Well, as Jesse, the reviewer for the previous album from the Brokedowns put it, it’s just far too easy to look at the Brokedowns and point out the comparisons to other bands. Unfortunately, I’m far from being a professional writer or a credible staff member of Punknews to come up with any other possible ways to describe this band. The fact is the Brokedowns draw a tremendous amount of influence from Dillinger Four. They also sound similar to wonderful contemporaries such as Toys That Kill and Off with Their Heads. Hell, they also draw in a great influence from the likes of Chicago’s the Arrivals. It’s hard to ignore these facts and they’re very simple for me to state. However, there is a significant difference from being just another rip-off band of this sound and being a band that can that add their own personal touch to this sound and spawn off into something that’s completely enjoyable on its own. New Brains for Everyone is proof of this.
