Three things this isn't: STS Pt. II, dark, heavier. Three things this is: a comeback, better than the last two, not a disappointment.

Based Darvey coming through here. Best vocal performance and bass since StS, and the choruses are so fucking strong. Gang vocals like the good ol' days.

Uhm, this is their worst album yet. It's just a bunch of generic rock anthems with Davey
Havok's voice over them.

Amazing album! Whilst I am fan of December Underground and Crash Love, this album blows them away! The only song I really have an issue with is 'Heart Stops' which is catchy but maybe too cheesy. Much more aggressive and dark than Crash Love, also THE INTRO SONG IS SO COOL! I recommend listening to The Sinking Night, I Hope You Suffer, Wild and Anxious (my personal favourites I think)!

4.0 excellentGreyShadow | October 14th 13

Alright. Realistically this is a 4. I really can't get over the lack of a softer track
which are normally this band's stronger points. I also can't get over how there are
literally no big moments in any of these songs. Like really, "The Face Beneath The Waves"
just needed some sort of epic bridge to be a worthy AFI closer. It had so much going for it
with the dissonance in the verses musically but oh well. Still, this has some great tracks
such as "The Embrace", "Wild", "A Deep Slow Panic", and "17 Crimes". Yet, nothing sticks
out as one of the best tracks I've ever heard by this band. Hopefully that will change. I
remember when "...But Home Is Nowhere" was my least favorite on STS.

4.7 collective bull shit. I'm one-ing until this gets more balanced.

AFI finally comes back from the dead with Burials. This was an album they needed to release, & renewed
efforts at composition & constructing melodies are evident within the first 2 tracks.

IMO, I hope they can progress back to the complexity of Sing the Sorrow, which still remains to be their best
purley from a compositional standpoint. STS felt like they were on the verge of a band defining sound, &
Burials feels like them picking up the pieces to try & lay a foundation for something akin, but different.

"Heart Stops" and "A Deep Slow Panic" still bring the radio friendliess, but more tastefully this time around &
renewed interest in NIN like electronic elements via "The Conductor", & creating songs that take their time in
the verses to display a story (Arcade Fire's recent "Reflecktor" comes to mind with some of the guitar
noodling): these all help differentiate "Burials" from "Decemberunderground" & "Crash Love".

Good stuff; I hope the band takes more time to make new music & revisits more older material in their tours.
It would do them a huge service to relearn from their past selves.

"I Hope You Suffer", "17 Crimes", "No Resurrection", & "The Embrace" are worth looking up.

3.0 goodschoonda | November 1st 13

Solid album hindered by the boring and repetitive last track.

Bump

3.5 greatThomas Sanborn | October 25th 13

why is the bridge of basically every track the best part of each of them? it's kinda weird. good album, though.

1.5 very poorKayne West | October 21st 13

of course this site is getting their dick wets over this album....its so bad and full of cringe

Bump

3.0 goodxAshtrayux | October 15th 13

"After first listening seems a lot like Crash Love, but a bit darker and a lot more solid."rAfter giving it another spin, actually seems worse than Crash Love. Rather bland, in fact.

Bump

4.0 excellentjoshkat galeos | October 10th 13

Yeah! It's more than I expected. Crash Love was a very average album but this got potential. I'll spin this for the whole week.

Bump

All four tracks released so far have been tight. Stoked for this.
