"Can they really follow Sigh No More?" That was the question that every person who loved Mumford & Sons' début album wanted answered. My answer is a resounding yes; Babel is nothing less than brilliant. Musically, there is no departure at all. The sound is very similar to their first album, but the songs are different enough to feel like a brand new collection of compositions, the vocal delivery is so incredibly passionate, the music so powerful and driving, with so many different dynamics being manipulated to fantastic effect, it feels every bit the equal to its predecessor. This is one of those albums that sounds better and better with every listen and every track on this album has something special to offer. If I had to pick one track as a favourite, it would be "Lover Of The Light", which is absolutely superb, but right behind it, vying for attention, are at least half a dozen of the other tracks. "Holland Road", for example, is sensational, as is "I Will Wait". The highlights are numerous and joyous and I can't recommend this album highly enough, especially to those who loved their excellent first release. The difficult second album has been tackled and it's a triumph - the third may be a little more tricky as I'm not sure another album sounding exactly the same will satisfy the fan base.

It's odd how this band stirs up such strange emotions. I have a friend who gets animated at the mere mention of M&S (such an unfortunate acronym!), his irritation with their music inexplicably extreme in my view. I lent Babel to another friend who sent it straight back saying we clearly had different musical tastes. And yet despite these friendly opinions I just can't help liking Babel, and the more I play it the more I like it. So what do I like about Babel - I think it's a combination of the melancholic lyrics, great musicianship and quality acoustic delivery. Ghosts that we Know is my favourite by a whisker. This album is clearly not for everyone but it does the job for me (PS if you like it as much as I do then try the Band from Rockall, you won't be disappointed)

These are the basic questions:

1. Is it as Good As Sigh No More?
No, but it's still very good. It's very hard to follow an album like that and plenty of bands have released much worse 2nd albums.

2. I liked Sigh No More, should I buy this?
If you liked all of Sigh No More then yes, buy it immediately. If you only liked a couple of tracks then maybe have a listen to the new stuff on line before deciding to take the plunge.

3. Is it a change of style?
No, it's more of the same but it's a great style! However, this could be the reason that the album doesn't stand out as much as Sigh No More.

5. What's my favourite track?
Hopeless Wanderer, but I seem to be in a minority. Most reviewers prefer I Will Wait & Lover of the Light.

4. Am I a fan boy? No, I just like what I like.

I bought this album as a present for my dad. Thought I would try it first before giving it to him. Have enjoyed it so much have had to get another copy to give to my dad instead!

I'm really enjoying this, I just wish they'd recorded 'Home' on it too. It's definitely got the same vibe as Sigh No More...so if you like that, you should like this.
