AFI – Crash Love album review

3 stars (out of 5)

‘Crash Love’ is the eighth studio album from alternative rock back AFI and features their latest single ‘Medicate’, which was released in October 2009.

The new album, which was two years in the making, is quite different to their previous ‘Decemberunderground’ and while it isn’t as strong as it’s predecessor, it’s still a great listen and will be huge with AFI fans everywhere.

Lead vocalist, Davey Havoc said: “Honestly I’ve never been more proud of an AFI record. We are thrilled to hear it come to life.”

The single ‘Medicate’ is a really catchy and memorable song with a good sound and lyrics; it’s easy to see why it was chosen as the first release from the new album.

‘End Transmission’ is a great track and is one of my favourites; you can really imagine dancing along to this one at a gig and ‘Beautiful Thieves’ is another highlight of ‘Crash Love’ as it’s a catchy song with a really strong chorus.

‘Veronica Sawyer Smokes’ is definitely another one of the standout tracks; it’s a brilliant song with memorable lyrics that would make it a great next single.

‘Crash Love’, which is available now, is a really good album and some of the tracks will be excellent for getting the crowd going for their 2010 tour which will hit the UK on 5th April in Rock City, Nottingham and finishes up in Newcastle on 11th April.
