Anberlin Calling It Quits

Anberlin Releases Final Album Lowborn (Tooth & Nail news Tuesday, July 22, 2014)

 

Anberlin is an odd band for me and they just released their last album a few weeks ago. I was never sure if I liked them. So they will remain that way in my mind I suppose. I like certain songs a lot but not whole albums. My favorite Anberlin release, and can say I like it, isn't a normal album, it's Lost Songs, a compilation of demos, rarities, and covers. At the other end of taste the CD Blueprints for the Black Market was playing today and I thought, this is too repetative, and the boring stuff is also heavy, I might sell it, but then the Ready Fuels track has no equal. Autobahn & Naive Orleans tracks - both good. Different album, the track Feel Good Drag I could loop for a week. Others just drone on and on. For full albums, Anberlin collectability is dim.

 

Since they just announced their future demise, we can pay our respects. I wouldn't mind to hear about why or what you like about Anberlin, if you do.

I first heard Anberlin when I was in the midst of discovering all of those mid 2000s Tooth and Nail alt-rock bands as a teen. I instantly fell in love with Cities (although I don't regularly play any songs from it except for (*Fin) I listened to their subsequent releases, which I didn't think were as good, although at the same time my tastes in music were shifting away from their style. I'm sad to see them go because of the nostalgia factor, but the only thing I really liked about them was Stephen Christian's voice and lyrics - both of which are better showcased in his side project, Anchor & Braille (also produced by Aaron Marsh of Copeland).
