My girlfriend listens to them so I think she will be excited to hear about a new album. I haven't really listened to them, but I think there is a song on Guitar Hero III I liked playing.

As awesome as their last release is, I'm hoping this one isn't as much of a downer. Either way, I'm stoked.

I wonder if all the lyrics will read like Jeff Mangum b-sides again?!

...wah wah

In truth, Brand New is the scene band I just can't shake. I'm excited.

Having never listened to them I don't understand the Jeff Magnum reference.

It's long been commented that Lacey clearly got ahold of In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, some Radiohead records and some post-No Wave Noise Rock albums and tried to synthesize all his favorite artists into a somewhat contrived sound that we heard on their last LP. It's the best they've sounded, but it does come across as a somewhat diluted Sonic Youth-by-way-of-early '90s indie-by-way-of-Neutral Milk Hotel. Jesse Lacey's empty metaphors also are very reminiscent of Mangum's patented lyric writing style.

Thanks, I guess I will just keep on listening to those other bands. :)

I thought The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me was pretty good.
