I think they would have been better off if they had, in some way or another, made it clear this wasn't brand new. I think most of the backlash has been because we kind of got stoked for this to be Brand New related and then it didn't happen so we're all disappointed now.

I don't believe so. When I found out Brian Lane was involved in the mystery, my first thought was, 'This is a side-project.' The only people who seemed to think it was Brand New were the ones who wanted it to be Brand New.
I thought it was Brand New related because Brian Lane was involved, and the return address listed on the side is the address that "Brand New" is registered at as a business so yes there was actually some indication, even to those who didn't come in to it thinking 'This is Brand New' that it was gonna be Brand New related. If they had not used Brian Lane's name or shown that address there wouldn't have been any real reason to believe it was them and thus would not have the "This was supposed to be Brand New" backlash.

Doesn't get much more Brand New "related" then having members of Brand New's side project
Right, but it's not Brand New and I'm not saying that this is anyway fair to the band but I do really believe that people (including myself at one point) thinking that this was Brand New (not just related but like a viral campaign for a new album) kind of set this up to be a disappointment. I like the album, and the viral campaign was fantastic, but there was a certain degree of let down when it wasn't a new album. It seems from some of the other threads that some people felt that disappointment a little harder and weren't able to separate that out from the music we actually got.
