AFI have been around since the late 90s, and have seen a lot of change over that time. They've embraced the evolution of punk rock as they have morphed from a hardcore band to a more diverse group that has incorporated a whole lot more than just their signature sound.
Throughout their career, AFI have been responsible for many of the most memorable rock songs of all time. From the gothic rock of their early days to the sleazy glam-rock of today, they've always been able to find a way to make their music sound fresh and exciting while still being recognizable as AFI.
What's more, a lot of their songs are actually quite good. This makes AFI a band that's worth listening to again and again, no matter how long you've been a fan of their music.
AFI's latest album is an interesting and complex work that continues their evolution. The 11 track ode to the human body is a tour de force in terms of musical design, combining elements from different genres to create a rich and unique experience.
In the end, however, it's AFI's ability to blend the best of their various influences that really stands out.
There are several notable achievements on Bodies, but the most impressive is how they managed to merge everything from a sexy rock song to a futuristic space-age infused pop track to a surprisingly tame and subtle acoustic ballad that's as much about the lyrics as it is about the performance.
