Re: Alter Bridge Fall Tour 2017 (South America and Europe)

Shed My Skin could be a good main set closer, with the crowd singing along while the band goes off stage and prepares for the encore. I don't think it's powerful enough for the final set closer though, and The End Is Here is definitely not suited for that as well. It's a great album closer, but I pr...

Re: Alter Bridge Fall Tour 2017 (South America and Europe)

*cough* I only now realise that Myles didn't actually play Guitar in that song. I guess I was too impressed by the whole thing to even see that. XD So he obviously didn't sing this part for his guitar, but for the roadie who did... something... on stage. Still hilarious!

Re: Alter Bridge Fall Tour 2017 (South America and Europe)

Myles had problems hearing himself tonight and therefore was a bit too concentrated while singing, but in between the songs he was even more hilarious than normally. Started some intros with riffs that sounded very Spanish, and during In Loving Memory there was something wrong with his guitar. One o...

Re: Alter Bridge Fall Tour 2017 (South America and Europe)

That's definitely an exciting setlist. Usually I'd be a little bit disappointed by five ODR songs, but it's been a long time since I've seen the song One Day Remains live, and I don't think I've actually ever seen The End Is Here and In Loving Memory, so yeah, I could go without some of the songs th...

Re: Alter Bridge Summer Europe Tour 2017

They just played Lover! <3 and Myles did some AMAZING things with his voice at the end of the song. Totally not disappointed by missing out on TSOF with this beautiful replacement! x)

Re: Alter Bridge Summer Europe Tour 2017

What a perfect position for the live premiere! I really want to see a video of the beginning of the song, just to hear the crowd going nuts. It's great to see that they're still playing new songs from the new album, especially compared to some other bands I listen to (*cough* Sevendust *cough* Shine...

Re: Your Top 5 From The Last Hero

My top 5 haven't changed that much as well since the first weeks after the release. I've replaced The Other Side with Twilight though. Close call, but Twilight has one of the best non-totally-epic bridges they've ever written. In no particular order: Island Of Fools Cradle To The Grave This Side Of ...

Re: Original versions of Come To Life and Buried Alive

"I say heyyyyy I am not your new messiah and I will not take you higher, I'm not ashamed" line is speculated to be a shot at Wind-Up Records and given the overall message of Come to Life which sums it up in one line, "Don't forget, we're here to stay," it could be that this song...

Re: Original versions of Come To Life and Buried Alive

The solo of the early working version of CTL is so fucking amazing. The current one is really good, but the one back then (I don't even know if it was a real composed solo or if Mark just improvised live) has more groove than any other solo they've ever written. Plus, the "I am not your new mes...

Yeah but they were tied with The Other Side & My Champion, respectively. But I went with the 2 ABIII's as per my method above. :beer

It's horrible enough that My Champion got as much love as AHIG in the first place. xD

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Results

I think it's hilarious that the album that's currently being voted the best AB album of all time has only two tracks in here, while ODR has five. I feel like One Day Remains, Burn It Down and Broken Wings have won against much better tracks, but that's obviously a matter of taste. Still, the resulti...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 16

Doesn't really make sense though, as Home and NBTF have different track numbers. So yeah, default win. I think this is what Jim has done in the past as well.

Winner: Home (got my vote, too)

Next post will contain the end results.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 15

I was talking about NWTL. Home and Zero are not album material as far as I'm concerned. I know, I just used Home as an example. There could be a similar reason for NWTL. By the way, Home is awesome and so much better than Breathe Again, which is the weakest ABIII song by so far. Actually forgot it ...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 15

Sometimes, bands don't realize how good some of their songs actually are. Could have different reasons as well. I think they didn't put Home on ABIII because its theme is way too similar to Coeur d'Alene's (at least I believe I've read that somewhere, but I'm not sure), although it's an extremely a...
