Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
The Lumineers, a folk-rock trio out of Denver, Colorado, have a pretty interesting sound, an Americana mesh of folk, rock, and gospel that is similar in tone to the Waterboys, say, or an alt-folk version of Bob Dylan circa Desire, thanks in no small part to Neyla Pekarek's inventive cello. And there are some very good tracks on this debut album, including the chamber honky tonk of "Dead Sea," the delightfully goofy but then ultimately sad and elegant "Submarines," and "Stubborn Love," which manages to be bright and chiming while also being haunting and mournful. Not everything here clicks together at that level, but each track is inventive, and when the songwriting and ...

    Originally posted at Nose in a Book.

    I know, I'm back with another CD review that isn't the new Mumford and Sons, miracles happen! This album, by the Lumineers, is in my top three albums of the year (the other two being this one and this one.) I am almost too much in love with this album and this band. I can read to this album, I can do homework to this album, I can bawl my eyes out to this album, all of which is a good sign.

    I have that addicting type of personality. If I read one book in a series, I have to read the whole series. If I fall in love with an author, I must read their complete collection. I told you, addicting personality. I wish I was joking when I say that for the last two years my favorite song has been "Little Lion Man" by Mumford and Sons. No, it has never wavered. That has been my favorite song to the point of being a joke among by friends including Tina and Lauren. But this album, is giving Mumford and Sons and "Little Lion Man" a run for their money.

    This album is full of slow songs, but full of heart. A whole lot of heart. The band is a trio who you can tell love what they do. There isn't a single song on this album that I have a need to skip. Which is hard for me because as much as I have an addicting personality I also have this need to skip through CDs. One of my top three CDs of 2012, I skip through. I know, the shock!

    Led by Wesley Schultz on guitar and lead vocals, the Lumineers album make it feel like they are able to read your soul and sing straight to it. Wesley is backed by Jeremiah Fraites on percussion, drums, and the like and Neyla Pekarek on cello. But this band isn't Wesley's show with two back up artists, this is a true trio. They all get along, they all have fun with each other and one can hear that on the album. It doesn't matter if it is a slower song like "Charlie Boy" or a upbeat happy song like "Ho Hey" you can feel that they love singing and playing together, which makes the album even better to listen to. Plus, I had a chance to meet them recently and they all three are super nice and excited people, which to me is important, because if an artist is mean in an interview or to a fan it is harder for me to really enjoy their music. But don't get me wrong, if they were horrible, I'd still be addicted to this album.

    I'm thrilled that this album is one of my top three of the year. And no, I won't tell you the order. No matter how often you ask. But really, you should give them a shot, you know how hard it is for me to recommend music. That's more panic inducing to me then recommending books. You can stop laughing now.

    I should have previewed  more tracks before buying. It's pretty much downhill after "Ho Hey".

    Received this album as as birthday gift from relatives in Colora

    Received this album as as birthday gift from relatives in Colorado who are very familiar with the music.  I was very impressed and listen to all the songs in my car when commuting.
