  1. Recovering emos Brand New have taken doing things their own way to the point of invisibility, but their journey into the widescreen ether continues with yet another breathtakingly accomplished record.
  2. Daisy may lack the immediate accessibility of Brand New's previous efforts, but once it grows on you, good luck getting it out of your head.

    The sound is old-fashioned, but the fury is fresh.
  4. While Daisy does have its share of issues, it is by no means a bad album. The fact is that it falls beneath Brand New’s lofty standards.
  5. 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.
  6. The quartet's fourth album avoids genre commonplaces with subtle shadings.
  7. Brand New confronts listeners with an impressive variety of sound and fury, but, taken as individual songs or as a cohesive album, Daisy wants for the type of overarching vision that would hold the drama together. That's frustrating, but then again, this is the type of fierce and aching rock that sounds best when one is frustrated. So maybe that's the point.

    The natural progression from TDAGARIM, brilliant album structure and songs such and Vices, Sink, In a Jar and the haunting Noro make this aThe 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 Collapse

    An extremely good album that needs time to grow. You may not enjoy it the first time through, but the 3rd and 4th listens kick you in the gut An extremely good album that needs time to grow. You may not enjoy it the first time through, but the 3rd and 4th listens kick you in the gut with great melodies, intricate and assaulting beats, and heartfelt vocals. Expand
