The Avett Brothers are a folk-rock band that truly define the genre of folk-rock. True Sadness is a beautiful representation of this, the album embodies some deep bluegrass roots with tracks like “Divorce Separation Blues” but does not fail to touch on the rock side with “Satan Pulls the Strings” and “Ain’t No Man”. Threading into their folk-rock genre, True Sadness has undertones of symphonic and contemporary music which really opens up this album to a mass audience. This album has so many great things involved with it, even if folk isn’t your type of music, True Sadness has something for everyone.
