the only songs i liked were self-starter, someone anyone, and God, Drugs, & Sex after listening for the first time. i think cities and new surrender are far superior. didn't really like the 80's vibe on some of the songs

I seriously expected heavier ? I don't really dig the slower tunes ... I have to listen again and after not getting up from nightshift to really base a good opinion on this ..
agreed. wasnt feeling the slower songs except the last song

Very true - both albums split time between being high energy, soft, and heavy. If one band understands creating dynamics across an album, it's Anberlin. And Haha, Modern Age is a monster.



Agreed on both points. Cities is definitely more diverse, while Vital is much more concise - I think both strategies worked nicely for their respective records.



Interesting choice of favorites - "Desires" and "Modern Age" did nothing for you? Or "Intentions" (80's-esque, but very NTFP).
ill have to give the album another listen!
