Product Description

Product Description

10 years is a long time. Back in 2001, Brand New was, well, brand new; an undeveloped, young group of guys collecting what they knew about life so far and sharing it with the world. These thoughts came together to form YOUR FAVORITE WEAPON. It was the uninhibited, powerful force that launched Brand New into the forefront of the post-hardcore scene. Three albums and over a million records later, Brand New is revisiting the record that started it all. The raw, poignant songs that so well defined a cohort of lost teenagers are about to get more raw and poignant. Fully remastered with seven never-before-heard demos, the YOUR FAVORITE WEAPON DELUXE EDITION takes listeners more in-depth, shedding light as to how these songs came together and how the album and band developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Favourite Record 9 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
'Your Favourite Weapon' should be revered as a masterpeice. Revered or not, a masterpiece is exactly what this is. Like t_i_m_h says, there's not a second of filler on here.
Musically, YFW is somewhere between Taking Back Sunday's dynamics (Jesse's an ex-member dontchaknow)and Midtown's eye for a tune, emotional without being nauseating & tuneful without being sickly, a taste for the discerning pallate.
Lyrically, it's a trip through past experiences; romance turned bad, friendships turned to animosity, but what sets Brand New ahead of the pack is Jesse's darkly comic, confessional and poetic lyrics, one moment chatty, like your best friends and the next as cutting as if you'd left him for his brother (or former bandmate in Seventy Times Seven, for the response listen to 'There's No I In Team' by TBS, where the ghost voices of 'Seventy...' can be heard in the background).
In an album this good it's hard to pick favourites but the standouts for me are 'Sudden Death in Carolina', 'Failure By Design' and the aforementioned 'Seventy Times Seven'.
Incidentally, Southern Comfort, Amaretto & Lime (topped with lemonade) is a great combo for summer evenings, and leaves you with a feeling not unlike the end of this album.
If you only buy one CD this month...

Brand New have the melody of a band pushing for a major label deal - see the "we're not in high school" refrain on Last Chance To Lose Your Keys" - but break the mould of songs about having your heart broken; some songs are about wishing their ex-girlfriends were killed in a variety of horrifying ways. The no-seatbelt song is self explanatory and Jude Law and a semester abroad wishes a plane crash on an ex moving to the good old UK! Lyrically they kind of remind me of Alk3 mixed with Saves The Day. If you like pop-punk in the vein of the ataris but are looking for something that departs from their formula try this.

I was recommended Deja Entendu by amazon, so i downlaoded a song from the album. Not incredibly impressed i downloaded "Magazines" from Your Favourite Weapon and loved it!
I bought "Favourite Weapon" and after about 2 weeks of listening i really got into the lyrics . "The only broken hearted loser you'll ever need" ...genius, no really. Every song is a masterpiece there is not one bad song. Fans of Taking Back Sunday will blown away.The album is so emotional and Heart felt.Buy, please if i could but it for you all i would.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an album... 14 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
It is only to easy these days to buy an album and initially milk the best song to death on it and the move on to the next best ones, however if you work on that mentality, you're gonna be spoiled for choice with this cd, there are so many amazing songs. Jesse Lacey approaches the themes of heartbreak and let down with vengeance instead of whining, exporing ideas of his enemies dying in car crashes and choking to death! Even so this is extremely uplifting music, with very little material to make you depressed, songs like 'sudden death in carolina' and 'last chance to lose you keys' being my favourites, as well as live favourites 'jude law' and 'seventy times seven' kicking ass. The acoustic numbers are also amazing. If you have to buy an album right now, get this! Comparisons to Taking Back Sunday are inevitable but ive got albums by both and this is better.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely fantastic and original album 5 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
I am paying 10 to see Finch this spring...you know why? because Brand:New are supporting them.This album is absolutely brilliant.It has been in my Cd player regularly since November.
The track "Mixtape" was recommended by a canadian friend of mine and i really liked it so i obtained more songs before eventually buying the album.More than half of this albums songs could be picked out as stand out songs,lyrically the album constantly shifts gears and is very thought provoking,it reminds me of Sublime when Brand New use upbeat poppy riffs in songs with very dark subject matter.
This album comes highly recommended to people who are a bit disolussioned with pop-punk and its predictable format and want to try something a little different,or people who are into heavier emo bands and like a lighter touch from time-to-time.The lyrics always hit the points and are relatable to most people,while the songs always remain accesable and catchy.Like all good albums, you just keep coming back for more.
stand out songs-"mixtape"-"failure by design"-"seventy times 7"

5.0 out of 5 stars Brand New-this is NOT pop punk!! 27 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ive been listening to Brand New for a couple of months now and a band this good cant stay unnoticed for much longer. Supporting Finch this spring in the UK its only a matter of time before their name starts appearing in tip-ex on scruffy moshers bags and teenage girl's homework diaries all over Britain. Which is a shame because they are above that. Their sound is a skillfull blend of acts like Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World and the Get Up Kids with a hint of punk thrown in for fun. When they say in Failure by design "we don't believe in filler baby" they aren't lying. The songs are consistently excellent however my personal favourites are Mix Tape, Magazines, Soco Ameretto Lime and (undoubtedly sure to be their first single) Jude Law and a Semester Abroad. Buy this album now and enjoy them before they slowly lose their credibility in the face of mass teen popularity. They also have a Split CD with Safety in Numbers (which is extremely hard to obtain due to the limited amount produced) and a DVD on Triple Crown (again limited).I proudly own both.Look out for the new album this june...
