weakest of the Used's albums

This album is good but it has lost the Used feeling. The old used songs kinda had a sort of meaning but these are just songs with no message or giving a feeling of what Bert feels. it still got some good songs and still got a good mix. Get the other albums before this one!

Lies for Liars

a solid effort by The Used. to be honest, i've never heard much of their stuff before this album (Except for a single or two). i heard "The Bird and The Worm" once, and it was one of the most amazing songs i'd heard in a long time. it reminded me of a Danny Elfman score. I saw this album in an offer for "2 for £10" so i decided i would pick it up, based on one song, and the awesome artwork. I was regretting this decision until i put it on. it's a relatively short album, which wins points in my book, and most of the songs were good. (to be honest, the three ballads didn't really offer anything different to each other, so i'm not a fan of those ones.) however, songs like "Hospital", "Wake the Dead", and "The Ripper" are fantastic songs. in fact, "Hospital" sends chills down my spine because of the atmosphere it creates. in the middle of the song when the singer puts on a strange voice and starts screaming still creeps me out. all in all, fantastic album, with fantastic artwork.

weakest used album so far
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 28/03/2008 21:25:02
i agree with the review above, buy the other two albums first. The self titled first album is amazing, one of my favourite albums ever. this album was a huge dissapointment, one good song, pretty handsome awkward the rest is very average. in saying that it has grown on me, and if you love the used, its worth a listen, it has its moments, but i would deffinately suggest the other two albums, or even the live album/dvd's before buying this.

For a start, Panic! at the Disco have nothing on The Used! So don't listen to that review! This isn't the best Used album, but it is certainly a turn up for the books since the last one. All of the synthy-electro stuff is written by Bert (vocals). No bands albums are the same so therefore bands will evolve. The Used are largely unsung for their talent and if you buy this album you will see why. Some good heavy, fast paced rock for your veins, with some well thought out love songs. Every band has them, even the most heavy of bands. So don't slate The Used for having them.
All in all, a good, rounded album by a very good band. If you like this, you'll love the first album. That is a must have!

50% the used 50% using other peoples sound
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 25/02/2008 00:31:18
i'm all for bands changing, maturing and so on... but blatently taking your sound from someone else... c'mon!
from track one this album sets off the exact sama as the last used albums. fast and explosive, but suddenly they have patches of dance-rock and vocal cuts and.. wait... this is all like panic! at the disco suddenly.
singles: 'pretty handsome' and 'the bird and worm' are back to back. can't stress the "lets sound like danny elfman meets panic at the disco with a hint of the used" in there on 'the bird and the worm' and to be honest from there its all a bit dull, not lifeless but just drifts into the background.
track 4 is a very normal "please don't leave" song...
gah, its hard to review, three stars

BUY THE OTHER TWO ALBUMS!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/12/2007 05:28:28
i really was dissapointed with this album. theres nothing to this album that appeals to me. for a start...the single The Bird And The Worm is shocking. such a boring song and a huge let down. the only decent song is pretty handsome awkard. Also liar liar the lyrics are shocking. don't get me wrong i love the other 2 albums they are amazing but this one doesn't do it for me. i suppose its down to opinion.

Must have album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/07/2007 19:43:27
Definately the best album I have bought in a long time. I have always been a fan of The Used and personally I think this is the best album they have done so far. I can't stop listening to it and my personally favourite would be ''Pretty Handsome Awkward.''
Definately worth buying, I love it!

The older album is a alot better, its more catchy ! this album has got some good bits, but the songs are a bit daft and bert has gone over the top with the shouting !!! the best songs on it are bird and the worm and earthquake. Just dig your old album out instead !
