    If this is indeed the standard edition, not deluxe, I will be in awe

    I'm going to go ahead and predict a radio edit without that middle part

    Wow I'm really happy with this song. Huge step up from Imaginary Enemy imo.

    I like it - but there's something about the production that's not sitting right with my ears. Good song though. Super catchy so I dig it.

    This is pretty different for them, no? I actually really like it. 17 tracks and 79 minutes... these guys are going all out haha

    Really dig the new song. I expected half as much with Justin joining them, he is one talented dude!

    Something about the song does sound off at times production/mix wise not sure if it was the stream, going to listen with headphones in later.

    The album is long af though!
     
  14. I dig the artwork and the new song. I feel like it's the most mature song I've heard from them in a long ass time.

    You should be pleasantly surprised. It's best they've sounded in a long time imo.

    Also... "Selfies In Aleppo".



    Just thought that deserved an extra mention.

    Things have changed.

    Song is pretty good, but holy shit is the mixing terrible. The drums sound awful, and they're strangely placed in the mix, especially some of those fills.

    I feel like The Used is not the type of band who can pull off a 17 songs, 79 minutes album without it having a ton of filler tracks. But I'm hoping they prove me wrong though.

    I'm inclined to agree... but I also didn't think they could pull off a song this different and absolutely nail it, so maybe they'll surprise me again.

    This definitely showed some of Bert's MJ influence. It wasn't the kind of song I was expecting! I'll have to listen to it again, but I'll echo the same though that it's very catchy.
