All Music Guide - Gregory Heaney
On their fifth album, Dark is the Way, Light is a Place, Anberlin continue down the path they started down on New Surrender with a sound that's even more layered and dense. Utilizing the talents of Grammy-winning producer Brendan O'Brien, the band's sound has evolved in a way that's manages to be less poppy while sounding decidedly more pop, with the album having a casual slickness to it that makes it sound like something that belongs on the radio rather than an something that's trying to be on the radio.
