This much-lauded Long Island alterna-rock outfit broke through commercially 
 in 2006 with The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me. They don't match that record's thick, moody gloom on Daisy, but in an emo/punk scene currently crowded with bands pushing the production levels to 11, something sinewy sounds like a revolution. Frontman Jesse Lacey can scream; he also packs a poison-drip whisper. Shades of the Deftones, At the Drive-In, and Nine Inch Nails carve through the arrangements. Not so much a cohesive statement as an investigation of future stylistic destinations. B
