Insieme al disco omonimo fu l'unico lavoro -datato 1969- che il cantautore incise per un'etichetta major, la Warner in questo caso, interrompendo un rapporto con la Vanguard, gia' fautore di grandi soddisfazioni sia artistiche che a livello commerciale. Turnisti di rango quali Chuck Rainey, Bruce Langhorne, J.D. Maness, Eric Gale e Lee Crabtree contribuirono a forgiare un disco introspettivo, soave, a tratti fragile ma sicuramente degno della fama conquistata con tanta fatica. Ristampa particolarmente attesa data l'impossibilita' di reperire l'album in altra edizione. Da segnalare la grande versione di 'Louise' scritta da Paul Siebel

Avalanche was Andersen's first album for Warner Bros. after a fairly long stint at Vanguard. It was consistent with his prior efforts in that, while it found him operating at a respectable level, it couldn't break him into the upper echelon of singer/songwriters, in terms of either sales or art. It's diverse and diffuse, qualities which neither work strongly for or against him on this particular effort. If he was worried about the constant new Dylan comparisons, he did himself no favors with the opening "It's Comin' and It Won't Be Long," a fair but derivative sounding Dylan-esque cut in both its composition and vocal phrasing. Yet, it's not typical of the record, which largely examines romantic ups and downs -- a timeworn subject of popular music, true -- in intelligent, reflective fashion that admits some humor, and goes into some good-time vaudevillian and country-rock music besides the expected folk-rock-influenced singer/songwriting. Major session dudes Chuck Rainey, Bruce Langhorne, J.D. Maness, Eric Gale, and Lee Crabtree were on hand to provide a professional yet reserved sound. He broached pop territory on "Think About It" and "So Hard to Fall," which really wouldn't have sounded bad on AM radio, female vocals and orchestration included. "(We Were) Foolish Like the Flowers" and the son-lost-to-war lament "For What Was Gained" were more in line with what listeners usually expected from Andersen: gentle, almost fragile, introspective mild folk-rock.
