These songs are so fucking terrible and for some reason that makes me sort of happy. Ever since Bert came out with that embarrassing diatribe blaming the label for the last album being bad and talking up how this one was going to be sooooo much better I anticipated the music proving him wrong. AND HERE IT IS!

Couldn't have said it better myself!

Decent songs after 1 listen each. "Shine" sounds a lot like something off Artwork, which I wasn't a big fan of. The stream quality of "Put Me Out" on the Hurley site is awful, I'll probably enjoy that one a lot more on the album. Sick guitar riff.

I'll still always love The Used because their first 3 albums were awesome, but I'll admit they have gone downhill.

it's nothing you have to admit. it's just fact.

"Shine" is the best track they've released so far though and it still isn't good.

fixed. And even that's generous. I'd say self-titled was awesome, ILAD was pretty good, and LFTL was the beginning of the end for this band

I feel like when he stopped screaming is when they started sounding bad. They lack all the aggression they had on the first few releases. I enjoyed how they'd have those rough/harder sounding songs then have one or two softer/pop like songs it balanced them well. They just aren't that good at writing pop sounding songs. Its not them. Its like Nirvana writing a powerpop album.

I never loved the Used. But they always manage to have 2-4 songs on each record that are great pop songs, surrounded by all sorts of mediocrity. Still waiting on the greatness from this album...

Enjoy the first two songs i heard (I Come Alive, Hands And Faces) but Shine is just... poor. Put Me Out seemed good, even if the quality is fucking abysmal.
Agree with whoever said the first two albums were great, but the last two were mainly average with one or two good songs hidden in there.
