In the bottom 10 list you put some of my favorites xD
I didn't understand if this is just the songs you like the least or you just can't stand them. Because imo Ties That Bind and White Knuckles are among the best AB songs

The songs I can't seem to get into are (in no particular order):

- Make It Right
- One by One
- We Don't Care at All

btw in my top10 list I forgot Shed My Skin, which is absolutely in my top3 songs

Ties That Bind and White Knuckles are too heavy with almost no melody for my taste. I would never say they are bad songs, but if I am going to compare AB with themselves, there a bunch of songs much better that those (in my opinion, of course).

Make it Right - I know it starts slow and generic, but the brigde, the solo and the riff in the end made me falling in love with the song. It would be the number one of the songs in the middle (I don't know if it makes sense, but I divided the songs between "best", "middle", "don't care that much").

One by One - middle. Good moments, I can see good melodies, I don't know how to feel about the chorus (sometimes I like, sometimes I don't). I don't know, sometimes sounds too generic and like a filler song.

We don't care about at all - surprising I like it. It is just a bit different, enough to not feel like a filler. Better than some of the Blackbird songs that made the album.

The chorus of Ties That Bind is one the best melodies AB has imo. I guess it's not that catchy, but combined with the chords it creates a great atmosphere. Not all big and epic, but perfectly in balance with the rest of the song. Combine that with the great shuffle that really drives the intro and the verses and you've got yourself a spectacular song. Definitely one of my favourites.

Some of my least favourite ones are (in no particular order):
One By One
Break Me Down
Make It Right
Watch Your Words
Home
Breathe Again
Peace Is Broken

Ties That Bind
I am sorry, but I can not see any melody in the chorus, and no atmosphere during the song. It is really just all too flat for me. But I fully comprehend how taste and perception are different, and how "someone trash it is gold to the other one" (something like that). :cheers

One by one - I can see the reasons.
Break Me Down - Not their best, I agree. Although, it has a few good moments.
Make It Right - Don't you think a little bit before the bridge and on, it is just awesome?
Watch Your Words - for me, the perfect combination between heavy and melody.
Home - I know, sounds a bit generic, but I kinda like it. Catchy.
Breathe Again - very, very Creedish.
Peace is Broken - really? I like very much xD (I love the part when Myles and Mark sing along).

Yea, hopefully you'll come to like it someday. Then you can post about in that other thread you made :cheers

It's okay. It doesn't redeem the song for me. I always thought Zero should've taken Make It Right's place on AB III.

Peace is Broken - really? I like very much xD (I love the part when Myles and Mark sing along).

The only part I really like is the bridge. I appreciate the musicianship of the intro riff, but I just don't really feel it. A good trashy chorus could've redeemed the song, but this one completely destroys the intensity of the verses and is just sooo overly pompous. I'm so glad they didn't decide to do something like that with Bleed It Dry.

It seems like people either really love Ghost (like me) or don't like it at all. A lot of parity on that one.

Lol yea, I remember when AB III just was released there was some hate against it on here. I'm definitely on the side that loves the song.
