In their 2nd album produced by Rick Rubin, the boys from Concord, NC pick up where they left off with "I And Love And You", though less piano-based, and more of a focus on Scott's banjo. They also focus on the concept of death here, with both foreboding and benediction. As music critic James Christopher Monger writes, "The Avett Brothers aren't rewriting the book, they're just translating it for a new generation."
