5.0 out of 5 stars Wish there was a sixth star... March 25 2014

Just discovering something new here, for me. New genre, or new way of doing a well established one even better, I am not sure. Deep lyrics, talented musicians, and something I cant quite describe. I would buy it again if I lost it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too talented by half May 2 2011
By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I am new to the Avett Brothers but wanted to share my true joy with the world for hiow good this record is (sorry CD showing my age there). This is probably my favourite album of the year with John Grants (Queen of Denmark)coming a close second (for different reasons). It is so unusual to be able to say that there is not a duff track on an album but you can about this and there is an incredible range in the depth and variety of the songs, whilst very much having one foot in 'Americana'(The Felice Brothers asked what that meant when they played End of the Road Festival in England last year) there are hints of more ballsy rock and I even feel a hint of 'The Barenaked Ladies' on 'A Slight figure of Speech' with a vocal approaching a rap, which is something I would normally run from, but this is just excellent and fun.

Whilst the brothers are multi instrumentalists, they also have a small army of contributing artists including Simon Felice and I think all that talent just bursts forth on this fabrilliant album. Stand out tracks for me are the soaring and beautiful 'Ill with want', 'Tin man' and the monumental 'Head full of doubt/Road full of promise'. Spoil your self and buy this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Songs of Longing and Love Sept. 29 2009
By David Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am entranced by both the musicality and the clever and thoughtful lyrics of "I and Love and You." Consider the title song lyrics: "Three words that became hard to say: I and love and you." As a whole the album considers the nature of love, loneliness, longing and desire. The vocals and instrumentals are both energetic and polished as one would expect from a major label debut produced by Rick Rubin.

The Avett's overall style on this album is a charming blend of folk-country and rock. My favorite songs include the sweet and soulful "January Wedding" and "Ten Thousand Words" which describes the danger of paralysis by introspection. Then there is the wise and wonderful "The Perfect Space" which states "I wanna have friends that I can trust. .... that love me for the man I've become, not the man that I was." Perfect Space has an engaging shift from slow to up-tempo midway through the song. Other songs such as the joyous "Kick Drum Heart," "Slight Figure of Speech," and "It Goes On and On" exhibit this same wonderful level of foot stomping punk rock overdrive throughout.

"I and Love and You" is an album that makes me think and makes me happy at the same time. NPR has described the Avett Brothers as "Moving and smart, catchy and warm, it's a band -- and an album -- that anyone could love." I agree and suggest you get and listen to the album as soon as you can.

TheAvettBrothers Dotcom also has a stream of all the songs from I and Love and You. You call also see the NPR video and audio streams of the Avett Brothers including their performance at the 2009 Newport Folk Festival, Song of the Day and tiny desk concert. Wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best CDs this year Sept. 29 2009
By William Merrill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
With their major label debut, the Avett Bros. should hopefully be receiving even more attention than before, and well deserved it will be. The new album, I and Love and You, contains all of the good things that the Brothers represent, musically. There are satisfying harmonies, some great playing of instruments (primarily acoustic), and most of all, a very good baker's dozen of new tunes. Style-wise, the band's music is often considered New Folk, or Americana, or another roots-based category. For me, I prefer to just put them in a "favorite songs" category and leave it at that. So we do get a fair share of 6-string, banjo, piano, and even the occasional tuba, but the instrumentation is in service of the good songs. (It's not all acoustic. A few cuts such as "Kick Drum Heart" and "Slight Figure of Speech" have a more standard rock sound.) Perhaps one fear Avett fans had about the jump to a major was that they would be paired up with a producer who would water down their music, but Rick Rubin did a terrific job with I and Love and You. In this day of so many overproduced recordings, it's nice to hear a pure and clean version of the Avett Brothers that allows all of their joy in the music to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are There More Than Five Stars? Sept. 29 2009
By Library Gaga - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I admit I'm biased and would listen to anything The Avett Brothers wanted to record, including conversations while broken down by the side of the road. That's a testament to their charisma, honesty, and straightforward talent. The new CD is packed with fantastic songs. My favorite so far is "Ill With Want" (what a title!) and if you aren't crying by the time you finish listening to those words you may not be human. Others that concert fans are already familiar with include Laundry Room (the passion will wow you, although I think it comes across better in concert), Tin Man, and the title song. Another standout among standouts is "Road Full of Promise Head Full of Doubt". I'm looking forward to a long relationship with these songs and sentiments. Oh, I almost forgot "January Wedding"! How could I forget that jewelbox?
For people new to The Avett Brothers, I urge you to also get their earlier CDs. These are the songs the rabid fans first knew them by, and they are different that the songs on I&L&Y. You need to know the other facets of the best band in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars ~ Sept. 30 2009
By A.R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I must preface this review by stating that I am in no way a musical scholar. That being said, while I cannot state in technical terms what is right or wrong with this album, even if I could, I wouldn't. For me, it's not about timbre or quantity of banjo riffs or quality of production. From the most basic, stripped-down standpoint, isn't music, well, any art form really, meant to evoke emotion? Anybody could technically learn how to strum a guitar, but not everybody can make you feel it like The Avett Brothers. Without thinking of their past albums or whether or not you feel that they are abandoning a certain genre, in the purest sense, I and Love and You provides truly thought-provoking music. Every word is genuine. Each lyric is placed not because it rhymes with a previous line, but because it is meant to be there. This is what I appreciate about The Avett Brothers: a common thread of honesty that winds through every one of their albums, this one included.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Disappointment Here Dec 11 2009
By S. Finefrock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
With me it was love at first listen with the Avett Brothers. Their scrappy brand of American roots music coupled with strong songwriting was a refreshing aural tonic. I enjoyed watching them expand their musical pallet and continue to grow as songwriters and thought that their last album EMOTIONALISM was nothing short of a masterpiece. But, I became nervous when I saw that the band had signed with a major label and spent the spring touring with the Dave Matthews Band. With trepidation I purchased I AND LOVE AND YOU, afraid that I would be bitterly disappointed with their new work. Well, I was wrong. The new album not only matches the much heralded EMOTIONAISM, but to my ears, surpasses it.

While I miss the feral sound of their earlier work and live shows, I feel that this is their most consistent set of songs. Their open and honest lyrics have been honed to an even sharper edge on this set. While expanding their sound with more percussion, strings and keyboards, the Avetts have not forgotten how to write drop-dead gorgeous tunes. 10,000 WORDS, AND IT SPREAD and JANUARY WEDDING are beautiful songs that have a timeless quality. The title song which seemed a little weak when I first heard it leaked as a single now seems like a mission statement and sets the tone perfectly.

The plain truth is that this is a great album, full of unforgettable songs, strong melodies and crystal clear instrumental and vocal performances. Fans of the band's previous work should find much to love here, while it's a perfect place for the uninitiated to start. The Avett Brothers have hit their stride and are a true musical treasure. Enjoy them
