Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

I still maintain what I said about Blackbird being possibly one of the greatest songs ever written by any band, ever. That one poll where they named the solo the greatest of all time? No joke. Fortress is a great song too, and they've written some other amazing stuff, and like Muffin just said, I do...

Re: Performance Videos

I know our acoustic videos have sort of migrated to that "acoustic covers repertoire" thread, but I was just digging through this dusty old forum and saw that nothing had been posted here on this thread in exactly a year (well, it's past midnight here now so over a year), which is a shame....

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

Fortress is a better song across the board. Arrest this man. :rolleyes Blackbird is so over rated. I loved it when it came out but theyve done better, many times. Who hurt you? I really want to hold you right now and give you a Robin Williams-esque "it's not your fault." Blackbird is far ...

Re: What happened to the riffs?

I do think the guys are trying hard to write more complicated, intricate music these days, challenging themselves as songwriters, and that may translate to less chunky/memorable riffs. That has its ups and downs, but they've gotta be left to do what feels right to them.

Re: I'm every person you need to be!

There is no way to disable private messages (pm) but I think you mean the post limit that hides posts from new people. We do this to prevent spammers from posting garbage and viruses to the boards by constantly making new accounts and new threads with bad links in them. So post like you normally wo...

Re: Your Acoustic Covers Repertoire

Not to double-post, but come on, we're on a forum in 2020, rules are meaningless. :) Here's a throwback to 2017 that I just uploaded to my channel, a little cover of some Pop Evil. Enjoy! (And this thread was originally to just list what songs you do, but this is way funner, let's populate it with v...

Re: Walk The Sky 2.0

I can't say I've ever felt underwhelmed by WTS, or TLH for that matter, as full albums. Maybe the odd song here or there, or the overall "loudness wars" sounds of them, but otherwise... like, the other night, I was messing with my record player and running a few vinyl albums while working ...

Re: Walk The Sky 2.0

Not sure if this has been posted. Myles doing Native Son acoustically: https://youtu.be/VxxKrRh2qD0 God, he sounds good here. I was so excited for Myles' solo album, and it wasn't disappointing, but it was different - I wasn't expecting something that sounded country-ish, I was looking for an album...

Re: Your Acoustic Covers Repertoire

Wanted to share this one from a couple years ago. Aside from the train honking in the background, I got a pretty good sound on this video as I was opening up a Make-a-Wish benefit show with some friends of mine who do a full-band cover band, and they hooked me up in their sound system so I got a muc...

Re: Walk The Sky 2.0

And I've always said this - it's the band's job to do what they want to do, as artists, put out what they want to put out, what makes them happy and fulfilled as artists. That would normally be true, but definitely not for AB. I've seen so many interviews with them saying 'we're making a couple of ...

Re: Walk The Sky 2.0

I totally get where you guys are coming from though - you love the old sound, you think the band was better then, and you want them to return to that sound and be the best they can be. And that's fine - but what "sounds good" and which songs are "good" and which ones "suck&q...

Re: Walk The Sky 2.0

I know I've never really been as involved with a fanbase for a band as I have for Alter Bridge, but damn... I've never seen so many fans of a band who continuously, constantly, with every release, find every negative thing they can to complain about. I mean, everyone is entitled to their opinion, an...

Less important than Trump riling up his cult members, but something else that still grinds my gears -- as someone who's been helping to create and run fan sites / groups / etc for Alter Bridge since the day the band was announced, every time there's a new release, whether it be a full album or in to...

Re: It's the Decline and Fall of the American Empire

Trump is a disgrace to the USA. He needs to go. When he first became elected, I didn’t know much about him. But honestly at this point, I don’t see how anyone can still support him. It’s not a partisan thing. Trump is just a joke. Biden is definitely the better choice. Just curious, cheesedip1, do ...
