The Bright Lights Of America


Released on April 1, 2008

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Produced by the legendary Tony Visconti, whose landmark achievements include work with David Bowie, T.Rex and Morrissey, the new album marks Tony's first collaboration with a punk rock artist to date. The result is Anti-Flag's most accomplished and diverse work thus far.

The sound and stance of this album will shatter all expectations about Anti-Flag. A new breath has been exhaled on the aggro-chant guitar-driven sound that their hardcore fans have grown to love. In new songs such as first single and title track "The Bright Lights of America," as well as "Vices" and "We Are The Lost," they cover uncharted territory, exploring themes of emotional turmoil and personal insight that will resonate with both new and old fans alike. Their sound and viewpoints have expanded, but their fierce ideology remains intact.

better than expected. songs 6 through 10 are a great stretch while listening in my car. underground network is still their #1. bright lights is still a little too poppy

this is anti-flags best album. It really shows how the band has grown and matured over the years. Their style has changed slightly, but it is for the better, plus it still has the familiar Anti-flag sound. You can see this in songs like "Spit in the Face." This is a very catchy album and I recommend it to pretty much anyone.

a really great album by A-F, especially when you see them live. best songs are 'good and ready', 'bright lights of america', 'if you wanna steal...', and 'the ink and the quill'. pick it up, and enjoy!

The first time I listened to it, I didn't find myself in a hurry to listen to it again. After a little while and a few more listens, I started liking it for what it was. It's not the same style, but it is good. Not their best work, but some catchy tunes and worth the buy.

This is a great album. I love all of anti-flags stuff and I don't really feel like they have drastic changes between albums so if you liked their last album then I think you will like this one.

i was really looking forward to this cd coming out. and i was really happy with it. yeah its diffrent than the other ones but i think its a good diffrent. it shows they have some range in their sound. and i like that it still has some political topics on it. its an amazing cd that any fan of theirs should get.

If you were expecting The Terror State or Underground Network this album is not for you. I must admit I didn't like the new direction after the first listen but after subsequent playings it has really grown on me. Don't knock the band for trying something new. If bands didn't try anyting new we'd all be listening to the same music. If you go in with an open mind you'll find there are some really good songs on this album.

As a former resident from the rusted shores of Pittsburgh, PA, I’m sorry to inform you that this CD pretty much flops! What happened to the catchy bass lines of old? The songs are very slow and similar. However, I did see improvement on the vocals. They still have the “Anti-Flag” gang vocals down to a T. This CD isn’t all bad; there are a few good tracks. But, all in all, it was a let down.

I'll have people disagreeing with me all over the place, but this album is not bad at all. Most Anti-Flag albums would have received a 5 star rating from me, but this gets a 4. Simply because it does sound a little too polished, and there aren't enough hooks. However, as a stand-alone record this is a good one by any standard. I wouldn't say there are any bad songs, but there aren't as many songs that stand out as much as in previous albums. I think the bonus track that seems to appear generally (Tar and Sagebrush) although enjoyable, different, and a bit odd sounding, shouldn't have been put on there when there are tracks like Tanzania, which is a terrific acoustic (for the most part) song that should have made the final cut. The passion, the ideology, and the fact that it is Anti-Flag, all qualify this as a good album, and there are a few catchy songs on there that you'll listen to over and over. It's certainly not a waste of money.

i never thought i would say this, but i am actually disappointed in an anti-flag album. their style up til this cd was raw energy and ideals. this cd sounds way too polished and, i hate to say, it sounds like mainstream rock. for them, that's really not a good thing. i hope this was an experiment and they get back to their old ways soon. i don't know if this was an attempt to attract new fans in the mainstream to quit bein so apathetic, but i think it will really alienate all their loyal fans.
