The debut album from Anberlin at first feels very generic but the deeper you listen, you'll begin to hear the elegantly crafted lyrics aside from the wonderful vocal work and well tuned guitar riffs. The main theme of this album can best be described by the lead singer himself. In an interview given when Cities was released he said that this album was mostly about man vs. the world, Never Take Friendship Personal was about man vs. man and Cities is about man vs. self. Hearing the band's first album now that they've gone on to have great success really makes me appreciate them more then I did before. If you are interested in hearing just how Anberlin first got started, track down this album. You will not be disappointed.
