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.

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!
