Little Tyrants has instantly become one of my favorite Anberlin tracks! This album is awesome!

I'm hoping it plays at 33 or 45 rpm's so I can have more hope of being able to hear it. I'll be so bummed if I can't spin this record, it will be a waste of $19.98. ...Anyways, I personally think the 10" size is very interesting. It should've been limited.


it says right on the vinyl itself it plays at 33 1/3. this was after i already switched my record player to a different setting and then realized I didn't need to switch haha

I will preface this with saying that I am a huge Anberlin fan. I wasn't a big fan of Dark... however I could get into 'Impossible' and 'We Owe This To Ourselves' - but overall it was bland and the production was terrible. Never Take Friendship Personal was a landmark record for me. A real pure Anberlin record. Cities was kind of underwhelming after NTFP - and then I feel they picked it back up with New Surrender - which, in my opinion, was the best production Anberlin has seen.

Anyways - this record is just OK so far. I gave it one listen all the way through in the car today - and it seems muddy and all at the same energy level - with very few dynamics. 'Intentions' stuck out to me as a great pop-single effort, but the rest was 'meh'. While I agree its a welcomed departure from Dark... - I don't see all the hype. I also think the production is pretty awful - I expected better from Aaron.

This may change. But that's how I feel as of now.

Why is nobody mentioning Orpheum.
Easily my favourite song on the album. Has an M83/Bloc Party vibe (Waiting for the 7.18). So good

personally, I don't like either of those bands, but Orpheum is also my favorite song on the record.
