Yeah Bf they are awesome live. They put on a show, and while not having the most difficult stuff to throw out, they play it perfectly. I really enjoyed this album, but I've grown off of this and I like the older days of Days of the Pheonix

The first time I heard this album the whole way through I was not right in the head, and this sounded absolutely perfect.

Still sounds nearly there.

This is my favorite album ever. Sputnik's categorization of AFI as pop-punk is bordering on blasphemous.

No they are not they are classic punk or punk revivalists. They have nothing at all to do with the modern pop-punk movement.

They're pop punk. Don't get all defensive. Maybe they're older stuff was more 'punk' but they still fit under this category. And your last sentence is pretty much wrong.This Message Edited On 02.06.07

Well I guess it depends upon if you consider this album to be a total departure from their old sound, which even you admit was definitely punk. I still don't find even their new stuff to be in any way pop-punk. That's like calling Rush Metal or calling Death Cab for Cutie Emo. (both of which I have heard)

And I'm not at all defensive, I'm simply arguing my point. :-) *peace*

They kinda went from a vaguely hardcore-ish band into some sort of weird goth punkish thing to pop-punk now. Don't get offended, they're lumped in with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus now. Always a good thing.q

*sigh* I still see no relation between Decemberunderground and something like FOB, Paramore, or The All American Rejects.

Since I despise the Apparatuses with a burning passion, I'm afraid the band which holds my undying musical allegiance getting lumped in with them is something taht would offend me lol.

I wouldn't call decemberunderground pop-punk in some normal sense. It's it's own breed of pop-punk. It's pop-punk, yes, but in the All Time Low, Fall Out Boy, Say Anything sense.

Decemberunderground is most definitely pop-punk, in the exact same vein as FOB and Paramore and AAR.

Also it's a piece of shit.

For as "un-innovative" as pop punk is, it has plenty of diversity. Also depends on your interpretation on what it is exactly.

I disagree about DU but taht's a whole different banana (I totally just made up that expression). I rather liked it, though not nearly as much as any of their previous albums.

At any rate I still don't see any relation between it and the aforementioned bands. AFI, even at their lowest point, still manage to be utterly unique IMO.

Yess someone re-categorized them as punk. I am pleased. I was rather embarassed that pop-punk was making up 32% of my album scores.

I'll probably regret posting this but oh well.

They are certainly more pop than punk now by a long shot.

They used to be a hardcore outfit, then they became a punk band, then they became a pop-punk group. Whats so difficult to comprehend about that?This Message Edited On 02.21.07
