UTG's Anberlin Essentials & Memoirs

Posted by - 04:26 PM on 01/17/14
In honor of the recent Anberlin news, Under The Gun Review compiled a list of essential Anberlin tracks as chosen by writers, musicians, and other industry folks. Members of Go Radio, Emarosa, Longtime Anberlin producer Aaron Sprinkle, and several others contributed -- I myself added "Dance, Dance, Christa Paffgen." Check out the playlist and writers' thoughts here, and let us know your essential Anberlin songs in the replies.

Dance, Dance = my favorite Anberlin song. During their AMA on Reddit I asked if they could come and play it in DE for me. I got a hilarious response from Christian. I was a total fan girl about it.

The fact that there is no "Art Of War" or "Closer" is questionable.

It was pretty heavy on the old stuff. Obviously we're all old nostalgic beings.

Good songs. Not great songs.
And I actually think Closer is kind of a miss.
I'm guessing Dark Is The Way... was your first Anberlin record?

Haha this is really cliche but man I still remember the first time I heard Anberlin. It was downtime right before finals and my high school morality teacher played "Godspeed" for a few of us and he said "go get this album." It blew my mind then and it still does now. Just so much energy.

the first song I ever heard by them was "Glass to the Arson" so it has always been one of my favorites. The "Dismantle.Repair." and "fin" combo is so powerful and has to be favorites of mine as well

I went back and re-listened to their entire discography yesterday and today and made a playlist on Spotify.

Soooo many great songs. My favorites would be Breaking, A Clamor And A Whisper and (*Fin).

Art of War is definitely one of their greatest. I'd add that one, The Haunting, Modern Age, and Audrey, Start The Revolution! to this playlist. Such a cool feature, and it's great to hear what these songs meant to so many other people.

Glad to see "The Resistance" get a mention on the list, easily one of my favourite album openers of all time
