First off I hope Clay and Hampton don't get pissed at me for using their joke as the set up for my bitter comments about AFI's new record. Now on to AFI. First off I want to say that I'm a long time AFI fan. Also I'm the type of person who loves to hear a band evolve and grow. I've been an AFI fan since Very Proud Of Ya. And I loved they way their music grew and changed from that record up through Sing The Sorrow. In fact despite people screaming "SELLOUT!" because Sing The Sorrow was released on a major label, I fucking love that record. It's definitely one of their best. Now Decemberunderground? I hate it. It's shit. I guess it might not be a bad pop record, but why would a band want to water themselves down to the level of synth pop? Now, to be fair I really should have put Jade in the comic since he's the primary songwriter for the music, and I haven't been able to get past the music to really listen to the lyrics, but Davey's the vocalist and therefore the face of the band. also the joke works better with Davey than Jade. There's a couple of songs I like on here...but over all I really don't like Decemberunderground.
