Burials opens with two of AFI’s most theatrical and haunting numbers yet, before injecting a healthy dose of pop into the mix with potentially the record’s best track, A Deep Slow Panic. The rest of the album maintains a steady pace, an upbeat tempo kept in check with your typical AFI darkness before Anxious rounds things out with a tidal wave of emotion. AFI teased fans for months with Burials, and the final product is worth every second of painstaking suspense. Not since 2003’s Sing The Sorrow have AFI produced such a captivating record.
