Mumford and Sons new album
Lover of the light
Three years after the success of their platinum selling record “Sigh No More,” which sold over a million copies in both the UK and the US, Mumford and Sons has done it again with their wonderfully mastered album “Babel.” The track “I Will Wait,” has an upbeat guitar melody, distinct banjo riffs, tight harmonies, and a stomp-your-boots kind of beat. “Ghosts that we knew” is an achingly beautiful ballad with an emotional instrumental bridge, the soft guitar and banjo picking escalates with added strings, the tempo quickens and the vocals get louder and more intense as the singer cries out: “I will hold on with all of my might, just promise me that we'll be alright.” The track “Lovers’ Eyes” reminds me of something you would hear in a pub, people lamenting over a drink about the curses love sometimes brings. If you are a Mumford and Sons fan like myself, this new album will not disappoint you.
