Well this is super hard. Anberlin is my favorite band. Of all time.
Blueprints for the Black market
Wasn't bad. Pretty good for a first album. No real problem with it, just don't like it as
much as the others.
Best Tracks: Change The World, Glass to the Arson
Dark Is The Way, Light Is A Place
Again, wasn't bad. But wasn't good. "Closer" was just kind of annoying with the one
word chorus. Take Me (As You Found Me) and You Belong Here were kind of out of
place. Down sounded too much like Unwinding Cable Car.
Best Tracks: We Owe This To Ourselves, Impossible, Pray Tell, Depraved
Kind of a let down after Cities, but still had some good tracks. Some of the poppier
tracks just weren't up to their standards. Also, the re-do of Feel Good Drag didn't
seem any better or seem necessary.
Best Tracks: The Resistance, Breaking, Disappear, Breathe,
Never Take Friendship Personal
Pretty consistent, no real weak tracks.
Best tracks: Never Take Friendship Personal, Paperthin Hymn, A Day Late, Feel Good
Drag, Dance Dance Christa Paffgen
Vital has a few of their best songs and might be their most "experimental" (it's the
only one with this much electronics) But Intention's is a bit of a weak track, and I
expected the album closer to be better. (But maybe that's just because of my
extremely high standards for them)
Best tracks: Self-Starter, Other Side, Someone Anyone, Innocent, Modern Age
One of my favorites of all time. Cities is the most complete Anberlin album, and
possibly most consistent.
Best tracks: Godspeed, Unwinding Cable Car, Hello Alone, Inevitable, Dismantle.
|Ranking is true|
|This list gets my stamp of approval. Except for Vital being so high; I think its overrated|
|^ I kind of agree with that, but I love it nevertheless|
|I think #6 is truly underrated. "Readyfuels" and "Glass To The Arson" are awesome.|
|6 is definitely underrated, "The Undeveloped Story," is also great. |
|ranking is very very true|
|DitW is underrated, album rules |
Aside from that I agree
Closer has more words in its chorus the 2nd and 3rd go
despite sounding like Unwinding Cable Car Down rules
I don't think Take Me As You Found Me was out of place but You Belong Here is the weak spot
|Ranking is pretty much correct, 4 and 3 along with 5 and 6 are pretty interchangable for me. 1 and 2 are good though|
|2 > 1 > 5 > 3 > 4|
|Cities, Never Take, New Surrender, Vital, Dark, Blueprints|
|Vital sounds like shit. I could've created something better-sounding in my closet with 1 microphone|
|Lakes you know it's true bro|
|idk Vital sounds fine to me now. the only thing that bothers me is that random lower-register synth in Innocent but let's be honest the song has bigger issues that that, the overly-dominant piano in Orpheum (bad mixing) and of course Modern Age's chorus|
