Review Summary: Wonderful album, impressed, and worth the wait

If you were looking for the high school medleys of Your Favorite Weapon, this definitely isn’t it. The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me has shown that the third time really is the charm. Brand New’s third album, after a 3 year hiatus, has left their fans awed and floored with the album’s depth and intensity. In my opinion, TDAGARIM has the energy of their first album, yet the lyrics reflect the maturity of their 2003 album, Deja Entendu. All four members have grown in many aspects, and are no longer the young, high school quartet that many of us fell in love with.

Their songs’ lyrics speak of religion, love, and death, such as “Jesus Christ” and “Sowing Season (Yeah)”, and is something that all of us can relate to in one way or another. Watching Jesse Lacey perform their newest additions to their set list on stage, it almost seems like he is fighting the demons within himself for everyone to see.

When I listen to this album, there are so many emotions that are felt, but the one thing that I can say for sure is that this is one of my favorite albums of all time, and is definitely, in my opinion, the best to come out this year.

Album Rating: 3.5

I would suggest resubmitting this as a soundoff unless you'd like to expand on this review because I really don't feel you adequately justified giving this album a 5/5 rating. Basically the only things you've said are that the band has matured, there is diverse subject matter and a range of emotions conveyed, and that's better than their previous albums. IMO you need to delve deeper to fully justify it.

While what you wrote was interesting, you didnt write nearly enough.
I agree with Morrissey that you should probably use this as a sound off or expand more.
Okay none-the less (Y)

Horrible review; not because it was short; but the writing was fucking horrible.
