How do you follow up your best record to date? By releasing Cities, that's how! Cities in my humble opinion is the best example of mid 00s rock done to perfection. The lyrics are deep and thought provoking, the instrumentation is heavy and well written, and Christian's vocals are superb as always. I re-listened to this record in preparation and tried to find flaws in it and I could only if I was extremely nic picky. Few rock albums from this time I think how up so well while still very much being a product of it's time. It's a mature sounding album that took what they learned so much from NTFP and improved upon every aspect of it. It's a flawless tracklist with perhaps Mathematics. Seriously fantastic in almost every way and I can't recommend it enough.
