‘The Missing Man’ provides an indication that AFI are returning to capture our hearts once again.

As a stopgap between LP releases, The Missing Man is a step forward in AFI's adult evolution and another catalog highlight.

AllMusic AllMusic

Benefitting from a runtime that doesn't overstay its welcome or put too much on the plate, AFI make the most of this short length by covering their fundamental poles of spry punk and mature alt-rock, offering both energetic and gloomy moods, making it a complete and satisfying package.

It’s true that The Missing Man likely won’t stay around long in the public consciousness, even for AFI fans, but for a short blast that goes back to what made a great band as great as they can be, this will undoubtedly suffice.

In The Missing Man, AFI have carved out an EP that not only satisfies their long-time fans but also gives enough of a taste of what is to come in the next chapter of their ever-evolving discography.

It’s a nice, quick dose of AFI that reminds you why you fell in love with them.

As perfunctory as most of the decisions are across these five tracks, a sense of enforced edginess makes this EP a cute and endearing experience.

Once again, they reassert that they are a force to reckon with in the emo-rock genre.

What a great EP this is; AFI once again proving that they are a class act as they explore a variety of avenues, yet never sacrifice the core of their identity.

AFI have absolutely not let me down in this EP, with the only critique being that it’s not bloody long enough.

While AFI fans might be a little disappointed that this isn’t a feature album, although the band have promised one is coming soon, they should be over the moon at just how good this EP is.

HEAVY Magazine HEAVY Magazine

Overall, the EP might not seem entirely cohesive, but The Missing Man boasts its own characteristic sound unlike anything AFI have done.

Taking away everything we know about the band in the past, this new release showcases a very talented band, capable of playing a whole range of different styles they haven’t been able to hone in on yet.

AFI is always pushing boundaries and never conforms to cookie-cutter expectations and this EP demonstrates just that.

My pod. My pod was getting old and here’s something new. I’m buying and I haven’t even heard the rest. Love the beat already. November can be over with already and I would like to see the album grow a couple of songs. :)

Evolved Love old AFI, love new AFI. They’ve changed over the years as you know. Nobody can put out hard punk for 30 years. This is a great way to make the change.
