Disagree about Other Side being a snoozer. Song rawks.

The "muddled" part is intentional too along with the rest of it all. 5/5

"Disagree about Other Side being a snoozer. Song rawks."

I meant if it weren't for the pretty little synths and the heavyish guitar riff and stuff it'd be a snoozer



"I think it's mixed really badly"

Where? Everyone talks about how they dislike the production on here but can never point to anything besides Modern Age

I haven't enjoyed listening to Anberlin this much since Cities.



The production works for them sometimes, but I think it's mixed really badly. It crosses the line from 'polished' to 'muddled.'


Imo it's just "raw" enough to work for this band.

The muddled-ness is most noticeable with the synths, and it is just noticeable enough to irritate me, which sucks, because this album is their best in over half a decade

Oh, mkay toxin.

Album is on the good (great) side. Been playing this and The Classic Crime's latest album at my work. It makes me happy.

I work at a store that sells music (among other things). We have a CD player that plays throughout the store hours. It was mostly country and pop before I started working there and I've been trying to add a few things to diversify it so we don't have to listen to the same crap everyday.

Nice. It would be cool to work in a place like that.

Its cool, but there are restrictions that limit my options. Has to be fairly current, pretty much no harsh vox, little to no swearing, etc. Plus, I have to deal with other people that work there trying to butt in on what should and shouldn't be in there. It can be a pain.

I'm hoping that it's like the place from Empire Records

I'd like to die is some track they put out for a really random comp or something, can't remember but I have it if you want a copy. Also, I agree that We Owe This is meh, but Never Take Friendship Personal rules dude!

I had the oddest stage where I dug NTFP a lot, but since then I've been pretty indifferent towards it.

Also the incorrect grammar pisses me off. It shouldn't be a problem but it is... either way I wish they'd replace NTFP with ReadyFuels. Seems like they don't rep Blueprints ever

And cool I'll check I'd Like to Die out, I'm sure I can find it somewhere. Can't guarantee its legality though.



still I can't explain how incredibly jealous I am that you got to see fin live. They probably are playing fin right now in LA and I couldn't go because school. ugh
