The Top Ten

The Feel Good Drag
I love this song! The acoustic version is also very good and Stephen's voice is just amazing. You would never know that he was a singer unless you heard him.
An amazing song that is extremely catchy! This and Alexithymia are my two favourites. They have the perfect combination of smooth riffs, catchy chorus' and lyrics that actually make sense unlike some other bands
This is the best song they had! This is one of my best songs. Awesome beats and superb guitar play vote it up
It was a dark night and I was totally pissed then I heard this song and you won't believe I listened this and only this song for next 10 days

Simply must be heard to be understood. The lyrics read like a confessional; nothing can match the feeling of abject wonder felt at the conclusion of the song. This song is the perfect ending to anything.
My absolute favorite Anberlin song, although the unwinding cable car is a close second. It's absolutely amazing how deep this song is. The last three minutes are the best.


Amazing Song! IT's worth all ten minutes haha! I think that it definitely tops most of their other songs.

4The Unwinding Cable Car
this song haunts me... this has a ring of truth and half-revealed truths that makes me think of the inevitables... I haven't been able to get this off my head even though I listen to it 24/7
The moment I heard this I fell in love with this band! Amazingly awesome!
Wonderful angst and hopefulness

This song is amazingly sweet. "I wanna break every clock" as in he wants to strop time to be with her
I really enjoy listening to this song. I am shocked it was not as big a hit as it was. Still my favorite along with feel good drag. =)
A beautiful song with more toned down vocals and guitars
"i wanna be your last first kiss, that you'll ever have"

8A Whisper and a Clamor
Crunch, churning guitars highlight a driving verse structure leading to a triumphantly catchy chorus. The bridge, in a word: unparalleled.

Beautiful song; the ideas presented in this song are quite abstract, and can be interpreted in many ways, as I've seen on forums about it, though the most prominent one I've seen is about someone who can almost unknowingly "dismantle" and "repair" another, or have a powerful influence on their emotions and worldview.
How is this not even on the list? At least top 5, really powerful song :) Acoustic is great too!


It's just an amazing song. Anberlin has always been great with lyrics, and this one shows off their talent.

This song is amazing, although I feel bad for all the girls named Adelaide. The song has good sound and beat to it. Lyrics have strong meaning. The song altogether was just one of there great songs. Love it all together!

The Contenders

WHat number 12? No it must be at least in the top 10 no the top 5! This song should be number 2 its one of their best with the feel good drag! Literally my favorite
Haven't heard this song, ha? I bet as soon as anberlin's fan see this, this song would go up and up to a higher position! I'm aware that no one have put up impossible...
Number 1 by its music.. Number 2 by its lyric after Feel Good Drug..

This song is musically a MASTERPIECE. Its so beautiful that the music will stick into your mind for days.. One of the best of Vital (along with Modern Age)
A classy and dramatic piano with epic guitar riffs behind it. Honestly that's all Anberlin needs.

13Unstable Listen to sample

This song is made out of pure awesomeness, from an old bottle of awesomeness which was hid away around the time when god created earth. Counting when they made this song, it has only been opened twice. The other time was by Chuck Norris.
Superb song miind blowing lyrics

Beautiful but sad. A song about long lost lovers. This song is both inspiring and captivating, and it leads you deep into your own past. It is just as good musically as it is lyrically.

20We Owe This to Ourselves
Awesome song. Its got getter drums in it than most of Anberlins music I think which is probably why I like it, because I am a drummer. Should be second to Godspeed in my opinion.
This was the first song I heard from them, great song. Should be higher up.

23True Faith
While it's only a cover of a New Order song of the same name, this song blew me away when I first heard it. It became my favorite song so fast! This song is amazing beyond belief. It just sounds so... good! It gives you this feeling of undeniable greatness. With this song playing, nothing can go wrong. That's what I have to say about this song. All I ask is that you give it a try. Do it for a fellow Anberlin fan.
their new hit, nice and simple, it evolves on those who feel faithless and hopeless, listen and judge

24Dance, Dance, Christa Paffgen
The most underrated Anberlin song, in my honest opinion. It's the last song on a CD, so that's understandably so, but it has an amazing and addicting beat and a tremendous sound.
My all time favourite Anberlin song. It's so sad that it is underrated.
I love this song!
