This review is from: I And Love And You (Audio CD)
Probably destined to be America's best kept musical secret the Avett's under the wistful direction of Rick Rubin have produced another great record chock full of memorable tunes.The punkier elements from earlier recordings are largely absent much more piano and less banjo regretable maybe but fortunately the songs are as good as anything they've written before.
Ruminations on life death love and heartache more dark than light but when their wonderful harmonies kick in you can't help but raise a smile and crack open a bottle.
