I am so excited for the Search/Rescue cd. If it sounds like any of the songs we've heard, then it'll be a shoe-in for my top 5

Whoa that sucks about the Brand New / Thrice show fiasco. I hope that you can make a rescheduled show.

I was confused when you listed Dallas Green as best vocals of 2007 because I didn't know about the live album. But now I know.

Thank you for putting Stephen as top lyricist. He is an incredible writer, I am excited for his book and another Anberlin album of course.
