-weathered souls to try to make a more collectively fulfilling life experience. Just sayin'.
