I agree that ABR is one of the best Metalcore bands out there, but I just think Architects and Parkway Drive are a little better. Forevermore and Silent Planet don't really have enough material to be compared with the "big bands" of the genre, but they're up and coming, too. Anyhow, we agree that ABR are pretty damn good, and that's all that really matters.
lots of weird interludes in the new album but nevertheless another solid outing from ABR. good to know there's at least one metalcore band out there that has stuck to their roots and hasn't drastically changed their sound. can't say the same for elitist.
The last 2 albums are pretty good but I fear that they might not have the capacity to write consistently good albums like Constellations and Leveler. I like how both of those albums are like a journey and that they're both "all killer no filler". I found Rescue and Restore pretty forgettable and I fear that Found In Far Away places has only 2 perfect songs - Identity and Ghosts
