Format: Audio CD
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 is seriously the best album by ABR yet! I've been listening to ABR for a few years now, and from having listened to both Constellations (their absolute best by far outside of this album), and the Leveler album, as well as Messengers and Sleddin' Hill, I have to admit that this album tops them all.

While certain songs, like Echoes, do have odes to previous albums inside them from what I can hear, every single song on this album has been mastered to precision and the best sound for any metal album I've heard yet. All the new tracks also are really original and vary from each other nicely, which shows that the band is clearly trying to define their sound, while also showing an intense care for how they write their music. This also means that the songs have a huge sense of depth, as the songs themselves will vary in their composition, adding for a lot of detail. The subtle heartbeat, for example, within Spirit Breaker, and the normal voice segments in both the previous song and Beauty in Tragedy are captivating.

But it's more than just music to me, because I think about the Christian message that the band has behind the album's release, even reflected through the cover and the first preview track, "Fault Line". It's what inspires their awesome drummer, and causes such passionate music. It's not formulaic, or genre-typical--it's honestly different than other bands I've listened to. I have to admit that Fault Line was honestly the best example of the story of how a human being wants to do things their own way ("this is your time now"), then comes to realize there is hope in the end of everything.
