Leave it to August Burns Red to make their past albums seem amateur in comparison to this haha. Constellations was my favorite album of theirs...was...

Great review.

First off this album is not 100% rating. I like August Burns Red, and if you do then you will like this album. However there really is nothing all that new here. There is a little more experimenting like on Leveler but other than that it's still abr. An 80% would have been just fine. 100% to me means it will be a classic album....this it is not. It's good but not worthy of throwing out that crazy of a score. If you like metalcore check this out. If not then stay away.

You didn't see my first post. The score is irrelevant, I didn't want to attach a score in the first place. All I have to say is that it's "Highly Recommended", which you can see at the bottom.

Thanks for taking the time to read it though, I really appreciate it.

I do like your reviews so I really hope you didn't take this as an insult in any way. I did not know you wrote a separate review but I will go check it out. Keep up the good work cheers!

Oh hey, no worries. The score system and the fact that my main focus is on interviews is why I don't do more reviews. I consider myself a strong writer, but I like Drew, Alex, Jason, etc.'s reviews better. Drew was a big reason why I read the website back in 08.

Have a good one.

Constellations is still my favorite album but ABR continues to create amazing technical albums and will always impress me. Much better than Leveler, great review

I find they should change the rating system up now to something a little different, but yeah those guys are good reviewers. Good to take after them. Cheers man look forward to reading you next one!

No chance man. Leveler was just them shooting for this album and missing. They kept trying to inject slow, melodic parts into the songs on Leveler and they just didn't flow. These songs flow with the melodic and heavy parts together, rather than just stopping altogether and forcing a part of the song that didn't need to be there.

I don't know, just my opinion.
I disagree, I think the slower parts on Leveler fit in the songs well and flowed perfectly, especially on Internal Cannon.

The song literally stops and then they go into that ill advised Mediterranean bridge that ruins the song. I'm all for experimenting with your music, but Internal Cannon is probably my biggest example of the bad songwriting exhibited on Leveler.

The song doesn't stop. There's a pause right before the first slower break, but it continues right after that using a similar chord progression, just cleaner. Agree to disagree I guess.

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.
