Biography

Hailing from Orlando, Florida, Anberlin formed from the ashes of various other area projects. Led by the soaring vocals of Stephen Christian, the positive-thinking Anberlin also included Joseph Milligan (guitar), Nathan Young (drums), Joey Bruce (guitar), and Deon Rexroat (bass), and presented an alternative pop/rock sound that, while inflected with the earnestness of emo, was closer to the ...

Anberlin are one of the most surprising bands in music today. In theory, they seem fairly generic; they combine a heavier rock sound with the catchy hooks of pop-punk. But in practice, there's an x-factor in their music that elevates them above all of the other bands in mainstream rock. This x-factor isn't too easily identifiable; for my money the best answer would be the fact that they utilize devices that are seemingly inherently kitschy, but they somehow manage to present them in a way that is anything but cheesy or contrived. Sing-a-long style "la la's," hand claps, group vocals, and a children's choir have all been employed by Anberlin over the past few years, and they haven't made a misstep yet. Led by the ridiculously strong vocals of Stephen Christian, Anberlin will release New Surrender a week or so from now, and they deserve every bit of the praise that this album will hopefully garner.

If there was one problem with Cities, it was that there were one or two songs that didn't live up to the rest of the album. It was an understandable flaw - clearly Anberlin were still trying to gain their footing as a band that had recently gone from a fairly standard pop-punk sound to a more fleshed out sound that actually set them apart from other bands. On a few songs, it was apparent that they were still trying to capture some of the youthfulness of Never Take Friendship Personal while disregarding the fact that they had matured beyond that level. With New Surrender, they've rectified that problem with their strongest songwriting yet, and on a few tracks they even manage to bridge the gap between old Anberlin and new Anberlin effectively, something they couldn't quite manage to do on Cities.

This album has to be one of the most long awaited albums for me all year, and to give it to you simply, this album is absolutely fantastic! I was slightly concerned when they announced that they were leaving 'Tooth and Nail Records' and going 'Universal' but nonetheless, Anberlin have been in this business to know what good music sounds like and with their stunningly produced debut 'New Surrender' they totally shatters any preconceptions from their past and new label! They're back! They're new and improved and have probably produced one of the most catchiest and rockiest album this year! Possibly in they're entire career? In my opinon I think it might just snatch the crown from NTFP!

Compared to previous albums, this is their strongest and probably their most confident album yet and is an (almost) flawless record by my standards with some personal issue's about the re-release of 'The Feel Good Drag'. I'll give them credit where it is due, the music is faultless and definately shows they have improved and developed a maturer sound, however the scream on the bridge should have stayed simply because in the original from NTFP, it provided the raw emotion which fuelled the song. In the re-release you dont see this raw emotion and to be fair makes the song somewhat boring, especially Christian's singing which is practically impossible. Of course this is my opinion and some may prefer the new sound but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. you dont like mine thats fair enough =]

Right getting back on track, the opener 'The Resistance' shows they still got some fight left, crushing guitars, impressive drumwork again by Nate, simply a perfect beginning the album!

Anberlin after a while away since cities Cities was released - which is another brilliant album from them - check it out if you don't believe me! When the Universal deal was announced I was so excited as a fan of Anberlin since Blueprints for the Blackmarket - In my view Anberlin's music has improved & matured with each release & new surrender is no different.
It starts with the rocking the resisitance - which is a brilliant opener to the album & hooks you along for the rest of the ride (only 13 songs - but hey who's complaining which each is as good as the next!)
Musical hightlight favourites for me are the catchy blame me, blame me!; the improved feel good drag (re-recorded from Never Take Friendship Personal [Us Import] album - great track & updated version sounds just as good as original - I must think why universal wanted anberlin to re-record an old song - but I'm not complaining!); Disappear, breathe & burn out bright are great - trust me when i tell u you will be singing along to the na-na-na on the chorus of younglife! soft skeletons is potentially a brilliant song & the album closer sends shivers up my spine when i hear it - miserabile visu - is all about the end of the world - cheery subject matter I know! but the guys from Anberlin pull off a masterstroke with this song - could bea classic for me!
Now you have finished reading my review what are you waiting for? explore this album, buy it, love it - i know i did!
