Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 13

Wayward One by far. The solo is one of my favorites and the bridge is incredible.

I like The Last Hero, but it’s kind of overrated in my opinion. It’s one of those songs that while it’s an ‘epic,’ it doesn’t even come close to touching their other epics.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 10

Gotta go with Watch Over You here. It’s in my top ten AB songs for a reason. Forever Falling is amazing but I can’t put it above WOY.

Fallout is also an underrated song.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 08

I’m surprised TSoF is getting a handful of votes. I’m a fan of the song, but to me it sounds like one of those songs that tries to be an ‘epic,’ but instead is just a really good song that falls short of that mark. Both ‘epics’ on TLH feel that way to me. They’re in a tier of their own but definitel...

Blackbird, shockingly. They are historically awesome at Track number 8, though. Love all of these.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 06

It’s strange, I don’t get the hate for Make It Right. I didn’t like it a ton when the album came out, but I’ve been listening to it lately and it’s pretty damn good. Nice solo too.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 06

I think it could take track 11. I’d have to think about it vs. The End Is Here, but I’d probably vote Clear Horizon for that one. I already think Native Son should have won track 5. I also just looked at track 9, it seems to be a historically weak track number for AB. I’d honestly vote Pay No Mind o...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 07

Gotta go with Calm the Fire. Top 5 Alter Bridge, it’s just a beautiful work of art. I also love Wonderful Life and Rise Today. RT is especially underrated, I think. I like the simple guitars in the beginning and it actually has one of Marks better solos at the end. They are going against CtF, though...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 06

Man, Broken Wings seems SUPER overrated to me. It’s not even one of my favorites from that album. I know a lot of people love Cradle as well, but I don’t like it as much. Gotta give my vote to Before Tomorrow Comes. I remember back in the day, Universal released previews of like 3 songs and BTC was ...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 05

Coming Home has a really cool and unique riff and an awesome bridge, but the chorus just kills it for me. It’s so choppy and does not flow well at all. I’ve always been surprised by how much love it gets.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 05

I’m actually going with Native Son on this one. It’s really grown on me a lot as I listen to the album. I love Metalingus, but I’ve always thought it’s been just slightly overrated. Again, fantastic song, but it’s not a top 10 or 25 for me. Native Son Metalingus The Uninvited Still Remains Coming Ho...

Re: Walk The Sky Intricacies

I know what you mean by literally imagining ‘Dying Light’ through the song. Marks solo at the end especially just gives me mental images of a light shuttering out of existence.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 04

Myles extends the solo-ish guitar part at the end of the song at a show at one point, that would’ve been cool on the album version. Still a top tier song though.

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

The song is overall very generic, but Wouldn’t You Rathers solo is probably the most satisfying solo on the album. I’m not sure why, but some solos just click in your brain and give you that feeling of satisfaction. I don’t really get that from this album with the exceptions of Wouldn’t You Rather a...

The part in Lover where the music gets quiet and Myles has that vocal shiver going on is intense.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 04

I like Godspeed, but it’s the perfect example of a song that should 100% be longer. The solo feels almost pointless even though it sounds great because it’s so short, and the song ends so abruptly that it’s almost annoying. It’s like, wait, it ends here? That’s dumb. There’s no ten seconds of music ...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 04

I seem to be one of the weird ones who loves Buried Alive. The opening and closing solos makes it unique and it has one of my favorite bridges of all time. Shame it had to go against Lover. And I used to dislike My Champion because the lyrics are pure cheese, but there is some really nice guitar wor...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 04

Had to go Lover. It’s one of those songs that can still give me goosebumps listening to it today. It’s one of Myles most intense vocal performances and the guitar work is amazing even without a solo.

Choosing between Buried Alive and Lover is too hard. Two of my all time favorites.

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

ODR is their clearest, cleanest album sound wise by a mile.

As far as the Elvis albums, I’d to agree that AB III is probably the best.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 03

Ghosts is ok but it’s just middle of the pack for me, and the solo on Bleed It Dry is incredible but the rest of the song is just too choppy for my taste. Brand New Start is just so elegant and beautiful from start to finish. I’m super sad that it’s going to get beat.
