EDITORS’ NOTES

In 2011, when Of Monsters and Men unleashed “Little Talks,” their trumpet-blasted, stomping first single, they captured the tender hearts of dramatic indie-rock lovers the world over. My Head Is An Animal, their debut, is woven with similar heavy doses of folk mixed with heaps of electrifying grandeur, earning them comparisons to Arcade Fire. The delicate builds and explosive crescendos of “Dirty Paws” and the youthful, rousing nostalgia of “Lakehouse” testify to their ability to build towering musical moments.

Of Monsters and Men My Head is an Animal

To the idiots saying they ripped the name off another band, Of Mice and Men was a book first so go get your GED before you give a band a one star review, pretty decent album though if you're into indie rock.

home again?

A fine album indeed; musically interesting, distinctive vocals and engaging subject matter. And very catchy melodies. The "magical" video is clealry inspired by early Sugar Cube videos. But am I the only one here who thinks they sound more like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros than Mumford and Sons (case in point: compare "Little Talks" to "Home")?

If you like Mumford and Sons, this is right up your ally

Amazing. Many call these guys the Icelandic Mumford and Sons, but I think the guy/girl duet raises the bar. I have a new favorite album. So different and fascinating, I love it!
