Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

WRONG Andy, I'm going to compliment those marvellous slippers, which I can now view in remarkable clarity. Cheers Blackbirddd! So top line begins "AIC", which as initials go are pretty interesting... Line 3 is "It Came From the Past"? Which isn't helpful. I realise this is all po...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Well, people that questioned the lack of board pics during the recording period may be a bit upset by this tweet. They were actually holding out on us on those pics. https://twitter.com/alterbridge/status/1151253989343649792 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D_oTY2NU4AEYPhg.jpg Okay, time to check what I...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Kind of a weird theory here, but they re-realeased Open Your Eyes video today on their official YouTube channel. If they posted that today and release Pay No Mind Friday, do you think that could be a re-recorded old song?...like say... On My Way Now? Maybe changing lyrics or so? That's one hell of ...

Re: Don't F*** With Kev. He will disappear you.

Damn. That last spam thread where I, on behalf of the TABN users, bequeathed mod privileges to anguyen is gone. I publicly asked if there were any objections to making him a mod and I can quite literally and honestly say that I never saw any objections. Therefore I can only assume everyone was fine...

Doubly so since there's a discussion about the best and worst Alterbridge albums going on the Wouldn't You Rather thread.

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

Can confirm that you can love The Last Hero and still be a member here - I am yet to be banned! Stacks up well against their previous work and I've got a tin ear to production issues so I've always been a fan. Random thought about lead singles though and as Rise Today came up earlier - does anyone r...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

Lover's one of the four untouchables on Fortress for me. And Coming Home is top 5 on Blackbird!

This just goes to show that I'm glad no-one here (except Andy) is in charge of tracklists :D

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 W...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

You have to cut one song off every album. Go! ODR - Watch Your Words. It's a consistently strong album but this is the weakest link. Blackbird - Break Me Down. Before Tomorrow Comes runs it close, but yeah, it's Break Me. Down. ABIII - Breathe Again. Get out. Fortress - Cry a River. It's a shame Out...

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

It was asked whether a single can be a grower earlier on, and even though I connected with the verses immediately, it's taken me a bit longer with the chorus. But I'm there! I think it's got good potential to be a sing-along anthem live.

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

Idk taking into consideration the length of the track, I'm still thinking it's instrumental with vocal melodies. As in, I doubt there are lyrics, but I bet Myles hums or sings "ahhh's" along to the instrumentation. Perhaps we might hear a "Myles choir" of harmonies? That still w...

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

The one roadblock to One Life being instrumental is the "vocal melody" part in the announcement... but who knows, certainly something different about it given the length (still think it's weird they wouldn't have advertised having done their first properly released instrumental, so I remai...

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

Where do we reckon this'll slot into the setlist? In place of The Writing on the Wall early on?

A full third of their setlist is gonna be lead singles at this point.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

If I were to do some pointless ranking... I'd say this was a mid-level song on The Last Hero, ABIII and Blackbird, and a lower-level one on Fortress. Can't even put it on ODR because it's just a different band. By comparison I'd say Show Me a Leader was bottom half on TLH, Addicted to Pain was mid-l...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I wonder how much they think about having to play it live every night when deciding which to pick for the single. Like, Island of Fools is infinitely better than Show Me a Leader, yet one's been played 100 more times than the other. Also finally looking at the track lengths, it looks very ABIIIish o...
