Unlike many of Mumford and Sons' songs I Will Wait is uplifting and generally positive. They skip the angst part and get right to the "it's all going to be okay" refrain. It pushes teens, in my opinion, in a positive direction..."I'll be bold, as well as strong, and use my head alongside my heart" is probably a good reminder in our very impulsive culture! That said, the style is distinctive. It's not country, but rather a very decided neo-folk sound with strong Irish overtones. I always feel compelled to add, I'm not a parent but an 18-year-old college student, so parents may feel differently!
