Album is pretty good, but it doesn't really have that much lasting value since it sounds a bit generic. It feels like the successor to Messengers.

Leveler was way too inconsistent. Empire, Internal Cannon, and Poor Millionaire are three of their best songs in their entire discography, but the rest of the album fell flat on its face.

I think August Burns Red stays #2 to The Devil Wears Prada in the metal scene with this release.

And to the Kanye comparison.... Yeezus > Rescue & Restore

No way man. ABR slays TDWP imo. Im a big TDWP fan too, but everything ABR does is miles ahead of them. Even For Today is better than TDWP.

I can't believe how down so many people are on leveler... I thought that album was pretty awesome.
Same here man. Surely, its no Constellations, but still very solid record imo.

TDWP can get pretty boring, but For Today-level boring?

Yeeeeeeah, no.

Nope. ABR is more technical, but that's all they have on TDWP. TDWP has better songwriting, they are more creative, and Mike Hranica's lyrics are way better than ABR's ("We are justice fighters, with faces of fire"? lawl)

Not to mention TDWP has progressed way more from their debut than ABR has

lol I guess Ill take your opinion on that. But the lyrics from this album are outstanding, their best yet imo. And I agree, TDWP has def improved a lot. I look forward to their latest album Sept 17th!

I was just going to say that Denning is improving as a writer and then I saw punctuation outside of quotation marks and a few choice sentences and now all my hair has been pulled out congrats you did it again.
Do you ever have anything positive to say?

Me either. I really loved that album. Something in it resonated with me more than their previous stuff although I loved that too. I am not yet sure where I would rank this album but it is quite awesome.

Great review sir and I agree with your sentiments about score. When I review things, I like to say whether it is worth checking out or not.

I'm really enjoying this album; I just need a lot more time to ingest it all. Leveler is still my favorite ABR album so I disagree with the dislike that some people have with it. Rescue & Restore will be a top 2 ABR album for me and will most likely be in my top 10 at the end of the year.
