Dear Superfans, Please Stop Whining

I have had this album for 4 months,(have a friend at the record company) and I adore it. Took a few listens, as most good albums do, and songs I hated at first I now love. But on another note, the superfans who are complaining about the lack of banjo and "bluegrass" sound need to understand that no real artist just wants to keep doing the same thing. These guys have been at it for 12 years. They aren't kids anymore and they want to spread their wings and move on. The pretentious whining about selling out is so outdated. People want to get paid! Plus if you actually take the time and listen those alt-country/Americana feelings are still dripping all over the album. Should we all rip Picasso for selling out when he abandoned cubism? How about Dylan when he went electric? I applaud artists who try new things and follow their own path. I get real bored of people who do the same thing over and over.

Things change and get strange with the movement of time

If the Avett Brother fans keep an open mind they'll enjoy it. If they want every song to sound like something off of mignonette, they are going to be sorely disappointed.

This is a very solid collection of songs and really demonstrates the maturing and developing of the Avett's songwriting.

Ok people, get real

This is not the best Avett album. I LOVE the Avetts Bros but this album is so over-produced. They have been mainstreamed. I am very sad. Give me some banjo and growly lyrics!!! Please screw what the producers thinks and give us back our Avett Bros. I give them 3 stars on this and they are my favorite band of all time.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The Avett Brothers' music has roots in traditional folk and bluegrass, but also captures the high spirits and no-boundaries attitude of rock & roll -- which is appropriate, since rock is where Scott Avett and Seth Avett first cut their teeth as musicians. Although siblings Scott (vocals, banjo) and Seth (vocals, guitar) began making music together as children, their group's genesis began when they were members of Nemo, a rock band that gigged regularly in Greenville, North Carolina.
