Dulceria has to be the best Jade's production has been thus far. this mix is kinda perfect.



also holy fuck Hunter is insane

Far Too Near's chorus is good but everything else about it is so great. better chorus would have made this a gem but again, still good



Jade's going insane here too omg

Sounds like these two songs are much better than the last two. Though I'll admit "Looking Tragic" grew on me a bit, while "Begging For Trouble" was the much better of the two. I realized what it was about "Looking.." that rubbed me the wrong way at first - it's a lot like "Heart Stops" in that Davey kind of does this boring droll to match the lyric content. Like the "Wait a minute this maybe boring" line.

"but Heart Stops is amazing doe"



yeah, I like Heart Stops now - but that was a song that I didn't get at first. Took a while for it to warm up.

Far Too Near sounds like an average track that could have been on Blood or Burials. Nothing special about it, but not bad.



Dulceria is cool and different. Really dig the bass. My only gripe is that the song doesn't really develop or go anywhere and that was something that always made AFI so special in the past, their explosive climaxes. Great track none the less.



Twisted Tongues, Begging for Trouble and Dulceria as the 3 singles would have had me hyped out of my mind ... unfortunately the awful Looking Tragic and the average escape from LA and Far Too Near are making me skeptical.

Dulceria is the best song they released so far. Far Too Near is on right now - not hitting me the same way Dulceria did. It's okay. Twisted, Begging and Dulceria are by far the strongest of the 6 songs they've released so far. I hope the other 3 tie better into the album as a whole so I can enjoy them more. As standalone songs they leave much to be desired.

ya'll gotta get on the LA hype, davey's vocal delivery is on point.



and yeah, i wish Dulceria went somewhere bigger after the bridge which is probably the only thing holding it back from being a legit top AFI track but shit still slaps



Far Too Near really needs a different hook, could've been something amazing. hearing it really kinda solidifies (if it hasn't been already) the post CL, 2010's AFI sound is an era in its own right

The eras are incredibly well defined: first 3, all sails to AOD, STS to CL, Burials to This.

When is the album coming out again? At this rate feels like we’ll hear the whole album before it’s even out

On June 11th. Still have a couple months before release, and we've already heard more than half the album.
