All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Brand New's ability to jump from quiet moments to grating, full-throttle freakouts has been the centerpiece of several albums, and the Long Island boys revisit that formula once again with Daisy. The band's fourth LP begins rather formally, with a classical piano playing beneath a female's prim and proper vocals. Drums, screams, and squelching guitars eventually gatecrash the piano recital, but the effect has lost some of its luster by now, and it's not jarring as much as it is familiar. Yet despite Daisy's embrace of old habits, the band's rage is still fairly convincing, and a handful of slower songs hint at what may lie ahead for future albums. "Bed" is quietly ...

Drums, screams, and squelching guitars eventually gatecrash the piano recital, but the effect has lost some of its luster by now, and it's not jarring as much as it is familiar. Yet despite Daisy's embrace of old habits, the band's rage is still fairly convincing, and a handful of slower songs hint at what may lie ahead for future albums. "Bed" is quietly sinister, a minor-key ballad more devoted to nuance and suspense than pure aggression, and "You Stole" is downright gorgeous at points, its fuzzy guitars finding some sort of connection between My Bloody Valentine and '50s surf rock. Brand New may not be completely comfortable with the slow stuff, but Daisy's willingness to experiment is what makes the album so interesting, even when its furious rock songs struggle to pack a punch.
Spin Magazine
The sound is old-fashioned, but the fury is fresh.
Entertainment Weekly
Sounds like a revolution...an investigation of future stylistic destinations.

    A Must!

    For the true Brand New fans, you'll love this in spite of the fact that it's so different from their previous three albums. For new Brand New fans, this is a great album to start with - a little moody, mellow sounds, yet with intensity and massive amounts of feeling. I am a true Brand New fan and I have a fondness for this album.

    I really do enjoy this CD. Its new, refreshing and well... Brand New is just amazing in general. However, one knock I do have on this CD is that it is its lyrics are not as deep and... Thouching I guess you can say. They have developed their musical talent though. Drums play a bigger role, guitar has increased to 3 chords a song instead of 2.. (joke). I would recommend this CD to past Brand New fans and someone who wants to listen to Soft and yet Hard at times music. Hope this helped.
