Broken Wings is one of the most overrated AB songs in my eyes. It's never really evoked any intense emotions in me. Cradle is so much better on every level. I also love Make It Right, but it suffers from being a feel-good song rather than an emotional rollercoaster, which is why it only comes in second. Take The Crown is okay musically, but has the objectively worst lyrics AB have ever written.

I adore Cradle's verses and the intro but the rest just does nothing for me. It's all a bit ovewrought and dense and it loses the true emotion in all three melodrama.

Broken Wings is iconic to me and the song that stuck out most upon my first listen to ODR in 2005.

Broken Wings is the song that made me a fan so will always hold a special place in my heart, but I've got for Cradle as I want to give TLH some love.

The rest:
Take the Crown
Peace is Broken
Before Tomorrow Comes
Make it Right.
And if you fall, at least you tried
As you tremble on the wire...

As far as TLH tracks go, Cradle has my favorite solo on the album (with honorable mention to TLH & TWotW).

But hearing my Wife's beautiful voice singing Broken Wings next to me, at several shows... Yeah, nothing tops that.

This so far will be my easiest to sort.

Before Tomorrow Comes
Broken Wings
Cradle to the Grave
Take the Crown
Peace Is Broken
Make It Right

The top three are pretty special, Take the Crown is quite good but still middle-of-the-road by AB standards, and Peace Is Broken and Make It Right fall pretty down by the wayside for me here.

Went with Broken Wings, though Cradle to the Grave was really close. Take the Crown and Peace is Broken are both really good songs as well, just not quite as good as those two. Before Tomorrow Comes and Make It Right, however, are 2 of my least favorite AB songs and I wouldn't be too torn up if I never heard them again.

Spot on. There's a beautiful song in there, but they ruined it by force-fitting it to the standard Alter Bridge formula.

Peace Is Broken is the standout here for me. Amazing riffing, lovely bridge (fantastic Tremonti vocals throughout the entire song, really), great outro solo.

FFFFFF Peace is Broken is so underrated. The riff, the riff with chord changes, the melodies, the solo, fuck dude, that song is so good. We all know Broken Wings is gonna win though, and I do like that song

Agree completely. First time I heard it and I was at the intro I didn't know what to expect, and then the main riff kicks in and all you can do is be like "ohhhhhhhh yea". Also another thing to add on to your list of things I like about the song: the chorus harmonies with Mark & the bridge when Myles' and Marks vocals get flipped in the mix. Just sounds too good IMo, one of my fav songs from Fortress.

The main riff of Peace Is Broken with the "BAO, BAO BAO, BAO, BAO BAO" reminds me of like Pac-Man or Hungry Hungry Hippos chomping at the bit.

It was a REALLY tough call between Broken Wings and Before Tomorrow Comes. Both are restaurant quality songs, but I went with BTC for the sweet backing vocals.

Tough call between Broken Wings and Cradle for me. Both are 2 of my favs. BW get's the nostalgic feels but Cradle I think is actually a better song.

Peace is broken has really grown on me since I didn't really like it when Fortress first came out. But it's got a great bridge and solo. BTC is okay... Make it Right is just a crappier version of that song. And I haven't been able to really get into Take the Crown, even though I like the intro/outro of it, but the verse chorus and lyrics just don't do it for me.

I'd really like for them to take their master of BTC and do as they do in the final chorus, putting Mark's "wah wah" backing vocals simultaneously with Myles singing the chorus instead of after.
