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

OMAM manage to access and paint some pretty unique undertones in this album. An album about nothing that can get you thinking about pretty much everything.

Worst kind of "indie" for lovers of radio hits like pitbull, despacito, enrique iglesias etc.
