Editors’ Notes

Brand New write many of their songs on acoustic guitar, but it’s hard to imagine “Vices” stripped down because it sounds like singer Jesse Lacey is screaming for his mortal soul as demons drag him howling through the gates of hell. Conversely, the hushed and somber “Bed” is conducive to some romantic strumming around the campfire. “At the Bottom” plays like tougher Northwest indie rock with loud guitars and Lacey affecting a Built To Spill-inspired, nasal-toned inflection. The influences shift to early-‘90s English shoegazing on the lush and lilting “You Stole,” as reverb and delay splash beautifully dark and cold hues all over the guitars, while Lacey approximates the whisper-sung style that was prevalent in bands like Chapterhouse, My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive; halfway through the song the bridge erupts with a sonic wall of noise not unlike Nowhere-era Ride. While some may long for more of Brand New’s louder side, true fans will delight in hearing the band keep to their namesake by trying something that for them sounds brand new.

Customer Reviews

This is DAISY...

I say that because I'm sure there will be countless people complaining, "well it's not [insert album name here] and therefore it is inferior work." just as they did when The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me was released. To these people, I say, you're missing the beauty of this band. Brand New is one of the only bands that can reinvent its sound on each album and still produce something brilliant and fully satisfying to most of the ardent supporters of past works. This is why every 3 years, when they release a new album, I am waiting with bated breath to see what unique concoction of acoustic/electric/alt/punk/post-hardcore/indie/blues/rock they have produced. Enjoy (or hate) Daisy based on its own merits rather than complaining that it isn’t a rehash of past work. I, for one, am happy to have brand new Brand New that stands alone from all other past (and most likely future) contributions.

