AFI - The Art of Drowning

AFI - The Art of Drowning

Definitely the best stuff AFI has ever done. Before this, I wasn't a big fan of them, but The Art of Drowning has painted my face black and white. The Art of Drowning is undeniably a piece of complex art. Everything on the album, is sculpted with intricate detail and painted with energy. AFI's unique blend of hardcore and punk as presented on this album, will go unsurpassed for a long time to come. From a musician's perspective, you'll find that the songs are highly structured for live shows. I hope they can overcome their own work (an extremely hard feat) in the future.

This is a master piece, The mix with lyrics and the instrumental sound is so powerfull. This album seem at the same time similar and very different of Black Sails In The Sunset. The best elements has remained and progress. The emotion seem more and more present and I love it. The Jade Puget metal touch seems a perfect mix with Davey's lyrics. the apparition of Jade is, has my opinion, the best thing which could have arrived to AFI.

This album is cleary setting the bar for what afi has become over the last 6 years, jade , hunter, and adam are truely talent musicians, and jade is my guitar hero, and i owe a lot to this album and there new album Sing The Sorrow

I have liked AFI since this album came out. Everyone thinks that Black Sails is their best work, but I definitely have to say that this is far better.

I love AFI and nothing they do could ever be bad. With Davey doing the lyrics its no possible to suck.

The art of drowning is a great album, one of afi's best. it is cool to see how much afi's sound evolves with each cd. the art of drowning will leave you mistified by the lyrics alone. not to mention the bad ass music that will get you addicted. If you like this album, and haven't heard black sails in the sunset yet, just buy it and you will love it. this cd isn't my all time favorite out of all of afi's cds, but there was so much fire and feeling behind the lyrics. AFI will always come out with something fresh and different and i will always be a fan.

Black sails in the sunset was hella much better

I have liked AFI for two years the first album that i got was sing the sorrow but what made me really like them was all there old stuff like the atr of drowning one of there best CDs yet

AFI sound like 12 year-old pre-pubescent girls. Anyone interested in better music should check out The Viloent Threats.

the art of drowning, what can i say, the complex lyrics that make us think, with daveys powerful yet soothing melodius voice behind them, AFI has outdone themselves, not my fav AFI album i will say, but it is rated up there with the best of them i think, the music behnd daveys voice is addictive and the sounds that they manage to make with such simple instruments backed up with daveys voice send shivers down my spine, a devoted fan always.

Liked, but sing the sorrow is much better for me!!!
