The album "Babel" makes me a bigger fan of folk rock music. The voice of Marcus Mumford makes my heart soar on the title track. "Ghosts That We Knew" is a slower tempo track. Every chord of Marcus Mumford's guitar is beautiful. This song is very soothing and reflective to me."The Boxer" is one of my favorite songs of all time. I have never heard this song with a banjo accompaniment. The banjo playing by Country Winston Marshall makes this song special for me. "I Will Wait" is a track where all four musicians perform in perfect unison. Ted Dvane plays the upright bass. Ben Lovett brings his energy on the keyboards on this song. This is an upbeat love song. "Holland Road" is a track that features the mandolin. This instrument makes a goregous sound. It gives this song a romantic tone that I love. "Not With Haste" is a song that I originally heard on the the soundtrack for the animated movie Brave. It is listed under the song title "Learn Me Right". This song fills my heart with a sense of hope. I don't care what title this song is listed as. It is simply superb. "Hopeless Wanderer" is a song that starts off slow, but it picks up in the middle. I really love the musical arrangement on this track. "For Those Below" is a pretty song with fiddle playing. This song has a spiritual theme in the lyrics that I love. The music of Mumford and Sons gives me a new appreciation for the folk rock music genre.
