In Love and Death
In Love and Death is the second studio album by American rock band The Used. It was released on September 28, 2004 and has since been certified gold. It is their most well received and successful album to date. This was the first album for which Alex Pardee did the artwork, and he has done all artwork for The Used since, excluding 2009’s Artwork. The title and music reference a number of tragic events that surrounded vocalist Bert McCracken during the album’s production, notably the death of his pregnant girlfriend.
In Love and Death was mastered using HDCD. Although it is unmarked, playing the album in a CD player able to decode HDCD will give superior sound quality.
