    The natural progression from TDAGARIM, brilliant album structure and songs such and Vices, Sink, In a Jar and the haunting Noro make this a must buy. Best listened to as a whole the album is a Journey only tainted by the 'radio single' At The Bottom, easily the worst song on the album

    Brand new move slightly away from the utter depth of last album (tdagarim), opting for a more feral , grunge influenced sound., and its brilliant. best tracks - bought a bride, noro, vices, but all quality

    My least favorite album by my favorite band, but I have no complaints. It takes a while to get into, especially for a long time fan of the Brand New, but once it happens, you begin to appreciate it for what it is and the progression that has made its way from the pop punk beginnings to the sprawling and even haunting hard alternative rock of the present. I'm more interested to see where the band goes from this point than I am in any other musical current event. Expand

    First time i heard the album i hated it! But seriously NORO got stuck in my head a long with a few other songs... It has a sound that grows on you. You notice something different each time you listen to a song! Good but has its flaws.

  1. Brand New may not be completely comfortable with the slow stuff, but Daisy's willingness to experiment is what makes the album so interesting, even as its furious rock songs continue to pack a punch.
  2. It's hard for many Brand New superfans to admit, but it's entirely possible that the band simply wrote a good album this time around, not a great one.
  3. Not so much a cohesive statement as an investigation of future stylistic destinations.
