Let me say this right up front: this CD is amazing. If you're an Anberlin fan, you definately won't be disappointed. The melody, rythms, vocals, and instuments all create one of the greatest rock sounds I've heard in a long time. And the lyrics are deep, too, which I love. These songs will take many listens to fully appreciate. In the entire CD, there is only maybe 1 song that I would say is not excellent. Maybe. And the final song on the CD is one that can only be described as epic.
Since it is the special edition, you get a couple extras: 3 bonus songs, which honestly are not that great, and a DVD, which contains some pretty cool footage from the production of the CD.
All in all, this is a must buy. Truthfully, many people would be happy with the regular edition, but if you are a true fan, than this one is solid purchase.
