    While it wouldn't be entirely out of line to align Brand New's second album DEJA ENTENDU with contemporaneous offerings by such West Coast emo-punk types as Rufio, et al, it would be a bit of a mental shortcut. The fact is that while DEJA ENTENDU has no shortage of blaring, punky guitar riffs, battleship-heavy drum pounding, and harried, sore-throat vocals, there's another level to the band's sound. When they're not shouting and thrashing, Brand New are eminently capable of hushed, melodic vocals, atmospheric guitar textures, and relatively complex song structures. They've got their dynamic shifts down too, as they easily maneuver back and forth between the two extremes throughout the album.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (12/25/03, p.104) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Best Albums of 2003" - "...DEJA ENTENDU brings an uncommon artistry and bitter tongue to emo anthems..."
    Entertainment Weekly (8/8/03, p.74) - "...Frontman Jesse Lacey seems less interested in pummeling the listener with hooks than hooking you with carefully crafted dynamics and tempo shifts that add emotional heft to his sensitive-guy crooning..." - Rating: B+
