Re: ALTER BRIDGE - Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities

I already owned Breathe as it was included in the Last Hero Best Buy exclusive. I spent the $16 exclusively for the other rarities (Solace, Cruel Sun & The Damage Done). Glad I did. Solace is my fave of the bunch... love the chorus, bridge and transition to the mellow acoustic piece.

Re: Breathe Appreciation Thread

Look if some of you folks (not in the U.S.) really want the Best Buy exclusive version, there is a Best Buy 10 minutes from my house. I'd be more than happy to send a few copies out. Provided of course you send me payment for the CD plus shipping to your location.

Re: The Last Hero - AB Nation Discussion

Getting critiqued for your music comes with the territory of being a rock band. Although it's not my favorite album, I really loved some of the songs. It sure as hell won't stop me from attending their concerts. It sure won't keep me from anticipating and purchasing their sixth album. This band just...

Amen! Glad I'm not alone.

Cradle To the Grave is such a great song - I sure hope they play this one live!!!

Re: The Last Hero - AB Nation Discussion

Ok so I've now listened to each song five to six times. So much so that the music was in my head all night while I slept lol. A few of the songs have really grown on me like Island of Fools and The Last Hero. Others still don't do much for me. My criteria consist of a simple 2-part score (lyric &...

Re: The Last Hero - AB Nation Discussion

I liked the Last Hero better than This Side of Fate but neither song really did anything for me. I'd easily rank this album last behind the previous four. I really like a handful of songs, but the rest are either average or do nothing for me at all. In my opinion I think some of the melodies are jus...

Re: "The Last Hero" User Discussion

In my opinion, this album is very diverse, but definitely a departure from early Alter Bridge. Not including the four pre-releases, my favorite songs were (after only one listen): 1) Cradle to the Grave 2) You Will be Remembered 3) Crows on a Wire I really enjoyed the melodies in these three songs a...

Re: "Show Me a Leader" discussion

Me likey!!!!

It does have a Slashesque feel in parts of the song, but the chorus is absolutely killer. I can't wait to hear this thing live

I listened to six or seven snippets on my way home from a trip... then my phone died. By the time I get back to this forum the damn links are all gone and expired. Somebody re-post the snippets please! :lol

Re: Alter Bridge Summer Tour '16

Yeah I just watched both vids and I had to listen a couple times. I thought he was singing in a different language at one point... really weird. I wonder if enunciating the As in those words is hurting his throat somehow. Really strange

Re: Alter Bridge Listening party

A big thanks to everyone who posted reviews (not sure how I missed Ashlee's the first time around - what a great review). Overall good stuff and now I'm absolutely stoked for the album release.

Re: Alter Bridge Listening party

especially the US army which has a rich history of not "defending" their country but rather killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people for stupid reasons. So kinda like your Military in the 40s. Yep. That's why I'm not proud of our military, or of my country, because I know that its...

Re: Alter Bridge Listening party

Mad props to Ashlee and abw for those extensive reviews! That really got the hype train rolling for me even more than it already was anyway! I'm a little bit worried about the overall theme of the album, and especially You Will Be Remembered because I'm a huge opponent of glorifying the military, e...

Hello all! I just got home from Orlando a few hours ago. My ears are still ringing and my neck is all kinds of sore from headbanging, but I made it back alive and really can't imagine an experience that could top this one. For those interested in a rundown of the songs, skip to the Song Impressions...

Re: "New Logo"... Discuss

Maybe it's just the way I see things but it looks to me like the silhouette of an old American Indian with long hair with arrows obviously pointed at his face. Given the album title it makes sense

Paying homage to the 2007 Rise Today single artwork

I painted this on a 38-inch wide masonite board using acrylic and oil paints. Can't wait to frame it. Hope you enjoy
