I just don't know what to do with this.

Can I be honest? I'm not really sure what to think of this new Civil Wars album. I mean, I want to like it, because Barton Hollow was so so so good....but it isn't Barton Hollow.  I mean, I'm not one of those people who thinks that every album from an artist needs to sound the same, either; I appreciate when artists can grow and change and try something new. The thing is, the Civil Wars' sound was really unique at first; this new album sounds a lot more generic...and some songs are more country (even modern pop-y country!) than folk. There's electric guitar in here, ya'll. If I didn't know it was them, I'm not sure I would be able to tell just by listening to some of the songs. The harmonies are are still awesome, and there are some stand-out songs I really really like, but as a whole....I just don't know. My brain can't process. What do you guys think? Have you listened yet?

    Um, I agree with you. I will tell you though, I immediately bought it on vinyl before even listening all the way through.
    Now that I've listened to it beginning to end? Nah, I wouldn't have shelled out 30 bucks on the thing. Love the beginning... they lose me about half way through. Oh, the sadness.
