Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 15

This one's not even close. New Way To Live is one of the best songs they've ever written. Shame it's only a B-Side.

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 14

I know I'm in the minority here. Forgive me for being blunt - WDTTW and Dying Light do nothing for me. I find them rather bland. The Damage Done got my vote. Please don't take this as a personal attack or anything like that, it's really just out of curiosity - how is it possible to be an Alter Brid...

Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown and the Raven Age

Quick tipp for everyone who's going to see AB in the coming days and doesn't know The Raven Age yet: Listen to their new album before the gig. It's really good, but the sound quality live has been so bad for me on all three concerts that I've been to that I really couldn't dig it that much. I wish I...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 14

The only duel that Words would lose is against Blackbird. Dying Light is a great song and possibly AB's best "epic" since AB III for me, but it's still way behind Words. The other tracks in this battle are among the weakest AB tracks. Words Dying Light Last Of Our Kind The Damage Done Crue...

Re: Battle of the Albums (beta)

The only real surprise for me is that TLH is in front of Blackbird. AB III being first and Fortress second is exactly the expected result. :)

Great work, Muffin!

Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown and the Raven Age

You're not missing out on much if you don't see Raven Age. They have a nice performance and some of the songs they play sound not too bad, but most of them are really similar and pretty mediocre. Definitely better than Shinedown doing 3 of their songs with playback while telling you some fake story ...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 13

The Last Hero is a prime example for a song where the individual parts are better than the song as a whole. But even then, it's probably my least favourite AB "epic". Still a good track, to me not as good as it could've been. Life Must Go On is my winner here because it's a beatiful song. ...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 13

Easily The Last Hero. And it looks like I have to update my album spreadsheet since you're putting Breathe at Track 13, haha. I'll do it when I'm able to, but you may have to revise your rankings it you add to it. :p I don't mind the order being different. You don't have to update it if you ask me....

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 12

Winner: Fortress

... and this result is actually really surprising. Last time, Island of Fools won this battle, with Fortress following very closely behind. This year, Island of Fools only got 2 (!) votes. Probably the biggest difference compared to last iteration so far.

Re: Looking for advice on Guitar Clinics

Have a look at the review I posted a few weeks ago: http://thealterbridgenation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3721 The clinic this year is very different to those of past years because it's officially a Guitar and Songwriting clinic. At least in Leipzig (where, admittedly, Mark overrun by 30 m...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 12

Just asking out of future reference: are any of the following songs going to be considered for ranking down the line? Solace Cruel Sun On My Way Now Never Born to Follow We Don’t Care At All And not that it would likely change much, but will Breathe still be associated with TLH instead of ODR? I'll...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 12

Island of Fools for me. Best track on TLH. Fortress and Walking on the Sky are both amazing, but for some reason Fortress has always been underappreciated by me (probably because the chorus is a bit too weak for an epic track). Island of Fools is as great as a straight-forward melancholic rock track...
