Excitement and anticipation were the feelings just before I played this CD!
Alter Bridge deliver with full force here, the 3 year wait was worth it!
I read that this is a loose concept album of sorts. And believe me, there's 14 songs here,
but none of them tend to bore you half way through.

And after listening to this cd for 3 days straight now - in the car, Home, Office Radio.. & so on..
Below is my track-by-track review of this album.

01. Slip Into The Void - Myles starts off this dark mood setter with soft sung, creepy vocals, something unheard in previous albums. Soft guitar picking in the background begin to paint a picture and give you a taste of things to come! The Riff here reminds me of "Find The Real"... Only darker and more twisted!

02. Isolation - this is the albums First single, all round fast paced and heaviest song on the album. There's some good drumming here.. Around 2m 19sec, Tremonti breaks into a brilliant odd / even time signature speed metal riff! Totally takes you by surprise... and of course, its followed by Myles' guitar solo.

03. Ghost of Days Gone By - The intro to this song brought a big smile on my face.. its very up beat with an almost punk feel to it... again, different! & a sound that's reminiscent of Alter Bridge's ghost of days gone by . . . . . ;o) But around the 2m 21sec mark, the song takes a complete 180° dive into darkness, reminding us what ABIII is all about \m/

04. All Hope Is Gone - This song is a highlight... its got a very different sound than other AB songs. Big Riffs combined with Myles' more soulful vocals. Its probably got the best lead solo of the album.

05. Still Remains - This song is all MeTaL!

While the Creed reunion has been good in that it has kept Scott Stapp busy enough to stop chucking Orangina bottles at women, it has also put the superior Alter Bridge on the backburner. Money talks, and when Mark Tremonti, Scott Philips and Brian Marshall stepped away from the band to relive their turn-of-the-century glory days, no one could blame them. Had it meant the end to Alter Bridge - a band that is getting progressively better and better with each album - then surely it would be a tragedy. No worries though, as the band has reconvened with frontman Myles Kennedy and producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (who oversaw production for 2007's "Blackbird" as well) to craft their epic third effort, simply titled "AB III."

Upon first listen to the album's dark and moody opening track, "Slip to the Void," it is obvious that Alter Bridge is ready and willing to step into new territory. No longer confined by their other dayjob, Tremonti and company let loose all over the record. Although more restrained than the riff-heavy "Blackbird," "AB III" shows a band branching out and honing their craft to perfection. These three guys play off of each other so naturally that they might as well be sharing a brain at this point. That's not to say Kennedy is a slouch himself, though. Quite the contrary, it is the singer who drives the bulk of the album. Whereas album's past were led by Tremonti's riffage and the solid rhythm section of Philips and Marshall, this record truly belongs to Kennedy.

Being a Creed fan since they began, I've also been a fan of Alter Bridge since the beginning. Their first album One Day Remains was a great album. It sounded more like Creed with a different lead singer but all tracks were good such as Find The Real, Open Your Eyes, and Burn It Down. Then came Blackbird which is even heavier than One Day Remains and you could tell that they were getting out of the Creed sound with a more sound of their own. Blackbird still remains my favorite Alter Bridge album but ABIII is really close. With this album they stick with their heavier sound heard on Blackbird. This album is a little more progressive with not only the songs themselves but with the guitar solos and they definitely dark compared to their previous releases and they still know how to make an album worth listening to.

1. Slip Into The Void 9/10 - I was actually expecting something like the punch of "Ties That Bind" for the first track. However, when you first listen to this track you definitely know that this song sets the mood of the album. Starts off atmospheric and light then comes out with a bang in the middle of the verse with an amazing chorus.

2. Isolation 10/10 - Loved this song instantly when I first heard it. One of the heaviest songs they've done and it's now their biggest hit on radio. The verses, chorus, bridge, guitar solo all stand out in this one.

3. Ghost Of Days Gone By 10/10 - Another great song. I love how the verses are fast and then a mid-tempo chorus for the song and an amazing chorus as well. Would not be surprised if this was a single from the album.

4. All Hope Is Gone 8/10 - My favorite part of this one are the verses. The guitar chords at the very beginning are some of my favorites on the record.
