Afi Burials Ranked

Wanted to make this for me.

Getting real tired of fans calling this the best on the album. This is a weirdly made attempt at a post-hardcore song. Not bad, just strange.
12Heart Stops

I used to hate it, but hey, it's pretty catchy, and it sure is a unique track.
11The Conductor

It's good, shows their attempt at a different style, and yeah...nothing breathtaking though
10I Hope You Suffer

Still can't get over the lyrics in this. Song has grown on me and it has some cool ideas, but it's just executed so simply.
9The Sinking Night

Such a great intro. Upon hearing this, I really expected to witness AFI's best album to date. It's not Miseria Cantare, and it doesn't give off the same power as Strength Through Wounding, but this kills Prelude and it really is an AFI intro.
8No Resurrection

This track is such a nice jam. Every second grooves and it still has that AFI feel. Safe yet different is a good way to describe it.
717 Crimes

Rules as a single. The most punk track on the album and it was a great way to keep me interested after IHYS.
6The Embrace

This track gives off a very Blaqk Audio vibe for some strange reason. The chorus is wonderful and the harsher vocals in the verse are very nicely placed.
5A Deep Slow Panic

This track does a great job showcasing that AFI is still AFI. The chorus may just be Davey's best vocal on the album.

This song is so fun yet at the same time you can still hear the dark influence, especially in the chorus with the under-layered harsh vocals. The layering in the last chorus especially is some of the smartest work the band has ever done.

This song was kinda just "Rewind" done correctly. This was the direction I wanted to see the band take and for the one time they tried it, I can say they've succeeded. The electronics, to me, sound excellent and that chorus is just fantastic.
2The Face Beneath The Waves

Instrumentally this may be the best thing the band has ever done. It's just so pleasantly distorted and dark and such. Chorus is really cool, and although I feel the bands gets their point across with this, the track lacks a high point that I feel it needed to stand as a worthy AFI closer (not saying it's not, but still).
1Greater Than 84

This sounded like a track that could have been on STS or Crash Love. The guitar work is nice and Davey kills it with his vocal style. It's also probably the prettiest track on the album which is something I personally appreciate. It's also lyrically more AFI than practically all of these tracks which is very nice to see. Overall, I'm just glad they wrote this.
