I love the music of AFI and I thought this DVD was very good. Audience participation was great.
Well, what'd the voice say? If you build it, he will come?

"So yeah, it's that season again, the Christmas season, so it's time for record labels to slowly unleash a litany of items from bands who do not have a new studio record out. And for AFI it's a new live DVD entitled "I Heard a Voice".
"I Heard a Voice" features a live concert from the 2006 tour promoting the groups "decemberunderground", filmed at their largest headlining gig at the Long Beach Arena. It features songs primarily from the groups last two records, "Sing the Sorrow" and "decemberunderground", with a few older songs sprinkled in for good measure, including an excellent rendition of "A Single Second", featuring Tiger Amry's lead singer/ all around good guy Nick 13 singing vocals, a treat for those who like both AFI and Tiger Army.
So how is it? Although I would've liked some more bonus features, maybe the groups music videos thus far, some in studio footage, things of that sort as all you get are some interviews with the band and their fans and some hidden short video pieces, the overall quality of the DVD is excellent, although it does suffer from too many cuts coming far to quickly on top of one another, a sad development in the live DVD market. The performances are high energy and well played, and the DVD quality is excellent. The sound quality is top notch, availble in both 5:1 Surround and two channel stero.
For fans of AFI this is a welcome addition to their AFI collections. For those who maybe fairweather fans, or people who don't like AFI at all, this probably won't change their minds."
Screw the other reviews.

"Well, if your thinking about buying this... buy it twice because its worth every penny. Obviously there are a few things to clear up because of the other reviews. I have seen AFI live twice they are amazing they even sound better live than they do on album. This dvd looks exactly like... almost exactly like the two shows I seen. Also, people like to talk trash about AFI because they change their sound, me personally I can't stand a band that sounds the same on every album. These people cannot appreciate good music or good live music. When I bought this dvd I watched it at least 5 times the day I got it. All of my friends watched it, my parents, my grandma, and I didnt get any bad comments from any of them. My dad would go around singing AFI because, I've been into this band for many years..he wasnt a big fan but he knew some songs. I took him to a concert with me and he enojyed the hell out of it. He came home with a brand new love for AFI. AFI keep their music fresh, they change it up. If any of you were in a band would you like to feel like your making the same album over and over again. It would be boring and not worth the time. A true AFI fan can really appreciate anything and everything AFI do. Yes, all this is coming from someone who has every AFI album. Someone who listens to the hardcore AFI such as Answer That And Stay Fashionable, Very Proud Of Ya just as much as Sing The Sorrow and December Underground ...I listen to it all. Davey Havok has such a beautiful voice, not to mention hes very attractive. This dvd would be worth it. Also, the reason why they dont play a bunch of old songs is because they have been a band for a long time they have played alot of shows..those songs have been played enough..not that it wouldnt be nice to hear some more old stuff..just saying you have to think about these things...this is not 1999...this is 2007. No one should ever forget the older AFI its a great part of AFI, but the band changes and creates new sound...why should they be looked down upon for it."

"This DVD is great...
If you're an A.F.I fan you should buy it...
I love it a lot
the only thing that I didn't like that much was that they played all songs a little bit slower that in the original cd tracks."
