"... sounds like a natural extension of (the debut album) and coaxes sounds and lyricism that are a shade darker than the debut ... dips its toe in a more electric sound, but still relies on acoustic instrumentation as its foundation."
- Consequence of Sound

Four years after the band's quadruple-platinum debut album comes Beneath The Skin, the sophomore release from Icelandic outfit Of Monsters And Men. The lead single Crystals is another powerfully beautiful anthem, expanding the signature sound countless fans fell in love with. The group spent a year working on Beneath The Skin with co-producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foster The People, Interpol) between studios in Iceland and Los Angeles. This deluxe edition contains two bonus tracks and two remixes.

"I want to expand. There's no way we can create an album like we did. It's just the love child of that period, kind of, because we were (just) forming."
- Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, singer

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
