5.0 out of 5 stars Dashboard Confessional endorsed US rock 12 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
A quick glance at the track listing is enough to show that Brand New aren’t your typical US frat boys, who’ve struck lucky and got a record deal. Song titles such as the fine (and long) ‘Good To Know That If I Ever Need Attention All I Have To Do Is Die’ are a bold statement of intent in anyone’s books, but largely, this promise is delivered.
The album opens with ‘Tautou’, a brief, sparse (yet kind of ethereal) intro, which is a good way to set the tone for what is to follow.
Future single ‘Sic Transit Gloria’ is all creeping, funky bass and guitar, and the antithesis of those Hip Hop/R n B songs that boast of the artist’s sexual prowess. Singer Jesse Lacey has written this from the point of view of the sexually inexperienced male, terrified of his impending coming of age moment with a more dominant woman, a nice reversal of the man as sexual predator stereotype.
Lyrically, Lacey at times calls to mind a less eloquent, American Morrissey (albeit without the sense of humour), with his biting cynicism of those around him. Nowhere is this more evident than on (the possibly Home Alone inspired) ‘Okay, I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t’, seemingly an ode to a former lover, during which he declares his band to ‘be the best at what we do’, and that ‘it hurts to be this good’. It’s not clear how seriously we should take these claims, though one suspects the band don’t believe their own hype this much. The line ‘I hope you come down with something they can’t diagnose, don’t have the cure for’ is one which sticks in the throat, and should mean something to anyone who’s suffered from a nasty relationship fall out.

This is one of my favourite albums of all time. I played "Your Favorite Weapon" constantly for weeks, but now that they've matured, Brand New are even better. I loved the fast songs on "Your Favorite Weapon", but found the best quality in "Soco Amaretto Lime" and "The No Seatbelt Song". Those deeper songs are BN's real niche and they should stick to it, which they've done with "Deja Entendu". The slow slongs are in the majority here, but they are addictive slow songs with strong choruses like only Brand New can do. There are also a couple of fantastic fast (but again more mature) tracks.
(1) "Tautou" --> More of an intro than a real track. Kind of pretty ... It's neither bad nor really good so I tend to skip it. A decent warm-up though.
(2) "Sic Transit Gloria ... Glory Fades" --> A fantastic song, one of the fast tracks on the album. It's ultimately about a guy losing his virginity and not feeling quite ready, but you have to listen carefully to get that. It's surprisingly moving - the lyrics and chorus are great.
(3) "I Will Play My Game Beneath The Spin Light" --> This song is about homesickness and it's very moving. Slow-ish but catchy and with a good chorus. I love it, depressing as it is.
(4) "Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't" --> Yet another of my favourites. It's really beautiful, and has an eerie feel to it, but with quite bitter lyrics. Like most of these songs, it starts of slow but catchy, and speeds up with a catchy, powerful chorus. I'm not sure what it's about exactly, but it's great anyway ;-)
(5) "The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows" --> Another fast song. This one is anthemic, addictive and impossible to tire of. Probably favourite ever BN track. It's very heart-wrenching, and you will love it instantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Landmark Record 25 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
Trying to make a comparison between Deja Entendu and another record is proving to be difficult. It is hard to think of another CD so full of consistant talented, originaly styled music, and dripping with such brutal honesty. This is a rock CD with lyrics so meaningfull it is tough not to find songs that seem to directly relate to yourself. Each track is filled with poetic verses and catchy choruses brimming with teenage angst. But there's no whineing here... No "I love this girl, but I don't have the guts to talk to her" kind of stuff that makes you want to throw your stereo through a window, this is deep and meaningful; so much so that you'll be constantly thinking "I know just how this guy feels" as the lead singer produces another line that makes you smile with it's wit.
A final point is that this should never be compared to Brand New's first record. If they'd been clever they would have changed their name as well as their style to try and push themselves as far from their pop punk past as possible. This is different music and technicaly a different band. I would honestly recommend everyone give this record a good listening to, each track has it's own special qualities and the entire CD simply reveals more with every listen...

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Brand New’s Deja Entendu 16 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
Many people who have heard this band’s debut album will have certain expectations about this record. Whilst Your Favourite Weapon was popular, it was hardly groundbreaking. It fused what was essentially pop punk with something a bit more edgy and emotional, and was enjoyable, but not really serious music.
The new record from this band is very different; in my opinion, a step up to greater things. ‘Emo’ as a genre (whose existence is arguable) has become very popular over the last twelve months. A generation of bands have emerged who have clearly been influenced by the likes of Far, At the Drive In, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Smiths and The Cure, many of whom are talented in their own right. But countless reviewers and critics have aimed the criticism at such bands that they are following a formula, much like 2001/2’s oft-maligned ‘garage rock’ bands.
Deja Entendu seems on first listen to be the archetypal ‘Emo’ record, with its atmospheric intro track, obscure song titles and the expected heartfelt acoustic track to finish. But to me this album is so much more than that. To start with, it is a progression. The sound, in terms of musicianship and production is incomparable to that of the first album, and all the better for it. Secondly, whilst I have said that this record seems to follow a formula just as much as many others, it sounds surprisingly fresh. This is essentially to do with the bands song writing in general, and Jesse Lacey’s lyrics in particular. The band have admitted that the first record was essentially a compilation of songs played and recorded throughout their teens, but Deja Entendu contrastingly seems to be a group of songs designed to fit together.
