Album Review

Sticky sweet pop melodies, explosive pop-punk chord progressions, "sensitive guy" lyrics. Yep, this should all sound pretty darn familiar if you're a rock fan circa the early 21st century, as there's been an endless stream of bands (for years by this point) that meet all the prerequisites of the aforementioned checklist. And on their 2007 release, Cities, there are certain moments that you can definitely add Anberlin to this list. Thankfully, they don't specialize in that annoying frat-boy-esque shtick that some pop-punk bands do; instead, Anberlin can be quite an ambitious bunch that go the emo route. While songs such as the album opening "Godspeed" sounds like your average pop-punk band of the moment, tracks such as the acoustic guitar-driven "The Unwinding Cable Car" is emo at its most naked (and includes some pretty darn impressive vocal harmonies). But for the most part, the tunes sound like a hopeful trying to win over the judges in the latest episode of Rockstar, especially on such tracks as "Adelaide" and "Hello Alone." Nothing too groundbreaking here, but nothing cringe-worthy, either.

Customer Reviews

Patron saint of lost causes

I'm not gonna bother to review every song individually everyone is great except for *fin. The entire album is building up to this and the then the song erupts into a passionate heartfelt song that deserves to be above a rating it transcends music as a medium it is a masterpiece it doesn't matter your race, sex, or religion this song will speak to you. Flawless album.

Great Album, however...

This album is fantastic, but is there a reason that two songs on the album are switched? (Alexthymia and Reclusion.)

Uh.....What happened to all the reviews that were on here? Which included mine.

Really, what happened to them? Why were all those reviews removed?
Anywho, A Whisper and a Clamor is awesome!! I never listened to the other songs so I only reconmend A Whisper and a Clamor. The music for the song is great......can there be a performace track for it? Or a way to get the music by itself. I mean it's cool! Get A Whisper and a Clamor!!


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...
