Re: What happened to the riffs?

The bad production is 100% not helping this issue, either. Walk the Sky isn't as egregiously bad in terms of riff creativity as TLH, but the riffs aren't up to par with the rest of their catalogue, in my opinion. I don't hate Walk the Sky, but I won't pretend that it exists in a vacuum, either. Thei...

What happened to the riffs?

This may be hard to explain, but I'm going to try my best. To me, as a purveyor of fine riffs, each AB album until TLH has had tremendous riffs. Each of them had their identity, so to speak, and then TLH came out, featuring a swath of beehives and muddy, unintelligible riffs that kind of blend toget...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

Does it bother anyone else that there are people who can't hear the difference between ODR's production and something like TLH? There are plenty of users here who just say they sound the same and it blows my mind. Go put on Broken Wings and listen to how clear everything is. Like how the **** can pe...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

The track that’s growing on me the most is definitely Clear Horizon. The bridge is absolutely beautiful. Clear Horizon was my favorite upon first listen of the album. Haven't seen anyone bring it up yet, but the lyrics are extremely good in that one. I really don't like super repetitive lyrics (loo...

Re: Walk the Sky - Song Meanings

I will say that Myles, as Mark feared, ruined Take the Crown for me. I cannot help but think of ruthless tee-ball players whenever I hear it. Such brutal verses and lyrics, and it's about little children playing tee-ball.

Re: Walk the Sky - Song Meanings

It is about someone who's addicted to drugs and dies, IIRC. Mark outright stated as much in interviews.

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

Haven't noticed anyone else really mention it, but the lyric work on WtS is a really good improvement. One Life sounds (both vocally and lyrically) like a Mayfield Four song and I was really impressed by it.

Re: Alter Bridge Walk the Sky Tour 2019

Just saw AB in Dallas, and it was amazing. Left before Skillet (no evangelizing at a concert for me, thanks) and then had to deal with a massive fucking tornado immediately after. Destroyed a good bit of North Dallas.

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

TLH is a rock album this is a pop album . I prefer rock and TLH rocks. Like i have said many times nothing even comes close to TSOF or Cradle on this album. Im sure many Beeber fans might like this album though so if AB were trying to lure teen girls to their music this is the album to do it ...thi...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

I'm glad they've figured out how to keep the choruses as heavy as the verses. Take the Crown suffers from that issue and it bothers me. Verses are so heavy and then the chorus kicks in all happy and shit. Just a weird tonal inconsistency that bothers me. Indoctrination is like that too, which is wh...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

Many listens in now. I agree with assessments that say this is the most complete front to back effort. This one and Fortress are the most complete to me. I only skip two songs from each of them (Peace is Broken, Cry a River, Wouldn't You Rather and In the Deep) whereas I skip a few on the other alb...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

Only song i sometimes skip on TLH is My Champion sometimes You Will Be Remembered, im already skipping WYR, ITD and possibly Indoctrination find it overrated already This is where we differ then. I skip the majority of TLH as I really don't like that album. Easily their worst album for me, except f...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

Hmm. I feel like I may end up where AB23 is at, as I really enjoy all the progressive/epic elements that the band has had on TLH and Fortress, so if those elements are gone and the songs feel rushed, then I probably won't enjoy it. I still haven't heard the rest of the album, but I haven't been sup...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

For me Wouldn’t you rather is not worst than some other similar type songs on other their other album. And Pay no Mind is one of my favorite “banger” song of theirs. I would rank it as high as Island of fools. Hard disagree on WYR, but I do absolutely love Pay No Mind. I don't know why I included i...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Worst part is when the bridge started i was thinking ok this is cool and then its over.....similar to Take The Crown. Myles solo if you can call it that is like the In The Deep one a 10 second noodle. Im only hard on these guys coz they're talented af but im not hearing it on this album. As for Mar...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

So, I love the solo at the end, but I have to agree with LosingPatience. It does feel super safe. In no way does this compare to previous epics, and ffs, where are the bridges on this album? Also, Myles' solo was like 6 bends and that was it. It really does feel like they just played everything real...
