Cities or Never Take Friendship Personal. Easily the best 2 albums they've put out though I'm a fan of New Surrender as well.

Well - Cities if you're looking to specifically get "set up for this record" since it's (arguably) their strongest,, but I normally suggest starting with Never Take Friendship Personal.

depends on what you're looking for. Cities is probably their most solid release up to this point but NTFP is a great album in itself but it definitely has a different feel. Maybe try NTFP first, because you'll think it can't get any better, then Cities will blow you away. Also, those albums are both done by the same producer as this album, so they'll probably be more similar than their previous two releases.

Cities!

No disrespect to the band’s back catalog, but Vital blows everything out of the water. Cities has long been the gold standard fans refuse to forget - while that album is undeniable, it shows a band maximizing their young selves; Vital is the result of veteran musicians turning the corner, understanding what works and crafting their masterpiece. This may be a more linear progression from Cities than their previous two records, but both New Surrender and Dark Is The Way were necessary in bringing Anberlin to their current ability - a fair trade, whether you cared for those years or not.

This is exactly what I've been hoping to hear.

I need this in and around my ears pretty much now.

Really hoping this isn't being hyped up too much.

We'll find out next week I guess.

Really pumped for this.

HogarthHughes 10/10/12 08:12 AM

Can't wait for this. I actually enjoyed their last album, so I'm sure I'll love this one.
