doing a discog binge and my feelings on this and vulnerable basically completely switched



this albums like probably not good but they get to flex their pop sensibilities which results in an album of mostly earworms that are at least pleasant to listen to when your brain is off



vulnerable is so fucking bad tho lol

Ok, I will check this at some point to compare
but
Shine is a huge guilty pleasure, Hands and Faces kinda slams a little bit, Hurt No One is classic Used, Now That You're Dead is kinda fun trash and I guess This Fire is ok

Damn never checked the Canyon beyond a couple of ok singles either :[ and yeah lol Hurt No One is the only one of those songs I'd seriously defend, think they nailed their kitsch emo/entertaining rock split there

ill give that song another try i guess but it felt as lazy and uninspired as the rest of the album but that could just be track placement or smth ill listen to it on its own i guess and see if it holds up



canyon is tight easily the best since artwork also even tho its production is kinda wack its tight to hear them not with feldy



reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally wish they werent going back to him for this new album literally any other producer would be better (also they def shouldnt have kicked justin but at this point i just wish justin eventually comes back to saosin for whatever they do next)

The Canyon has grown to become my favorite Used album, and also just one of my favorite albums ever. For me, it's that good.



I feel like Vulnerable was trying to repeat the successes of Lies for the Liars. On Imaginary Enemy I do get that they're able to practice their pop sensibilities but that doesn't mean it's entertaining. Half of it is boring, lifeless tracks that don't demonstrate the energy level that The Used are known for.



That being said there are a couple of bangers here. I still dig Revolution, Cry, Make Believe, Evolution and the t/t. And my god Kenna Song is still complete garbage.
