Never Take Friendship Personal

Many bands suffer from the infamous, sophomore slump.” They’ll put out a praise-worthy first album just to fall short on their second offering. Anberlin however did nothing of the sort. After breaking out with their debut “Blueprints for the Blackmarket ” the band is back with their second record on Tooth and Nail. Produced by genius Aaron Sprinkle this album is solid from front to back. I honestly find that their is no song worth skipping over. This has everything I look for in an album: sing-a-long choruses(“Stationery Stationery”) memorable riffs(“Never Take Friendship Personal”) that one ballad(“(The Symphony of) Blase”) and a great singer. Singer Steven Christian has a very strong voice with good range that is showcased throughout the album. Any fan of Tooth and Nail’s bands or just good rock music needs to check this album out. Great release!
