With possibly the most anticipated album over the last several years, AFI makes its major label debut with Sing the Sorrow, a record that will both bring in new fans and not leave longtime fans disappointed. In fact, they will be blown away with this beautiful masterpiece of melodic driving guitars and amazingly intense vocals. Track #5 even includes a powerful guitar solo, finally giving Jade a chance to show his prowess on the guitar. Fears that a major label release would cause AFI to sound much more produced were completely unfounded as this record fits perfectly into the amalgam of AFI releases. And there IS a secret track. Get this record NOW!!!

It is like a dream that you never want to wake up from...I swear I could listen to this albumn forever and not get sick of it at all. Davey Havok's voice has matured so much and is wonderful now...he can sing higher and hold his notes better. From the beginning to the end it is an endless marvel and with suprising lyrics and splendid instrumentals. Hardcore AFI fans are dying with enjoyment and regular fans are more then pleased and very suprised. Final note "Sing the Sorrow" is R-E-M-A-R-K-A-B-L-E! If you don't have it, it is a must buy!

People calling AFI sellouts for changing their sound need to wake up. Seriously, they just wanted out of the drab BS sound EVERY other Punk band had right now, and get into a more unique sound. They still are punk true and true, but they went into a more rock sound and I for one think we need to praise them, not put them down. GREAT job guys, love the new sound.

Definitely get this CD. It is GREAT!!! Sing the Sorrow is like nothing I've ever heard before! It's a little bit of some new sound that's totally awesome. Old A.F.I. fan or not, this album will not disappoint!

this is the first afi album i had ever heard, and its what got me hooked. they're my favorite band now. i think anyone that likes punk, metal and alternative music should have this in their collection. every time you listen to this album, you find it even more beautiful. i wish there was more stars i could give this.

This CD is really amazing and complex. I have heard nothing like it before. It is different from their old stuff, but still an awsome choice for an A.F.I. fan.

this is the best cd of the year! even if you don't normally like goth rock, go buy it anyway. there has never been anything like this on the shelves before, and i doubt there ever will be again. i got this cd not long ago and i listened to it for about five days straight just trying to figure it out. afi, here's to you.

First of all, AFI is one the best bands ever. This is, I think, their one of their best release yet. Jade's solo on track #5 (Dancing Through Sunday) is just amazing. These are very talented musicians that know how to rock. I recommend this album to anyone who enjoys rock music.

You would think that when bands turn to a major label they have sold themselves and have lost their credibility. Well let me tell u this is not the case! A.F.I has reached another level, they can still mix the pounding and powerful sounds of goth,the energy that is given with punk, of course the sound and the chemistry that could only happen between the bandmates(Davey,Hunter, Jade and Adam) and by putting it all together with Davey Havoks angelic voice and raging screams it just makes you want to cry. You will find yourself caught in the beauty and mistery of his lyrics. This album is great. But what can you expect, after all they are A.F.I. You just cant have an A.F.I favourite album they are all different, but still have the same impact on you. And that is what makes them so special, very few bands can have such an effect on a person.

They're not goth, they're not punk but who cares because the lack of scene makes them even more appealing. At first i had heard things from my friends saying they had sold out but the minute i bought the cd i said they didn't sell out they just got better. If you prefer the old stuff fine and if you're close minded fine but all in all whether or not you want to admit it this cd has totally blown the roof and reached a new level of greatness for them. If you don't buy this cd you are the biggest idiot in the world because no matter what style of music you like Sing the Sorrow will leave you begging for more.

I love the older AFI stuff, yes. I love Black Sails... It's probably the best AFI CD yet. But Sing the Sorrow... This is genious. Alot of AFI fans will say that they sold out... That since they are a bit more consumer friendly and they are signed to Dreamworks that they aren't as good as they used to be. I say, nonsense... If they weren't signed to Dreamworks, this new CD wouldn't be as great as it is. The point is: Everything fits into place with this CD. If you like AFI's old stuff, but you're up for change, definately get this CD. You know what, get it anyway! It's great. JUST GO GET IT! =D

The latest Album out by AFI "Sing The Sorrow" is way good. Althouth it has a little different style than the first albums it still has the unique and amazing sound of AFI.

I'm a newbie to the AFI scene and I must admit, I was kinda unsure about how much I would like the album...boy was I worrying over nothing. I can assure you that the album is great, the lyrics are deep and the band's performance is excellent. Even if you are not completely into this unusual style of music, this album will have you listening anyway. The songs are great and Davey's various performances for each of the songs make them truly unique along with Jade's fantastic guitar playing. Throw in some good bass and a riveting drum beat and this album certainly rocks.

After listening to Black Sails in the Sunset, All Hallows E.P., the Art of Drowning, and some of AFI's other music for so long, I thought that there was no way AFI could ever top what they had done. The songs they had written so far were by far the favorite of any band I had heard, and I couldn't imagine how they could come up with more songs that could possibly match those. With Sing the Sorrow, AFI has created their most artistic, moving, and possibly best album ever, though I could probably never place Black Sails, Art of Drowning, and Sing the Sorrow higher than one another. This album shows some of the best vocal talent of Davey so far as well as some of the most creative and pleasing new sounds in some songs. The violin section at the end of Death of Seasons with the quiet echo of Davey screaming in the background is amazing. The entire album moves with such fluidity and there are so many highlights. But without a doubt, what really sets this album apart is the entire last track. In ...But Home is Nowhere, Davey screams his heart out with honest passion with touching lyrics. The secret poem afterwards is so chilling and brilliant. It has an aura of mystery to it that makes one long to know where it is all coming from and what it means. The last song, This Time Imperfect, is incredible. When Davey sings his amazing high part it gives me chills through the whole thing; his voice is so powerful. On a side note, I just have to say something else about the album. I have heard so many people say that the new album "sucks", especially around people who are new to AFI. Whoever is an old AFI fan and says this seriously needs to re-examine themselves, not the band. It is so obvious to me and so ridiculous that these people are not giving the album a chance because AFI is becoming popular. They think they are too cool to listen to anything that is popular and that because AFI is now more popular, they aren't still the same band. Well, stop being ignorant and take the music at it's true value, which is musically and lyrically. Some people are so caught up in this new AFI stereotype they don't even give the album the chance because it is so different. But they don't realize that every AFI album has been completely different than the last one for the last five albums! I'll admit that I was a little unsure about this new album but after listening to it over and over it's so clear how much work they put into it and how amazing it is, musically and lyrically. The songs grow on you forever as is typical with any AFI album. This album begs to be listened to over and over. It has some very catchy songs at well, and it is not poppy AT ALL. There are a lot of heavier songs and overall, the album is balanced perfectly. Read the lyrics and see the passion and work that the band has put in, even if you don't agree with their ideas. Give this band a chance, whoever you are, and listen to this CD with an open mind. I hope everyone who wants to gets to see this band in concert. I saw them on March 11th and they were amazing. Enjoy this album, everyone. It is an untouchable masterpiece.
