I wish more bands did AOL Sessions these days. I always enjoy watching the performances

I don't understand why the album is sitting at 20 on the itunes chart, shouldn't they easily be in the top 10

they did not have pre-orders for the deluxe in US I though so that may have some impact.

Also it has been a while since they released anything big. This album may not do as well in sales but it is still their best work (fantastic).

This is just the perfect kinda pop oriented pop rock. Also just gonna say it since I saw the charts and I know they reflect sales but Kids In The Streets> Some Nights. Both bands are good but this is the difference between a great album and good album. They really should switch places but I guess Kids In The Street does not have a big single sounding song just a album full of memorable ones.

Lol what is Mike Kennerty wearing in the title track video.

MJB12 03/27/12 11:31 AM

Those were some solid, solid performances.

SpyKi 03/27/12 12:04 PM

Indeed! I would've really enjoyed seeing gonzo and/or walk over me more than move along again, but I know with aol sessions artists always throw an oldie in there

Kids In The Street is really, really good.
And I'm not an AAR fan...glad they came out with a solid release.

MTGenocyde 03/27/12 12:47 PM

Such a solid new album by them. I'm blown away by it. Anyways, always enjoy these sessions.

Then that is strange. I know the album is getting a good response. It would be a shame if it diid not sell well.

guitarguy211 03/27/12 02:07 PM

These performances are pretty good! The new stuff hasnt really grown on me yet, but its still good to see the band doing something!

Alligator Blood 03/27/12 02:08 PM

I could never tell in the past because he looked quite normal, but Tyson.. he's genuinely a little insane isn't he. Solid performances though, and amazing new record.

I think he's only recently got this weird, probably why the album's so good. Weird people make good music.

The Used did have pre-orders for the deluxe edition in US iTunes.

Yeah, I'd say so, you watch the tournado performances and even in shows of the last song music video you can see his goofiness coming out, as well as a performance he guested on for motion city soundtrack, I love it, he's just having fun

j4callen 03/27/12 08:08 PM

I think this album is pretty solid. Love that they didn't try to write an obvious hit. Some pretty decent substance for a pop rock band. Always thought they wrote some jams. Great vocals too.

tmathews 03/27/12 08:31 PM

can anyone rip these videos to put on an iphone or something? or at least suggest how haha, great stuff

ChrisCanberg 03/28/12 11:27 AM

That looks a lot like Matt Rubano on bass...great performances.

Ryan Gardner 03/28/12 01:27 PM

Sound great
