See... I can't bring myself to agree with the Sing the Sorrow favoritism. That album seriously broke my heart. AFI was my number one, all-time, super-duper, favorite band ever. I threw out all of my AFI t-shirts (stupid). I put my copy of Sing the Sorrow in the microwave. It was a bad time. I clung to the older material and pretended that nothing existed after Art of Drowning. When Decemberunderground came out, I acted like it was some new band that I'd never heard of. To this day, I've still never listened to any of the songs on it - not out of spite anymore, more of an ignorance. When you all started talking about Crash Love, I thought we were changing topics to another band. But no, apparently they came out with another album.
And I can't fully agree with Treez. I wouldn't say that I'm hung up on them being a "punk" band, because I don't like their punk albums. Like I said before, listening to the three punk albums they did will literally give me a headache today. I don't like how it sounds. At all. So I like Black Sails in the Sunset and Art of Drowning. I might have actually liked Sing the Sorrow if I hadn't thrown a bitch fit ten years ago (wtf, really? ten years?...) and brainwashed myself into loathing what they had become. "omg selloutz" doesn't even begin to describe how it made me feel. It was like my first serious girlfriend (we'll call her Havey Davok) broke up with me, told the whole school about my small wiener, and started handing out fliers for a mass Havey Davok gangbang in the cafeteria after school - BYOL (lube lol), must have a penis bigger than my effeminate ex-boyfriend.
I'd like to say that now that I'm older, I can give it another shot and have an unbiased opinion of it. But I think that's incorrect. I'd end up murdering my family or something from too much repressed emotion spilling out. Hot water burn baby.

I would spread the cloths under your feet: but I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
