Entertainment Weekly (p.140) - "[A] gorgeously crafted set of sad and soulful laments laced with acoustic guitars, sharply punctuated piano, and delicate cello."
Billboard (p.32) - "In the 90-second 'Geraldine' Scott and Seth Avett harmonize brightly over a rollicking honky-tonk groove, while 'Winter in My Heart' slows the tempo to contemplative soul-folk stroll."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.85) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] the Willie Nelson-like 'Winter In My Heart,' heartland rock of 'Pretty Girl From Michigan' and Beatles harmonies on 'I Never Knew You'..."
Paste (magazine) - "THE CARPENTER provides a return to rudimentary Avett songwriting, in that the most striking moments on the record are born from playful banjo-guitar banter and confessions revealed in 4/4 time."
