I was looking to get into some of AFI's older stuff, e.g. Black Sails, Art of Drowning, Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes. (Or even their stuff before that if it's good)

Which would be the best album to get first to get into their older stuff?

answer that and stay fashionable and black sails in sunset.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Agreed.

Amazing lyrics, incredible energy, great songwriting, no filler tracks.
The only fault I can find is the extreme similarity in verses between The Last Kiss and At a Glance, but they're both great songs, so I don't really care.

It depends what you listen to already though...
Shut Your Mouth and Black Sails are incredibly aggressive; Answer That and Very Proud of Ya are more straight up bay-area hardcore; Art of Drowning contains much more melodic songs.

That said though they're all very accessible. Get them all.

Backed.

Also try to get the A Fire Inside EP if at all possible.

R.I.P. Shaun Hand from Metal Sucks. He leaked this album and now Jake Bannon is going to crush his skull

Is it weird that one of the songs I liked least on it was "Sacrilege", the one where they actually try to make a punk song?

That's actually the song that got me into old AFI thanks to THPS3. I pretty much shat bricks the day I realized they were the same band that released StS.

Very Proud of Ya is one of the only 20 song albums I can think of where there are very few fillers.
