Yeah I can understand that. Luckily Underoath didn't miss a beat without Aaron. Haha

Yeah they did man, I'm content with losing- Some Will Seek, and DTGL are spectacular. Underoath, like the Used, are done.

I really love the chorus a lot, but they screwed up the verses with the stupid electronic stuff and vocal effects. This had potential to be a great song.

Like someone else said, the second time through I like it better. This album might be a grower. I like all their albums, even though they've progressively gotten worse.

What the hell did I just listen to? Like everyone else said, the chorus is okay.. but the rest of it was painful.

After listening to this again I like the song itself more but those verses got raped. If they took out the deepest layer of vocals and just kept Bert wailing, it could've sounded fantastic.

I was looking at this on my phone while I was taking a dump. I went out of the stall to wash my hands after finishing and mistakenly left my phone in the stall, playing the song.

Despite it being a crowded day in the bathroom, no one else went for that empty stall - because it still sounded like someone was in there, shitting their brains out.
This is by far the funniest thing I have read in a really long time. I had to leave my computer at work and go somewhere else. Thanks for that.

1) I would probably like this a lot more if the production didn't remind me of that piece of shit Destroy Rebuild Until God Touchesmywang craptastic band. Shame on you John Feldmann.

2) As much as I'm not a fan of the new chord progressions they've been messing around with on the last few records, I gotta say that Jeph Howard is still one of the most exciting bassists in the 'scene'.

So overall, John Feldmann needs to stop producing, and this band needs to change its name to Jeph Howard & the Used.

I will have to agree with you on that one. Although I really enjoyed their last effort, Underoath will never be as successful without Aaron. Not necessarily because he was holding the band together, but more because the vocal dynamic is what made so many people latch onto the band in the first place. Now that it's gone, it just sounds like a better-ish version of every other heavy band out there. Just an opinion.

Their shows still sell and you're on page 8 of a thread about them where some people are even defending the "hated on AP" Artwork, so they're obviously not "done".

I don't get the abuse, this is better than a lot of music out there. At least it's not like funs. album which doesn't offer MUCH of their old style at all.

ugh. this is a perfect example of why feldmann ruins bands. imagine this song with clean production, no effects and the instruments actually sounding like instruments... it has the potential to be a good song definitely. the chorus is great. they need to go back to being raw. the bridge is actually not bad and the production works there... but the verses should have been kept raw for sure. still have hope for this album

Okay, seriously, all of this artwork hate is stupid. I'm not gonna go around touting it as their best album ever but it's solid.

I liked their debut back in the day and still somewhat enjoy it due to nostalgia. But this is just bad. Feldmann as of late has turned everything he touches in to crap. The term "overproduced" is thrown around a lot but this definitely is a case of overproduction, it doesn't even sound like real instruments are being played.

Yeah, it's a bit different, but every one of the used's albums has sounded different than the last, and i dont think in a bad way. This song is extremely infectious. Yeah... it's a bit dubsteb-ish, but Bert's vocals, especially on the chorus really blend with it well. I really liked it all of it, but everything from the slow bridge on was by far my favorite. really finished off the song well.

Because people are still not over The Format. The new fun. album is boring as hell with a real lack of creativity compared to their debut, but its hard to hate on nate.
