Ok, despite knowing and being a casual fan of the Used for quite a while I only really got into them with their "In love and death" album, which is all well, but going back and buying this prooves they've started to parody themselves.
This album has much more raw aggression (Bulimic, Maybe memories, The full box of sharp objects) than their latter material, whilst somber songs like "Blue and Yellow" don't feel out of place at all.
Basically they're the best at their game, everybody knows about all this "Emo post hardcore" jibber jabber, this band just do it better than the rest.
My advice is if you've only heard more recent material this album is what it's all about. Do it!

I make a point of borrowing the first CD of a band i think i'll like so i'll hear their less polished, older stuff before the newer, much more stuff, but it was completely different with the Used, unlike with other bands like My Chemical Romance. At first, my friend sent me to a site with the music video of All That I've Got and i liked it, i even remembered the tune completely the next day (which never happens). I planned to buy their first album, but a friend gave me her In Love and Death CD and i instantly fell in love with it, it was exactly what i like in music! The tunes were catchy, the lyrics powerful and the overall effect was mind-blowing. With that as the second album, i was even more curious to the first album, even more so when i saw a video of Buried Myself Alive and thought how good it was for a first album song. Upon getting it, i was completely shcoked hwo good the songs were for their first album and i loved it! Taste of Ink and Blue and Yellow are my faves, but the whole CD was just so inspiring and fantastic, i haven't been able to stop listening to it for two weeks! This is a fantastically rewarding CD, particularly if you loved their second album. Just like IN Love and Death, the tunes are catchy and the lyrics are beautiful. It's well worth it!!

The Used has the best mixture of songs going. This album contains hard songs and soft songs and ones in between.
All 12 songs are brilliant what more is there to say? A Box Full Of Sharp Objects is one of the best songs ever and all the others are so close to its greatness. The used havn't been over played here in the UK so not many people know them but we call these people unlucky. This album contains passion and hard rock and blends them into one mother of an album. I was fortunate enough to see them live at the astoria and they were also amazing there. A band that plays well live and has a great album deserves to go far. SO BUY THIS!!!

These guys are up there.

This album is one of my favorites. The Used have been one of my favorite bands for a while now and the first album I heard from them was In Love and Death (another amazing record). This album is raw and aggresive yet it has beautiful songs like Blue and Yellow and On My Own. Seen them live and they give an amazing performance and Bert's voice has got to be one of my favorites. all the songs sound different. my favorites have to be Say Days Ago (about bert taking meth, a lot of it's screaming but i thinks it's an amazing song.), Poetic Tragedy (took me a while to like the song. the lyrics are genius and overall great song), On My Own (a song Quinn wrote about feeling alone etc. i didn't like the screaming near the end of the song initially but i love it now) and of course Blue and Yellow (about Bert and Quinn's relationship. the colors representing the two of them and "it's all in how you mix the two". i love the bridge and chorus of the song. overall, beautiful song. completely different from the screaming and aggression but it fit's right in.)

this album is def. worth it.

I heard about The Used from my friend, and she told me to check out a few of their songs. I instantly fell in love with them, especially Blue and Yellow, which is my favourite song in the world. Its much less polished than In Love and Death and much more aggressive. In turn, they're both going to stay two of my favourite albums for a very long time to come!

Orem, Utah seems to be a highly unlikely place for a punk screamo band to emerge from, especially seeing as the town has a strict Mormon basis. Despite the unlikelihood of a band emerging from there it’s happened and they are in the shape of The Used, a four piece consisting of Bert McCracken, Quinn Allman, Jeph Howard and Branden Steineckert, Vocals, Guitar, Bass and Drums respectively, are a breath of fresh air to the alternative music scene, although they haven’t pioneered any new musical ideas, there is a definite sense of life, enthusiasm and pain in their songs.
This raw emotion is laid bare for all to feel and hear and feel it you do through McCracken’s soaring and varied vocals, clever lyrics and Allman’s beautifully constructed guitar pieces.
‘The Taste of Ink’ is a fantastic example of the skills that this band holds, opening with a simple guitar riff and McCracken’s declaration of ‘is it worth it can you even hear me?’ the song quickly blends to thumping drums and heart felt lyrics building into a crescendo of pure emotional outlet. The album continues to gain strength from other songs such as ‘buried myself alive’ which blends melodic verses with a chorus of ‘if you want me back you’re gonna have to ask nicer than that’. ‘Poetic tragedy’ is a raw song about loneliness and the temptation to return to drug abuse, something which plagued McCracken before the formation of The Used. Every one of the songs is set perfectly to their instruments and it is this combination that makes the Used such an exhilarating band.
