the_used_fan, come out, come out wherever you are!
Thinking about going to their In Love and Death show this month. That would be an awesome nostalgia trip.
Where you at the_used_fan? Join us!
The_used_fan hasn't yet been spotted in 'is natural habitat,crikey!..let's keep 'en eye out fo' 'Im.
So... The Used playing ILAD or Basement and Turnstile? Which show should I go to???
I miss the_used_fan
BTW, did you listen to the live acoustic album already? It came out today.
Forgot about that live album. Listening now. Pretty excited!
Honestly super interested in what new music is going to sound w/ Justin in the band. I saw them at Taste of Chaos last year and was actually blown away at how great of a show it was
This new live CD is actually kind of re-sparking my interest in them. Of course, it's mostly their old songs but he sounds real good.
I wish I still liked these guys. I remember going to see them at local shows in Provo, Utah. I just couldn't get in to anything after In Live and Death. And their live act sounds pretty rough with Jeph screaming.... I dunno I always listen to their newest efforts in hopes of liking it though
Last 2 albums have been so so but Artwork is a solid album imo.
I would even say it's their third best behind the first 2 records.
I'll give it another spin and see if it sinks in this time!
the_used_fan is missing out!
Love the first two albums and some of the 3rd.
Is Artwork worth revisiting? It used to get a bit of praise on AP.
Agreed with Artwork being their 3rd best.
My favorite is Vulnerable.
Does Bert scream on Artwork?
Tbh talking about it here has made me realize I need to go back and revisit it myself and see if I still remember it as fondly but yeah he does on some songs but not very much.
Artwork is pretty under rated imo
Vulnerable may be my personal fave but I think Lies For The Liars is their best when it comes to songwriting and production etc.
Liar liar pants on fire
Cool to hear that. I also think it's a good record (despite not being among my favorites by them). Which songs do you like in it?
It's a very special record to me, it has a positive message that I needed to hear at the time.
My favorites are Hands and Faces, Shine, I Come Alive and Together Burning Bright probably.
Agree with all the Artwork love, I've been behind that album since it dropped!
I'm listening to Live & Acoustic At The Palace right now, it's fine enough, but I think acoustic albums should probably not be live, there's a lot of crowd in this one
Re-listening to Artwork almost done and yes I def still stand behind my statement.
Sidenote: Berth is great and I normally don't like live CD's but I don't mind that one. I remember winning a contest on a site called EmotionalPunk I think it was back in the day and I won a copy of Berth and Lies for the liars but I never got them so lame.
