Magnified is the second album by the American alternative rock band Failure. Magnified differs greatly from Failure's debut album Comfort by using a great deal of bass guitar distortion. Their use of a bassline as the main structure to the song as well as distortion can be heard best on "Frogs" and "Wonderful Life". Harmonics are also used extensively and can be heard quite prominently on the songs "Moth", "Wonderful Life" and "Empty Friend".
