4.0 out of 5 stars Burying the past, onto a darker future. 21 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great return to form for my favourite band. Their last release "Crash Love" was something of a misstep in my opinion, taking on this new fashionista radio rock sound with elements from Davey and Jades side project Blaqk Audio. This latest release casts that aside for this deliciously dark and brooding new wave/ melodic punk sound that fits very comfortably with AFI. Davey's "shouts" make a return on a few tracks, the lyrics are bitter and resentful, the music is loud and in your face. Probably their strongest release track for track since Sing the Sorrow.

Nice work lads. More of this please!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kinda disappointed 26 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As an AFI fan. Of course I would buy their new record. This is a very varied record but the main overlying theme is that of a depressing one. I didn;t really get the "zing" that I did with Crashlove. You can sense that Davey and the guys went through some serious stuff because it definitely reflects in the music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slick, Dark, but lacking something. 2 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD
So I'm going to review this because the other reviews are atrocious.

With burials AFI have produced an album which has a very similar tone to sing the sorrow while at the same time having a much more mature, polished, and in some respects electronic sound. This is both good and bad. We all know AFI can write songs, so there's no problem there. the sweeping melodies and rousing emotive choruses are plentiful.

So if this album has a flaw it's that, while they have played all the strong cards they were holding during the sing the sorrow era, this record lacks something they had then, something difficult to put ones finger on, energy, urgency, I can't quite figure it out. In order to produce a brooding, darker, more gothic and atmospheric sound, some of the tracks do lack the urgency that was so ceaselessly self-reinforcing throughout that aforementioned record. Burials also has flawless and slinky production values which take the edge off somewhat. On top of this, the record is scattered with noticeably light sounding tracks. It is perhaps these that detract from the whole.

But in many ways those production values and electronic additions have added to the sound, and were probably recquiresd in order for the band to move forward. They aspire to a big sound, and these additions are what it takes to get it. (think Frank Delgado from the Deftones). One certainty is that this is a vast improvement on the mostly forgettable post-offspring college rock of Crash Love. A while the tone of Burials is similar to STS, I would argue the songwriting and production bring it closer to decemberunderground, it has the same pop sensibility in terms of song structure and dynamic. But pleasingly, it is a darker record.

The more I listen to this album the more songs I love! The digital booklet is OK, it could have been laid out better but overall it's good. Fantastic album, fantastic band :)

4.0 out of 5 stars AFI as they should be 27 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ok so if you like AFI you will like this, although there is a bit of a repetitiveness about the tracks and so far not one has stood out to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars realised how much i missed this band 9 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
A band for whom change was woven into their very fabric. From almost hardcore beginnings into pop punk then gothic punk all the way to the electro pop punk of `Sing the Sorrow' and sadly for me this is where I stopped listening but to be honest I thought they had stopped playing. So when I found Burials at my local HMV I decided I had to give it a go all the while I was wondering just what style they were onto these days, because the way they were changing it wouldn't have surprised me to hear free form jazz when I played the cd. To be honest I was a bit shocked to find that they were only onto gothic rock, which was a perhaps too obvious move after `The Art of Drowning' and `Sing the Sorrow'.

None of that really matters because when all is said and done this is a really good album which blossoms in front of your eyes and reminds you just how good a band AFI are and you end up kicking yourself for letting them slip below your radar for so long.

If there are any problems with Burials it is that it feels a bit over polished, there is a distinct lack of rough edges, which perhaps lessens its emotional punch.

Check out `I Hope you Suffer', `Heart Stops' and `Greater than 84'
