Album Review: The Used - Imaginary Enemy


GAS Union • Producer: John Feldmann

Imaginary Enemy, the Used’s sixth studio album, begins with “Revolution,” a promising track for what is to come. Unfortunately, the rest of the album didn’t step up to the plate to follow. Musically, the band has pulled together elements from past releases that give great melodies and beats for live crowds to go nuts over. Where Imaginary Enemy fails is in the lyricism. At some points, listening to this album is a lot like being forcefully preached to. That being said, the album isn’t necessarily a bad release, it’s just an okay one. The only problem is, okay isn’t good enough from a band like the Used. – Victoria Patneaude
