The Used : The Canyon
The Used have released their seventh album, The Canyon. The album released on October 27 has received many positive reviews, and the time put in by the band really shows. Photopassmag caught The Used at the second stop on their tour in Los Angeles, CA. The Used took the stage, standing behind a large backdrop of their album cover. Lead singer, Bert McCracken, stood on stage in silhouette. Then the show exploded with “Take It Away”. The Used played their hearts out and gave empowered performances.
As you listen to the album, you can feel the pain and loss. Each song has a fiery signature of its own, but culminates into an overall apparent scheme, like a play with many acts and scenes. The opening track “For You” is hauntingly beautiful and is even more so when the band plays it live.
The Canyon is just what you expect from The Used and more. The album bares its soul with heavy hitting melodies in songs like “Rise Up Lights” and “Over and Over Again”. The Canyon is the most vulnerability and personal album The Used has made. McCracken is flawless as he weaves his voice through the cutting melodies. The album is full of songs that are unique, and stand out in their own ways.
