A very interesting listen

Any additional comments?

I discovered Mumford and Sons from one record: I Will Wait and was immediately hooked by their energy and originality, so when I saw this book I couldn't wait to listen and I certainly wasn't disappointed.

For anyone who wants a clearer understanding of the lyrics as well as the background history to the group and the individuals within the group, then this is a great listen. I have listened to it once through in its entirety, but shall be listening to it again, at a much slower pace, as I work my way through the album.

Mumford & Sons Sigh No More fan treat

What made the experience of listening to Music Magnified: Mumford and Sons - Sigh No More the most enjoyable?

The breakdown starting with brief biographies of the band members. This was followed by historical info regarding the twelve songs that comprise the album, a look back at awards and nominations and finally a one on one interview with the author. Chris Brinkley is a radio announcer with keen perception of the music scene.

What other book might you compare Music Magnified: Mumford and Sons - Sigh No More to and why?

I understand this may be the first in a series on musical artists and albums. I currently can't compare with any other book or audio book.

Which scene was your favorite?

More of a complete picture of Mumford & Sons "Sigh No More". than a "scene".I'm a fan too, which initially attracted me to the brief work.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's an hour and two minutes long, and about a subject of interest, so, Yes, not only wanted to but did listen all in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I'd like to see the series continue.

Thanks for the opportunity to listen to and review this interesting audio book.
