It’s safe to say that after six albums, you pretty much know what you’re getting. For The Avett Brothers, this means a steady influx of their eclectic brand of bluegrass and folk with a splash of rock. The North Carolina natives mix the boisterousness with the balladry well, while delivering image-evoking lyrics in between. But is it possible for a group to be at the peak of its predictable powers this late in the game? The Avetts have proven better before, though it's still mighty hard to deny them.
