Album Haiku Review | The Lumineers “The Lumineers”
Rating | 5/5
Song’s I Can’t Take Off Repeat | “Classy Girls,” “Ho Hey,” &“Charlie Boy.”
Lumineers’ Debut Album
Coffee Shop Soundtrack
The Lumineers, like an undoctored photo, have a pure quality captured in the moment of recording. The vocal tracks are pure and have a live quality, especially in “Slow it Down.” The track “Classy Girls” sounds as if it was recorded in a restaurant, with the audience voices sounding in the background. The instrumentation throughout the album is simple with repetitive guitar and/or banjo rifts and punchy piano accompaniments. The drums, strings, and audience participation by clapping along, combined create a rich folk sound. This album is perfect for studying in a coffee shop or listening to on a road trip with friends.
