I'm not making this up
Well “Before the Remains” that was our first record to get back out there [as Alter Bridge], and I think a lot of the songs were on the Creed backburner for a while – there were new songs written but some of them date back to that Creed era.

Brian Marshall, 2012

Right. Songs which didn't work for Creed and were never developed. Not until Myles joined and Mark and the band took a new musical direction from their previous work.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

Well, ODR was the first AB album I listened completely, and that I bought, but I will have to go for Blackbird.

Pretty much this.

One Day Remains definitely. Then ABIII, then Blackbird.
It´s sorted by the number of my favorite songs on each album. And I prefer the sound of One Day Remains album :headbang

One Day Remains. The others are poorly produced.

Probably ODR first, barely, then Blackbird, then daylight, then AB III.

I love all 3 albums on pretty much the same level. But, AB III just pips ODR and BB for me. Only because the style of the songs appeal to me more than the first two albums. Dark and brooding. But, don't get me wrong... as I said before, I love all 3 :P

his ear? lol

Don't get me wrong Jim, I think Elvis gets a lot of unnecessary blame around here, but any ear should be able to tell BB and AB III suffer from the loudness war way more so than ODR.

Haven't paid too much attention to be honest, but that happens with some songs. I think the ending of Standing in the Sun bleeds into You're A Lie.

You're absolutely right. It's not that uncommon, really. For instance, Creed did it between "One Last Breath" and "My Sacrifice".

it sort of seems a bit lazy if you ask me... like an easy fix. if a 21 year old fan can notice it, then youd think that professionals who are paid a lot to do stuff like that would

Thought some bands did it on purpose? I really hadn't thought about it much to be honest.

It's an extremely common thing. I dunno why it's even being discussed.
