Default Mumford & Sons - Wilder Mind


Quote:
This “Wilder Mind” album was released while I was in Des Moines, Iowa, and sort of has given me the option to type about albums in the better times in life rather than typing about albums in the darker times in life. The cover art for this album is the ultra-awesome place to sit and vibe. Parks that have benches overlooking parts of the city are designed by awesome people. “Only Love” and “The Wolf” stand out as probably the best songs. The album does have a sound similar to their other albums but this one seems a bit faster tempo. Mumford & Sons have an awesome sound that has a folk rock vibe but still has some harder drumbeats. The place we stayed at when I first heard of this band was a lake house on lake Michigan and my grandmother rented the place for us to stay there. I got the folk-rock vibes then but with this album it’s more drum sounding to where someone could drum to the songs more. This album has been with me more than I thought also, and I am choosing to type about albums that brought me happiness rather than albums. Mumford and Sons is totally folk rock, but this album seemed more rockstar type than other albums with the first single being “The Wolf”, having a fast drum tempo.

This is the band’s 3rd studio album and was released in 2015 and I have listened to “Believe” so many times because its placement on a Spotify playlist of mine. This album was sort of a different sound into rock music also, not as folk sounding and more alternative rock sounding. “Ditmas” was released as a 3rd single, “Tompkins Square Park” a 4th single and “Just Smoke” as a 5th single and I am wondering where these singles are getting played. The days of buying singles as CDs are over because no one has Sony Walkman disc players anymore and just stream music through Apple of Spotify.

It seems like a nice place to sit and vibe with someone for a while, the place in this cover art. It’s such a dramatic change from “Believe” then to the song “The wolf” with more of hard drum patterns. This album has more “rock n roll” sounds than other previous albums from the band. The and preformed “The Wolf” off this album on SNL in 2015.
7 Song Album:
  • The Wolf
  • Tompkins Square Park
  • Believe
  • Just Smoke
  • Only Love
  • Monster
  • Wilder Mind

Deep Purple taught me that seven songs was the perfect length.
