Sounds more like Slash's solo song played by Alter Bridge. Not bad at all but I'm not in awe like I was with ATP.

Last 90 seconds are amazing but not a fan of oooohs :D

I'm only giving it one listen, considering it's a radio edit.

Loving it so far. The whoa's are pretty catchy.

The ohh's should be a good singalong live. Love the chorus.

There's 1:15 more music in the actual song :D

Dont like the "wohooo" thing. Cool riff and a really decent song.

Hmm. Was it just me or was Tremonti's solo sounding A LOT like the ending of his solo in The Cage from Dust??

[EDIT] - I like the "whoa"s.

Woah, not how I expected it to go after the 30 sec preview we got! Catchy tune, interesting chorus chords/ timing.

Ditto on the cage solo! Way too familiar in parts anyway!

The whole part we heard in the preview is missing, but I like it. Will wait for the full song to give it a more thorough listen. Oh, and I agree with Nicklord, it is a bit SMKC-ish, though for me that's not necessarily a bad thing

Not an immediate hit for me. Too much overdubbing and sounds a bit busy. I'm sure it'll grow though.

I hope it's just the stream but there is no power in the guitar sound. It's totally buried.

I don't dig those pauses on the chorus. Why?

Sounds so incredibly Slash-esque, not sure if I like this.

How am I supposed to go out there and live life, knowing there's 3/4th of a new Alter Bridge song out there?

I can still hear it in my head, after only one listen. It's so catchy...

The song is awesome, but I repeat I don't understand those pauses on the chorus, they broke the rhythm of the song. The final chorus is awesome, they could do it during all the song.

Guitars need to be more sharper. They are buried under a wall of bass.

I loved the pauses in the chorus.

Something different. Yay!
