The tone of the album emits the same horror/gothic punk vibe that suits AFI and Creeper, I’d even say that the opening tracks would fit right in on an early 2000s AFI album like ‘Sing The Sorrow’. I’d have loved more of the darker, heavier tones that Energy released here. But, I can’t deny that the catchy atmosphere they unleash with the rest of the album is probably the more hooking factor of ‘Apparition Sound’, the pop-punk vibes really drag you in. The main downer is that the album is over so quickly, even for eight tracks, it feels like the album just flies by before you can really get into it.
