Anberlin Retrospective on Amazon Not "New" Anberlin

Posted by - 10:14 AM on 03/13/12
Pretty obvious Anberlin doesn't want much to do with that "retrospective" release coming out.

I kinda like the album art to be honest, but this would be a huge waste of money for me.

I'll say it again though, I'd love a Lost Songs 2 someday

Super excited that BFTBM and NTFP are getting vinyl on Record Store Day, too

Understandable. Greatest Hits albums are generally dumb already in the digital era, but one that excludes their last two albums is especially useless.

I need both for sake of completeness, but yeah NTFP is obviously the better album

I still check eBay pretty regularly for a New Surrender vinyl since I missed out on that one :(

I'd think about getting this...if I didnt already have all those cds.

Where does all the hate for T&N come from? Everything I've heard has been positive other than here...

It's kind of crazy how infrequently New Surrender auctions pop up

"cannot believe how smart our fans are"

oh.

Edit: I love Anberlin and I know that they're nice guys and everything, but that was just quite the odd way to put it.

In general, I have a lot of respect for T & N; a lot of my favorite releases in high school came off that label. Unfortunately, I'm always against labels doing things with artists' music without consulting them and this is one of the worst. They are essentially just repackaging the last greatest hits album. I don't understand this choice. Why would you produce a useless and mediocre product (because of the lack of the two albums) and also burn your bridges with the band as well?

This is one of those really obvious displays of power by a label--they can do anything they want with Anberlin's music and the guys can't do anything about it. I'm just really surprised this power play is coming from T & N.

So, they probably signed a contract allowing this.

Now, they're complaining.

Hm.
