Any longtime Anberlin fan is sure to recognize Never Take Friendship Personal as a crown jewel in the alternative rockers’ catalogue. It only makes sense for its tenth anniversary to be commemorated with this concert captured at The Gramercy Theatre. Not only does the collection boast the pleading vocals of charismatic front man Stephen Christian alongside the band’s anthemic delivery, but it also brings a slew of spiritually-probing, modern day classics to life, including “The Feel Good Drag” (which spent 29 weeks on the Billboard Alternative Songs Chart and eventually reached #1). And considering Anberlin officially called it a day in 2014 (after seven albums and a dozen groundbreaking years together), this souvenir of sing-a-longs is likely to fill a sizeable fan void, until of course an inevitable reunion comes to fruition.
