UK, 2012, indie folk / folk pop

Mumford & SonsBabel: I think I like this one slightly more than their debut, especially because of songs like “Ghosts That We Knew” and “Not With Haste”. When I heard the album closer, my wife and I just looked at each other astounded.

So as we walked through fields of green
Was the fairest sun I’d ever seen

And I was broke, I was on my knees
And you said yes as I said please

This was us. 21 years old, between our junior and senior years of university, and me asking her to marry me. Both of us broke students. There’s so much more to say about this album (about how love heals), but nobody seems to care.

One thought on “

  1. You are right. No one cares. Which is a pity because this album is full of deep topics worthy of discussion. Not many of the albums in your collection make me take stock of my character, but this one does.
