The Avett Brother’s new album “I and Love and You” is a masterpiece. There, I said it.
Before you read on you really should hear it for yourself. Understand, its gets better with repeat listens, so go now go buy it and then come back again.
See? This is a great album. I just listened to it again with shuffle turned on (happy accident) and liked it even more. This album feels like home.
Scott and Seth Avett, along with bassist Bob Crawford, are the best americana/roots/folk/country (whatever) songwriters working. And all the reports say their live shows are amazing. Apparently they can’t find Minnesota on the map, so I haven’t seen them yet. Please, guys if you’re reading this, get your asses up to Minnesota pronto.
Something crazy, cosmic even, would have to happen for this not to be my album of the year.
