We Recommend - Anberlin, 'Cities'

I can’t think of too many others that are so personal to me as Cities.  I had heard of Anberlin before it came out, but I didn't know much about them.  However, something urged me to take a chance and pick up the record anyway.  As one of my all-time favorite albums, there’s always a track that I can relate to, no matter my circumstances when listening to it.  Loving the record so much, I went to see Anberlin live that spring, my first show in years.  The record and the show both changed my appreciation and outlook on music altogether.  While I can readily admit that it’s not exactly a worshipful record, God’s presence in it is very evident, and it looks at life with a very realistic lens.  It’s a solid alternative rock record with a song for every situation. - Roger Gelwicks
