What if....?

How disheartening it is to realize Jesse probably will "never" believe this album is complete. Since the demos were leaked last year, who knows how potentially outstanding this album could have been. The point is nobody, not even Jesse and the band will ever know. He has been quoted for saying that he was very "down" about the leaked songs last year. He also has said that upon hearing that the songs had been leaked, he felt the need to "go back" and re-write the songs. The new CD is said only have 2 of those demos on the CD (Luca and Sowing Season). The rest of the CD is full of songs that either were inspired by the demos, or simply written in place of the potential timeless songs that Jesse had been working on for almost three years but never made it because they were leaked. I guess the point of this album is almost sad. I believe it is fantastic, I almost think it is as good as Deja Entendu. But what will always live with me when I listen to this 12-song trip into Jesse's genious mind is that alot of these songs are REPLACEMENTS. Thats right folks. Nobody will ever know the REAL The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. Not even Jesse Lacey. We are forever burdened to listen to a phenomenal album that could possibly be a shell of whatever was meant to be released. So shame on all of us. Shame on us for not letting the creative process run its course. Shame on us for stopping Picasso before he was finished painting. Shame on us to stop Mozart before he was done composing. And shame on us for preventing Jesse Lacey from giving us what he really wanted to give us. Truely a sad, sad story.

Do you remember...

...when you were a little kid and the feeling of waiting an eternity for Christmas morning to finally come? Then, when that glorious morning arrives and you rush down to unwrap that present you had been wanting so bad, you know, that certain action figure you wanted all year long. Now, do you remember how you felt when you opened it and found out that your parents got you the wrong one? The confusion, the disappointment. Thats what i feel after hearing TDAGARIM. I wait 3-1/2 years and this is what i get? Never did i think that by the end of this cd would i not be smiling. I dont know when BN went a little off course. Not that the cd is bad by any means. The lyrics are as usual great and there is variety in each song but it just seems over produced. To many sound effects and things going on that take away from THEIR sound. With the theme of this cd there should have been at least one acoustic song, but there is not, and "Handcuffs" lyrically doesnt do it for me(Jesse didnt write it). And really, nearly 4 years pass, they admit to writing nearly 60 songs and they stick and instrumental and an intermission track to fill the space?!? What a waste. Tracks 1-4, awesome! 5-12 average at best. All the leaked untitled demos rocked and with some fine tuning would have made a much better album than this. Stick Untitled 1, 2, 3 and 5 on this album and you have a solid 4-1/2 star album. For something that has taken this long, the whole thing just doesnt feel finished, all the way from the horrible one page web site to the cardboard sleeve case with no lyrics. Please tell me that the REAL cd is still being worked on and this was just to hold me over till then

A Return To Form!

Jesse and the crew from Brand New have come back from a bit of a hiatus, and are better then ever! I'm from Long Island, and let me tell you, this work has been anticipated for a long time. Between the lack of news about them, to their cryptic website, fans have been fearing the worst, that Brand New could have broken up. However with the release of "The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Of Me," we see that they have actually spent this time working hard at writing some amazing songs. Many people might be quick to label the band as an "Emo" group, however, after a few listens, you can tell that they have developed an extremely different sound from their earlier songs. And their style is definitely accessible to every type of listener. For sure, this album can appeal to a wider audience than just their fans. My top tracks include "Sowing Season," "Jesus Christ," and "Not the Sun." The last one I mentioned is probably my favorite. Different from the usual Brand New in that the song is almost a dance-rock number, and trust me, you will love it!


Formed: 2000 in Merrick, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Although the members of Brand New cut their teeth in various hardcore bands, the group took a more melodic approach to its own work, embracing punk-pop on the debut album Your Favorite Weapon and incorporating aspects of indie rock during future projects. Formed in Long Island, NY, the band took shape in 2000 around the talents of drummer Brian Lane, vocalist/guitarist Jesse Lacey, bassist Garrett Tierney, and guitarist Vin Accardi. Brand New wasted little time attracting local attention with a self-released...
