August Burns Red ranked

Not a bad album by this band. Don’t expect this list to be professional in any way, it’s just me rattling off my thoughts.
1August Burns Red
Messengers


The pinnacle of the band’s work imo, perfect in every way. A flawless mix of melody and breakdowns that never gets old. Best tracks: back burner, black sheep, composure, eleventh hour
2August Burns Red
Constellations


This one’s probably the band’s most popular album, and almost a tie for my #1. Not as heavy as messengers, but overall still similar in songwriting. Although I like messengers more overall, gotta say the production on this one’s way better. Best tracks: indonesia, crusaders, white washed
3August Burns Red
Rescue & Restore


Definitely the band’s most emotional album. They went for a more heartfelt vibe on a lot of the songs here that they never really returned to on later releases. I really love it. Of course, there are also regular abr songs in here too. Best tracks: beauty in tragedy, spirit breaker, creative captivity
4August Burns Red
Found in Far Away Places


The album with the weird interludes. A ton of the songs on here have these really interesting interlude sections with unusual instrumentation, such as the folk-y section in the middle of separating the seas. This album also furthered the already high melodic-ness of previous albums. Best tracks: identity, separating the seas, vanguard
5August Burns Red
Leveler


The album that began the sound they currently have, really upping the technical and melodic elements. What especially catches my ear is the song divisions, where the vocals are almost all high screams as opposed to jake’s normal mid-range scream. Best tracks: divisions, carpe diem, salt and light
6August Burns Red
Guardians


Although it strays slightly from the sound they were building up for a bit of a more generic sound, I still enjoy it. Some songs miss the mark for me but I overall liked it. Best tracks: three fountains, bloodletter, paramount
7August Burns Red
Phantom Anthem


Although it’s got some filler it’s mostly great. Probably the most melodic album they’ve done. Best tracks: the frost, float, king of sorrow
8August Burns Red
Thrill Seeker


Not a bad album by any means, it has some good tracks, but about half of it is filler. It just doesn’t hold up in comparison to the others. Best tracks: barbarian, speech impediment, eve of the end
