Sigh No More is the debut album from the band Mumford and Sons. It was released on February 16, 2011 in the United Sates and on October 9, 2009 in the UK. Mumford Sons are an indie rock band from London. They had a performance at the grammies this year. The album has received positive reviews from almost everyone and has been successful in both the United States and the UK. It has won several awards. I enjoyed this album from the beginning of the first song to the last seconds of the last song. I usually listen to much heavier genres of music but I also am very interested in bands like Mumford and Sons. This certainly is great album and I highly recommend that everyone go buy it.

Attack of the Wolf King is the name of the fifth and final studio album written by the band Haste the Day. The new album features two new guitar players and a new drummer, leaving the bass player the only original member. I love the line up changes and I think that this is the band's best album yet. I love every song from start to finish. The three new members brought their A game and definatly made this album the best that it could be. Lots of fans and critics say that the band should have changed their name due to the drastic lineup changes. I strongly disagree. This is definatly the band's most talented lineup and most mature record. I have been a fan of Haste the Day since I first saw them in concert. I am sad that the band will be no more. The band states that there are many reasons for calling it quits but they do not list any one reason. I am thankful for all the things they did as a band. After ten years and five albums Haste the Day will be no more.

Ø (Disambiguation) Underoath's much awaited seventh studio album was released on November 9, 2010. All eyes were on Underoath as they prepared to enter the studio without founding member, drummer, vocalist, Aaron Gillespie. Everyone was interested in how the band would deal with Aaron's departure. He was a key member in the band not only as a drummer but Aaron provided most of the clean vocals for the band. The pressure was on new drummer Daniel Davison formerly of Norma Jean and lead vocalist Spencer Chamberlain. Daniel Davison turned out to be a great fit and the album turned out to be one of their best albums to date. The album certainly is different then past albums but sometimes that is a good thing. Spencer Chamberlains performance on the record should also be mentioned. Taking over clean vocals and screamed vocals Chamberlain delivered. I thoroughly enjoyed the new record. I'm sure some fans were disappointed with the lineup change. I personally believe it was handled nicely and made for a good record. Everything sounds great and I can't wait to hear more from the new lineup.

On November 23, 2010 the band The Chariot released their fourth studio album titled Long Live. I picked up this album the day that it was released. The Chariot is one of my favorite bands. I have have seen them preform on numerous occasions at numerous venues. I was surely not disappointed after I gave the album a thorough listening to. This is definatly a great album. This sort of music is certainly an Acquired taste. I recommend that you give it a listen and see how you feel about it. I also suggest watching a few live videos of the band. The band's live show is the biggest reason why I love them. They bring their live feel to their albums the best that they can. That is why they are so different and that is why they are so good.