An Epic Addition to a Legendary Collection - Track for Track Review

In a recent interview with Jesse Lacey, he said, "Brand New is dead." They basically are retiring from the music scene because they have seen where the rockstar life has led people, and they don't want to follow that path. He said that he doesn't need a record company to tell him his music is good. Ladies and gentlemen, this very well could be Brand New's last record album, and by golly do they go out with a bang. I disagree with Jesse Lacey's statement. Brand New is complete.
I was lucky enough to recieve a leaked copy of the CD about a month ago (but I did also pre-order the Daisy/T-shirt bundle, I would not steal from Brand New) and after having that much time to listen to the album, I am still pretty much speechless. One of the cool things about Brand New is that they change so much in every record, from YFW to Deja, from Deja to Devil and God, and now from Devil and God to Daisy. THIS IS NOT TDAGARIM 2, Daisy is a completely different CD. However, it is definitely more like Devil and God than the first two.
1. Vices - 10/10 - The first time you hear Vices, whether its on the cd in your car, or from iTunes, is absolutely priceless moment. Starting off with some opera singer (which is a very Brand New thing to do in my opinion) and then going into the side of Brand New we have never heard before. Jesse Lacey said that they were going to have songs on the record that they want to play live more than they want to record, and this one would be one heckuva song live (I'm seeing them live Oct. 9, btw). In all of Brand New's first three records, I have NEVER heard him scream like this, and by golly is it absoulutely awesome. The first time I heard it I just started laughing because it was so...perfect. One of my favorite on the record.
2. Bed - 10/10 - If you've never heard Brand New before, going from Vices to Bed will be a big shock, because they are COMPLETELY different types of music. This is the soft Brand New, and it is also very brilliant. More of a Devil and God song. Definitely a song worthy of the Brand New title.
3. At the Bottom - 10/10 - When a song is released as a single, it's kind of hard to compare it to the rest of the CD because you've already been listening to it for so long it just feels kind of...seperate. The first time I heard At the Bottom though, about a week before it was released on iTunes, I had a confirmation that Daisy would not only live up to my expectations, which were very, very, VERY high, but might even surpass them. Definitely one of the best songs on the record and, also very unique and different. The first three songs all show how different Brand New's music is from each other and all other music out there.
4. Gasoline - 10/10 - Honestly, Gasoline is probably my least favorite on the album, but that does not make it a bad song. You know that a band is freaking amazing when their worst song is still better than most's band's best song. Good, but if you were only to buy one song, Gasoline should not be it.
5. You Stole - 10/10 - This song is...one of those speechless songs where you can't describe how freaking amazing it is. You Stole will go down as on of the greatest songs (for me anyways) of all time. Another thing about Brand New is they're SO.DARN.CATCHY. I find myself listening to this song and then singing it all day. This song is downright epic.
6. Be Gone - 10/10 - Be Gone is kind of the Welcome to Bangkok of The Devil and God. Not really a song, if you know what I mean. It's sweet, and amazingly produced, but you won't find yourself listening to it over and over again.
7. Sink - 10/10 - At first, to be honest, I did not like Sink as much as some of the others, but the more I listened to it the more and I liked it and now it's one of the catchiest songs on the album for me. Amazing bridge, exceeds Bridge Expectations for even Brand New. Definitely a 10/10 song.
8. Bought a Bride - 10/10 - This song is...wow. When the bass comes in, a couple seconds into the song, you just look at whoever you're with and say, "that was freaking rad." This is definitely one of Brand New's best songs, have listened to it so many times. If you are only going to get a couple songs of the CD, definitely get this one. Freakin awesome.
9. Daisy - 10/10 - The first song by Brand New that they've ever named their album from. Daisy may be the greatest Brand New song ever written (for me). And coming from me, as Brand New is the greatest thing that ever happened to me, that would make this one of the greatest songs ever written. In fact, the only song I can think of right now that can rival it, is the one two songs later, Noro. If anything else, just buy the song to support a band that could write such brilliant material. You will have to listen to this song to understand what I mean. This song is legendary.
10. In a Jar - 10/10 - Again, this one is not my favorite on the album, but a good addition. It's not single-worthy, but the more you listen to it the more it will grow on you.
11. Noro - 10/10 - For me it is a battle of this one and Daisy for the greatest song on the record. Absolutely, fantastically, genuinely brillianitly GENIUS. And, for those of you like me that thought he said, "i'm on my way out" in the chorus, he doesn't, he says, "I'm on my way to hell." I guess that's the final message Brand New is trying to convey. And then they end the song with the same opera lady that started on Vices. Incredible.

All in all, as you can see by my track for track ratings, this album is absolutely incredible. I didn't think that there would ever be a CD to rival Devil and God, but if there was one, here it is. For me, this may be the greatest record of all time. If you call yourself even a little bit of a Brand New fan, buy it.

BRAND NEW IS A LEGEND

-Brice..Stewart

The Devil...is Raging Inside Me

Where The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me hung on the tension of an undecided soul, Daisy seems to have abandoned all hope of redemption and sold itself to thickly distorted vocals and incoherent guitars. The album is different, but not necessarily innovative. One can find traces of Brand New's trademark melodies, but the album constantly reminds listeners of what has been lost. Perhaps the greatest change is in Jesse Lacey's vocals. In previous albums, the emotion never crushed the melody; screaming colored the rise and fall of the notes. Here, melody is repeatedly abandoned in favor of despair without tone. Vices manages to alienate listeners on both ends of the spectrum with its "artful" combination of opera and screaming. Be Gone begins with an interesting hook, but is quickly overpowered by electronic, guttural groaning that might be described as vocals. That's not to say that the album doesn't have bright moments. As in previous albums, the lyrics truly capture the essence of despair, of emptiness, of sorrow. At The Bottom and Bed resonate with the old spirit of Brand New in ways that will please long-time fans who are--like me, admittedly--stuck in the past. Laid back tracks like You Stole and Daisy still pack enough punch to make them worth repeated listens. All in all, the album is worth sifting through because no matter your style, there is a little of something for everyone.
