Notewatching the new CD. B4s in "Revolution", "Cry" goes down to B2, and there are a few screamed E5s. "Cry" is a good song, but it sounds too Linkin Park-style, unlike their other songs. Good to hear Bert screaming again. A lot of the vocals seem to be distorted with studio effects, though. His vocal timbre has darkened significantly from damage over many years of harsh singing and extreme screaming, and he dips a lot around to C3 these days, unlike his very light voice on The Used's first two albums. But he still easily hits notes in the tenor range, which with his extended lower range now makes a great addition to his voice that still carries a lot of emotion regardless of singing style.

A lot of cool harmonies I never noticed in the acapella track



Screams go up to the F♯5, also I've always wondered do you think that A5 at 1:56 is pitch-shifted?

That starts at A5?  Shocked  I've always heard it as an F5. I think it sounds like head voice, sustained, and descending to F5.



C3 at 0:37.



B2s and possibly some A2s during the first chorus. G♯2 at 0:45.



There's a B5 at 0:22, but it's hard counting a lot of the harsh vocals since the Artwork album, since they are either done by someone else, or Bert doesn't duplicate them live.

A (silent) ~E2 at 3:09 during the outro.



Short full E5 at 2:38. Note the song seems to be down-tuned live.



But he pulls off an impressive scream here at 2:35. Really surprising, since it's from 2014.
