Babel may be just their second LP, but no introduction is necessary for those rustic London-based troubadours, Mumford & Sons. The music world, Ireland in particular, embraced the indie-folk group with open arms three years ago upon the release of their multi-million selling debut, Sigh No More. Those who enjoyed the banjo-laden rootsy vibe of that chart-topper are likely to be equally charmed by Babel.
In case you may have missed it, the Script are among the "biggest, best-loved bands in the world". As is heavily implied, #3 is the Dublin group's third studio album. The trio's official online biography goes on to declare that #3 in fact celebrates "the power of three" and provides "music for the head, heart and feet". Yes, #3 retains the characteristic chart-friendly sheen of 2010's Science & Faith, and no, it was never going to be a game-changer. By now, we too know the script: these purveyors of R&B-infused pop-rock have surely delivered the latest chapter in the ongoing commercial success they openly court.
