Rank your top albums of 2019

It has been a good year for music in my opinion. I thought I would rank my top 10 albums (including Walk the Sky) and include my biggest disappointment. 1. Starset - Divisions - it's solid from top to bottom and sounds amazing through a stereo system or headphones. 2. Wolves at The Gate - Eclipse - ...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 12

This one was hard. I like them all - even Save Me with when will it eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeend!. White Knuckles got my vote - just a killer crunchy song. Island of Fools is my favorite off of The Last Hero. Fortress obviously features the tremendous alternating so...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 11

Very tough choice for me between The End is Here and Clear Horizon. I love the build up in TEIH and the intro is instantly recognizable. The lyrics of Clear Horizon are wonderful and hit me on a very personal level. It encapsulates the theme of Walk the Sky - ESCAPE. In the end it received my vote....

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 10

Forever Falling gets my vote. It has really grown on me. Brian's bass slides and Flip's drumming elevate it into special status. It's the first song on the album that generated a memorable solo and sing along chorus. Those two elements are critical for me as I rank my all time favorite AB songs.

Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown, Sevendust (UK), and the Raven Age (non-UK)

Mark's voice sounds amazing in this video and the others I've seen. I only wish he would play the Burn It Down solo closer to the album version as it is in my top ten favorites of his all time.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 08

I agree with the sentiments so far. Blackbird defines the band more than any other song in their collection. Take the recent Ultimate Guitar poll as a prime example. Some of the luster has worn off over time for me though as I've probably heard the song over 200 times. I would lump DTML, TSOF, and W...

As one who was around back in the original ABB.net days I must say thank you to Jared. Best of luck as you move into the next chapter of life!

Re: Rate the last album, you listened to.

Starset's Divisions album - 10/10. A wonderful mixture of light/poppy/heavy/programming/vocal styles/instrumentation.

Re: Walk The Sky - Favorite Songs Poll

Forever Falling is a runaway hit with Dying Light putting up a good fight! My favorites are: Native Son Indoctrination Pay No Mind Forever Falling Walking on The Sky Clear Horizon is growing on me steadily. I think my two least favorites are The Bitter End and Tear Us Apart. Godspeed seems to resona...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

I've listened to the entire album in a variety of settings 6 times since receiving it yesterday in the mail. I have mixed feelings. Some great intros, riffs, and lyrics, but something is missing. I always go back and re-listen to all AB albums prior to new album releases from them. ODR, Blackbird, a...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

I came home for a quick lunch break and my Earbook and shirt had arrived from Napalm! The Earbook is gorgeous with the photos and lyrics! I listened to the first three songs on my sound system and all I can say is wow! So much more full and clear than the YouTube videos that have been released. Incr...

Thanks Alex. I remember meeting you at one of the first shows many years ago - maybe Toad's Place in New Haven - 2010. How time flies!

Re: Worcester Palladium - 10/03/2019

I got to the venue around 5:30pm. They let us in a little early because it started to rain. Dirty Honey went on promptly at 7pm and Skillet played from about 8-9pm. They definitely bring a high level of energy and continue to be one of my favorite bands though I'm not as crazy about their two recent...

Re: Worcester Palladium - 10/03/2019

Quick review with more to follow. Alter Bridge was fantastic as usual. Myles' voice was back! Sound at the Palladium was excellent. They played three new songs - Wouldn't You Rather, Take The Crown, and Pay No Mind. No songs off of TLH. Fortress, Blackbird, and ODR - COA, ATP, WR, CTL, Blackbird, RT...

Re: How Many Times Have You Seen AB?

Last night was my 12th time (I think) and first since 2014. First show was back in 2007 before Blackbird came out and they played Brand New Start and Wayward One on acoustic in Connecticut. Still remember like it was yesterday. Have seen them in Boston, Worcester, Hampton Beach, Saratoga Springs, Fo...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

It has been a while since I last posted. So far Pay No Mind is my favorite from Walk The Sky. I usually listen to the singles in a variety of places - car, living room, in the dark on head phones. My opinion is that they are still adding too many layers to Myles' voice and things just get so muddy a...

Worcester Palladium - 10/03/2019

Here in line for my 12th AB show. It's been 5 years! Hard to believe. Hoping that Myles' voice is back after being sick.
