The babel-ing sons and Mumford, of course

The Englanders who sing with an American accent did not surprise anyone when they last year released a unique folk music album with completely and utterly nonsensical lyrics, riddled with cliché after cliché. For some reason the lyrics pierce through as nonsense even more than the best-skilled 21st century rapper, but still, a good track is the Holland Road. The strength of the track Hopeless Wanderer is that it has a mind-blowing banjo-climax that can make anyone forget the emergency-rhyming of Marcus. How about The Boxer with artsy Paul Simon, sounds great. Title track Babel is also noteworthy. And, don't miss Broken Crown if all else has failed you. And, again, try to ignore the lyrics and see that you will like it.
