Ugh story of my life with Alter Bridge.

I'm saddened you can barely even hear Mark's vocals on them.

Re: Top 10 AB songs

Blackbird is my favorite song and Alter Bridge is my favorite band... so for it to be the best song for me is not a stretch. I will most certainly say it loudly and proudly any time that it's asked, without a second's hesitation. Many other songs have great underpinnings to stand the best of time an...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

I don't doubt that the CD is better than streaming, but good lawd if my iTunes 256k isn't up to snuff with the best they can offer then I feel I'm really getting shafted.

Let me know if anybody else knows otherwise. I can't access YouTube Music at work to check it out for myself.

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

Anyway, I think my problem with myself regarding this album (and don't take it as me not liking the album, just as my own drawbacks) is that I see the songs for what I think they could/should be and they are shortcomings as a result. For example I think that Take the Crown should drop a couple half-...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

The thing that can't ever get me into ODR vibes is the way the songs are arranged, layered, and mixed. If ODR had the same style, then maybe I would agree. Without it, I can't possibly ever say that myself. Basically, they need whoever was their producer for ODR to have a chance of me saying it sou...

As does Close to Heaven... but what does this have to do with AB, WTS, or anything that anybody else has said recently?

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

I have listened to this album somewhat nonstop since Thursday night (I say "pretty much" because Jimmy Eat World's Surviving came out the exact time, which has taken up at least 30% of the listening share), and while I'm not giving a review of any sort right now, I do want to say one littl...

Re: Walk The Sky - Favorite Songs Poll

Currently, in album order: Wouldn't You Rather Godspeed Indoctrination Forever Falling Tear Us Apart Honestly, a lot of these songs, if good as advertised, are being clouded by Myles harmonizing with himself everywhere and being drowned out by riffs. A couple of songs is fine, a couple of moments is...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I think "You Will Be Remembered" could be a killer song if it's called "You Will Be Dismembered" and played by a different band. LOL I'm not saying people are being harsh about You Will Be Remembered, but I'm wondering what other people absolutely dislike about it. I always thou...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

I like their ballads. I just don't like when they make it a checkbox item on an album, especially when they say "well we want to add some heavier flair to it" at the same time. Take Ghost of Days Gone By's bridge, or All Ends Well's "Gonna hurt like hell" line with the chord prog...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

I'm not sure that I know of Dust, but I wouldn't give epic status to The Great Beyond or Love Can Only Heal. They are absolutely excellent songs and there isn't even a shred of a fraction of a star that is being diminished from them when I state they aren't epics (case in point, even though I like L...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

Well, what defines an epic for you all? Not that is epic, but that is an epic. For me, the song needs to "take me on a journey," contain peaks that heavily contrast its valleys, and it simply needs to be very good. Movies are the same way for me. Transformers: The Last Knight can't be an e...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

I don't disagree at all, but at least that chorus sounds good while doing it. Anything from TLH that does it sounds like they could have done less. Yeah, that's fair. The overdubs have gotten worse with every album from Blackbird onwards. It annoys me more when they ruin otherwise promising songs -...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

Dude. Calm The Fire is a work of art and top 5 Alter Bridge, and Myles sounds like a god on the chorus. I knew it would be an unpopular choice, but that chorus just screams "excess" to me. Must be, what, five Myleses singing together? Possibly with a few Marks chucked in there for good me...

Sorry, somehow my post wound up in the listening party thread. Don't really know how that happened.

Anyway, this is what I said:

Here's a video of Myles and Mark (M&M, perhaps??) watching YouTube covers of their songs, with an interesting little twist at the end.
