I'll include a very reasonable hint that Jim posted three years ago: PLEASE DO NOT VOTE "THE LAST HERO" SONGS JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE FRESH IN YOUR MEMORY. PLEASE CONSIDER ALL SONGS AND HOW MUCH YOU LOVED THEM WHEN YOU FIRST HEARD THEM. TAKE YOUR TIME VOTING.

I love all these tracks, but I think Fallout would be last. Had to pick WoY, merely for the fact that it made me "feel" the most and is one of AB's best ballads. But have a lot of love for Cry A River (unlike 99.9999% of the universe) and also Crows and Skin. Damn this poll!

Shed my Skin, since it's my favourite AB tune ever.

I absolutely love Fallout. Had to go with this song. WoY is brillant as an accoustic song. The studio version is good as well, but I don't get the emotions this good as accoustic.

Tough one between Watch Over You and Fallout, can't really decide yet. All I know is that Cry A River and Crows stand no chance at all, and Shed My Skin is somewhere in between.

Fallout. One of a handful of songs that took a long, long time to grow on me, but it's top quality.

Could give this one to any of the options, really. No 10/10 songs on offer, but no weak ones either.

I usually go with Shed My Skin in this round but think I've had a bit of reawakening to Watch Over You, going with that this time.

This is easily the toughest choice yet. Like some have said none are really top notch AB songs but they're all solid. Even though Shed My Skin isn't even a top 5 on ODR, it means a lot to me and may end up with that one. But WoY shows the softer side of AB like no other song. Crows is bitchin from top to bottom. It's really between those three. Don't make me choose!!!

This is the weakest one for me so far, but it's the first one I'm going with a TLH song for - I pick Crows. Just a fun song, right in the middle for me.

Crows. For me it's easily the most fun song to listen to.

For me this is a good bunch, hard to choose. Going with Fallout, it always spoke to me in moments of frustration (and self-pity :))

Watch Over You or Shed My Skin.. Both incredible songs. Both contain some of my favorite Alter Bridge lyrics ever.

Gonna go with Watch Over You.

Holy crap, this one was harder than I expected. But Shed My Skin gets my vote this time (Beautiful song, great lyrics, spin tingling momnets through out), just edging out Cry A River (epic main riff, disgustingly awesome middle section, variation choruses) and Watch Over You (Just a wonderfully beautiful song, and the one I think will probably win this round).


How can anyone rate Fallout higher than Cry A River??!?? :headscratch

I like them both. Although they are on my lower tier of AB songs. Lower tier AB is still higher than most other bands good songs for me though.
