Album Review

A new lineup member, a new producer, and a step up to a major label added up to Anberlin's best sense of direction yet, and therefore their strongest output in their brief but prolific career. The band collaborated for three months in the studio to craft their Universal Republic debut with producer Neal Avron, who has helmed projects for Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard, and New Found Glory. Being their fifth album in scarcely six years, spending so much time in the studio had its share of risks involved, particularly with new guitarist Christian McAlhaney, whose addition made three songwriters in the bunch, generally a recipe for "creative differences." It's pleasing, therefore, to see how well Anberlin define themselves on this record. Their sound on New Surrender isn't as much a diversion as it is a realization of their potential to finally seize the full emo spirit in all its glory, as if their high/low, intense-yet-laissez-faire approach to modern rock was simply warming up to this point, which is saying a lot given the quality of songs and the massive following they have carved out over the years. It's not unlike Mae's progression from the critically acclaimed The Everglow to Singularity, where it could be argued that diversity took a back seat to pinpointing their own sound. It worked for Mae, and it works here for Anberlin.

good but...

i absolutely love every song on here. if you dont have this album yet, get it! but one note... i like most anberlin fans bought this when it first came out (it wasnt the special edition, only had tracks one through twelve) and now this comes out and the only way we can legally own "heavier things remain" is by getting the entire cd again. basically an underhanded move that takes advantage of those of us that are long time anberlin fans. and then music companies ask why people pirate music...

Deluxe Edition's sick!

Anberlin has always been my favorite band for about as long as I can remember. This record is just refined and has some favorites that everyone will love like the songs The Resistance, Break, Feel Good Drag, Disappear, Mother, and True Faith. It also has a thirty minute doccumentery on the bands touring around around Austrailia and the Feel Good Drag music video! The best Anberlin record yet! The word is out that in early 2010 they will begin writing their fith record!

Nice

This is a pretty good album. I liked the original, so the deluxe edition only enhances the listener's experience. There's a decent variety of styles, so you should be entertained no matter what mood you are in.

Biography

Formed: 2002 in Winter Haven, FL

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from Orlando, Florida, Anberlin formed from the ashes of various other area projects. Led by the soaring vocals of Stephen Christian, the positive-thinking Anberlin also included Joseph Milligan (guitar), Nathan Young (drums), Joey Bruce (guitar), and Deon Rexroat (bass), and presented an alternative pop/rock sound that, while inflected with the earnestness of emo, was closer to the mature stylings of Third Eye Blind. A five-song demo garnered Anberlin the attention of Seattle-based indie...
