I would like to preface this bio by saying I hate band bio sheets. They are boring, self-congratulatory, tripe, filled with all sorts of overdramatic adjectives and if I never have to read another band bio sheet again, I will die a relatively happy man.

With that said, my name is George Pettit and this is a brief biography of Alexisonfire. Alexisonfire is the product of five kids from ... Read more in Amazon's Alexisonfire Store

5.0 out of 5 stars ... 14 Dec 2005
By Dave R
Format:Audio CD
The only word to describe Alexisonfire is sublime. I never liked screaming in music, i thought it was shallow and irritating. AOF converted me - Waterwings is one of my favourite songs of all time, and the rest of the album doesnt disappoint. No other sreamo band i have listened to have even touched alexis, save possibly emery's heavier moments. This album has so much depth to it, and so many different levels. The guitars are at times difficult to comprehend, particularly in Counterparts and number them, and Dallas's vocals are incredible (Check out his solo project City and Colour ;) ).
Fan of this type of music or not, I know many people who have broadened their musical horizons because of this band and opened up to new things. Catch them while theyre still hot...

5.0 out of 5 stars Alexisonfireareonfire 11 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
On hearing 44.Caliber Love Letter and Polaroids of Polar Bears, I felt that this band had something original to offer, and the album doesn't disappoint. It's reminiscent of Planes Mistaken For Stars, and Appleseed Cast, with slightly more hardcore vocals. The mellow parts are a joy to listen to and are in perfect contrast with the vocal parts. In this genre, screamed vocals can often get a bit tiring, but not in AIOF, and because of this I believe that they will appeal to a wider audience. Another great Equal Vision release, and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing debut album, a must have! 3 Jun 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First off, this is a great album. I bought it from hearing '44 caliber love letter' and 'dagger through the heart of st angelis', probably two of the best songs on the album. The vocals are dominated by Georges harsh screams and Dallas comes in at a few key points with the melodic vocals to really set it off. Musically the songs are great with intense riffs, some long intros and bizarre song strucures. The lyrics are often quite random yet still remain powerful and really contribute to the album. This albums very different to their latest release Watch Out! and would appeal to hardcore/screamo/punk fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars watch out 29 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
this album is great. they successfully mix the screaming/ singing to produce a great sound. The lyrics are clever, and at time quite strange, and they have great guitar, bass and drums. I bought this album after hearing 44. caliber love letter and dagger through the heart of st angeles. i must say that i was slightly dissapointed at first (due to the incredible quality of those two songs), however it has DEFINETLY grown on me, and now i think every song is great.Although not sure about the death metal screaming in one of the songs, but hey cant blame them for trying. Overall i would say definetly get this, it is different and is catchy and sophisticated. Their new album looks like its gonna be amazing too (though maybe less screaming and more singing).

1.0 out of 5 stars City and Colour fans proceed with caution! 30 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD
After getting into City and Colour recently I was curious about Dallas Green's previous band. I knew that Alexisonfire were a world away in terms of musical style, but I was under the impression that they were half-way good. The music on this CD consists of very ordinary post-punk guitar work the limited merits of which are completely negated in my view by a vocalist who screams unintelligibly throughout. I enjoy a diverse range of music and am no stranger to abrasive bands, e.g. Big Black, Killdozer, Butthole Surfers and Fugazi, but this CD is really painful. It reminded me of when I walk past the Lock-up Tent at the Reading Festival. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars How it all began... 16 May 2010
By T. Ray
Format:Audio CD
Knowing what we know now about AOF and how their music has evolved over the last 7 or 8 years, this album gives a great insight into what the band were all about in their early days. It's a bit rough around the edges, which I quite like, and there's some real classics here including the incredible Polaroids of Polar Bears and Pulmonary Archery. It's worth paying the extra for this version, as the album artwork - reputedly created by lead vocalist George Pettit himself - is superior to the standard UK release.

The Answer to the title would be ... Yes! This album is awesome and I would recommend any 1 to get it. ''44 Caliber Love Letter'' is a particular favourite - its awesome, its glides and the range of riffs is amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Alexisonfire (pronounced Alexis On Fire) 24 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
What can I say? You put it on and hear one of the best album intro's ever, it's worth buying just for that. Anyway, Alexisonfire take gorgeous riffs, some aggressive screamy vocals and the odd metalcore noise bit and meld them together perfectly, conjuring the sound that Finch aimed for but missed. This is the best "screamo" (I hate that term) album that you're ever likely to hear. If you're into anything like Funeral For A Friend, Hopesfall, Finch etc, you will love this album.
