Kay I is gonna review an AFI CD cuz Shimby said I could! XD Kay so I'm gonna review my personal favorite AFI album, 'Black Sails in the Sunset.'|
bum kinda marks the turning of the feel of AFI from their original punk mission to more emo, "I worship the darkness, KILL THE LIGHT," woe is me kinda feel. Even tho I guess there's always been a bit of goth in the band... idk what I'm talikn bout I just freakin worship this band here's what I think of the songs:
1)"Strength Through Wounding" This song kinda only has like 6 lines and sounds kinda cult-y-ish. But it's great of you're feeling all suicidal and/or pissed off...
2)"Porphyria Cutanea Tarda" Kay, y'know how some movies, like ones made in the 80's, are considered "cult classics"? Well, this song also falls under that category. Except the made-in-the-80's part. Example: the end refrain of the song is "When daylight forms blinding walls/where do we go?/The darkness calls." 'Nuff said. What? I don't have that painted on my wall in huge letters!*shifty eyes*
3)"Exsanguination" This is an awesome song because it's kinda giving a perspective of a suicidal person. Or at least that's what I get out of it. Serriously, look at the lyrics. It's like your life's slipping away and you don't feel like doing anything about it. The instrumental part gives it this dark feeling too. I mean, the guitar and bass just toally make this song. Along with Davey's AMAZING voice.
4)"Malleus Maleficarum" Quite possibly my absolute favorite AFI song EVER. It's kind of an "I don't give a fuck what you think of me" song with Davey's trademark poetic goth twist. Woth those lyrics, a steady drum beat and a strong bassline, how can a goth rebel NOT love this song?
5)"Narrative Of Soul Against Soul" Um, I can't really describe this song and do it any justice. It's another good pissed of/exasperated song tho.
6)"Clove Smoke Catharsis" A slow song. Slightly depressing yet incredibly beautiful. ...I THINK it's a love song... but then again I'm no expert at decoding lyrics so yeah. STill love it tho. XD
7)"The Prayer Position" This song has a more punk beat to it. Lyrics-wise, it challenges religion and gives one the idea that Davey Havok wants to be worshiped... and he is. lol. It almost sounds as if he's dissatisfyed with the human race and the direction it's headed in. Well, so am I. Maybe that's why I like this song so much.
8)"No Poetic Device" AWESOMELY SHIBBY SONG to belt out at high-energy moments.
~will finish later~
