Anberlin Never Take Friendship Personal
Anberlin Vital
Anberlin has yet to make a bad release. In my opinion this is easily their best record to date. I give this album a slight edge over cities just because of the new grounds exlpored and the diversity. Best tracks here are the fantastic opener "Self Starter", the Godspeed like "Little Tyrants" and the amazing trio "Orpheum", "Modern Age", and the artistically beautiful "God, Drugs, & Sex". Not one bad song on this record although i havent quite grown to like "Innocent" and the overly repetitive "Other Side", although i do enjoy the synth intro and the verses which i found way too short. Overall i enjoy every song here as they are all amazing in their own way.

Sure its less cerebral and generally more subdued and accessible than past outings although that seems almost like a blessing when listening to how far off course they've strayed from compositional accomplishments lately, focusing upon derailment instead. Here longtime fans may sigh collective relief at this conscious attempt to wrangle elements astray.
