Customer Reviews

The lyrics are pretty good and the music is just totally awesome.
everyone should die
It is also a little darker in a straightforward scary way, whereas Black Sails and Art of Drowning are just very somber and sad.

If your not an AFI fan, but like hardcore, this is a great addition to any Punk collection.

AFI's third effort, 1997's "Shut Your Mouth And Open Your Eyes", still remains my favorite piece of music from the band (besides the "All Hallows" EP) despite it's age and significant difference from the band now adays. If you're a first time listener to the cd, there's going to be a lot of noticable differences from the AFI on this disc, and the AFI on "Art Of Drowning" or "Sing The Sorrow". Despite the differences however, "Shut Your Mouth And Open Your Eyes" provides you with the complete listening experience, and will undoubtably leave you coming back for more every time.

I would say this cd is when AFI was transitioning from their punk stage to their hardcore stage. Not that this cd is "hardcore", but it's considerably heavier than anything the band had done prior (and actually considerably heavier than most of the material the band has done now adays, well maybe except "Black Sails in The Sunset"). The heaviness of the record is what really gives it the edge though. "Keeping Out of Direct Sunlight", the album opener is a foreshadowing of what is to come on the record, before quickly jumping into one of my all time favorite AFI songs "Three Reasons". Davey's vocals are very different on this record, more of an old-school hardcore shout, mixed with some melodic singing more reminiscant of later AFI. The screaming/shouting does wonders for the album though. Songs like "Let It Be Broke" and "Coin Return" wouldn't have been as outstanding as they are if they hadn't had this give/take relationship of screaming and singing. There's plenty of great ones to choose from on here including the fan favorite "Third Season", my personal favorite "Triple Zero" and a cover of Filth's "Today's Lesson".

It is okay to like new AFI, there is nothing wrong with that. Every once in awhile I, myself, will pull out STS. BUT, if you listen to AFI you'd think you'd atleast appreciate this cd. It's wonderful that they are progressing, but this cd is awesome. It shows what they are capable of. This was definitely before Jade. You can tell, because the music and lyrics weren't influenced by him. Once they did Black Sails in the Sunset (not Wind), there was no hope that they'd ever do a cd like this again. This is a wonderful cd that should be listened to be everyone.

Let me let you in on a little secret; all AFI is good. That's right ALL. Another secret; AFI is my favorite band of all time. Why? I'll show you.

'We are the Ones with the radiating eyes. We are the Ones who have a fire inside. We are the Ones only we can recognize. We've been rejected...'

...and that's the opening for this album, which is AFI's third. It's their harshest, angriest, meanest effort to date, and I don't think they will ever go back to this.

The sound? Fast and aggressive. The lyrics? Fast and pissed off! At one point, Davey's voice audibly cracks with the sheer rage-driven emotion that can't be found on any other AFI. Black_Sails_In_The_Sunset comes close, but it's better in other ways.

'Do you understand what I'm trying to say? Have you ever felt? Ever felt this way? Tainted with rage that you can't drain away or it will cost you your life.'...

...and that's the essesnce of this album. Davey Havok's lyrics are always poetic, unlike any other punk rock band anywhere, but here they trade in some of the band's later elloquence for sheer rage, and the result is an excellent, if slightly unpolished, representation of what the band has to offer.

So, if you like hardcore punk-rock, this is your AFI album.

And as for you who say AFI is not hardcore enough for you, go listen to harder music. If Slayer's Reign_In_Blood don't do it for you, try Converge's You_Fail_Me, or some Pig_Destroyer. But don't down a good band because they're not your kind of music.

For people who can appreciate AFI, and not just hardcore music, see also AFI-Black_Sails_In_The_Sunset, and AFI-The_Art_Of_Drowning. You won't be dissapointed.

PS For people new to AFI, I recommend starting at the middle with The_Art_Of_Drowning.

This is AFI's greatest CD. It's more hardcore than any of their others, and that's why this is my personal favorite. I think it's much better than Black Sails in the Sunset and the Art of Drowning. In it, Davey Havok uses that hardcore voice on just about every song. I love that...and most of you who have heard AFI will agree with me that Davey Havok sounds much better with that voice than the mellowed out one that he uses throughout most of The Art of Drowning. You can just feel the energy of them all through this CD. Anyone who can put that much energy into their music has to be good (many people probably wouldn't agree with that) I highly recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys AFI.

My God, I love this CD. I love AFI's punk stuff in general, but this has to be my favorite album by them. It's loud, fast, agressive, and pissed off! Everything a punk rock album should be. The lyrics are also very well written, and they're almost poetic. Not quite. AFI really started getting poetic with 'Black Sails in the Sunset', which is this band's second best. Anyway, the best songs on here would definately be 'Today's Lesson', 'The Devil Loves You', 'pH Low', 'Lower Your Head And Take It In The Body', 'Three Second Notice', and 'Third Season'. Definately reccomended to ALL punk rock fans. New scene-emo AFI fans, you probably won't like this at all. Haha.
