Review

You ve seen the name, you ve heard the hype, now see what the punk music world has buzzing about on this very special tribute to A.F.I.!

12 underground punk bands tear into 12 juicy A.F.I. cuts including Girl s Not Grey, I Wanna Get A Mohawk, God Called In Sick Today, Now The World and more!

With their trademark goth-crossed hardcore punk style, A.F.I. have led a revolution in underground music, achieving massive popular success while staying true to their art!

A must-own for fans of A.F.I. and real punk music!

A Fire Inside - burning strong for over a decade & only recently reaching the full ferocity of their heat! The key to this unique Bay Area band s continued success lies in their constant evolution, the ability to hold true to their fiendish punk roots, while taking brave chances at every turn along their path. A.F.I. provide an intoxicating clash of brash, rawk energy & deep gothic sensibility compliments of front man extraordinaire Davey Havok s perfect blend of vintage Danzig croon, early Manson mystique & a charisma that is all his own! While this band manages to sound completely fresh amidst a sea of mediocrity, they do wear their influences proudly on their black sleeves, having paid homage to heroes like the Misfits & the Cure on previous records. Now, the boys are finally getting the tribute they deserve as an eclectic assortment of bands from around the world turn in a unified, yet varied collection of exciting A.F.I. covers. Light a candle, increase the volume, and share the dream. --Cleopatra Records

Customer Reviews

The female singer doesn't match with this song.
"mrspuget"
Sure the songs aren't EXACTLY like the originals but that's not what a cover cd is about.

I didn't even buy this CD... but I felt like I had to say something.

I love AFI and I love most tribute albums. The thing I like about most tribute albums is hearing how the band influenced other artists and listening to their interpretation of the bands songs. Unlike MOST (not all) of the other reviewers on this page who think that a tribute album is just supposed to be the exact same song note for note, I actually feel that it is good for the bands to make the song "their own." That being said I liked Pure13's version of "Malleus" and Pisser's version of "Highschool Football Hero." They for the most part only changed the presentation of the song while keeping the same message and feeling. The rest of the songs on the CD are bland replicas of great songs. Personally I feel that if the female singers on this album (that means you Lust)want to be taken seriously by real AFI fans, lets hear some intensity and emotion in your voice. It just sounds like she is just reading the lyrics off of sheet music without ever hearing the way Davey puts his heart and soul into his singing. I also enjoyed Gothocalypse's version of "Now the World" even though for the most part it was just a reproduction of the original. By the way I only rated this album a two so that it would stick out among the other reviews, it is really a one or less. My suggestion: Stick to the original and hopefully some bands that have creativity will make a better tribute album someday.

OK, I'm not under 13 but I like my anonymity:

This is yet another in the awful trend of "tribute" CDs that appeared in response to the popularity of mainstream pop-punk and rock. The strategy seems to be:

1) Find a popular band, preferrably one that has a new album coming out soon or has just released one.

2) Grab any lousy unknown band you can (or even just make one up) and have them crank out quick cover versions of your chosen group's most popular songs.

3) Make sure the band names and record label on your CD have such idiotic and anonymous names that it would either be impossible to look them up, or no one would ever want to (thus absolving all contributors of any blame).

4) Label your CD "file under *name of popular band being covered*" and make sure it hits the shelves around the same time as the latest album by said popular band.

5) Wait 5 minutes for the String Quartet to follow-up with their tribute CD to the same group

Seriously, there are a lot of these "tributes" that have no reason to exist other than the possiblity of making a few bucks off someone else's popularity [see the Simple Plan tribute, released when SP had only released 1 album of their own!!! (Since when does band with 1 album out warrant a tribute?) Or the blink-182 tribute that I can only guess is terrible because whoever played on it hid their identities behind a made-up band name ("all songs performed by the United States of Punk")!?!] Even the record labels are silly one-shots...take this AFI one: "Tributized Records" is the name on the label. Oh, please.

That said, take any of these tribute CDs with copious spoonfuls of salt.

There is not much else I can say about this CD, as the majority of the other reviewers have expressed my exact sentiments. This CD is not just an insult to AFI and their fans, but to the art of music. Almost all of the singers on this "tribute" CD are just awful--they cannot hold a note, are seemingly tone-deaf, and wouldn't surprise me if they were deaf in general. I'm not saying this to insult or mock the hearing-impaired, but how can these bands record songs that sound so horrible? Did they not listen to their own recordings?
I would never want to hear the songs on this album if the artists released them on their own, but for them to have the gall to label their caterwaulings as a tribute to, arguably, one of the most dynamic bands of the last 20 years...these bands lack self-awareness, talent and humility.
Don't buy this CD. There is absolutely no reason to purchase this recording. If you really must part with your money so badly that you'd consider buying this CD, make sure you have some enemies--this music would be perfect for torturing them.

I was looking around at BestBuy and saw this cd on the rack. I thought, "Wow! A tribute to AFI? That's awesome!" I had never heard of these bands before so I was eager to take a listen. And well, it was a "Great Disappointment." When I heard the first song I thought, "This is kinda bad. But maybe the rest of it wont be so bad." And let me tell you, it was. I love AFI as much as the next guy does and I can see why you would want to buy this but please do yourself a favor. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT waste your money on this. The singers from these bands are horrible, at least when doing AFI covers. The singing was probably the worst part. I actually kinda liked the Mohawk song but her style of singing did not match what the song was trying to convey. So bottom line, horrible tribute album. DON'T BUY THIS CRAP!
