if Interpol was a slow-burning sneaky kind of romance that kind of creeps under your radar before it's too late to do anything about it, Mumford & Sons was a love-at-first-sight in-your-face kind of thing. an attack on the senses. banjos, folkiness, Christ-freak undertones, warts and all. but also pure, beautiful, melancholic, overwhelming, unassuming, love.

Rate yourself and rake yourself,
Take all the courage you have left
Wasted on fixing all the problems
That you made in your own head
