No doubt I am late to the game on this, but I have been LOVING Mumford & Sons new album Sigh No More. Little Lion Man has been getting some play time on the radio and caught my ear. How can you not like a song with a lyric like this…
learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck
I don’t even know how you can bite your own neck, but it’s genius line all the same. Maybe I am just drawn to songs with lyrics that admit you’ve f’ked things up. Like it or not, it is a powerful word that sometimes just can’t be replaced in order to get your passion across.
Roll Away Your Stone is all about the guitar for me, the audio on this video version hardly does it justice. Wow, powerful stuff! The lyrics are great too…
You told me that I would find a home
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal
And all the while my character it steals
The Cave, Dust Bowl Dance, and of course the title song Sigh No More are all beautifully crafted songs.
If I was listening to this back in the day, the tape would be unraveling everywhere from rewinding it so much. Check it out, it is a great album.
