My Head is an Animal is a highly impressive debut that’s full of emotional lyrics, lush, diverse instrumentation, and a powerful and dynamic male/female vocals.

My Head Is An Animal deserves the attention it is getting, because it is a well-crafted, spirited debut album with soaring choruses and delicious harmonies.

Even with a few skipable tracks, though, Of Monsters and Men bring an Icelandic exoticism and captivating energy to U.S. audiences on My Head is an Animal.

The thing that's most impressive about the album is that there's not even a trace of filler

This album runs the same line as an album released just a day before it in The Lumineers' self-titled- songs that sound good around the campfire but just about bad everywhere else. Put a choir on the melody and chant some "heys" and "ohs" on the 4th beat and we'll call it a day!
