While it looks like no U2 fans here give a crap about AFI, I was excessively suprised that when I went into the store like 30 mins after it opened, there were only 2 copies of Sing the Sorrow left!! I lucked out!

I like how they're selling it for really cheap everywhere, that gives a lot more incentive to people to buy it.

What color is your cover? Red? Silver? I think the Silver ones are limited to only this week or something. I couldnt decide which I liked better. Red probably looked better, but I took silver just because I knew it was a limited version.

BTW, I put a quote in EYKIW that Edge said about The Clash last night.

It was so cool to hear Clash songs I'd never heard before today. Even better that all of them are good ones.

I thought I'd heard of that Ginsberg guy before, probably read some of his stuff in High School or something.

my cover is black, the only cover they had. theyre was a whole ton of copies, i think people in western massachusetts feel the same way about afi as most of the people here do. which sucks cos they don't know what they're missing.

i figured you probably knew who he was and just didn't remember...i'm not a huge fan of that song, i like it ok, but it's not something i go straight to listen to when i put in the album

that is a really good bunch of clash songs, i'm glad you finally heard them, cos they're great. and i really did listen to the whole box set last night, i was getting really tired when there were about three tracks left, but i waited til the cd ended to go to sleep

listening to afi--...but home is nowhere

You need to force yourself to listen to the very last hidden song a few times. It's freaking great. Becoming one of my favs. off the album.

The first one isnt really even a song, I dont know what to think about it.

i'm listening to the scret track stuff...the only thing is it will freeze my computer is listen to that over and over, i have to listen to the whole 12th track, which i may be able to do once i get completly aquainted with the album...sure i know the songs, but they take on a whole new life when they're on the album as opposed to a folder of mp3s on my computer.

i swear the thing on the back of the cd booklet looks like happy noodle boy...do you know who happy noodle boy is? i don't know if your cd book has the same back as mine, but it's this round thing at the bottom right corner

that first thing that isn't really a song reminds me of this band called...i forgot what they were called...they had a song called "stigmata for the fallen" and i think they were called requiem, but that may have just been the name of another one of their songs...it reminds me of them...

this time imperfect is great. listening to it now...i really like how they printed the lyrics for the secret track in the cd book. usually bands don't even give you a title of the secret track (if there is one)

No clue who or what happy noodle boy is.

I think I know what you mean, it's a circle with a picture of corn or wheat stocks or something in it, right?

When I bought AFI there was quite a few gone... it sounds like they are popular around here after they came for Warped tour a few years back.

would highly recommend Ginsberg's Howl.

so I may go buy some CDs after work. for people who already own Clash records, what would be better? Essential Clash or London Calling?

That's a really good question. I really do think you need both, but I dont know which would be better to buy first. Probably Essential Clash, with that you'll get all of their "big" songs which will make your listening experience a little more enjoyable I think.

At the same time though, I consider London Calling to be my all time favorite album. I dont know, tough decision, one I cant make.

what clash records do you have already? and if you have albums how on earth do you not having london calling? that's like non-u2 fans who have the joshua tree...

you need london calling. nothting else to it. but then again you also need to hear all the stuff on the essentials that you're missing by only getting london calling.

and mofo, i like "this is england" i listened to it about 4 times in a row last night after i felt while i was making some flashcards for my latin vocabulary words i had to memorize, and i got over whatever it was that i didn't like about it. and the song's been stuck in my head all day...
