Ghost is such an incredibly wonderful song. Sometimes I forget about that, until I happen to listen to it again. This acoustic version is amazing.

Myles sounds so perfect on Broken Wings. Oh I love that voice!

I'd pay a whole lot for an AB acoustic album. That's something they could actually knock out pretty quickly, too. Throw Halelujah and another cover or any other unrelated track that never made it on there as a bonus...yes, just yes.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

Holy shit, just listened to the Broken Wings version. That intro gives me massive goosebumps. What Myles plays there gives the whole thing a completely different (way more intense!) atmosphere.

I would love a set of studio versions but an MTV unplugged seems more likely. I really want to make a prospective setlist for it but I will wait until I've heard Walk The Sky since I'm sure it will have something to add to the set.

Also I learned I've been hearing Ghosts Of Days Gone By wrong all this time...

My WTS order said it has arrived in town, but still says it won't be delivered until 6:30pm tomorrow. Hoping I get surprised today!

ALBUM REVIEW: ALTER BRIDGE TRIUMPHANTLY RETURNS WITH THEIR NEW ALBUM “WALK THE SKY,” FEATURING A MIX OF SKILLFUL INSTRUMENTALS AND EMOTIVE VOCALS


Alter Bridge is one of those special bands that has both technical skills and the ability to present music with incredible emotion. From their 2004 debut, “One Day Remains,” to this month’s “Walk the Sky,” the group has displayed a gift for crafting anthemic rock songs with soaring vocals and meaty riffs.

On “Walk the Sky,” out Friday (Oct. 18), Alter Bridge triumphantly returns with 14 tracks of variety-packed hard rock. Beginning with a short introduction track “One Life,” Myles Kennedy starts the album off with hushed vocals that set this listener up for the drama that’s ahead.

“Wouldn’t You Rather,” the second track on the album and the record’s first single, is a grand, chugging rocker that shows off Mark Tremonti’s impeccable guitar playing and Kennedy’s powerful vocals, as well as the tight rhythms of bass player Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips. The song mixes memorable melodies and hard-charging, in-your-face riffing.

As “Walk the Sky” continues, each track presents a different shade of sounds and styles. “In the Deep” starts with metal guitars and then kicks things back a few notches for a soft bridge featuring Kennedy’s thick vocals, then crashes into a huge chorus.

One of the most unique tracks on the album is “Indoctrination.” The song has a deep, slugging groove throughout, offering a different vibe for Alter Bridge– dare I say it’s almost a Black Sabbath vibe. Kennedy’s vocals rule the chorus, as he sings, “I’m in your head, you can’t deny it / You’re hanging on my every word!”

Another standout, “Godspeed,” Tremonti tells Audio Ink is about the experience he had losing a loved one last year and wishing him well on his journey in the next life. “You have changed all our lives,” Kennedy sings in the chorus. “Godspeed” goes into “Native Son,” the latter track starting with eerie guitars and picking up into a straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll track.

“Dying Light,” which closes the album, is a special song that really highlights Kennedy’s strong vocals, with its soft bridge and head-bopping chorus. “In the dying light / We can begin to live again / We wake up to eternal light,” Kennedy pleas, as Tremonti kicks in with a shredding guitar solo.

On “Walk the Sky,” Alter Bridge shows kind of technical chops that only veteran musicians process, combined with an earnest, hopeful spirit that is all their own. It’s simply the kind of music you want to crank at ultimate volume and listen to over and over. With an album like “Walk the Sky,” it’s obvious why Alter Bridge remains such a success in the modern rock world and continues to grow. Ink rating: 10/10.

Aside from fan complaints about the first batch of singles, the response to the album as a whole seems to be overwhelmingly positive.

I can definitely hold out until Friday now. I haven't even heard Dying Light. So that's nine new songs for me (not including One Life which I heard on Thursday night, albeit not very well).

I don't know if it is because I ordered it a bit late, but I still haven't gotten a confirmation email from Napalm about my Earbook/Shirt bundle that the package is sent out.

They played Native Son on octane. If you download the Sirius app and skip back to 6pm that's when it played.

One light
Burning from long ago
The eternal flame
It's calling me back to find

One life
With so many tales untold
Living with open eyes
I discover a new storyline

It's nearly 2am in the UK right now and I'm staying up to see if I can catch this hahaha, cheers for the heads up!

Edit: They did, as expected it was great! The intro riff's heaviness lived up to the hype as well lol

I'm shocked the album hasn't leaked yet this close to release day, especially with people receiving pre-orders now (at least not that I've seen discussed here). Nice change from the usual leak nonsense!
