New Tunes: Mumford & Sons - Babel
Thursday, September 27, 2012 4:29 PM
It's no secret I'm a huge fan of Mumford & Sons' first album - Sigh No More. I had it on constant rotation for months, but I at least I am courteous enough to wear headphones (Image X7i black is my current selection, if you're interested in such things). So when it was announced a while back their second album was due out September 25, I jumped on the pre-order bandwagon.
Now that I've had a couple of days to digest it (yes, constant rotation), I can say with much glee - this album is better than the first. Not by much, but better. I can't single out one favorite tune, but some stand-outs include Babel, Ghosts That We Knew, Lover's Eyes, and I Will Wait...but it would be so much easier to just list the entire album.
