Album Review: The Avett Brothers, "The Second Gleam"
As someone who's a fan of this NC duo's energetic, banjo fueled folk-punk, I was disappointed by this album. It's too ballad dominated, with songs that tend to wallow in their own sappiness. Still, the Avett Brothers are some of the best songwriters out there, and some of these songs are moving, rousing and well worth a spin.
