Huh. I really really enjoyed this album and actually found it to be more interesting than I and Love and You. But then again, I just really enjoy the Avett Brothers. To each his/her own.

Sounds just a tad offensive to me

Dude, Paul Newman is an awesome song. I love when musicians step out of their comfort zones. I don't know, I think it was successful. A little harsh on the album overall, methinks.

Full disclosure: I'm a sucker for heavy music with layered group vocals (see: Baroness).

I just got into TAB right after they released I and Love and You, and I agree with you completely. I love this new album! Even though it's not a very cohesive album, the songs are still great on their own.

A lack of cohesion is tough for me to get into.

Love everything these guys do, but agree that some songs, while still good, stick out a little. No mention of the last track in the review, which I think is absolutely beautiful.

I understand this website's bias, but LOL. The fact that the new Yellowcard album received a 95% while this record receives a 75% is absolutely laughable.

liking it more the more I listen to it. It certainly won't win them any new fans, but I think it's a pleasurable album overall, with a bit of a more somber tone compared to their previous two. Also, if you have a Target near by, buy the album there, because it's only $10 and comes with two bonus tracks, including one of the better tracks on the album 'Die Then Grow', a good a 6 minute long romp
