Looking For, put me to sleep about 30 seconds in, what a lack of energy.
Begging wasnt too bad though.
Looking Tragic is pretty ugh
Begging For Trouble is good but just feels lacking. for what it is, a pleasant listen but i can't help but find it disappointing
Digging: Hail the Sun - New Age Filth
Oh wow both songs are ass what a complete shocker.
Digging: Kenny Mason - Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut
the last 2 were incredible so i'm actually pretty shocked tbh
Not as good as the first two songs but these are still alright.
The album cover is pretty sweet. So at least there's that.
The first 2 singles were awesome. Looking Tragic is trash. Begging for trouble is good though. Slightly less optimistic about the album and disappointed AFI is releasing so many singles with the album drop so far off, it always ruins the surprise/magic of the release.
Jade finally cut his hair, holy fuck
Instrumentally I really like Looking Tragic but those lyrics are some of the worst Davey has written
They're on Rise now lol
Digging: Sex-Dragoon - Mayo
i actually quite like the lyrics for both lol
minus maybe the looking tragic bridge, that's gotta, ironically, be the biggest mess i've heard from this band
Damn. No epic AFI for a couple years I guess. Last LP was their best.
i feel like Twisted Tongues has a pretty epic vibe to it
i stand by that verse being one of their best
"Last LP was their best."
Blood was sincerely my least favorite AFI album maybe other than Answer That and Stay Fashionable. Missing Man ep was a great rebound though.
i've never had hype go from 100 to 0 so quickly after hearing the first two singles and hearing looking tragic. Holy shit that's awful.
Looking Tragic gives me Dreamcar vibes and I loved that project so I'm not too put off.
@keaton Begging for Trouble is good at least.. keep the hope alive.
Wtf these songs are shite
Sure is a lot more grey hair on these chaps.
Bar Hunter of course.
Looking Tragic just doesn't feel like I need to listen after the first chorus
As much as i love AFI these songs were pretty dull and uninspired. There's usually a few good songs on a trash AFI album so i'll still listen.
they called this album weird and ive only really gotten than vibe from escape from la with the delivery in davey's voice dichotomizing the sugary new wave vibe for the verse (which i love)
Begging For Trouble is kinda like if 17 crimes was released on crash love and i'm for it
again, just wish it went somewhere
I like this 80s influenced vibe they have going on but I'm not really a fan of any of these songs (and I enjoy every album they've put out)
Their last few albums were some of the band’s best work in my opinion. This just sounds really flat.
Digging: Greta Van Fleet - The Battle at Garden's Gate
Hey I know these guys from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
Digging: Motorpsycho - Kingdom of Oblivion
I was totally right about this album being their worst now.
Hunter commented on some instagram comment criticizing it uh oh
man....these are both a huge step down from the last two tracks that were released. I was actually kind of pumped about a new AFI release for the first time in....I don't know how many years, not sure I'm too stoked anymore.
... what did he comment? and on what
instagram, a Looking Tragic post, and someone made a negative post about the song. he commented sarcastically and then said he couldn't fathom how despite how disappointed you could be (sympathizing with that feeling), going out of your way to criticize an artist on their page directly
also, i'm pretty sure they noticed White Offerings wasn't getting great reception and stopped playing it live so I'm wondering how this one will fare
and yeah it is kinda wild how much better the first 2 songs were than these 2. the first 2 just keep getting better to me, it's crazy. they're keeping my hype alive
They stopped playing White Offerings because it wasn't as fun to play live as they thought it would be. Probably a combination of how it translated live and the crowd reception. I don't think they generally care about sputnikmusic or instagram comments when deciding what to play live. It'll depend on how it goes when they try to play it.
i guess i was trying to imply that the negative reception would translate into the live setting from the crowd but why imply when you can just say lol
Hard to say. Thousands of people are quietly liking those songs. 20 people that generally don't like AFI these days anyway are leaving comments. Plenty of people left the same kind of comments when Get Dark came out and that song killed it live.
Missing Man was SO good! These do nothing for me
Actually can't stop listening to Looking Tragic... album will slap =]
Looking Tragic was catchy and a simple-but-neat video. But I was surprised how old the band was looking... it surprised me to learn that Davey's like 45 now.
Begging for Trouble was a better song, and the music video was pretty damn cool.
Looking forward to this.
i don't even dislike the sound of Looking Tragic, i just feel so underwhelmed by it. I prefer the entire Dreamcar album
Their recent mixes suck all emotion out of the songs
New songs are just fine and hold some old school 90's feel to them. Wish the production was a tad bit crunchier.
@Grey makes sense of him to go off on rude “fans”. I’m still an AFI lover, only 1/4 new tracks wasn’t doin it for me. This late in the career, that’s a HUGE win in my mind!
Isn't jade producing and mixing their albums now?
He's producing, not sure that he's mixing and mastering.
Just looked it up. Jade only Produced Blood Album and someone else mixed and mastered. On Missing Man he both produced and mixed the ep, but did not master it. It is possible he could be doing it all for this one haha.
not bad, honestly the only concerning thing is how short these last 2 were while also feeling underdeveloped and I hope that's not a trend
Jade production has just been feeling a little thin. I imagine he's doing it because he wants to though
"Wait a minute this may be boring..." is gonna be the tagline for the first review isn't it?
I loved the way Missing Man sounded. Bodies sounds a bit more flat.
