Have to agree. And I really wanted to like M&S more (and bought the first CD). Just wasn't that impressed with seeing live footage of them. They came to Bristol, TN/VA on the "Gentlemen" tour, but it honestly seemed that so many fans (who came from as far away as Vermont) were more intrigued by wearing the Top Hats and creating a sort of Deadhead vibe than by the actual music. Never saw them live so hard to judge.

OCMS seems much looser and more spontaneous. As with all music, it's a matter of taste (duh).

They headlined one night at Lollapalooza, and the Tribune said that half the audience left in the middle of the set.

Re: Mumford & Sons

I love how they did this parody as their actual video for the new single.

It's true. I've never seen that side of the field as crowded as it was that day between The Lumineers and Mumford playing. There was no way I was sticking around for that. I left after seeing The National, who was incredible.But I know people who stayed and said half of the people were either talking or cleared out after hearing singles.

Re: Mumford & Sons

So, not only did I start a thread 5 years ago praising Mumford & Sons, but I actually compared them favorably to The Pogues? Jesus. Sorry, everyone.

Re: Mumford & Sons

Generic Coldplay influenced pop. Hard to believe they thought their success was based on something other than the British Americana gimmick.

Exactly what came to my mind upon hearing that. Unfortunately.

Re: Mumford & Sons

That's the biggest change in direction I've ever heard in a band.

I don't understand the hate either. I can't imagine how sophisticated anyone here's music stylings could possibly be. You're posting on an almost defunct website for DVD connoisseurs for god's sake.

Re: Mumford & Sons

The change in sound is understandable considering how many other bands/artists have copied it since thier intiall success. You can't go 10 minutes of listening to radio these days without hearing it. To put out a record now in that same style would be redundant, as it's already getting pretty tiresome.

As for Mumford's new album, it kind of reminds me when Kings Of Leon similarly changed thier sound on thier fourth album, Only By Night. Same more commercial, arena rock styled sound, in the vein of U2 and Coldplay. The songs are decent enough, but once you've taken out the folkier aspect of the first two albums, there's really nothing much to set them apart from the previously mentioned bands.

Re: Mumford & Sons

Listening to the album via Amazon Prime. I dig it. Some songs are alittle too slow for my tastes, but most songs have been solid.

Re: Mumford & Sons

I was a big fan of their first two albums but this album smacks of watering down their music for long-term mainstream acceptability. I dropped Coldplay as one of my favorite bands along the way when they decided to adopt that approach.

Re: Mumford & Sons

A great chorus made for pop anthem material. However, the verses really don't flow that well for me.
