We Are The Used
Maybe Memories has taken the souls of The Used and thrown them out on the table for everyone to see. In thirteen well-mixed live and previously unreleased tracks, the bandâ€šÃ„Ã´s second full-length album gives you a personal and sincere look at who these guys really are. Songs such as â€šÃ„Ã²On My Ownâ€šÃ„Ã´ (live) and â€šÃ„Ã²Just a Littleâ€šÃ„Ã´ (prev. unreleased) give you a taste of their energy on stage â€šÃ„Ã¬ jumping around, or letting loose a scream – while â€šÃ„Ã²Sometimes I Just Go For Itâ€šÃ„Ã´ shatters the solid Deftones-style-punk with a piano instrumental to make this a musically varying, engaging, and very personal album, as it gives you a glimpse of why they play the way they do.Memories reflects upon the bandsâ€šÃ„Ã´ battle to overcome drugs, homelessness, and the closed minds of their peers in tracks sometimes heavy, sometimes gentle, and always compelling. As each song tells a story true to the life of the band, we are shown that the best way to feel more a part of a bandâ€šÃ„Ã´s music is to see their roots â€šÃ„Ã¬ where they came from and how they ended up, and that its never too early to release a live album of the progress.
