My Head Is An Animal [Pink 2xLP]
Of Monsters and Men have little to prove with the release of their album. Though they may not be out to prove much, they certainly do.
Part of Of Monsters and Men’s appeal is in the back ‘n’ forth serenading from the singers, who belt out with such optimism and pure talent that, at times, the record feels like a string of cheesy duets from decades past. But the forced Broadway-esque spontaneity is fine. The kitsch appeal of a good singsong endures to this day, and there’s a reassuring warmth emanating from the synchronised harmonies.
