    I don't understand what everyone is saying here. This album is crap, I keep listening to it trying to see if it'll grow on me and it doesn't. I think it's just so artsy and esoteric that everyone is like "I don't get it, it has to be good." There's no flow to the album, no structure, and the songs all sound mashed together like they were written in 10 I don't understand what everyone is saying here.

Their voices don't sound natural and I agree with the reviewer that said they sound just like Modest Mouse. All I could think of when I heard it was "whoops." Fail. Expand

  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.
