Whomever wrote the review said something to the effect of 'waiting for this album since 2007'. Well for me, it's since 2005. I couldn't get into any of the last 3 albums at all. What's with putting a horse as your album cover anyways? I haven't finished listening to this album yet, but there's not one song I dislike or wanna skip thus far. Great job Anberlin!
I was going to wait until I could get something higher fidelity than a stream.... but I couldn't. And oh my lord is this good. Review was right, career defining. I've loved every one of their albums for different reasons, but THIS is Anberlin.
I guess I'm the only one thats not blown away after first listen.
My first impression is you can turn up the guitars and synth as loud as you want, won't matter if the hooks aren't there
Definite improvment on the last one though, I couldnt even get through that in one with one full listen
