...difference of forever, and I'm lost there
A few years ago, I was playing Midtown Madness 3 on my Xbox when a song called Readyfuels came on. The artist name, Anberlin, caught my eye. I had tickets to see a Relient K concert about a week from then and one of the bands playing with them was Anberlin, whom I had never heard before until that point. I liked the song, found the CD and was instantly hooked. I played it almost constantly in the few days leading up to that concert, and eventually left that concert raving about Anberlin, not Relient K. I was hooked from the start on what remains one of my favorite bands to date.
This is an especially strong debut album. There are many songs just begging for you to sing along with them... they'll be stuck in your head for years to come. Two Anberlin albums later, I still find myself humming along to these songs. What truly captured my attention were the somber, contemplative gems throughout the CD... a tantalizing hint at some of the epic-feeling tracks on future albums.
My Highlights: Glass to the Arson, Naive Orleans, Cadence
The bottle holds no answers
His lips can only sway
Who needs them anyway?
Desire is close at hands
Her lips can only sway
There's more to life than this
Don't give yourself away
