The album of the year 2009 was released today on vinyl (CD / Digital / Deluxe box set will be released 29.9.2009). I bought my copy from 8raita record store today and I’m already completely in love with the new album. It’s just as stunning as I expected. It’s the first one on a major label, so obviously there were minor worries, but the band and producer Rick Rubin have done an excellent job. It just sounds brilliant and it’s not overproduced or overpolished. It’s The Avett Brothers. The greatest band in the world at the moment. A full review will follow later, but you already know the thrill. This is worth all the hearts in the world and if anything extraordinary doesn’t happen it will be my album of the year, if not the album of the decade.
