I've never really listened to this band before, but really like Instant Gratification. Where would be the best place to go next?

Lucabomb is the only section of any piece of music that has ever genuinely scared me. Then dat closing guitar riff- awesome song.

Never Trust a Happy Song by Grouplove.

I accidentally play the melody of Tongue Tied all the time when I'm noodling on guitar, so the song's constantly stuck in my head. I didn't even know what the...

Would love for Dallon or their new guitarist to have a more active role in the songwriting. I really do enjoy "The Brendon Urie Show" and I don't think he's made any terrible missteps (Too Weird to...

They'll have done all the growing up they needed to do, lived through the whole cycle of discovering who they are. I think if they tried to take it any further than that, they'd be doing a...

I think he's heading that way. Daisy and TDAG were mostly about condemnation- I think an album about redemption would be the logical follow-up.

They're not lyrics like Jesse or Vin would have wrote SIX YEARS AGO- but times have changed and they've grown up a lot. It's not unreasonable to think either of their styles might have evolved, in a...

My very first band was a terrible, terrible metalcore band. We sold more tickets to our second show than any other band on the bill, so we won the "honor" of opening for these guys, way back in the...

Such a talented guy.

But such a dick.

There's nothing that I like about this song at all. Worst lyrics, worst melody, worst music bed on the album. Whatever. Good luck to both of them.

I started listening to Brand New about 3 years ago, and from my perspective, Deja and YFW don't hold up very well. Without nostalgia, they feel very much like a product of their times. That doesn't...

I liked the live video. I love the recorded version. Sounds great through headphones. Awesome energy.

Never noticed that about Gasoline and Noro. What a funny quirk.

I think Daisy is absolutely a masterpiece, though, and Brand New's best album by a fair margin. It's their most well put together,...

Coincidentally listened to Whisper War today. Still a couple nice jams on there.

Based on what I'm hearing here, it's not my favorite Brand New song, but it's much better than the new material we weren't getting for the last six years.

Imagine it to be a fucking banger at the...

Already heard this on my local alternative station twice since it premiered. Excited for something like this to be big.

Have other things I want to do but I'm scared that if I stop reading this thread and walk away from my computer I'm going to be abducted by the guys on the cover of TDAG.

Is that irrational?

I like the album on first listen, but there's literally never been a John Feldmann album that didn't eventually grate on my nerves- I don't see this one being any different. Fingers crossed.

Jeff came through the line at the place I work a few months ago. I said "You play guitar in Cute Is What We Aim For, right?" He said "Yep." Then I said, "I hope you have a good day," and gave him...

I've never heard a Feldmann-produced album with staying power. They're all uncomfortably perfect, overproduced, generically written... I get genuinely bummed out when I see his working with a band...

It's interesting that most of these band's most influential albums aren't actually their best. All the discussion of TTTYG or FUCT is good, but as a cohesive whole, I think Folie a Deux is many...

I desperately wanted to like the title track before the album came out, but I just couldn't. Now I look forward to the bridge every time the song comes on in the car. So fun to dance and shout...

Sat down for a half hour and tried to rank, but I can hardly narrow it down to a top 3 from each album, which makes a top 10 for their career nearly impossible. Can't say enough good things about...
