Live, Vol. 3 CD

The Avett Brothers made a name for themselves as rough-and-raw folk practitioners.  What they lack in finesse, they make up for with spirited performances and solid songwriting.  This live album, recorded before the release of their major-label debut, I and Love and You, features several tracks from that album along with their formidable back catalog.  It's the best format possible to hear the band, since the studio does remove a bit of the group's natural live energy.  The Ballad of Love and Hate is a sharp-tongued observance of life and love.  When I Drink is a sweet folk tune that could've come from the catalog of Loudon Wainwright III.  The quiet elegance of Murder In the City and the brutal barn-burning of I Killed Sally's Lover showcase the band at home with two entirely different speeds.  Paranoia in B Flat Major is more hi-jinks from a band who add a naughty streak to a music that is often better known for its serious sincerity. - iTunes
