Sound — 10
The sound on this album is incredible. Jades guitar playing on this album is amazing I have never heard anything like it he plays low notes so well its incredible and when it comes down to muting and palm muting he is amazing. Hunter can defenitely play the bass and he plays with such attitude in heart on this album it's just really amazing how he does it. Adam is an amazing drummer and he is probably one of the best in the punk-rock history I mean his tempo on the drums is just incredible, like sometimes hell bang the shit out of them and sometimes he might just play something softly.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics on this album are amazing and AFI have gotten more mature in songwriting structure. I think this album is more of rock album than a punk album. Davey Havok is one of the best singers in the history of punk rock and just plain normal rock. He plans out his lyrics so well like in some he'll say something poetic, in some songs theure is crazy singing and most of the album is just all out intelligent lyrics.
Overall Impression — 10
This album cannot compare to any other albums because AFI have their own sound of rock on this album. I love everything about this album and I hate nothing about it, it just kicks total ass. If it were stolen/lost I would defenitely buy it again. I would recommend this album to any fans of punk rock, hard rock and just any people that want to try out AFI I would really recommend this album it defenitely gets 5 stars because it is one of the best albums out there today so get it now!
