Biography

The Used emerged flipping two middle fingers at what passed for the rock n’ roll status quo while snatching platinum, gold and silver certifications in North America, Europe and Australia and kicking open the doors of MTV and the Top 10.

Now freed of the shackles of corporate bureaucracy and even the limitations of geography (half the band now lives abroad), The Used is creating ... Read more in Amazon's The Used Store

Editorial Reviews

First album? Gold. CD+DVD? Gold. Since the release of its critically acclaimed self-titled debut in mid-2002, The Used has quickly become a musical powerhouse. Now, with In Love And Death, the band's second album, The Used has truly found its voice - honest, uncompromising, loud and strong.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Sound, But Still The Same Great Band November 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
When The Used released their debut in 2002, they won me and many people over very quickly with their own quirky blend of pop and hardcore, and helped usher in, whether you like it or not, the current "screamo" trend. However, The Used have enough originality and talent at their disposal to avoid being painted into a corner, so when their second album "In Love & Death" comes around, it's no surprise that it sounds little like their debut. The band has matured in plenty of ways. For starters, the songwriting has shifted a bit. On the first album, they were a band full of young kids who were starving to taste some success. On this release, we have more of a loose concept album full of songs dealing with the subject of both love and death. The songs range from brutal ("Sound Effects & Overdramatics") to harmonious ("All That I've Got) and the band effortlessly handles each moment with glorious soundscapes that speak just as loudly as vocalist Bert McCracken. Songs like "Let It Bleed" and "Listening" tread a similar path that the debut did, but other songs like "Hard To Say" and "All That I've Got" delve into The Used's knack for pure melody that they toyed around with on previous songs like "On My Own" and "Blue & Yellow." "I Caught Fire" is the catchiest of the bunch, combining all The Used ingredients, and would make a perfect second single. "Take It Away," the first track & first single is absolutely brilliant and addictive (and also features production by Danny Lohner of Nine Inch Nails). The album as a whole is perfect. It definitely lives up to the standard set by the debut. I was a bit skeptical at first, and it took me a few listens to fully warm up, but it pays off. Give this album it's fair chance. The Used are easily the best in their game, and we can only imagine what tricks they will pull out for us on their third album.

it's hard to produce a "5 stars" album, especially when your debut album is already a "5 stars", because of the expectation of the audiences is extremely high. "In Love & Death" is the follow up of the The Used overwhelming self-titled debut, which they pretty much kept their own style, combine style-merging rhythm with emotional energetic vocal, turn out to be another album full of interesting arrangement and powerful melodies, "Light With A Sharpened Edge", "Hard To Say", "I Caught Fire" seems to be more melodic tunes, whereas others like "Sound Effects And Overdramatics", their first-single "Take It Away", "I'm A Fake" will be more on their harder, emo-ish side,

i personally enjoy listening to it very much, it deserve a nomination fot the album of year.....

5.0 out of 5 stars BURT IS MY HERO March 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If it's any supirse, this CD is amazing. Although it doesn't sound quite the same as their self titled CD it definetly shows maturity. The Song I Caught Fire is probably the best track along with Sound Effects and Over Drematics. If you don't already own this and like their self titled... You need to pick it up. You wont be dissapointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different, but not terrible October 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Most fans of the first album liked the band's screaming, slightly death metal edge and provacative lyrics. With the second album, the lyrics are still fairly evocative, but the band's style has changed dramatically. I really like the second album, but I like for a whole different set of reasons than I liked the first. Love or Death is a lot more pop-sounding than the first album--much more in the mainstream emo-type realm. If you're looking for the hardcore sounds of their self-titled album, you probably won't enjoy this one, but if you like Bert's voice and you're into the emo thing, you'll love Love and Death.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not great, not garbage, but still above average October 11, 2004
By William
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion this album is not as bad as the majority of reviewers say. I think what really happened for this album is The Used failed in making good soft songs as they did for the first record (the taste of ink, poetic tragedy, blue and yellow). Moreover, they didn't manage to make great hard songs with emotions (maybe memories, say days ago, bulimic, buried myself alive, noise and kisses, A box full of sharp object).

This results in a more or less boring album. However, we must ask ourselves if we would have tought the same if The Used haven't previously made a masterpiece album as their self titled. I personaly think their first album just set the step way to high for these guys.

There are some good songs, some average songs and some lousy songs.

Masterpiece songs:

-none

Great songs:

- Let it bleed

- I'm a fake

Good songs:

- Take it Away

- I caught fire

- All that I've got

- Cut up angels

average songs:

- Listening

- Light with the sharpened edge

- Sound effects and overdramatics

lousy songs:

- Yesterday's feelings

- It's hard to say

garbage:

- Lunacy fringe

Final word:

The Used - The Used 1000000/10

In love and Death - The Used 7/10

5.0 out of 5 stars the used review November 7, 2005

The Used review by: Mr. Roman

The Used are a very awesome band from Utah. The album "In Love and Death" is great. The lyrics can make an old lady scream and their powerhouse guitar style can make Ozzy Osborne, the `Prince of Darkness', want to listen to them. I first noticed The Used when I went to their concert with My Chemical Romance, and they kicked some serious butt. I couldn't believe that this new band was so awesome.

The best songs on the album `In Love and Death' are: "Listening", "Take it Away", "Lunacy Fringe", "All That I've Got", and "Let it Bleed". The lyrics and style of the song "Let it Bleed" makes it unbelievably addictive and it just makes you want to sing it at the top of your lungs. They are sort of like a better version of Billy Talent and have a more punkish sound than My Chemical Romance.

If you want a band that can make you feel better on a bad day, well then listen to The Used because they can relate to your problems especially if you are a teenager because the songs have the same sort of outlook as a teenager. The song "All That I've Got" is about appreciating what you have because you might not always get what you want. As Tesla would say, "you don't always get what you need, you don't always get what you want". The band, The Used, is a very awesome band to watch in concert and to hear at home. If you are young like me go and buy the album and you wont be disappointed because they are like Kiss.... they rock and roll all night and party everyday.

Great album, really liked it. "Take it Away, All I've Got" are my favorite songs of the album. Has some mix of punk, rock and some heaviness in various songs. Really great album.
