Guys, let's not share any links to copyrighted material. (Facelessman – I do appreciate you specifying *legally* in your post.) Even if you find them on a public site like YouTube, they're actively being taken down anyway so the band would obviously prefer these tracks not be proliferated illegally at this time. Thanks for your understanding.

Oh i love Outright,have from the moment i heard it

Im not sure if this will be a popular opinion but as a rule i absolutely love the mixing on this album.Myles and Mark are very clearly split in 2 channels and its easy to hear what both contribute to each song,that goes for both guitars and vocals.Also i think Brian and Flip are much more present in the mix.That and i love loud boomy live feel from each song certainly sounds great in my car pumped up

Yeah but it doesn't work for Metalingus...They should have made sure that Tremonti's guitar was on both channels. Now it just sounds empty...

Absolutely love Solace, such a great track. Cruel Sun and Symphony of Agony are both great as well.

Two notes:
- Myles, thanks for being classy. I was so disappointed at Myles for dropping an F-bomb in Ghosts on the Live at Wembley album. That was unnecessary and really ruined that performance for me. In between songs, okay fine... but don't adlib it into a song. You're better than that.

- Why no Island of Fools? The best track on The Last Hero and it was left off. No Fortress either. Yet Poison In Your Veins made it, which is an easily skippable track.

Symphony of Agony is the exact same song as Last Of Our Kind, right?

He likes to use that word when mentioning broken hearts. I've heard him use it several times in AtP live.

Nice! Hadn't even thought about it charting as a live album.

I picked up a copy tonight on Amazon, and I enjoyed both new tracks. But man Solace is really outstanding. I guess I see why it didn't make the main album, but for an unreleased track it really packs a lot of emotion. I miss the days of those lyrics and that voice.

No complaints about (especially) Marks guitar sound?

I noticed it a lot already on live recordings, and this album is no different. Listen to the Cry of Achilles verse or the intro of Metalingus with only the right side, that's where it's the most apparent for me. There is no one on this planet that can actually say that sounds good, right? Or is it just me?
It was already annoying me on some other recordings, but on this live album it's really really ruining it for me (maybe because it's just the sound). It sounds super sloppy, not sure if it's the playing or that Mark has a difficult sound to record or both. But dayum... Myles sounds a bit more tight overall I think.

But maybe I'm just crazy.

Was about to post about this. Cry of Achilles sounds like absolute shit as far as Mark's guitar is concerned.

The guitar intro/verse kind of reminds me of Inside Us All.

Is it just me, or are there issues with customer service at the Alter Bridge store? I pre-ordered my set and it has shown "ready to ship" for a good while now. I emailed customer support a few days ago and I still haven't received a response. One would think the band would care more about their fans and customers than that. I can't imagine they are aware. Pretty sad.

Man I love Solace. Can't believe it was a B-side. Worth the 14 year wait. Cruel Sun isn't bad either. Love the harmonic they strike throughout.
