“We are more than excited to release Babel into the world. We had started writing new songs well before we got into the studio to record. At first, we peeled ourselves off the road quite reluctantly. We love playing live, obviously, but it had also become an important part of our creative process, we had been writing and rehearsing in soundchecks, and sort of road-testing new songs on our very gracious audiences. But then we fell in love with recording again. The album started to come together, and with the help of Markus Dravs once more (and engineer Robin Baynton), we started to relish the challenge of making this album. As a band, we ve never been closer or more collaborative, all working to our strengths. And so we feel that this record is a natural progression that we re proud of, and we cannot wait to take it out on the road.” -Mumford & Sons
Sigh No More - Following a great in-studio set for The Current, I purchased this album and it has become one of my all time favorites. Rated in many critics and music fans’ top 10 lists from 2011, the ablum has been on the charts since its debut. ”The Cave” rates as my favorite track from the disc. The Current broadcast a phenomenal concert across the world and now, the only think I am waiting for is to see them LIVE myself.
