Once known for writing banjo-picking, foot-stomping folk-rock anthems, the lads of Mumford & Sons have comfortably settled into their new identity as radio-friendly rockers. The group's latest album, Delta, takes Marcus Mumford's vocal harmonies and places them atop moody electronic compositions that wouldn't sound out of place on a Coldplay record. It's an obvious direction to take for a band that can easily fill arenas, but at least it will be interesting to hear how Mumford & Sons integrates the twangy choruses of smash hits like "I Will Wait For You" and "The Cave" into a set of sleek new tunes.
