Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

By the way, I want to address something: Listening to the RAH version of Lover again, I realized that its arrangement has a lot to do with my dislike for the song... because the RAH version of it does it so much justice, that the concert's value would diminish greatly if that song wasn't on it. So I...

Re: Any Retro AB Sound on Walk The Sky??

I'm not a guitar player, but what do people mean by "clean tones"? Mark has always used distortion, so I don't think his sound has ever been "clean". But I probably just don't understand the term. Compare Mark's opening riff of Blackbird on the album to the one from RAH. Maybe t...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Never seen that music video before until now. Damn, Myles looks much younger fifteen years ago.

"We all do." Well, Mark doesn't... and Myles has a lot of youthfulness in his 2004 appearance, almost like just a kid grown up.

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

Regarding Burn It Down, the lyrics don't resonate with me at all. I haven't touched alcohol or drugs in 31 years of existence. Don't love the chord progression (Lover sounds the same regarding it, and I don't love it either), and the song in general is just too long for me. I don't even like the har...

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

This song actually sort of reminds me of The Uninvited, which is a song that I like but not many others here do. Maybe that's another reason some of you might be "meh" to it. Don't like one, so likely wouldn't like the other. I wish the verses were doubled in length (filling them out for t...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

A single can't be a grower guys, you have to be hooked to the song right away I don't know how accurate Bohemian Rhapsody was in portraying its title track, but according to the film it was a grower as well (at least on the critic airwaves). This is keeping in mind that BR is anything but a generic...

This song may have saved one of my students' lives. It's forever enshrined as a song to live at least as long as she does.

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

There are parts of Lover that I'm okay with, and parts that I'm not. For me, it definitely doesn't start right. That's just me, though. And I love The Uninvited. For me, it's perhaps their most underappreciated song... because nobody seems to like it. Bleed It Dry is also an incredible piece to me a...

Never heard someone say White Knuckles has a lackluster chorus. Pretty underrated song when you think about it.

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

I didn't say AB III doesn't have mixing issues, I said it doesn't have the same mixing issues. Something changed from BB to AB III with mixing though, I agree. Myles doesn't sound like he's at the forefront anymore, there is a lot more reverberation throughout, and instruments don't distinguish them...

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

TLH is a different album. It won't grow on people the same way, at all. Still kudos to some great tracks, though: - The Other Side - Cradle to the Grave (some irks, but overall great) - This Side of Fate - Island of Fools - The Last Hero Honorable mention to The Writing on the Wall and Crows on a Wi...

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

But that's the problem bro. Why should a song take multiple listen to get a thumbs up ? Single or any song should touch you and move you right away ! I have given about 20 listen to it now, it's catching up but very slowly and it's completely unacceptable. Isolation, addicted to pain, they were lik...

If I can add Breathe, Solace, and Cruel Sun onto the album, that just makes it better. Especially Solace.

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

It’s funny, I’ve always thought the general consensus was that ABIII was one of the bands weaker albums, but the people in the Alter Bridge Facebook group recently had a battle of the albums poll and it came down to ABIII vs Blackbird. Blackbird won, obviously, but ABIII convincingly beat Fortress ...

The birds appear on the cover art again. Beautiful! I look forward to this album, but I might try and remain as spoiler-free as possible. We'll see how long I can hold up. You might not notice me perusing the boards often once the first single hits, resistance be damned! First single in two weeks! :...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I have three different answers, and I don't know which to go with!

I'm going to lean toward TT being the clock.
