AFI: Black Sails In The Sunset

Sound — 10
AFI are by far one of the best punk/hardcore bands around right now... This album is no exception... It was their first album with Jade as the guitarist, and it just proves that he made AFI even better... The sound quality is amazing, and I love this band because their music never seems to sound the same... It's always something new every CD, nothing becomes monotonous...

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics, as always with AFI, are puzzling... Davey uses a lot of metaphoric phrases in his writing, and it takes a while to figure out what he's talking about... And really, no one but him can ever know what he's REALLY talking about... His voice is amazing, and it's nice to hear a hardcore band with a singer that can really sing...

Overall Impression — 10
This album, though not their best, is still one of the greatest punk/hardcore cd's ever put out... With all credit due, the band put a considerable amount of effort into making this album, and it came out flawless... They managed to somehow make a punk rock album that sounds punk and doesn't at the same time... Good job, guys...
