This clever Fueled By Ramen release features tracks from four bands -- three songs each from Midtown, Recover, Silent*Corporation, and Blueline Medic. While it suffers a bit from the groups' collective reliance on melodic hardcore and emo-ish pop-punk (it can occasionally be difficult for first-time listeners to tell them apart), New.Old.Rare will be a boon to fans for the very three reasons its title suggests. Australia's Blueline Medic turns in a bold cover of Tori Amos' "Precious Things" -- this version's by the numbers quiet/loud arrangement isn't remarkable, but frontman Donnie Dureau does effectively convey some of the tension and creeping uneasiness of the Amos original. The gravelly Dureau is also a dead vocal ringer for Jets to Brazil's Blake Schwarzenbach. Previously unreleased material includes an acoustic version of "Get It Together" from Midtown and Recover's hard-edged "Not a Word." While New.Old.Rare is pretty strong throughout, its best moments might come from Silent*Corporation, whose passionate and positive dueling vocals and energetic, chunky power chording during "Don't Look Back" and "Trapped in Me" keep things moving along at a breakneck, heartbreak-heavy pace.
