Brand New: The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me

9 Aug

This is the album in which, under smoother instrumental blending, Brand New’s mourning, longing, reflection and rage come together into one potent, cohesive response to, as the album’s title suggests, the clashing coexistence of evil and mercy in and around us all.

The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me is one of the rare masterpieces that is the “no-skip” album, in which every track could stand alone as a brilliant piece of work.

While “Degausser” cathartically rips at me with what sounds like a children’s choir screaming along, “Jesus Christ” is my standout favourite track.
