|At The Bottom|

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.
RileyW.Sep 23, 2009The best album to date. The hardcore screaming... everything about it is just awesome!
ZacharyA.Sep 25, 2009This is their best album. It's dense, noisy, but beautiful at the same time. good to know that their releasing music for themselves.

The album is home to some of the band's most aggressiveCriminally underrated, this unique album from Brand New is easily one of the best.
The album is home to some of the band's most aggressive songs such as "Vices" and "Gasoline", but it balances it out quite nicely with loads of slower, and just as great, songs. Jesse's screams sound as great as his soft singing, and he finds a great balance in the album. The guitars suit their song, with some great riffs, and the bass is as heavy as Brand New ever went.
The lyrics are also another highlight, and the album somehow manages to be even more angry, dark and despondent than 'The Devil and God' and by "Noro" he seems to have lost faith in everything. It's as exceptional as ever.
A few songs on the album are a bit... worse than the rest, not to say they're bad, or anywhere near that, but they just don't compare. Tracks 4-6 are certainly good, hell I really like "You Stole", but they're just not on the level that this album and this band usually offers.
Overall, this is one of the darkest and angriest albums the band has. It's unfairly underrated for coming in the middle of their two biggest albums, and also being their last one for 8 years. But believe me, this album is quite the trip.
Favourites: At the Bottom, Noro, Vices
