Album Review

After nearly 30 years of recording, longtimers Vinnie Stigma and Roger Miret continue to run the show, along with return bassist Mike Gallo and new recruits Joseph James (guitar) and Pokey Mo (drums). Agnostic Front have survived various lineup changes and flirted with a few musical styles (namely metal) since their early days as New York hardcore pioneers. But from the third quarter of their career on, they have stayed consistent, blending thrash, metalcore, and Oi! styles. Madball/Cannibal Corpse producer Erik Rutan brings out the finer traits of all three styles for My Life My Way, while simultaneously making the band sound as big and heavy as sonically possible. Roger Miret's distinctive vocals — which are delivered in more of a yowl than a growl — are straining but remain powerful, and even (gasp!) melodic at times. Other than the occasional big hook, there are only a few departures from the usual steady riffing. “A Mi Manera” is sung entirely in Spanish, and the killer cut “That’s Life” revives the haphazard fury of the early years in under a minute-twenty, as Miret yells “Who f*****g cares!?” Agnostic Front's devoted fan base, that's who.

Customer Reviews

Nope

Sorry but I have listened to it several times and it is just not clicking for me. I liked Another Voice but most of the new stuff is just not doing it for me. If you are new to AF, get One Voice or Victim in Pain.

Not the AF I cut my teeth on by any stretch

The sad truth is that the great Agnostic front, easily one of the greatest hardcore bands in the entire pantheon (arguably the best if you are talking about their formative years -'82-'92) has lost the power and the spark that made them so raw and enthralling and most likely did so long ago. Since reforming in 1997 Agnostic Front has never recaptured any semblance of those furious years that turned them into legends. The main problem is not even the instrumentals or even the corny back up vocals, it's the lyrics. The content here is as generic as the latest Terror album. Moreover the use of cheesy, been there, done that melodic background vocals (is this agnostic front or the Misfits) simply doesn't add the slightes pinache to this ultimately torpid product. This of course is a band that was once on the cutting edge of hardcore, becoming one the first to combine the virile, caustic leviathan like crunge of 80's thrash metal with the sober, textured imagery of Lower East side, New York skinhead reality. And then their was one voice, which was supposed to be AF's swan song, brilliantly penned by lead vocalist Roger Miret after he did a prison term, replete with bravely poetic lyrics that divulged an inner hatred of society and the justice systems massive hypocrisy with an honesty and complexity rare today in hardcore. You will find no such weight here, just more drivel about how AF has stayed the course, more pining on about the old days, excessive and trite, these songs fail to move beyond the vogue. It's simply time for AF to hang up their spurs before the memory of them as the kings of hardcore is completely dashed to pices by latent epitaph kids, dropkick murphy dorks and other trendies. I too was excited to hear "another voice" with Matt Henderson back on guitar but that too fell well short of goal. Here one need only look at the front cover to know that AF has settled into a boring ritual of complacency, heavily reliant on Rogers still prodigious vocal grunts for any impact. Unchallenging and innocuous, AF was better suited allowing the fire to go out 18 years ago. Hardcore is pretty well dead, here is the proof.

Since 1987..

That was the year I first heard this band and it's a good thing that they are still goin after all these years..

Biography

Formed: New York, NY

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

At the dawn of the '80s, New York City was mired in debt and crime, grappling with one of the most trying periods in its history, yet ironically (or perhaps fittingly), its underground music scene was seething with activity like never before. Still reeling from the violent inception and subsequent implosion of punk rock, hundreds of underprivileged kids living in Manhattan and its outlying boroughs began forming rock groups to rail against the everyday trials, dangers, and prejudices of urban existence....
