For several weeks now.. I've been devouring Mumford & Sons.. I even think I picked up an English accent. (Which for the record sounds a bit Aussie)...
I've heard of them here and there.. and to be quite honest when I first heard it, it did nothing for me. But then a friend plastered it all over her facebook and I thought to myself (Self, let's give it a try).
I admit, it took a while for me to get used to it. (I mean I just got off a Lady Antebellum kick, which btw, I never blogged about their amazing concert.. note to self, that's next). And much like anything that I get all "passionate" about.. I literally immerse myself in the lyrics, the beat, the chorus line, the accents... And let me tell you, I'm completely fixated!
So, obviously.. their albums (Babel and Sigh No More) has been on repeat throughout the house, car, work, bike rides etc. My kids and hubby, upon hearing for the first time gave me a "are you crazy" look. But now, much like our military life.. we adapt. So when I hit play, they actually sing along. My son will always think of Shrek when he hears them. But for the most part, we get to dancing around the house.
Okay.. you didn't think I wouuld leave this post without talking about my favorite tracks..
Honestly, it is ALL good! And I'm usually not a "let's buy an entire album" kind of person. But every-single-song gets my heart pumping and sets my soul on fire.
The first song that captivated me was, Not With Haste.
It's the first few lines of this song that got me...
Your eyes they tie me down so hard
I'll never learn to put up a guard
So keep my love, my candle bright
Learn me hard, oh learn me right
I lit-er-a-ly love that last line.. Learn me hard, oh learn me right.
(That's right you are getting the full break down of my reviews.. that's just the way I am.. "I am what I am..")
Lover's Eyes, "But do not ask the price I pay, I must live with my quiet rage.."
The quick beat of I Will Wait For You.
Lover of the Light, " But love the one you hold, And I'll be your gold To have and to hold A lover of the light."
Right now, I am completely absorbed myself in "Awake My Soul"..
Okay, I really should stop babeling, I mean blabbing... I've always been a lover of all kinds of music. Just another way to express myself and another way to "feel". I just added watching them in concert on this bucket list of mine.
