Product Description

2012 release from the Icelandic outfit formed by singer/guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir. Their rapid rise transpired in just one year. Nanna, who began as the acoustic act Songbird, recruited extra hands to bolster her sound for a solo show. She liked how her vocals commingled with guitarist/vocalist Ragnar "Raggi" Þórhallsson's, so they started writing songs together and in 2010 morphed into Of Monsters And Men. As victors of 2010's Músíktilraunir, the new group earned a slot on the influential Iceland Airwaves festival later that year, followed by Seattle's radio station KEXP posting "Little Talks" from a Living Room Session filmed there, setting the telltale ripple effect in motion. Though their reach is growing broader, the group's appeal has remained distinct: their music is as fantastical as it is pretty.

Very good first album. The animal mythology and stadium anthem like endings and quiet beginnings are unusually well constructed and well thought out, quiet whispery vocals are excellent and sometimes very dark.

Although I have an Itunes account already I wanted this CD for my music collection. I wanted something tangible with artwork and this original CD is a must have. There is not one song I do not like on this album. For me every single song is really good. The entire album is very upbeat and happy. It's an album that I know I'll never tire of hearing.

The first time I heard the song Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men, I knew I had to buy their album. The album is a lot of fun and stayed in constant rotation for a good long time after I purchased it. The song Dirty Paws quickly surpassed Little Talks as my favourite, but the entire album is full of great songs.

Hi everyone,
This CD is an excellent one. Love all the tracks and love the combination of vocals. So wonderful. However, don't expect the rest of the CD to be as upbeat as their first single, "Little Talks", because it's not. But it is still lovely!
Enjoy!

Terrific band from Iceland, a mix of modern rock and Nordic traditions. The two main singers are very distinctive and the song choices reflect a maturity in songwriting, well beyond their years.

I make all my friends listen to it. It was delivered promptly by Amazon, within 3 days of ordering. Price was great. Very happy with this album. Can't wait for their next!! If you've never heard of OMAM; youtube them. They have some very interesting videos. My fav songs on the album 'King and Lionheart' 'Mountain Sound' and 'Little Talks'

Wow. I kinda liked their songs on the radio, and I hemmed and hawed about buying it, finaly I just went for it. I am a hard rock fan, and I judge stuff by, "would I sit on my deck, drinking a beer, on a sunny day, and enjoy listening to this?" YUP. One song after the other. Catchy, intelligent, and well expressed. I really do kind of love it.

I couldn't wait to hear this after hearing the song they have on the Mitty soundtrack.
No disappointments there!
This has quickly become my new favorite CD!
I play it all day on my computer system and the CD has not left the car since it's been put in the player.
Now I can't wait to hear their next CD. :)

It's a great album. If you like their hit single, then you'll likely enjoy the rest of the album. Great stuff. Just an FYI, the disc only comes in a cardboard sleeve, not a plastic case, if that makes a difference to anyone.
