I rarely bother to log on just to give a bad rating, better to just hit the mute button for a few minutes, and I'm not sure if I've *ever* made a negative comment, but this band didn't take long to get on my "I just don't like 'em anymore and I'm not sure why" list. The chanting delivery maybe?

There are a lot of bands over the years that were comprised of talented musicians who;s music sold really well. Journey comes to mind for some reason. As some of RP's listeners in the UK have pointed out, Mumford is a collection of public school boys masquerading as working class Joes. If you like them, great for you. But if you sense in their music something put on, or not quite sincere as I do, it's hard to accept the shrill prattling of their singer, or the incessant and monotonous repetition of their banjo.

They had identical audiences at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, is it possible...?

They don't sound the same to me at all except they are both good at folk-type music.

I bought this CD..did not think much of it at first, but that has changed.  Well written lyrics and harmonies throughout. If one likes a song immediately, one will usually tire of it just as fast. I hated coffee at first taste..lovin it now.  Music, like fine food and drink, is an acquired taste {#Cheers}

Fleet Foxes by the numbers. Not much to dislike apart from the fact that it's soulless.

All their songs have the same recipe. guy sings, no instruments, intro banjo, bring the noise with the banjo, intro all other instruments, everyone sing and play instruments, stop, silence, repeat.

They are pretty big on this side of the pond indeed... Two weeks ago at a pretty big festival here in the Netherlands; Lowlands (70.000 or so). They were favorite, also sold the most cd's there...
