Granted, Constellations isn't necessarily as brutal and aggressive as Messengers was, they still matured musically. You can't really say ABR half-assed it; they in-fact made a record that really bended the lines of the genre of metalcore.
I love this album, can you tell by my avatar? :D
Haha, yeah you're sort of right. I loved it too, but I feel like they could have done a bit better. Know what I'm saying?
