It took four years for The Lumineers to follow up their platinum-plus, multi-Grammy-nominated, self-titled debut which spent 46 weeks on the Billboard 200 and peaked at #2 -- but Cleopatra is well worth the wait. After exploding onto the scene with their monster single, Ho Hey (which spent a staggering 62 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #3) and its follow-up, Stubborn Love (recently featured on President Barack Obamas Spotify playlist), The Lumineers spent a solid three years touring six of the seven continents. During that time, The Lumineers whose original members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites founded the band in Ramsey, New Jersey back in 2002 -- earned a pair of Grammy nominations (Best New Artist, Best Americana Album), contributed two songs to The Hunger Games franchise (including the hit Jennifer Lawrence/James Newton Howard collaboration, The Hanging Tree) and sold an impressive 1.7 million albums in the U.S., and 3 million worldwide. Cleopatra proves Schultz and Fraites along with cellist/vocalist Neyla Pekarek are neither taking their good fortune for granted, nor sitting back on their laurels. With the help of producer Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers, The Avett Brothers), the man Wesley calls our shaman, the band ensconced themselves in Clubhouse, a recording studio high atop a hill in rural Rhinebeck, N.Y., not far from Woodstock. The Lumineers then set about trying to make musical sense of their three-year-plus roller coaster ride. Their skill at setting a visual story to music comes through amidst the delicate, deceptively simple acoustic soundscapes. This time, though, bassist Byron Isaac provides a firm, low-end on the apocalyptic opener Sleep on the Floor, a ghostly tune about getting out of town before the subways flood [and] the bridges break

I had recently taken the doors and roof off of the jeep, and decided to use it as [really expensive] boombox. The first few tracks [to me] are amazing songs, and I was waiting for some kind of decline as the tracks played on, but one after the next - great music continued throughout the rest of the album.
This was the first CD I had purchased in over 10 years, but I did it just to support The Lumineers, but when we started listening to it, the benefit was all ours.
With a brand new Jeep, and many summer adventures on [and some off] the road, this album became an audio cue that reminds our kids of so many amazing memories doing things as a family.
Later that year, my wife wanted [and got] a record player for her birthday - which is also christmas. A couple of months later, I thought that it would be cool to also have this album on vinyl - and ordered it.
To my surprise - it is a "deluxe" edition - with a few more amazing songs! All we need now is for The Lumineers to release their next album, afterall, we have more adventures to go on... and could use another soundtrack.
