    The album is a thrill, delivering unexpected updates on its vintage influences.
  2. However much you think it a tired formula, this lot shake it awake with their relentless charm.

    Morrison's voice catapults these songs into the ether and should take his band a long way.

    You don't need an encyclopaedic knowledge of LA-based folk-rock to enjoy the rough-hewn vocals and gnarled, grainy guitar play of these London-based chums-of-Mumford. [Jun 2013, p.107]
  5. Jun 21, 2013
    Unoriginal, yes, but while some elements can verge on sounding a bit tired in places, the notable musical lineage it follows gives The Mountain Moves the potential to be as timeless as it is conventional.

    Treetop Flyers have perhaps wisely chosen to avoid Mumfords' bombastic path for an altogether sunnier route. [Jun 2013, p.88]

    While The Mountain Moves feels a little too familiar at times, that makes it an album option to crank up on your next road trip after you get sick of listening to The Eagles.
