Im not usually into metalcore that much, but this album reminds me why it used to be my Favorite genre back in the days... this album is so awesomely good.
Digging: The Smith Street Band - Throw Me in the River
what the fuck are you, one of ABR's members? accept the fact that someone has a different opinion and shut the fucking fuck up
Regardless of however fun their songs are, after four albums of basically the same shit you can't help but feel like you've heard it all before, be it from them on a previous album or from a scores of other bands that sound exactly like them.
This, main reason I can't stand the band.
Digging: Daughter - The Wild Youth
Album Rating: 2.5
Ok, the band can play their instruments, but they are playing a generic style that has been done to death. Im not saying that playing a more common style is a bad thing, but the band should do something different to keep from blending in with the million other bands playing that style or people will start to find the sound dull. By doing something 'different' i dont necessarily mean 'ground breaking,' Just something that they haven't done before to keep the bands sound interesting.
ABR hasnt even stayed on the same ground as they did with Constellations with this release. They regressed some and lost the little extra kick that they had that made them slightly better than the other generic metalcore bands leaving this sounding pretty boring.
as a band grows, so should their sound

"accept the fact that someone has a different opinion and shut the fucking fuck up" OH THE IRONING
you know there's other reviews on this site that are praising this album so you don't have to keep on with the dick waiving on this one.
Album Rating: 3.5 | Sound Off
Cracks me up that two years ago Constellations was getting tons of love on here, and now everyone seems to be hating on this album.
That being said, album IS pretty mediocre, so the complaints aren't that off.
hmm 3.5 is mediocre now?
Album Rating: 3.0
I still enjoy this one but if they try to pull this shit again (which they will) then I am out
assuming that ironing was intentional and not a clear display of you being an idiot, we'll address the fact that i don't want you to shut up because i disagree with you. i couldn't care less what you rate this album. i want you to stop posting because you're being an insufferable prick

melodic death metal boom jeje
Digging: Job for a Cowboy - Sun Eater
And who says they
can only step forwards or backwards, why can't they stand where they are?
where the hell are you going if you stand still?
do you read what you post?
Digging: Ibex Throne - Ibex Throne
Just food for thought, a band on here that is primarily praised (Amon Amarth) consistently releases albums with the same core aspects/structure but don't catch that much flack for it. ABR releases album with same core aspects, gets shit on. A little hypocrisy here?
Now of course not everyone does what I showed above but I just thought it was kinda weird.
About 2/3 through this album and compared to Constellations it's crap
Digging: Azealia Banks - Broke With Expensive Taste
Album Rating: 3.0
