Dear Lord, I just wet myself!, that was excellent. The first time I've been so impressed by AFI's new material in over 7 years.

I am so frigging stoked. This was awesome, too. And his voice had an old fashioned goth rock vibe to it he's never quite achieved before.

Then get out. Do you need to come into every AFI news post to post negative opinions and shoot people down? If he thinks AFI is back, then is his mind AFI is.

Far more impressed with this lyrically, to me this track combines the theme from Crash Love and the more somber tones of the older albums; seeing this live is going to be great.

@Acanthus Oh, lyrically? Definitely would fit on Crash Love. I was referring to sound direction only. It sounds very different than Crash Love; to me anyway.

Both the songs they have released for this album I feel will sound a lot better in the context of the full album. When I think about STS, Girls's like grey and the leaving song pt 2 were both singles and they were a couple of my least favorite tracks.. I still have very high hopes!

Feather

And calling those two tracks my least favorites is NOT a bash because STS is all awesome.

AFI, you have one fucking job: make an album that actually sounds like something post- Sing The Sorrow. DO NOT FUCK IT UP.

These two singles are also very promising, btw. I guess shitty album sales and fan reactions finally got their heads during studio time.

I believe AFI has one job: to make the album they want to make regardless of any fans crazy expectations. Sounds like that's what they are doing.

Everybody is saying they think these songs will be better in the album's context...am I the only one that views AFI songs as single things? I usually just listen to them on shuffle on my ipod or something, not an entire album start to finish...

Eh, I typically enjoy listening to AFI albums as a whole. Occasionally one song at a time, but normally they work better as full albums.

"am I the only one that views AFI songs as single things?"

Probably. AFI's albums always work better as a whole. Songs will flow into each other perfectly.

@Mabbit go listen to STS as a whole and you should understand. By the way I'm pretty sure that album is supposed to start with Bleed Black.

There's a hypothesis that the track order on Sing the Sorrow should be different.

@Mabbit The leaving song part 1 should definitely come before part 2 and part 2 is the 2nd song on the album while part 1 is the 11th song. Also bleed black for some reason just sounds like an opening track to me. It does a great job highlighting what to expect on the album. Bleed Black starts with one of Havok's infamous "Ohhh"'s. The first few lines just sound like album opening lines too,

I am exploring the inside, I find it desolate
I do implore these confines, now, as they penetrate, "recreate me"

I just feel like that is the true beginning of the album.. AFI fans may just be looking way too far into it though.

There is a theory that the album starts with bleed black and comes around and ends at leaving song pt.2. Theory states that its about the process of reincarnation(337) and the after life or something like that.

it's pretty much confirmed that bleed black is the first tune

I think the thing that made STS really great was the complexity of each song's composition. These new songs are a step
in the right direction, but they're kind of boring musically.

I don't think this alternate track listing it can ever be "pretty much confirmed" because it's all theory by fans. Unless it's specifically stated by the bands themselves, then it's just people pulling it straws about a supposed "mystery" the band created.
