More or less exactly my thoughts.

I like this sound. Definitely not your standard alternative/emo album, but it keep the genre alive. Very nice, here comes another solid 9.

I give it a nine. I didn't really like any of their CD's so far, so when I found this one I was shocked. They played some more aeshetically pleasing songs, to fit my taste. I don't like all the songs, but Cable Car, and Fin especially are sweet. Simple progressions, but they realized how sweet 1, 6, 3, 7 is. (figuring minor as do)

It sounded more mature then their other CD's, in my opinion.

Without a doubt one of my favorite CDs! I gave it a 10! I pre-ordered it from the band as soon as I knew it was coming out. I was 11 when I first found out about Anberlin. I've loved them ever since. When I first got my copy, which was the day before it came out (SUCKA!), I was disappointed. It just sounded like they were ditching their "Blueprints For The Black Market" and "Never Take Friendship Personal" sound that I fell in love with; and the truth is they were. Anberlin has matured intensely! I loved their old sound, and now as they calm it down a bit... EVEN BETTER! Steven has one of the best voices I have EVER HEARD! I love it so much!
So for all of you who gave it a six. Give it another thoughtful listen. It's definately worth it!

Amazing cd. 10. The lyrics are deep and inspiring, and the music fits them almost perfectly. i do wish the guitars had a more raw sound but nevertheless this is one of my fav cds ever.

As much as I love Anberlin as a band, this is the only album of theirs I would give a 10 without thinking twice.

I've really come to love everything about the band, but I've always felt that Stephen Christian's vocal work was one of the best parts of the band. I firmly believe he is at his best here. He can easily go from demonstrating his amazing vocal range in one song to sounding brutally honest and real in the next. The other big reason I'm such a fan of Anberlin is because of their ability to write lyrics that convey emotion and feelings in an intelligent way. This album, I believe, features some of Anberlin's best lyrics to date(if I were asked to list a highlight, I'd probably have to include every song because I find myself constantly impressed with Stephen and Joseph's writing the more I listen to each song). Reading the lyrics to the songs is like reading poetry.

Of course, I also really enjoy their musicianship as well. They never fail to impress me with some of the catchiest musical hooks and choruses I've heard that constantly get stuck in my brain. However, unlike such subpar bands as Fall Out Boy and other bands in the same genre, these guys write lyrics that mean something and tackle personal and important issues with themselves, the people around them, and the world they live in, a higher level of musical ability and skill, and Stephen's voice is one of the best I've heard. Also, they really did an effective job at building mood on this album, especially with the intro leading up to "Godspeed".

So, yeah. This album definitely deserves a 10, in my opinion. I can't wait to see them continue to grow sharper as a band in the future.

Have you heard New Surrender?

I agree. They came close to tossing a no-hitter with this one.

Well if there was one not to own, that would be the one - although I'd still say it's worth it to pick it up. It's not as good as their previous stuff, but it's still Anberlin.
