I used to love this band, but I can't stand Crash Love at all. They dropped their whole sound and wrote a few ballads with a couple of misplaced 'Woah's thrown into the mix.
This is one of the better songs on the album, and 'Sacreligious' is tolerable but over-all I miss the DecemberUnderground type sound.
You're kidding, right?
Crash Love is miles ahead of Decemberunderground (which was borderline unlistenable). I mean, it's no Sing The Sorrow, but it's definitely a step up from their previous effort.
Anybody who's been a fan of AFI for any significant amount of time knows that their sound changes (sometimes pretty dramatically) with every album. Sing The Sorrow is my favorite of their albums, but it's pretty foolish to get so stuck and attached to any particular "sound" when it comes to this band. They'll never make another STS or another DU (thank God), I just want the albums to be good, regardless of what the "sound" is.
