iTunes Review

Gore, guts, viscera — it’s spattered all over the tracks on the Used’s Artwork. The Utah-based quintet's fourth album immerses itself in emotional carnage, conveyed by a sound fusing early-‘70s British metal with latter-day hardcore. As before, singer Bert McCracken manages to infuse his vocal eruptions with more sincerity than most of his peers. Tracks like the maniacal “Blood On My Hands,” the bleak “Sold My Soul,” and the harrowing “Meant to Die” seethe with inward-directed rage, driven home by Quinn Allman’s lead guitar slashes. The band rides swells and eddies of negative energy, emerging from the roar of “Men Are All the Same” and “On the Cross” like battered warriors. Naturally, the love songs here have a harsh edge, though “Kissing You Goodbye” manages to actually sound pretty as well as tormented. The band achieves particular grandeur on “The Best of Me,” tempering moody passages with bursts of all-out screamo abandon. Overall, Artwork gushes with unquenchable rage, yet contains enough tunefulness to entice the faint of heart.

The Used Recycled and Redone

The Used is a great band. With this new release they take all of the old sounds and blend them perfectly. There is some of their harder sounds from the first album shown on songs like "Blood on My Hands" and "The Best of Me" along with the pop sound from their second album on songs like "Watered Down" and "Kissing You Goodbye". They also bring in their newer sound from Lies for the Liars on songs like "Empty With You" and "Come Undone". Not only are there recycled sounds but the Used brings in their new matured sound in too without dissapointment. Another good thing about Artwork is that there are no filler songs that are there just to fill the empty space...every song is good and though it takes a few listens to get the full extent of the album, Artwork is The Used's most developed and best album to date.

Best Album I've bought in Years

I am a big fan of The Used, but even I have to admit that their albums have been steadily declining in quality since their original self-titled album. I went out and bought this CD yesterday with a little bit of hesitance, but can confidently say this is as good or better than their first album. I have not been this impressed with an album since "The Black Parade" by My Chemical Romance. This is one of the few albums I've ever owned that I can listen to every single song and enjoy them all. I honestly can say I don't have a least favorite track on this album because they are all such entertaining songs and so well written. That is where I believe they succeeded the most with this album is that they managed to create an entire album full of potential singles instead of a few great songs and some filler. This is without a doubt the #1 album of 2009 in my opinion and I would recommend it to anybody who likes alternative rock or rock in general because there's a good chance you'll find a song on this album you like. I give this a 100/100
