Cities a good improvement over Anberlin's last album. It shows that Anberlin has grown as a band--with tighter lyrics and a newer sound. This has my seal of approval. "Godspeed", getting things to a strong start, will probably be the most well-known song on the tracklist, but quieter songs like the acoustic "Unwinding Cable Car" [one of my favorites] and "Inevitable" are not to be overlooked. "A Whisper and Clamor" is another favorite of mine. Lyrically, some of the songs touch on darker subjects, but this album still seems to have a "there's always a silver lining" attitude to it. This album's artistry is better than ever, though an acquired taste for some. "Fin" showcases a very epic feel. Anberlin is continuing to prove that they are not to be underestimated as a band. I would recommend this album to those who are fans of any of their previous works... and new future fans too!
