I’m not going to knock Gusto’s list but I would have not had any of the singers that Gusto put in like Ray Charles and Sam Cooke. I also would have moved Alice in Chains, Green Day, and Garth Brooks out. The bands that I’m going to review are my personal choices and I wouldn’t expect other people to agree.
The songs that people know by Anberlin are Feel Good Drag, Breaking and Impossible. To date the band has sold 700,000 copies of their albums and when compared to most people on the top 25, this is a joke. I however find their music to just rock. I don’t think it’s lyrically amazing but the singing combined with the music has a cool blend that makes me really like this band. Anberlin formed in 2002 and since the beginning of 2007, the band has consisted of lead vocalist Stephen Christian, guitarists Joseph Milligan and Christian McAlhaney, bassist Deon Rexroat, and drummer Nathan Young. They’ve had 5 albums so far and I’ve listened to a large majority of their music and it’s been good on all 5. One of them is an awesome CD where they cover songs like “Like a Rolling Stone”, “The Promise”, and “Enjoy the Silence”. I think this band is overlooked mainly because is more “hardcore” then most pop music. I’m going to post a few songs that I particularly like because most people will probably never have heard them.
