    While the sound is by no means stale, it doesn't have the same edge that the band became known for during their heyday, at times feeling more like an extension of Hey Mercedes than a proper Braid release.

    Closer to Closed is a curiously short return, and there's no plans for a full-length to follow, but at least the band pushes itself in these 16 minutes, rather than retreading the high-water mark they left on.

    Closer to Closed is a testament to the decline of Braid's teen angst, but those who grew up with the band may not recognize this aging friend.
