  1. A quantum leap above not only Brand New's prior work... but beyond anything that any band in this scene are currently creating. [Jan 2007, p.129]
  2. The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me is the completion of their pop-punk molting process and one of the best surprises -- that isn't really a surprise at all -- to come out of 2006.
  3. Their third effort finds the four-piece twisting confessional post-punk into something startling, brash, and exhilarating.

    I'm just voting to counter G A's vote. G A obviously either likes MCR or didn't listen to the album.

    This record is my favorite album of all time. When I listen to it, I feel as though Jesse Lacey has sliced open my mind and spilled into it aThis record is my favorite album of all time. When I listen to it, I feel as though Jesse Lacey has sliced open my mind and spilled into it a pitcher filled with raw emotions of his own that I've never experienced before and that no one could fully comprehend unless they had heard it for themselves. When I heard this album live, the feelings of simultaneous depression and euphoria were unmatched and nearly indescribable. It may not be a happy record but it is genuine perfection. 10/10 recommend to all. Full Review »
