Wilder Mind – Mumford & Sons
Condition: Brand New
With their new studio album "Wilder Mind" Mumford & Sons are breaking new ground. This makes seasoned fans of their previous folk sound sceptical and on the internet there are already shouts that the banjos should be taken out of the closet again. But Mumford & Sons regard their third studio album as a natural development, because one thing they certainly didn't want: to repeat themselves.
So with "Wilder Mind" Mumford & Sons become 'electric', turning from handmade folk rock to mainstream and showing their new music style in the new outfit of the band members. Marcus Mumford has already explained that they have seen a lot of the world through the tours in the last years and that they have changed that.
Beyond the new visual and musical impression, the pre-reviews for the new album "Wilder Mind" are split. From 'haunting' and 'bittersweet' to 'smoothed out' and 'shallow' very different words have been found for the new orientation of Mumford & Sons. As a fan, there is only one thing left to do: Everyone has to form his own opinion.
After all, the consistency with which Mumford & Sons themselves have also taken on the new sound of "Wilder Mind" is very courageous. With the support of producer James Ford, they have consciously bid farewell to their unique style and are now moving into a mainstream context in which others have long been established. Mumford & Sons rock. Now you can decide if you want to rock with us.
