My only answer is that Mumford fans don't steal music

By and large, fans of "pop" music are less apt to download music and buy it instead compared to "indie-minded" listeners/fans. Which, if you think about it, is completely backwards and ironic.

Yes. Hype around it is huge.Every Hip Hop head on the planet will be buying or streaming it. Will be the biggest Hip Hop major label debut since Get Rich Or Die Tryin.
Taylor Swift's album will outsell both of these but i think Kendrick's sales will suprise alot of people.
we'll see on the 29th though.

LOL I like where your head's at because I love Kendrick, but you're just wrong.

Not as crazy of a debut as I heard it would be, but still huge. Good for them, even though I don't care for them in the slightest.

Also, lol at people being glad a "band" topped the charts. Aren't we over that nonsense yet?

I'm totally okay with this. At least they actually play their instruments and write their own songs, plus the fact that Babel is actually quite good. Go Mumford.

In my opinion, Babel is a much more boring version of Sigh No More The songs seem to lack the personality, diversity, and lyrical heart that I like Mumford for.

Haven't you Heard "The Cave" or "Little Lion Man"? :) those were really popular with the previous album...

Nope. Never. I've heard of Little Lion Man but I've never had any desire to listen to this band. Still don't.

It's so fucking exciting to see a BAND doing this well. Not to mention: the Top 3 this week were all bands.
Agreed. Though I feel the new album is a bit of a let down because its so similar to their last, I can't believe an actual band does this well anymore. Kind of sad really.

I just think it's crazy because it can imply that musical acts who aren't "bands" playing "real instruments" are less respectable.

I mean, the core sentiment isn't bad. Celebrating that a style you prefer is successful? That's natural, and cool. I see people make the leap to not respecting hip hop, pop, electronic music, etc., and that's what I consider nonsense.
