Depending on the day, I would rank Calvary Scars II / Aux. Out and Never Stops in there somewhere. So far the only song from Monomania that seems like it might climb into these ranks is Neon Junkyard.
Especially if it is a concept album about some kind of theme park; if it is about being lost at sea, it’s only moderately terrible.
Definitely agree with the “music isn’t very good” idea, the vocals in particular have always been the biggest problem for me with all these bands (Mumford, KoL, DMB and, although they/he is not as popular, TMoE), kind of a constipated style of delivery with a fake gruffness. I wouldn’t say I am the most discerning of listeners as far as lyrics or melody though, because I actually kind of liked both Mumford and Tallest Man on Earth albums in all parts without the bleating.
I’m older than dirt
looking forward to Train and Kings of Leon double takes
