You don't need to replace Cities. Just take this for what it is. Another new Anberlin album. It feels like people hold Cities up so high that they won't be able to enjoy another Anberlin album until that day finally comes where they top it.

I still found this very enjoyable, and I think Vital will grow on me enough that it might beat out Cities. It's not like I got an instant boner the first time I listened to Cities. It grew on me, much like this album might do.

"I agree, Cities gets too much praise. It's been placed up on that pedestal by so many people for a little too long."

Yeah that's not really what I mean. I don't think it doesn't deserve the praise; it's the second part of what you're saying that starts to get irksome.

I know, I am not saying it doesn't deserve it. I just get a little sick of hearing about it. People just call back to it so often. It's like I said earlier, it's almost as if people can't enjoy any of Anberlin's albums after Cities because they can't stop gushing over it.

There are only 4 songs on Cities that are above average in my opinion (Hello Alone, Alexithymia, Dismantle, Fin). I find the rest extremely mediocre. How that album gets so much praise is beyond me.

I didn't know there was a deluxe edition of Cities or that the song was a cover. Go me.

Anberlin's cover of There's a Light is awful, which is too bad since I love the song and the band.

"Hello Alone, Alexithymia, Dismantle, Fin"

What? Is there any reason you picked these songs over the rest? Hello Alone is probably the worst song on the album, and Alexithymia is one of the weaker songs (though I quite enjoy it, as someone with self-diagnosed alexithymia)

If we are picking a top 4:
Godspeed, Unwinding Cable Car, No Mathematics to Love and Loss and Reclusion

With Fin following closely behind. I don't know why, but I love Reclusion. There's just something about it.
