Also, its interesting, but Myles sounds a lot like Steven Tyler in a couple of places. Its not a bad thing.
Also, that end of measure descent on Cry Of Achilles funnily enough sounds a lot like Scott Stapp's Reach Out. Haha, not saying they ripped him off, but that part is very similar.
Have almost listened to the album 6 - 7 times now, still skipping a lot of songs, and Lover just keeps getting better. This song for me is better than everything on ABIII and Fortress combined. And am sure this song will be forgotten soon probably under the impression of a less complex non heavy AB song. But its the closes it gets for me to be able to recognise what this band was all about. And Addicted To Pain is turning out be better than most of the songs on the album as well..
When Myles mentioned that they have influences of Judas Priest on this album, I thought he was serious, I don't know what he was pointing at though cuz there are very vague hints of Judas Priest in ATP and that is all.
Fuck, I hope Myles releases that solo album of his soon, after this Fortress disappointment, I would need some good music from these guys to hold on to before the next AB effort. And something tells me Myles's solo just won't disappoint.
Over thinking, over analyzing, separates my body from my mind..
