    The Band's Final Album

    I really like Anberlin, so it's hard to say this. Lowborn is probably one of their worst albums I've got. The music is good so it's been in my CD tray since I bought it, but there are only a few songs on the CD that I can actually understand what they're saying. I run a soundboard for a weekly program at my church and I can say that if I were mixing this thing it would have been done WAY differently. The guitars, bass, and drums are great, and the synth is pretty decent too, but the vocals drown in everything else. They need to stand out a bit more. I give it three stars because it's still fun to LISTEN to, and because it's their last album. I will miss Anberlin.

    Not their best -- but a fitting end to Anberlin!

    Lowborn -- Anberlin's newest and final album is both sad and exciting at the same time. As a listener of their music since Never Take Friendship Personal, this album pulls everything together in a great way. I'd say the album would land in the middle of their discography as far as quality and originality is concerned. In my opinion, it is up there with their best material including Cities, Dark is the Way Light is a Place, Vital and the aforementioned Never Take Friendship Personal. New fans would be better suited to listen to their older material first, while old fans will find Lowborn an album of saying goodbye while having a good time.

    Anberlin has been a band that I have liked for quite a while. This is their final cd after they announced that they were quitting as a band this year. I was excited, but hesitant after their previous release. This cd falters where the previous one did as well. When the songs are good, they are really good, musically and lyrically. When they aren't that great though it can get boring. Anberlin seems to like slow songs too much now and they don't pull them off that well. I feel like some of those songs mess with the pacing of this cd and that is what kept me from giving it a higher star rating.

    After the live album that came with a few extra songs to their last album, I was concerned Anberlin would start to get a little gimmicky. The last album was good, but I seldom like live albums unless they are VERY well recorded and mixed. That live album, however, made me wonder if the band had gone a bit too pop. None of it. They still had an edgy feel they returned to in Lowborn. It didn't rate a perfect as songs like 'Dissenter' always feel a little hurried to me. However, there was nothing really bad on the album and they continue to try new things, which keeps me interested.

    A Valiant Last Ride

    Spoiler Alert: If you're expecting Cities Pt. 2, you will be disappointed. The musical trajectory that Anberlin found themselves on with Vital is continued on this final outing, but it remains unique among their impressive catalogue. There are enough moments on the album that harken back to their decade-spanning career to make this a fitting farewell but also a plethora of new ground that proves it another work of art by artists trying to push themselves one last time. New and old fans will a enjoy spinning this one. Check it out.

    They say all great things must come to an end. Lowborn is Anberlin's final release (although I hope this is secretly just a hiatus and they will reconvene sometime in the future!) and the songs on this album show the band's versatility. Personally, I think the standout track on Lowborn is "Birds of Prey" - it just strikes me as pretty different from anything they've done before. The entire album is fantastic and holds the same thrilling energy as all their records. Go ahead and buy this album - treat your ears!

    Disappointed for last Anberlin album

    I was thoroughly let down by one of my favorite bands. The were pumping social media so heavy that it was going to be a stellar album and then i was so excited when i got it, then i listened to it and felt like it was a total dud. Basically it's just very much all the same song. It would have been super awesome to see the band break up the album into segments of "history of Anberlin" and have songs that reflected each style. Surprisingly not my favorite album, hopefully you will like it though.

    As an owner of every Anberlin cd, I was saddened to hear of their farewell album. My expectations for anything Anberlin is high. I heard from other people that it's not up to par to their other slbums, but not everything can be gold. After owning the album for a month or so, it's not their best album. However Anberlin is such a great band that it's definitely worth a listen. I'd rate it 4 out of 5 for their albums but more like 4.5 out of 5 if you don't compare it to their other music.
