Brand New - Deja Entendu

Brand New's second full album is nothing short of genius. The band provides a harder edge to their pop-punk sound, and on some tracks border screamo. Tempering the faster-paced songs are more instrumental, lyrical based sounds that are placed ever-so-carefully among the track listing. Even with the disparity between song temps, the album flows effortlessly from start to end. This one is on my all-time list. Standout tracks: "The Quiet Things that No One Ever Knows," and "Play Crack the Sky." Rating: 10/10
