You hate architects with no sense of practicality... wait, yeah... that's pretty much all of them. Here is a quote from my structures professor that you should appreciate. He had an MA in Architecture and a PhD in Engineering aka a total badass.
"Architects like to design all this frilly, pretty crap. They then pay me to make it stand up,so basically, I take their money since they are too lazy to learn math."

Yea I really don't get the Avett Brothers love on the board in general.
I've been a big fan for a long time, but this album isn't hitting anything for me. Needs more grit, less polish. More brutal heartache, less sappy corny. Kind of like Death Cab when Ben is happy and married. I want sulking depressing Ben Gibbard. I'm all for people being happy, but my musicians are far superior when they're going through rough times.
Exactly! *THIS* is why I love Colin Meloy/The Decemberists, The National, Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead, Damien Rice, Belle & Sebastian, Jeff Buckley, and other intelligent, brooding artists.
