5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth considering 26 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Without wanting to over-sell it, this is an absolutely magnificent album. On the surface it seems like Anberlin are doing little that hasn't already been done by the likes of Lostprophets and Mad At Gravity (in fact, the singer sounds a lot like J.Lynn Johnston of Mad at Gravity), but they bring in such a vast number of influences that they stand out amongst the crowd.
Over the 11 songs, Anberlin fluently combine immense atmospheric guitar sounds with killer rhythms ("Glass to the Arson", "Change the World"), classic metal riffs ("Readyfuels") and with a constant vein of lush melodies.
Melody is certainly the ace up Anberlin's sleeve - each song has a hook so perfect that it engrains itself in your mind after only a few listens.
The album's stand-out track is closer "Naïve Orleans", which is one of the most brilliantly crafted pop-rock songs that you're ever likely to hear. The only slight dip in quality is with the rather unwise foray into pop-punk territory with "Foreign Language", which is unremarkable but by no means awful.
Also note the rather excellent cover of The Cure's "Love Song", which fits in perfectly with the sound of the album whilst remaining faithful to the original.
It's a shame that many people will overlook this album, or judge it by genre or association, because it really is quite wonderful. It may not be treading new ground, but it's treading the old ground damn well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top rock 26 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you like your guitars hard and some passionate rock, this album is for you. Almost every track is a winner, particular favourites being Readyfuels, Cold War Transmission and Glass to the Arson. Some of the tracks do sound slightly like fillers, particularly the cover at 9, but generally speaking this is a good album and deserves attention. The good far outweighs the rubbish.

This is Anberlin at their best. Buy this instead of each cd and get a great price reduction.

It's worth it!
