    I’ve thought the song writing was fine. The lyrics were really good on songs like Hot Gates, Snake Eyes, Thompkins Square Park, Beats and Cold Arms. Monster might be the best lyrics they have ever written, in my opinion. I loved Wilder Mind. I think it’s their best album. The progression they’ve made has me so excited for future albums.

    Also, Only Love and Ditmas back to back sounds awesome.

    Benj, Hot Gates was an absolute blast when they played it live at the concert I went to. It honestly exceeded my expectations. I’m sure it did very well as an opener.

    Take this liberal CRAP somewhere else. Mumford & Sons is awesome, and always will be.

    Unless I just missed it, I’m surprised they haven’t played Hopeless Wanderer yet. That’s a big favorite.

    I posted my ratings somewhere else on this forum, but a month later, I agree with every single rating you posted except for Broad Shouldered Beasts. I would give that a 4/5.

    The album, to me, was a really huge success. I have enjoyed it and will continue to enjoy it so much.

    I was disappointed that the four bonus songs were live versions of songs on the album. This bothered me because the four live songs on the album were posted on YouTube by the band, so there was nothing special getting those live tracks since they were already posted on YouTube before the album came out. I like the live versions as bonus tracks, but I don’t like every bonus track being a live version that everyone can hear on YouTube. I really wanted the song “Forever” to be a bonus track, since it was apparently the “gateway” drug to the album and just missed being on the 12 track album.

    Definitely a good idea to put I Will Wait into into the mix of Ghosts/Just Smoke. I saw them on June 2nd and thought Just Smoke sounded great live, for whatever it’s worth. All of the songs sound great live, but Just Smoke was a lot better live than it is on the studio album. The live version of Just Smoke sounds more like a rock song, whereas in my opinion it sounds more pop on the album.

    One thing I noticed about the concert was that during all of the new songs the crowd wasn’t really into it. I would say 65-70% of the crowd seemed to know the new music, and the rest didn’t know it at or all just didn’t like it. Believe and obviously The Wolf were known by everyone, and then Snake Eyes was the next most popular. I love the new stuff, but I have to admit the songs from Sigh No More and Babel drove the crowd, although The Wolf is a monster finish to a show. It’s a great closer. It seems like a lot of fans haven’t really given the album much of a chance, but I think when people attend the concert and they hear songs like Only Love, Ditmas, Hot Gates, The Wolf, Believe and Snake Eyes all performed live they will warm up to the album and give it more of a fair chance.

    I think they should bring back Roll Away Your Stone. That’s a great concert song.

    Damn! I went to the June 2nd show at Coney Island and they didn’t play Below My Feet, but they played it the following night. Like you said, it was probably the rain.
