Editors’ Notes Of Monsters and Men create rousing, cinematic indie rock in spectacular fashion, and the thundering “Crystals,” with splashy cymbals and bursting choruses, starts their sophomore album in an awe-inspiring manner. Beneath The Skin aims for the rafters: “Hunger” starts in a hushed state, punctuated by acoustic guitar strums before rising into battering drums. “Empire” glows with synth and golden harmonies. And the tempestuous oceans “Black Water” conjures with its massive, wordless choruses and melancholy melodies feel infinite.
