4.0 out of 5 stars A return to form, October 22, 2013
This review is from: Burials (Audio CD)
AFI fans have learnt to keep their expectations for new afi music in check over the years. Or even have no expectations at all. So when I gave the record a spin on the way home from work I was quite pleased to discover that Burials is a genuinely good record. In fact I haven't been this excited about AFI in a while. I've listened to hit constantly the past few days.

Davey and Jade tapped into inspiration that seemed missing in the fairly by the numbers Crash Love. It's alot more cohesive as well in that it really feels like an album and not just a collection of songs.

Sonically, they retain the melodic elements of the last two records, but bring in a lot more raw energy. There's some big choruses that will be reminiscent of AFI of old, but not quite the once signature gang vocals they were known for. Unsurprisingly there's the electronic elements, but they haven't just shoe horned Blaq Audio into AFI. It's quite distinct here on burials, adding plenty of atmosphere to the songs.

Best songs: I hope you suffer, 17 Crimes, Rewind, Anxious,

But honestly all the songs are good.

4.5 stars
