Description du produit
2010 release from the West London Indie Rock quartet. Mumford & Sons, have created a gutsy, old-time sound that marries the magic of Crosby, Stills & Nash with the might of Kings of Leon and the harmonies of Fleet Foxes. Sigh No More was recorded at East coast Studios and produced by Markus Dravs who has worked with such superstar acts as Arcade Fire, Bjork and Peter Gabriel. Formed in 2007, the band's goal since day one has been to make music that matters.

But what on earth are the songs about?! Mumford has been feted for his lyrics but I find them frustratingly obscure - an individual phrase or sentiment here and there is poetic and moving, but I don't understand them on the whole. This is where Mumford differ from traditional folk, where the message tends to be simple and emotive. I'm aware of the literary sources (and I've not read Steinbeck) but surely the sense of a song should stand alone and not have to be referenced back to the source to gain an understanding of it?
But I'll forgive them, they're great live, and I sing along with the best of them with heart-felt gusto. There's nothing like swearing along with the band a few hundred people at the top of your voice.
Five stars then? Well, why not, for a debut album it is unbelievably accomplished, it's one of a select set of (4) recent albums I'm playing on rotation and the only one for which I've taken time to learn the lyrics to so I can sing along. They were definitely deserving of the Brit Award, and I'm looking forward to a great gig in Hyde Park, along with Arcade Fire and Beirut - for me, a line-up made in heaven.
Oh and, this cloth bound CD pack is brilliant value, but reading the instructions on the CD the documentary film isn't actually loaded, the CD has to be inserted into a computer to stream the film. I haven't tried to watch it yet having watched it on Youtube but will update this review if this is not the case.

Looking at the bad reviews, I wonder if they have some sort of axe to grind. No doubt there are better exponents of this sort of music out there, but that doesnt make this laot bad. For example, someones going on about hoe good Reg Meuross is in contrast - so i bought that album and although its pleasant (dread word) and competent his voice is nothing special and the songs are very ordinary (I wonder id perhaps the reveiwer is related? - case of sour grapes?)As for them being "Overhyped", well thats what record companies do - I dont thinkk Mumford and Sons picked up a banjo with thoughts of making mega-bucks. Nice to see this music being hyped for a change instead of the usual dross.Of couse some "purists" will disparage any music because it's successful or has even a tinge of rock in it.
I would also agree that some of the songs are a bit samey - same basic sound, same rhythm. And the singers voice is a little grating at times. So they need to broaden their sound, get a little light and shade and variation in there.
And it seems I am not the only one. The jaunty banjo led uptempo modern day and, dare I say it, folky, sound seems to have become almost ubiquitous, heard everytime I turn on the radio or TV, and even in the cinema.
This is a record jam packed with joyous music. Even when singing about themes of loss and darkness, the music seems to almost celebrate life. It's a real feel good toe tapper that deserves every bit of its recent success. My only quibble is that a follow up album from this talented bunch seems somewhat overdue!
Also - at the risk of sounding like an old man - the swearing seems a little unnecessary. Would otherwise be a decent album to play in the background - possibly with family - yet this somewhat ruins it. There's no need, Mr. Mumford.
