2011 Favorite Albums / 11. Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More

Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More

Music Math: Peter Gabriel + the soundtrack to O Brother Where Art Thou?

Best Tracks: “The Cave,” “Little Lion Man,” “Winter Winds”

Representative Lyrics: “I will hold on hope / and I will let you choke / on the noose around your neck”

Notes: I love this quirky little album of homages to bluegrass music. Plucky banjos, slappy basses, and strummy guitars dominate along with beautiful harmonies in the vocals.

Beau’s Critique: “I don’t like this and he’s ugly. I feel like I’m in Ireland or something.”
