I personally couldn't wait for AFI's lastest release after their three year absense and I really wanted to hear how they had changed- and boy have they!

From the opening to the ending, what you are hearing is a new, more mature AFI with Daveys vocals showing an definite improvement from before, don't get me wrong, I have always loved his voice but now it sends shivers down my spine because of its richness.

The tracks range from their more "classic" style to 80's(ish) synthpop but the writing and instrumentation are as sharp as ever.

When I first listened to it, I wasn't sure because it was so different to previous albums and I have read reviews where fans are criticising it for being too mainstream but in my opinion, it is an album that has to be approached with an open mind and may take a few listenings to get used to but is worth the effore and cash.

I'm sure it will become a five star album soon enough

by the way, I have been a fan of AFI for seven years and have all the albums from "shut your mouth"

You can't top perfection, though they certainly tried. Sing The Sorrow was their definitive album, then along came peak mid-2000s emo with Decemberunderground. Unfocused and uneven, but infectious in a lot of places, moody, catchy, and even fun here and there. Much like it was obvious how Stone Sour influenced Slipknot from Vol. 3 onwards, it's clear here that Davey Havok had grown frustrated with the little black box he'd covered in Misfits posters then put himself into and began incorporating Blaqk Audio's synthpop influences into AFI (see Love Like Winter and 37mm), while also trying to appease the mood of the time with goth-tinged emo pop.
Very of its time, arguably even definitive of its time, but by no means the definitive AFI album.

I dont think so.. theyve been heading this way since Black sails.. what a destination to reach tho.. this albums almost perfect, some cuts from Guns n Roses, the Cure, Black Flag... its all in there.. Theyre still ahead of the game as far as modern rock is concerned, and its all down to the fact theyre not affraid to experiment.. Fairplay to them theyve pulled it off here.. Daveys singing/Screaming is on top form.. Jades Guitars are getting better and the riff still kick ass.. Hunter and Adam are tight as ever..

Great Cd.. If anyone puts them down for selling out i think i might track em down and beat them because if making music this good is selling out i dont care.!!

I would hardly call myself a hard-core fan of AFI but I love everything I have ever heard of by them.

If you are expecting a repeat of Sing the Sorrow, this album is not in any way similar. Their usual melancholy delves slightly deeper producing an extremely bitter-sweet feel throughout the album. The bonus tracks available on some cd's includes the fantastically upbeat track Rabbits are Roadkill on Rt.37 which has been played over and over by request on Mike Davie's The LockUp radio show, and a cover of NIN's Head Like a Hole.

My only negative comment for this album would be that there seems to be an increased array of synthesised sounds compared to previous albums, (some fans may find this a little irritating) but as always many of the songs feature wonderfully twisted lyrics and gorgeous basslines which make up their unmistakeable sound. If you like to sing along to tracks or just listen to the depth of the music (which this album certainly has, there are so many layers of sounds to each track) this is for you.

A great album for fans and new listeners alike, go out and buy it.

xXx

You have to take the opinions of many other reviewers here with a hefty pinch of salt - many of them are fans of the "old" AFI, back in their punk/hardcore days. Nothing wrong at all with that, but it completely skews their view of AFI's new releases.

Many old fans hate Sing the Sorrow, which I feel personally is pretty foolish. Sing the Sorrow is a classic album, easily one of my top 10 albums of all time. It has a feel all of its own, with beautifully dark lyrics and sweeping melodies. In one word - brilliant. And a natural evolution for the band.

When I bought the new album, I was expecting an effort that paled compared to Sing the Sorrow. I had heard the single "Miss Murder" and was not particularly impressed. I bought the album anyway, and was quite simply blown away.

This album is seriously good. Davey Havok's lyrics are as poetic and absorbing as ever, the melodies are great and there are some rousing choruses. Furthermore, there are some seriously beautful moments on this album, for example the guitar interlude halfway through "Affliction" which is quite simply gorgeous. The best songs, for me, are The Missing Frame (lovely, haunting chorus), Summer Shudder (awesome guitar work) and Love Like Winter (again, totally electric chorus).

Some people have complained about the amount of synth, but I think this is an exaggeration and that it really adds to the album. As for the idea that this album is an identity crisis - another exaggeration. Sure, it is hard to define what genre this album falls under, but only because it is so dynamic.

If you loved Sing the Sorrow, you should love this too.
