CD Review: Mumford and Sons – Babel

Have your say

MUMFORD & Sons get a lot of stick, much of it apparently centred around them being a bit posh, wearing waistcoats and having a generally inauthentic image.

Which is a shame. There are better reasons to criticise than that: namely that most of their songs sound the same.

Babel is full of galloping accordion and ever louder banjo and faster fiddle, which only serve to lessen the impact of otherwise fine tracks like Whispers in the Dark and Lovers Eyes.
