I agree with you

The Band's goal with their first two albums wasn't just roots rock, it was encyclopedic, biblical roots rock. That sounds pretty pretentious to me. The first album has all the Biblical references in the lyrics and the art-rock/psychedelic touches in the instrumentation that others in the roots revival era wouldn't touch, and the same can be said about the lyrical storytelling and Civil War era references in their second album.
