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.
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.Read more ›
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.
so when brand new brought out 'devil and god', i downloaded the first track i could find and had a listen, but didn't really expect much. that was 'sowing season'. it blew me away, the lyrical content, the chorus - everything. i moved on to 'jesus christ', 'archers' and 'handcuffs' (the easiest songs to get into on the album) but when i first heard the others, i didn't like them. over a couple of months, i somehow got them all, kept listening, and now i honestly think 'the devil and god is raging inside me' is one of the best albums out there. beautifully consistent, lyrically charged and filled with dark emotion that just won't quit, i can't even tell you how glad i am that i found this. every time i listen to it, it just gets better and better.
i'll go through the songs one by one (though words can only say so much):
'sowing season': claustrophobic, honest, and fantastically produced. the 'YEAH' chorus is proper head banging stuff, and the lyrics relate to a million litarary and emotional sources (including rudyard kipling's 'If'). you want to listen to it over and over again, cry to it, break down to it, or just use to keep going. it's easy to get into, it's beautiful, i wouldn't say it's the greatest song on the album 'cause they're all so different, but it's the one i play the most.
'I'm NOT your friend. i'm NOT your lover. i'm NOT your family. YEAH.' - legendary.
'degausser': i found this song incredibly hard to get into, it doesn't grow on you fast.Read more ›
