A Dark, Brooding Album with a Pop Sensibility that Really Works,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Burials (Audio CD)
Listening to AFI's Burials, I kept thinking that it manages to retain elements from their previous three albums without feeling old or formulaic. Thematically, this album is as dark as the cover art, but it manages to balance all that heavy emotion with wonderfully catchy, and at times bouncy, melodies. Somehow it is both grim and brooding, but still refreshing. All in all, it is excellent work. If you have enjoyed AFI's last three albums, this one won't disappoint.
