I don't think it's any coincidence that AFI started to put out brighter/glossier/more commercialized/overproduced music soon after they switched from Dreamworks to Interscope. DU and Crash Love aren't totally awful (both have many great songs despite the lame overcompressed major label production), but coming from Sing The Sorrow, it's like night and day.
my rhymes eat whatever they want, they're on Mariah Carey's diet
I still think DU turned out as a good record, whatever went on in the background the band still wrote those songs. I'm just excited for a new record.

EDIT: my memory got the best of me. search for the post. still think what i said is true though, especially when taking a look at songs like fainting spells. also, speculation on a new label, anyone? I want this board to get interesting again.
Jerry Finn was one of the reasons Sing The Sorrow is so damn good.
We're going to get a little sort of a session going. A session that will feature the rhythm section.
I have pretty high hopes for the new record since CL was a step in the right direction. All members are doing their own thing and hopefully getting out some of their artistic ideas, so we can hope they now can make a good AFI record.
