Customer Reviews

a beautiful evolution

I do not think many other reviewers really understand AFI. Any true fan should know that they are constantly evolving their sound. If you buy this album expecting it to sound like their older, "classic" material (e.g. Black Sails and earlier), then you'll be disappointed. But Decemberunderground is simply a maturing of AFI's sound, and gives a much broader showcase of their songwriting ability, and also of the band's own musical influences. AFI distinguish themselves from most other bands by not limiting themselves to one particular genre of music, or conforming to people's expectations of what they should sound like. Decemberunderground is an amazing album; certainly a step forward in AFI's musical career.

Very Tasteful Album!

AFI is notorious for changing thier sound, but one thing I have noticed is that with each passing album, the band evolves and become even more artistically tasteful than the prevous album. DECEMBERUNDERGROUND is a very tasteful album that has no cliches from previous albums with a new sounds, experimentation, and musically tasteful! I have been waiting for this album, not knowing what to expect, and it was a very awsome suprise! Congrats AFI for always letting the fans wonder, what is next?

Like an Overdone Sing The Sorrow...

AFI is a great band. Their goth take on punk and hardcore music has been more than attractive to my ecclectic music tastes. Their 2003 release "Sing The Sorrow" is one of the greatest albums I have and I recommend it to anybody. Their latest, Decemberunderground, however, is not as fantastic an effort. There are some great songs on the record, by all means, yet is seems to lack something new and interesting to keep my attention held ferm. Sing The Sorrow is brilliant and stands out resiliantly, but this one just seems like they are trying to copy that style and overdo it. Of the two, this is clearly the inferiour. Prelude 12/21: Alright for an intro. 4* Kill Caustic: Not bad, but not that great. 3* Miss Murder: Grew old very, very fast. 3* Summer Shudder: Great song. Should have made more like this. 5* The Interview: Pretty good. Impressive. 4* Love Like Winter: Barable, but not highly above good. 3* Affliction: Alright. Better than alot of the tracks. 4* The Missing Frame: Great song. Sounds like it could have been on Sing The Sorrow. 5* Kiss and Control: Very Leaving Song. Great track. 5* The Killing Lights: Kinda boring and monotone...2* 37mm: Alright, but still boring. 3* Endlessly, She Said: Would have been a fantastic conclusion, but is still a great song. 5* On the Arrow: Ok, but not fantastic. 3* I don't know what to say. It's not that this is a terrible album because there are good songs. There's just something missing from this one. Some of the songs are very similar, some get boring and some are just bad. AFI is still a fantastic band, this just isn't the best display of their obvious talent.

Although they didn't reach platinum status until 2003, hardcore punk revivalists AFI originally formed in 1991, when the band's four founding members -- vocalist Davey Havok, guitarist Markus Stopholese, bassist Vic Chalker, and drummer Adam Carson -- were attending high school in Ukiah, California. Chalker was replaced by Geoff Kresge after eight months, and the band played several local gigs and released a split 7", Dork, with fellow Ukiah natives Loose Change (a band that incidentally included...
