Editorial Reviews

Anberlin has been a staple in the Tooth & Nail catalog for over a decade with their release of Blueprints of the Black Market in 2003. Since then, they have toured the world many times over and released what many would call essential albums in the label catalog. Anberlin will be releasing their 7th and final album Lowborn on June 24, 2014. Lowborn is the followup to the band s 2012 release Vital which debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top-200 chart.

Following the release of Lowborn, Anberlin will be hitting the road for the entire Vans Warped Tour, with a final world tour in the fall of 2014. This summer and fall will be fans final chance to see Anberlin in concert, and it will be something special. Lowborn features some of the bands strongest tracks to date, and is sure to draw fans old and new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Anberlin. And Godspeed. July 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I was really confused when I first heard that "lowborn" would be Anberlin's final album. I started listening to Anberlin when "Never Take Friendship Personal" came out in 2005. I was captivated by their melodic and poetic "Cities" in 2007, which is arguably the bands mangum opus. Their recent album, "Vital," was well received by critics and fans. They seemed like they were at the top of their game. So why are they going out now? Sure, it's better to go out on top, but it's hard to imagine them putting out music that is less than exemplary or becoming forgotten by fans. After listening to "lowborn" ten times I realized that the answer to my question lay within the album itself.

On their acoustic driven "Atonement," Christian reflects on his music career, not quite coming to grips with saying goodbye. Christian sings: "I've seen faces I may never see again / I've been places I never could have dreamt / I've touched hands with those who touched me / seen the marks, the skeleton keys / I found peace in a foreign atonement / I lost myself in the tides of a moment." He is saying he found peace in his music career, but that it became his identity to the point where he lost who he was. He loves where he has been as a musician, but in his heart he knows that he needs to move on in order to recover his identity. When I looked this song up on Google I discovered an interview that Christian said "I know there are going to be a lot of questions as to why we decided to break up and I explain it all in the song `Atonement." In my mind, that confirmed my logic. Perhaps it is a little off, but I have a feeling it is pretty close.

"lowborn" is the most somber and experimental album we have heard from Anberlin.

By Will
Format:Audio CD
Anberlin has been easily the best alternative rock band in the USA during the last several years--and remember that Coldplay and U2 are both in the United Kingdom, in case you're thinking "what?!" Now they're up to their seventh album in 10 years and have announced they are calling it quits. It's always sad when a great band does that. Especially when great music seems to be deteriorating.

Anberlin usually never sticks to one sound, but in the case of Lowborn, you may not find this to be the case. I personally found it to be quite similar to Vital in some ways--mainly because of the synthesizers. However, they are taken to the next level in this one.

The main thing about this album that *does* separate it from the others is that it's probably musically their most aggressive album since Never Take Friendship Personal. (As for the lyrics? Well, let's just say that Stephen Christian seems to be a little more ticked off than usual on some tracks.) Songs like "We Are Destroyer" and definitely "Dissenter" rank among their heaviest songs ever. However, they still manage to keep the ethereal feel that they had in Vital or even Dark Is the Way..., which is what makes songs like "Stranger Ways" and "Atonement" such great songs.

Anberlin has the amazing quality of an alternative rock band to get their songs stuck in your head quite easily, and Lowborn is no exception. Songs like "Armageddon," "Stranger Ways," "Atonement," "Losing It All" and "Hearing Voices" should testify to this. To be honest, there's not really any bad songs on this album--even if some Anberlin albums (namely Cities and Vital) have much better tracks overall.

The biggest complaint I have about this album is its length. For an Anberlin album, this is a pretty short record with only 10 tracks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lowborn, But With High Reputation July 26, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Anberlin has been rockin' for a little over a decade, with Lowborn being their seventh and final album-- how do these ten tracks compare to previous records?

"We Are Destroyer" opens up in typical Anberlin fashion: a strong, fist-pumping rock song. "Armageddon", my personal favorite off the album, follows up with a slower pace that has a large atmospheric vibe to it. "Stranger Ways" continues with a more melancholic vulnerability and leads into another rock song, "Velvet Covered Brick". Next comes "Atonement" as a bittersweet ballad looking back at Anberlin's career and where they are now; "Birds of Prey", another slower song, has a sense of weariness akin to "Stranger Ways" earlier. Stephen Christian gets his scream on in "Dissenter" at track seven, screaming the lyrics for the majority of the song. "Losing It All" is a medium-paced track that feels right at home on a last album with lyrics like '...it's not losing it all, if we have each other / in the end it's all, in the end it's all that matters'. "Hearing Voice" feels again like traditional Anberlin rock, which to me has the flair of their album "Cities" in it. "Harbinger", the final song, is another appropriately slow song that ties up the feelings of ending with the chorus '...we'll live forever, forever, forever / I don't want to go now, but I've got to...".

Anberlin did something unique in the album-making process compared to how they did in the past-- rather than going to one producer for the whole album, they went to producers that they felt comfortable with for each track. While I think this is an interesting idea, ultimately I believe it brings down this record. The overall progression of this album feels a bit disjointed; it seems to lull in the middle, rise slightly, and then fade off in terms of energy.
