Nobody mention his size :shifty


IIRC, there was a video showing what the band members carried in their tour cases (those black/metal boxes) and while everyone else carried clothes and what not, Mark just had weights and nothing else.

They're not perfect, but I think they sound pretty good for the most part.


It's mainly the lead tones that sound very tinny/thin to me.

I literally came to the forums to see how many of you were going to post about the "turn a-wee"; I was not disappointed.

Re: "The Last Hero" User Review Thread

I know what you mean by it being hard to sit through; I have more skip tracks on TLH than I do with any prior AB album.

Re: "The Last Hero" User Review Thread

Well, just edited-in my extremely lengthy review. Hope some of you take the time to read it.

Edit: Phatnonphatness gets what I was saying, apparently. The AB sound is just missing from a bunch of those generic, modern tracks.

The Last Hero - AB Nation Discussion

So I figured I'd save all of us some time and open this thread so it'd be open on the day that the album comes out. *Post your review of The Last Hero here on October 7th* With the release of The Last Hero, Alter Bridge have once again shown their resistance to complacency and stagnation, though tha...

Re: Official "The Last Hero" Thread

What was your impression of the 1 minute preview? Or did you miss that and was the full song your first impression? I heard the preview once, so I didn't really put much thought into it, so basically the full song was my first impression. It sounds more like Mayfield Four instead of AB, so that may...

Re: Official "The Last Hero" Thread

Man, Best Buy got my copy of TLH to my house 2-3 days early even with standard shipping. The lenticular cover is really kind of cheap, though. Luckily it's just stuck on with glue dots and just comes right off. Breathe! Have you listened to it yet? Of course I have. The ONLY thing I'll say is that ...

Re: Official TABN Review of 'The Last Hero'

My average was 4.07/5 so basically it's a 4* record for me. I thought it was a pretty inconsistent album. It's got some of their best-ever songs, but also some of their worst. I suppose agreeing with you will mean admitting that I've heard the album (didn't download it, though), but yeah definitely...

Re: Official "The Last Hero" Thread

As for the AB/Tremonti comparison, I almost wish that Tremonti hadn't started his side project due to this complaint. It's like AB isn't allowed to be heavy because people will start whining and saying that the heavy songs should just be Tremonti tracks now. Well, what else is he supposed to do whe...

Re: Official "The Last Hero" Thread

Not liking this new one at all "for AB". It's a good song, but sounds definitely more like a Tremonti solo song than an Alter Bridge song. Just me, but this is really NOT what I want to hear from AB. The first three songs are cool. This one....for me, not so much. I'm the exact opposite; ...

Re: Official "The Last Hero" Thread

Show Me a Leader is my least favourite. It's just massively underwhelming. My Champion has grown on me. The Other Side has already sky-rocketed to my top 10 AB tracks ever. The Poison in Your Veins is also f'ing brilliant. Can attest to this. It's easily one of the best tracks they've ever written ...

AB uses said terminology for those tracks, so I'm just going by their usage of it. I'm a huge prog fan, so I'm very aware that they aren't truly "epics".

Re: Official "The Last Hero" Thread

I do think AB excel at the heavier, progressive material, and for them to cater to people that want ODR sounding tracks and radio singles seems pretty detrimental and yes, a step backwards as anguyen put it. I'm not saying the older material is bad in any way (I love almost all of it), but you can't...

Re: Official "The Last Hero" Thread

My Champion for me is the far worst track they ever recorded. My god, so bad Don't worry, you're not alone. It's my least favourite Alter Bridge song now. Opinion Same here. They really should have put out The Other Side or Island of Fools since they sound really heavy from those previews that went...
