Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

Fabled is the best song they've made since at least Fortress, but more likely all the way back to Words. That song has you sit down and takes you through a history of rock music. It feels like a damn lecture. That rocked. The rest of the album was really forgettable, though I liked the vocals in Sta...

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

Holy shit Stay ROCKS. It sounds like I'm watching the beginning of a slasher film from 1995 or something. I said this in our group chat, but it sounds like I'm watching the beginning of Scream. The harmonizing Myles does in the chorus is lovely. FUCKIN lovely. How can you hear that beautiful sound a...

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

Right, I'm in the same boat, Kreuger. None of the singles were that great, to me. Pawns and Kings was alright, but nothing at all stood out. I have yet to listen to the rest of the album yet, but this is what ALWAYS happens. I ALWAYS dislike the singles they release beforehand before listening to th...

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

I have been a very patient lad and have not gone to a sketchy Russian website to look for illegal streams. I've also avoided pretty much every single review. I'm legitimately going into the rest of the album completely blind. The ONLY bit of information I have is that the "Fabled" song is ...

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

They write almost all heavier, metal, what they call "progressive" music now. It's like 80% of the stuff they release, and it increases with each new album. I don't really understand how any fans of that music could criticize a couple of ballads on the album. It's like 2 songs, guys, lol. ...

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

I like ballads. I wish they'd freakin do it more. If your criticism of Nickelback is that they write too many ballads, then you're not trying very hard.

Re: Listening Party Thread - Pawns & Kings

^^ Oh look whose talking. Mr. My team has only one great line, one great defensemen and a great goalie and that's all they got. Technically, I kinda have to root for the Stars somewhat. Their young star winger is half-Filipino that grew up in Arcadia, CA. Close to LA. (his brother is also a Leafs p...

Lmao I love it when he types out his reviews. Hell ya.

He should do that for a living instead of watch his crappy hockey team every year.

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

I'm alright with this song. Nothing that memorable, but I actually strongly dislike Sin after Sin. That left a bad taste in my mouth. This was better. This is probably tied with P&K as my favorite of the 4 singles. Relative to most music, I think they're alright. Relative to Alter Bridge's catal...

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

We've hit a bit of a lull now before the release. I kinda don't like that. If you create hype before a release, then you have to commit to prolong it somehow, not necessarily with songs, but with ads, interviews, reviews, partnerships, etc. If you don't release anything before the album, and just sp...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Ok, so my flights are sorted out. Now for my hotel options. Since my original hotel is not available (which sucks since it was a good hotel for the price I paid), my options are pretty barren for the budget I have. I'm talking low-quality name-brands like Quality Inn, Budget Inn, Best Western, and ...

Re: What grinds your gears?

I still do that with my back sometimes. It happens a lot when I'm setting a plate down on the ground after a set. When I'm transitioning from just lifting a very heavy weight, to nothing at all, the transition unleashes something fierce on my lower back.

I wish I could describe the pain.

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

Still hasn't grown on me, but that's dope that so many of you guys like it. It's all good. It feels like they don't really feel like they have their own "sound" so they continue to change. Like I said yesterday, they think they're making heavier, more progressive, and better quality music....

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

Ya, I thought the bridge was poor, to be frank. Rarely do I say this about an Alter Bridge song, because the bridges are one thing I normally dig from this band, but I hated the bridge a lot.

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

I hear a song like this and it's difficult to believe that it's Alter Bridge. It's just so different. I kinda used to think AB had a unique sound. Like, when I heard the opening of an AB song, I immediately thought "okay, that's definitely an Alter Bridge song" before I even hear Myles sta...

Re: Pawns & Kings (Alter Bridge - VII)

So now we know that there is only one ballad on this record (as the guy said "the ballad on the album" and it is Stay, with mark on vocals. I love Mark's ballad especially Not Afraid to Lose off of MIT. But I miss ABs ballad sang by myles akin to Watch over you, life must go on, wonderful...
