Definitely. Maybe on the same level. Idk I wasn't as impressed with Cities on first listen as I am with this and I had similar expectations for each album because I loved Never Take Friendship Personal and saw them live a year before Cities.

Winrar I totally agree. I thought they should go back to how they sounded on Cities after they made New Surrender. I could appreciate the more mature sound with Light/Dark, but I felt the album suffered writing and consistency.

This is the perfect Anberlin.

"I really did not sit well with New Surrender."

Album as a whole is not exceptional, but the top songs off that album (Feel Good Drag, The Resistance, Breaking, maybe a couple others) are among Anberlin's best.

I'm on my 6th or 7th playthrough now, and it's getting better with each listen. The solo in Little Tyrants blows me away every time. The album's at about a 4.25 right now, will probably go up to a 4.5 soon. This band never fails to blow me away. Even the B-side from this album that they released for free (Safe Here) is an awesome song.

their b-sides tend to be awesome, the best song they ever wrote was a b-side

that'd be The Haunting

I don't know if I'd call the Haunting their BEST song, but it is definitely at the top of the list. That song is incredible. The Perfect Tourniquet is another b-side of theirs that happens to be one of my favorites.

pretty much this. surprising considering sprinkle produced it. i'm sure i'll like this more once i'm able to listen to a 320 kbps version though.

"The songs are great but the sound production is pure shit. It's compressed and bland and everything just melts together"

I'm listening to Self-Starter, and honestly I think it's the format more than anything. I can just hear how fucking shitty the quality is, so I'm hoping it's less the production and more the format.

Anyways I'm fucking excited to hear this. They're actually coming to San Diego tomorrow. I don't know why the fuck I didn't buy a ticket... I wanted a friend and all of my Anberlin-liking fans are busy tomorrow. Still I should have just gone by myself >_>

Yeah, I agree---this is fantastic. This is easily more consistent than Cities, but it's hard to say whether or not the peaks will be as high as Cities'. I'll have to give this a few more listens first.

On first listen it's a 4.5 though.

When I go back home, I'm going to give this album a proper listen on my brother's Sennheiser's. Then I'll let you know. Still, I'm still edging towards it not being my speakers though. They're alright for laptop speakers and wouldn't unnecessarily clip unless I'm blasting the music, which I wasn't.

For me this is like a 4.5 on the first listen! My favs so far are Other Side, Desires, and Modern Age.
This is as good as Cities. I like how every song is unique and how some songs the guitar is tuned to
drop B, I never expected them to make songs with that tuning. So blown away on my first listen, the
2nd and 3rd should be more better.

The first half of this album had me thinking it could match Cities.
But after hearing the whole thing, I'm thinking it's third, behind NTFP. Gotta give it some time to grow, though.

might be behind cities but it's definitely better than NTFP
