Album Review

Looking to move into the pantheon of modern arena rock bands like U2 and Kings of Leon, Nashville alt-rockers Mona make a renewed bid for glory on their sophomore album, Torches & Pitchforks. A more midtempo affair than their debut effort, the album is full of big, hooky choruses and heartfelt anthems, so while the pace may have changed, the band's intentions seem clearer than ever. The biggest change, though, is the production. Tweaked with more reverb and an all-around bigger sound, the album doesn't just feel like songs made to be played in front of a massive crowd. With its added reverb and muted but bass-heavy sound, the album sounds more like a live album than a studio session, putting listeners right there in the crowd while giving the band all the control of a studio recording. While the album certainly isn't breaking any new ground, Torches & Pitchforks does a pretty good job of scooping listeners up and taking them on a quick emotional ride.

Some 'good old' new

What a breath of fresh air. I didn't know this was what was missing from my catalog until I found it. These guys found where rock and roll is hiding. It's somehow both serious and fun. Amazing vocals. Inspired music. If they had the right manager, everyone would know about Mona. Somehow they seem to effortlessly do what kings of Leon seems to try so hard to accomplish, make incredibly talented, creative music that is both danceable and rocks. The strange part is how accessible they are. I am a tall guy with no ability to dance and Mona makes me want to dance like nobodies watching, even if they are. Keep it up guys. The world is waiting.

So talented and unique

This is an amazing album by an amazing band. I will continue to be a fan for life.

Mona never goes wrong

I heart this album already!
