Black Sails In The Sunset

Nitro 15824

Released on May 18, 1999


AFI have reached a higher plateau of raw, powerful, hard-driven rhythms that are well done & have a twist that seperates AFI from the rest. They continue down the hardcore path & show no signs of letting up.

Awesome CD, its not like the first few album where its all funny and games, now they are more serious, its just a shame they changed their style for the worse on their last album

This was the album that originally got me into AFI and one of the first punk albums I owned. To me, this was the first AFI album that was a completely serious album and turned to more of their dark image as opposed to albums before that featured comical lyrics and just seemed less serious. Though this is not as hard as their first few albums, it is, in my opinion, AFI's best album (I'm not a fan of the last two albums). If you like AFI, this is a must buy. Everything from Havok's deep, cutting lyrics, Adam Carson's brilliant drumming and classic group chanting/singing, this is what AFI is about.

I can't believe I waited so long to buy this CD...I have all of AFI's other work, and this is the last one I bought, and I wish I wouldn't have waited so long...

This is quite possibly the best AFI album there is (besides Sing the Sorrow, of course). It's better than everything before it and most of everything after it.

If you are an AFI fan but dont know much of thier older stuff, pick this one up'll blow you away. I highly recomend any song on this album, especially Maleus Malificarum, The Prayer Position, No Poetic Device, and of course God Called in Sick Today.

With this album, AFI solidified themselves as a legitiment punk band, now if you dont have this album, legitimize yourself as an AFI fan...pick this one up.

I really enjoyed this album, but gave it 4 stars. This is the second time I've owned this album. I bought it, then lost it, and now bought it again. It's just not as good as I remember. I think in part because I've been listening to The Art of Drowning lately. Don't take my word for it, though. Go buy it and make up your mind. I still like this album... much better than Decemberunderground!

i'm more of a fan of old afi. so i'm comparing this to other afi cds. don't get made that i rated it a 3. i think that all the good songs are in first half of it. if you like fast punk rock i suggest "answer that" or "shut your mouth" but if you are into industrial/dark i suggest "art of" and "sing the sorrow".

This CD is really good. I loved it from the first time I put on. Any AFI fan needs to add this CD to their collection. I think you should buy it now.

My old copy of Black Sails was finally destroyed after years of playing; and buying my second copy also enables me to say to everyone here that this is the AFI album you should buy first. There are better songs on subsequent albums, but this is by far their most solid release alltogether. The first album by the "new" AFI, featuring Jade on guitar, is a hardcore classic, and if you call yourself an AFI fan, this is beyond essential. Sing the Sorrow might be darker; and Art of Drowning might be more melodic, but this is where AFI first began to shine. And it's awesome.
