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.

I saw Mona as an opening band last year and I was blown away, they sounded great live. Well done guys...

With a bold, bombastic sound that seemingly took its cues from U2 and Kings of Leon, Mona began making waves in 2010. The band had formed several years prior in Dayton, Ohio, where it performed for three years before moving to Nashville in 2007. Despite receiving attention from several record executives -- including Rick Rubin, who flew the band to L.A. two months into its Nashville residency to play a show at the Roxie -- Mona remained independent. The group eventually partnered with former Suede...
