The Used, 'Artwork' (Reprise)

3
Artwork
Critical Mass
Label: Reprise

by Spencer Kornhaber

Lead screamer Bert McCracken already called this Utah emo-metal outfit's fourth album a concept piece about "hating yourself," so there's zero mystery in his snot-nosed enunciations of sorrow and bloodletting. The Used's call-and-response choruses seem to exist solely to make palatable some of the most loathsome mixed metaphors about loathing ever recorded (this album's finest: "I'll be your loaded gun waiting to come undone"). Turgid even for the genre, Artwork will make you hate yourself for singing along with tricky standouts like "Empty With You."
