5.0 out of 5 stars A True Hard Rock Masterpiece \m/ October 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Myles Ahead of the Competition. (4.5 stars) October 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD
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. As one of the most unique and soulful singers in rock music today, Kennedy has become perhaps one of the most underrated frontmen in recent memory.

3.0 out of 5 stars Musically great, sonically disastrous January 24, 2011
By wilmo
Format:Audio CD
First of all the band is fantastic! Musically, this is a great piece of work. I only wish I could hear it. The production and mix is disturbingly lacking in quality and quantity. I bought the CD but it sounds like a poorly compressed cheap mp3. Seriously, I have mp3s with better sound quality than this CD. It's really unfortunate that a great band capable of writing great music and executing it with similar mastery allows the producer/engineer to completely destroy all of their efforts. It's hard for me to believe this was planned by the band to sound this way. If I was allowed to listen to this disk before buying it, I wouldn't have because the sound quality is disgusting. I listen-compare this disk with anything else I have and it is noticeably lacking in audio range and dynamics-there are none. The engineering is what keeps me from giving a full 5 stars. I will give the band 5 stars and the producer gets 0 so I averaged it out at 3. As I mentioned, I'd really like to HEAR this CD but the production makes this extremely difficult.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore The Naysayers...They Have No Clue March 30, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
This album continues where Blackbird left off, and it continues to advance the phenomenal work performed by the entire Alter Bridge crew. The progression from the first album continues to evolve into a great set of songs. There aren't any songs that I rush to skip when listening to the album. They musicianship is perfect with just the right mix of balladry, hard rocking, and even a splash of metal here and there. Kennedy's vocals soar and both his and Tremonti's guitar work here is top notch. Marshall and Phillips of course keep things tight with their solid grooves. For me the highlight tracks are "Slip to the Void" and "Words Darker Than Their Wings". Check out the latter for some lead vocals from Tremonti. What really strikes me about this album is the lyrics. The band members kept stating that this album would be darker than previous attempts, and in some cases they are right. But for the most part what I found was that their focus was on striving through and surviving the hard times. To me this didn't necessarily constitute darker lyrics but more realistic.

Overall the album is most definitely worth getting. Once you have it, make sure you give it a few listens. Alter Bridge has never really pushed to be a radio friendly band, and I actually think that gives their music more depth and even after hearing a song more than 50 times I can still find something new that I didn't notice before. Be sure to check these guys out live too. Their show is one I would pay triple what I've paid to see. Their live show takes what you hear on the cd to a whole new level, unlike some bands who sound like they can't sing and walk at the same time. Get to a show. You will not be disappointed.
