My opinion of this album has changed dramatcially. I too find it to be pretty boring as a whole. I don't think I like the direction they've taken. When my girlfriend and I saw them live, they pretty much played nothing but STS and DU songs. There was 1 Art of Drowning song, 1 All Hallows, 1 Black Sails, and 1 Shut Your Mouth.....everything else, STS or DU. Lame. When I saw them the first time, when STS came out (I've been a fan for longer, but this was my first opportunity to see them live), their set was alot more varied. They played about an equal amount of songs from all their albums aside from the first three where they only played one from Shut Your Mouth and one from Very Proud of Ya. That show was awesome.
But yeah...I think a few songs on DU are pretty cool, but as whole, I'm really bored with the album. That's never happened to me with an AFI cd before, either.
