Sound — 10
The Used are a great band. The sound is sometimes in your face awesome or poetic. Blue and Yellow sounded so good. On my own is an awesome acoustic track. Branden Steineckert is a good guitarist. The drums and bass also add a good mix to the sound

The lyrics are either a hit or miss. A lot of them are hits though. Bert Mccracken screams so good. From the scream on the first track Maybe Memmories to the hidden song on the last track he sounds so crazy. The best part is the scream in a box full of sharp objects.
Overall Impression — 10
The Used first albulm is excellent. Bert Mccracken is so frickin awesome. I love the way he screams. The band sounds great on this albulm. If it was stolen i'd definitely buy it again. The top 5 tracks are: Maybe Memmories,Buried Myself Alive,The Taste of Ink, Blue and Yellow, and On My Own. This one bad ass cd. Buy it. Hope to see them at Project Revoulution.
