Once again, another gem from AFI. It's definitely different than previous AFI albums, but I would say it is most comparable to Sing the Sorrow. There are uses of drum machines and beats in a few of the songs. A few are quite catchy and poppy with what I would say has an 80s feel to it. Give it a couple listens through before passing judgment. If you have preconceived notions of what you think it will sound like, you may get too wrapped around what you expect vice what you get. Great album.
