Ever since my dad introduced me to Mumford & Sons, a folk-rock band from London, I have been completely engrossed in their music. For years, their songs such as “Little Lion Man,” and “Gave You All” have been my go-to music regardless of my mood. The thing I love about Mumford, and the thing that I cannot completely wrap my mind around, is that I can never get sick of them. I do not know what it is; maybe it is the calming lyrics or the unique, upbeat banjo.
When I heard they were coming out with a new album, I was thrilled. “Babel,” which was released on Sept. 24, sold 600,000 copies during its debut sales week in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan.
“Babel” is filled with passion and vivid sound, showing Mumford & Sons’ unique and powerful talent, and proving how impactful music can be. Every track, whether you know the lyrics or not, is uplifting and inspirational.
I was also thrilled to read on billboard.com that Mumford is excited and ready to start working on their next album, which I can only imagine will be a knockout.
“Babel” is available on iTunes for $14.99 and Amazon for $12.99. You will definitely get your money’s worth and enjoy every bit of the album.
