4. Wilder Mind (2015)
“I think it’s clear that a lot of the negative criticism is born out of comparison to Mumford & Sons’ previous albums, which is understandable but I personally feel it’s a tad unnecessary. On its own, “Wilder Mind” is a joy to listen to and I feel like it’s a natural try-out of a different tone. Out of the 12 tracks, I love all of them except “Monster” and “Cold Arms,” so I couldn’t be happier from buying the album. For Summer 2015, this album will help define the beautiful mornings and evenings I had the privilege to enjoy, and I’m ever thankful for that. I say you give the entire album a chance on Spotify or YouTube and then decide for yourself; judge it based on how it can stand on its own and be enjoyable.”
3. Delta (2018)
“I have been a Mumford and sons fan for years and I fell in love with their unique folk style of banjo and acoustic guitar combined with rock. I have been obsessively listening to Sigh no More and Babel ever since ..Having said that, I was not sure what to expect of this new album since quite honestly Wilder Mind was a disappointment at first, but grew on me later only because it was Mumford and sons. But I must say that I was taken aback by how wonderfully unique these songs are as well. I am again obsessed with Mumford and sons even though there’s little banjo and acoustics here. This album is made with very high quality rich sounds . It’s a MUST HAVE!”
2. Sigh No More (2009)
“I discovered these guys a couple years ago and always thought this album would be a great addition to my vinyl collection. I have an eclectic taste in music, so this fits right in; a little folk, a little rock-n-roll and bluegrass, contemporary yet timeless. The songwriting and musicianship is exquisite, as well as Mumford’s vocals. It’s good to know there are still real artists in the music industry today. Would certainly recommend for anyone’s vinyl collection.”

1. Babel (2012)
“Like the other glowing reviews, I believe this is a worthy and remarkable second effort by the Brit folk band that blew my mind with their first album, Sigh No More. I purchased the deluxe version and am glad I did, the bonus tracks Where are you now and For those below are great, even The boxer cover was a pleasure. There are rousing anthems with the wall of acoustic guitar sound with Marcus Mumford’s relentless strumming, as on SNM, (Babel and I will wait, Not with haste, Whispers in the Dark) and the swelling of the harmonies of the band’s voices together still come across in many songs, incl. Hopeless Wanderer and Where are you now. There isn’t a bad let-down or filler song among these.
The difference I notice is that there are more contemplative tracks, with even simpler instrumentation. They are less anthemic and more personal with very evocative lyrics (Below my feet, For those below, Ghosts that we knew, Holland Road). I will say the tempo of these songs feel leisurely, but never slow or dull. I’m glad the band is evolving. Artists need to stretch.
I appreciate the change in mood and the greater intimacy of these songs. I can appreciate Mumford’s voice and their harmonies all the more. The songs still offer fresh lyrics, few cliches and some breathtaking word pictures/stories.”
