The Haunting is awesome, agreed.
I'm not a huge fan of their covers though.
"There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" for example is one of my favorite songs ever.
Mix in Anberlin, my favorite band, and what do you get????
a dud : (

I'm actually not familiar with the one you're referring to though. I'd listen but I'm too busy
listening to No Love to Speak on repeat

Really? I love their covers. Maybe it's because I am as in love with Stephen Christian as you can love someone without actually knowing them, but their covers of The Promise, Mother, and True Faith (for example) do so much for more me than the originals.

You should certainly check out Baby Please Come Home. It rocks hard for a Holiday tune. Also, for someone so eager to trash on Lost Songs, it doesn't seem as though you've listened to the whole album, eh? ;)

Hey man, I've listened to Lost Songs, okay!!!
It's just... been a while.
IIRC The Promise was great too but I didn't realize it was a cover. Was Mother the... Danzig(?) cover?
I think I just prefer Anberlin-style music from Stephen, though I admit his voice makes pretty much
anything better.

But fine I'll go RElisten to it and give you an accurate rating. Another time though, still jamming
these B-sides

That's fine...take your time. Just don't forget!

The Promise is a cover of the song by When In Rome. You've probably heard the original at some point in your life. It likes to play on classic alternative/pop stations quite often (around here, anyway). Mother is indeed a Danzig cover, so pat yourself on the back for that one.

Honestly, if Anberlin had a different vocalist/lyricist, I don't think I'd like them half as much as I do now.

I never put off listening to Anberlin lol. Although with limited internet in India we'll see.

And yeah? Cool I'll check out the original and see if I know it. And I only know Mother as a Danzig cover because I remember watching a video of them playing it live I think, I've never even heard of Danzig lol

And yeah of course, Stephen's voice puts the band on another level. Lyricist maybe. He's great when he wants to be, but the entirety of DitW is more or less generic. Of course then we have songs like fin, Inevitable, etc. that are awesome too, but I do wish he were more consistent (although Vital was so maybe bad lyrics are behind them)
