Mumford & Sons – I Will Wait Review
Fresh from the success of their impressive debut CD, Mumford & Sons has released another exceptional track. ‘I Will Wait’ is the carrier single of the British folk rock group’s sophomore studio CD, ‘Babel.’ Based on chart performance and record sales, the song can be considered as the band’s most successful one to date. As of January 2013, it has already sold more than a million copies in the US alone.
It generated positive reviews from music critics. Most outstanding is its simple stylistic leap without dubstep beats and additional electric guitars. The musical style has the footprints of the popular songs taken from the band’s debut album.
Its lyrics are simple, echoing a somehow gooey sentiment. It advises listeners to wait for the one they love. Some people may think that the track is a dedication to Mumford & Sons’ loyal followers, who have patiently waited for a good follow up to the hit song ‘Sigh No More.’
But one band member has a different take. Keyboardist Ben Lovett thinks it is the worst song on the album. It is intriguing what he meant by that but media people feel he’s just kidding. In reality, it is among the group’s bests.
