Just played that "first" min of the album thingy that was posted.    Holy crap that's bad And I like the used.  Seen them a few times back in day.

 

I was playing it and the wife's like what's that is that it sounds horrible. 

Just let me know if you need the contact info of a good divorce lawyer.

This thread is starting to annoy me. The whole “The Used sucks!” Thing was fine for a few posts but come on... it’s not like they’re Nickelback. I actually really like the new song and for the first time since Lies for The Liars I’m excited to hear the whole album. I’m also going to see them on Oct 28 with Glassjaw. They’re still so much fun live!

You are completely missing the point of everything. These threads aren't about The Used bashing, they are TUG threads. He spews nonsense and people discuss  how ridiculous every claim of his is in regards to the band. I am a Used fan in regards to their earlier works and Vulnerable, but everything he says about them being the best band in the universe and giving an album that isn't out a 10/10 is absolute horse shit.

This. What do you think the reason tug has those content awards in his signature bar for? Dude is toying with everyone, simply joking around and becoming the most popular user on the site. Hell, I'm not even mad, that's impressive. It's like the VC Reality Show every time a tug thread pops up or he comments on random other threads. 

 

Or...the dude seriously has a few issues, both emotionally and socially, and this site (and of course the Used) are his prime outlet...

 

Either way, I'm here. I'm waiting, popcorn in hand..

Let's not get carried away.  February 15th was probably a remarkably slow day for "VC lols", and he's got the same "award" listed twice.  Realistically, the dude has one shtick and gets to flex it when one particularly bad band shits on the VC carpet and drags it across the main board, every couple of years.  That's about it.

Shame on you. You missed an opportunity to give them 10 dollars more. That's really bad fan behavior.

For some reason I was unaware until now this album has 17 songs.  I mean, maybe there'll actually be a decent song or two with that many to choose from?

every song is like 5-6 minutes long too.  nearly 90 mins of music, 2 cd set. 4 sides of 2 vinylls.  its a masterpiece.

I got to hear an early release copy from a friend in the industry and I have to say this is probably the worst material almost any band has put out ever. Its 90 minutes too long and each song is 5-6 minutes longer than it should be. I spoke to Burt and he said "We are basically at a point in our career where we can put out anything and our fans will eat it up and say its amazing (LIKE TUG) so we just let our creative process take a back seat and just phone it in. "
