I've been a fan of ABR since 2005 when I saw them on tour with Demon Hunter and Zao. I wasn't a huge fan of their first album "Thrill Seeker," but I knew they had great potential. When their next album, "Messengers" came out I was completely blown away. I hear a lot of people talking about "Constellations" being ABR's best album. I disagree. With Rescue and Restore ABR went back to more of the "in your face" metal from Messengers. To me, that is excited. To me, R&R and fresh and I feel the time and effort they put into the album. I love how they dedicated themselves to being different and unique on this album. Some fans will hate it and others, (like myself) embrace it and love it.

This is a great album. Not only is the music complex and interesting, but the lyrics really set it apart in the metalcore genre. In my opinion, this is one of the best metal albums released in the past few years. A lot of long-time fans are taking the "I like their old-stuff better" road. We get it. You've been listening to them for years. Take it from someone who hasn't really been a super fan over the years... this one's good.

This is an absolute masterpiece of an album. This is what metalheads should have people listen to when non-metalers say "everything is so evil and depressing in metal." These guys weave their spirituality seamlessly into commentaries on the human condition. Calling for peace and helping "others while we're still alive" while reminding fans not to "call me your hero" are themes present not only in this album, but also in our lives. The music is equally powerful in conveying this positivity through melodies that are at once light hearted, yet serious and heavy when they need to be. Rescue and Restore is still very much August Burns Red, and it feels more like Constellations with a few moments throwing back to Messengers.

A few highlights of this album are the lead guitarist's solos. Metal solos these days are all about speed and technicality, and while there is a place for that, guitarist Steve Morse had a great song called "tumenni notes," and sometimes (not always) that's all these speed solos have. Often times a well placed note that creates the right feel, timing, and phrasing is more important than being able to play six-string ascending and descending 16th note sweeps at 250 beats per minute in conjunction to the breakdown in the background.

Also of note is the bassist's screaming (correct me if I'm wrong on which member is doing the backing screams). Since Leveler (their previous album) his screams have become more pronounced and add an additional dimension and depth. Both he and the lead vocalist have some of the clearest and more unique screams in the industry.

Finally, the drummer has always been inventive, and, at times, unconventional. He has to reflect the music the band writes and his perspective, as well the rest of the band's, is unique.

I had high expectations for this album, and they definitely exceeded them. It's such an interesting and carefully put together album that it really does give every fan something that they're looking for. On Leveler, it seemed like they were going in a direction that was less heavy and more experimental, basically trying to just change it up so that they didn't always sound the same. While I certainly respect that, I feel like they didn't accomplish this task until this album. All eleven songs and 49 minutes of listening are worth it. And I mean all of it. But please beware: it has a high chance for addiction, so listen responsibly.

The album opens with the right track in "Provision," starting off very heavy with the chorus and punching you square in the face, leaving you with that characteristic euphoria you get after hearing a new metal song for the first time that you immediately love. And the good thing about this is there are another ten songs after this one. The second song "Treatment," which many of the band members said was their favorite track, has an interesting interlude in the middle of the song that starts out really slow and with different instruments (maybe a violin or viola, I can't exactly tell) but builds up over time and slowly re-adds each instrument from the original song into the fold until lead singer Jake Luhrs begins screaming again, creating a really cool effect.

Then comes the best song on the album, "Spirit Breaker," which includes myriad of vocal techniques, mixing screams and yells and a little singing, including another interlude that has Luhrs just talking as if he's reading a letter. The lows in this song are excellent and definitely makes it a 10/10.

This CD is the most inspiration metal music put out within the last year, hands down. ABR has done it again.

On their fifth studio album, AUGUST BURNS RED continue to develop into one of the best metalcore bands there ever was with RESCUE AND RESTORE, which is also one of the best albums of the year. I'm actually very surprised that AUGUST BURNS RED had branched out much more than they have on previous records. Not to say that this album strays away completely from metalcore, but there are certainly a number of different musical instruments brought forth into their sound, such as stringed instruments, congas, and even a horn section at the end of CREATIVE CAPTIVITY, which is my least favorite track and is actually a terrible song. (I'm not going to knock this album down because of it, but still, the song is horrible. I won't go into detail here, but please listen to the song in full, and you'll see why I don't like it.) They even tune down their guitars to Drop B for the songs PROVISION and FAULT LINE, which is right up there with PARADOX and WHITE WASHED as one of the best AUGUST BURNS RED songs. Also, Dustin (the bassist) has more of a presence on this record, both vocally and musically, and even though Jake Luhrs is beast when it comes to vocals, Dustin's contribution is definitely not a bad thing! Overall, if you want an honest metalcore album that is set to break boundaries more than ever before, pick this album up.

Rating: 4.9 stars/5 stars
