5.0 out of 5 stars fight off your demons 20 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ok, first things first. I've never liked 'Your Favourite Weapon'. Barring a couple of nice lyrical touches, it never struck me as having much to differentiate itself from anything else within its genre, so when 'The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows' came out, followed by 'Deja Entendu', i couldn't believe it was the same band. I took to the album instantly and it was easily among my favourites of that year. Plus you have to admire any band that calls themselves Brand New and then titles their second album 'Already Heard'.

Anyway, to the present. The development of this band continues to astound me, and with 'The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me' they have separated themselves from any notions of 'scene' or the dreaded word 'emo' by making an artful, intelligent and experimental rock album that defies all expectations. Opening with 'Sowing Season', the effect is like Jesse Lacey stopped playing 'Play Crack The Sky' at the end of 'Deja Entendu' and simply started another song. Then the yell of 'Yeah' comes in and the transition between the two albums is complete. Whereas 'Deja Entendu' had a smooth, warm groove running through it that helped to sell the bitterness of some of the lyrics, this album pulls no such punches. The drums are huge throughout, the guitars move from soothing to jarring several times within one song, and running times stretch to 8 minutes. This is not intended be an easy listen, and the first run through the album is a little alienating but the layers of the songs come to the foreground in time, and it reveals itself to be a much more complete and coherent album than their previous efforts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 7 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
For those reviews on here that see this album as a loss of form for Brand New compared to Deja Entendu, you are failing to allow the band to evolve and explore new ground.

This album has a wealth of emotional depth and is a deeply introspective work by Jessie Lacey - who is undoubtedly one of the most gifted songwriters of his generation. Tracks such as Jesus Christ and You Won't Know are brutally honest in their portrayal of lost love and loneliness.

Having seen the band live recently, Lacey sang with raw emotion leaving no doubt about the heartfelt nature of Brand New's music.

While the album does contain a number of brooding slow burners, there are still plenty of opportunities for them to rock out - such as the Archers Bows Have Broken, which is an infectious track complete with searing riffs and Lacey's emotive vocals.

Ignore the doubters: it deserves a place in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece 29 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album for my kid cousin when it first came out. She liked Enter Shikari, MCR, and other so called emo bands, and gut feel was it would be a good fit. She loved it.

A couple of months later my instinct was telling me to get this album even though I'm not a fan of the music she liked, and hadn't heard a song or seen reviews, but eventually I gave in and bought it. The last time I did that was in the 90's when I picked up Afghan Whigs masterpiece, Gentlemen. This decision was as good as that one.

I play my favourite albums to death, until I don't fancy listening to them any more, as the mystique stripped away leaves them ordinary. This goes for classics Nevermind, Stone Roses debut and Definitely Maybe. They just don't hold the depth they did, yet I still love them all, just not in the same way.

The Devil... is different. It is a rare album that keeps that aura, no matter how many times listened and dissected, no matter how many times you find meanings behind the songs. It just carries that magic. From the build up of Sowing Season, it just impresses with every track. Jesus Christ is beautiful, without failing to leave me reflecting on questions I won't ever really understand. Limousine breaks your heart. "I love you so much, do me a favour don't reply" is emotive enough before you understand what is really being sung about.

You Won't Know and Not The Sun let adrenaline loose inside me, though are usurped by The Archers, which shudders my chest at every punch of the chorus, every time "free-eezing over hell".

For me though, the finest song on the album is Degausser. It tempts you, coerces you, takes you, then drags you on a journey with control, venom, despair, loss, passion, self loathing and anger. It has to be played loud, and when the song closes with "the storm is coming in", you are left exhausted but better for the experience. It is cathartic.

The Devil is without doubt a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars The work of true genius 28 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Brand New are a band that I would describe as genius. Jesse Lacey (the lead singer) write some of the most intelligent and interesting lyrics I have ever heard. He manages to write the same old emotional songs in a way never heard before. He is expertly backed by fantastic bass hooks and beautiful, faultless guitar playing. This band are the complete package. They have everything.

This album confirms that they are not just young kids trying to play something edgy. They started out as a pop-punk band producing a very fine piece of music in Your Favourite Weapon. Then came their breakthrough album, a work of genius too Deja Entendu. That album showed the phenomenal style this band had.

This album The Devil and God ... continues their progression as a band. I know people often say that a band maturing is a bad thing. In this case it most definitely is not. Brand New have come of age in this album. The songwriting it flawless. Simply listen to Jesus Christ and you will know what I mean. The intro to that song is deceptively simple, much like what the Red Hot Chili Peppers do. Jesse is on fine form throughout the whole of the album, his vocals at his best ever (aside from The No Seatbelt Song on their first album).

The guitar is explosive in songs like Sowing Season and the lyrics just epic. The only downside in this album in my opinion is that it kind of starts to tail off during the end. The first half is so fantastic but some of the later songs seem to go off on a tangent. But when Brand New go off a tangent it is still great music to listen to.

Who do they sound like? Well that is a very hard question as to me no one quite sounds like Brand New.

1.0 out of 5 stars When did Sum 41 change their name?
Typical whiny, vacuous, non descript pop "punk". Could be substituted for any number of similarly dull, shouty bands and this album is exactly the same.
