Until last year I wasn't really much of a fan of Brand New. I'd only heared there sort of punk rocky stuff off their first album "Your Favourite Weapon". I'd been sort of dismissive of that stuff and unfairly so. When I listen to it now I can get past the more childish aspects of the songs and appreciate that there are actually some really good lyrics. My love of the two later albums have given me a new appreciation for their first one. The second album "Deja Entendu" was a really big shift in style. It sounded a lot more mature and has some really great tracks. The lyrics, again are very solid and it's just a great album to listen through. Their most recent album is the one that I love the most though. "The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me" was again a big jump in maturity. When you compare songs off this album to a song on "Your Favourite Weapon" it's almost hard to believe they are the same band. I think my favourite track on this album is "Jesus Christ". It's sad but also very moving, it's the kind of melacholy I like in songs anyway. Are there any other fans of this band here? I know some people feel the opposite of me as in they prefer the old album over the new stuff. Does anyone else feel that way?
