12 Songs, 52 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On their debut, Mumford & Sons showed that acoustic folk could be played as furiously as rock music. Here, they refine that formula. "I Will Wait" is one of the most satisfying anthems of the '10s—a rush of banjos and harmonies that captures the thrill of young love with just three words. Yet some of Babel's best moments are its quietest, such as the minimal "Reminder," which finds Marcus Mumford singing alone with just an acoustic guitar, recalling the plaintive tenderness of Jeff Buckley.

“I Will Wait”

I heard this recently on the radio and didn’t know who performed it. On checking it out, I’ve become a Mumford & Sons fan!

Wow

This album is one of the most creative and the most different things i will ever hear in my life when it comes to music. I have no idea how they wrote half of these songs. The talent in these guys is crazy and they have way more talent then i will have in my life. This album is beautiful and mind blowing. They took all kinds of instruments you dont hear much from in music today and made a loud, emotional, and uplifting peice of work and every song is absolutely amazing. Thank you Mumford and Sons for creating this album and sharing it with the world :)
