''[[NewSoundAlbum Crash Love]]'' was stated to be a "straightforward rock record" by the band, with a NewWaveMusic feel and focus on catchy, more upbeat songs. However, it [[BrokenBase caused some alarm]] due to percieved abandonment of their hardcore roots. Their most recent album ''Burials'' continues that merger of styles, featuring a dark, operatic feel to most of the songs.

* SurrealMusicVideo: "Snow Cats" off of The Blood Album has a trippy video with mirror images of the band playing, the camera zooming into the band members' eyes and mouths, slow-mo shots at points, and uncomfortable angles.

On their 1999 release ''Black Sails in the Sunset'', they supplemented their hardcore sound with {{Goth Rock}} influences. This trend would continue with their next two albums, ''The Art of Drowning'', which also brought in {{industrial}} elements, and ''Sing the Sorrow'', the latter album. adding some EmotiveHardcore elements into the mix and becoming AFI's breakthrough album and reaching #5 on the Billboard charts. Then Decemberunderground came around. While somewhat lighter in tone, it was a major success and produced some of AFI's most popular songs, such as "Prelude 12/21" and "Endlessly She Said".
