Brand New

“The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me”

4 out of 5 stars

As is typical of Brand New, several tracks on this album end in instrumental screeches that make you wonder why the band is so intent on making fans’ ears bleed. More important though is why fans (me included) will still give the band rave reviews while wiping the blood from the sides of our faces. […]
