Cujo's Musical Review

Upon pressure from u2popmofo and IWB, I decided to post my thoughts on AFI's sixth album... here goes

AFI: Sing the Sorrow

Rob Halford would be proud of this agoraphobia-laced triumph. With a variation of styles ranging from goth punk to ambient overtures, AFI's Sing the Sorrow provides selection for even the most discriminating taste.
The album initiates the listener with, the beginning, a song driven by heavy drums and heavy Pink Floyd influence. It's a pretty good indication of the material to follow, compelling you to join the Despair Faction.
On first listen, you notice that it's not the typical punk album; the lyrics are more spiritual, and the guitar is not the driving force behind the music. Adam Carson and Hunter really spotlight the percussion and rhythm sections, featured in songs like Bleed Black and Death of Seasons. Among the listing, the album contains two bonus tracks with a predominantly vocal performance, along with This Time Imperfect.

Standout tracks:

Bleed Black

Led Zeppelin formula for guitar, with various parts of different styles. Reminiscent of TOOL in terms of the opening guitar riffs and bass lines, juxtaposed with punk-style drumming.

Silver and Cold

Lyrics with reference to sacrifice and longing. Iron Maiden power chords influence the presence of the rhythmic guitar at chorus.

Dancing Through Sunday

Worthy for its guitar solo alone.

Death of Seasons

Probably the hardest of the bunch, with Rammstein-like intro, and Judas Priest body. But most impressive for its mix of techno beats and punk riffs.

Leaving Song

The best of the slow songs; contains the simplest, but most interesting guitar part. Probably Davey's best lyric.

Overall good tunes and good record. Well worth the buy for Davey Havok's vocals and lyrics.

Home may be nowhere for these boys, but they are sure carving a niche in the recently hollow punk genre. The goth punk experiment worked, lets hope it doesn't balloon into a fad.

EXCELLENT Cujo!!!! You never fail to disappoint in terms of musical observations!!!

I too agree on how cool the solo in Dancing Through Sunday is.

Your observations = fanstasmulisticly observifiant

One comment, that wasnt AFI's third album. It was their 6th.

No I haven't had a chance to go through the Clash yet... I know most of the material...

I couldn't imagine writing a review for that... maybe you or IWB could.

Yeah, screw that. There were like 13 songs on it I hadnt heard. I gave comments on them. That's about the most I want to do.

Plus, it's kinda lame to review a complilation cd set.

Agreed... its difficult to write something so small on a body of work so huge... maybe IWB be up to the task... she's on here all the time anyway right? She's a machine.

yes. and i couldn't write a review good enough to do justice to the superior quality of songs on that cd either. there's not much more that you can say about the songs on that compilation other than "fucking amazing."

hey, that can be my review. even though i didn't listen to the actual best of, i've heard all the songs, i listened to them all the other day when i listened to the clash box set straight through. then i donwloaded (or maybe i donwloaded it first, i can't remember the EXACT order) "this is england."

fucking amazing.

yes yes I know I'm lame. I don't own London Calling. OK, I promise to get it now -- but get Essential Clash first.
