Their second album, Picture Perfect, is a tuneful, mostly melancholy affair that delves into broken relationships, broken hearts, and the girls who caused them, and for a change of pace, romantic struggles. It could have made for a disheartening slog through their heartbreak journals, but to their credit, Every Avenue, and especially singer David Ryan Strauchman, show a real sensitivity to the material, and the mix of ballads and uptempo tracks keeps the album from getting bogged down in sadness.
