The Carpenter, the Avett Brothers’ second album for a major label and first for Universal Republic, feels a lot more like a major label release than its predecessor, 2009’s I and Love and You. The record has a huge pop-rock sheen to it that will take fans of the group’s older, more authentically country material some time to adjust to. Once making peace with the more accessible sound, however, it becomes clear that the Avett Brothers’ songwriting chops are just as sharp as ever.
