Album Review

English folk outfit Mumford & Sons' full-length debut owes more than a cursory nod to bands like the Waterboys, the Pogues, and the Men They Couldn’t Hang. The group’s heady blend of biblical imagery, pastoral introspection, and raucous, pub-soaked heartache may be earnest to a fault, but when the wildly imperfect Sigh No More is firing on all cylinders, as is the case with stand-out cuts like "The Cave," "Winter Winds," and "Little Lion Man," it’s hard not to get swept up in the rapture. Like their London underground folk scene contemporaries Noah & the Whale, Johnny Flynn, and Laura Marling, Mumford & Sons' take on British folk is far from traditional. There’s a deep vein of 21st century Americana that runs through the album, suggesting a healthy diet of Fleet Foxes, Arcade Fire, Sufjan Stevens, Blitzen Trapper, and Marah. That melding of styles, along with some solid knob-twiddling from Arcade Fire/Coldplay producer Markus Dravs, helps to keep the record from completely sinking into the quicksand of its myriad slow numbers — tracks like "I Gave You All," "Thistle & Weeds," and "After the Storm" are pretty and plain enough, but they neuter a band this spirited. Sigh No More is an impressive debut, but one that impresses more for its promise for the future than its wildly inconsistent place in the present. [A Deluxe Edition of Sigh No More was released in December 2010, and featured the original album, a second disc of 12 live recordings, and a DVD that included all three installments of the documentary "Gentlemen of the Road."]

Customer Reviews

Favourite album

This is my favourite album of all time! Such a fresh sound and amazing lyrics makes this album an absolute classic! A mix of loud and fast tracks such as Dustbowl Dance and Little Lion Man with soft, slower songs such as After the Storm and Timshel provides a perfect balance. Whats more, the music sounds real and not overly done with computers! I'm one of the biggest fans (I know songs by them that aren't on this album, even some of their covers!)

Don't hesitate, buy it! It's one of those albums you'll never stop listening to and you'll never get bored of any of the songs on this album. An absolute masterpiece by an amazing band. 10/10!

Awesome album

This album is truly one of the best albums by one of the best bands I have ever heard. The lyrics are sincere and they actually mean something. As for the music, it is real and this makes you want to listen to it more. Some great songs help make this album such as the cave and winter winds. Most of the songs help you just forget about everything and enter a place of peace. I recommend this album to everyone as it is a must have. Enjoy!

Very Impressive

'Sigh No More' is an incredible album, and one of my favourites. It's uplifting, musically clever, and the lyrics are sincere. It's hard to believe that it's a debut album really. Perhaps the greatest thing about this album is that it makes folk music more accessible in a way, but without turning it into empty pop or mainstream drivel. Don't listen the iTunes reviewer here, there is nothing plain or inconsistent about this album.
