Editorial Reviews

Alter Bridge's Universal Republic debut is the follow up to their debut album, the Gold-certified album One Day Remains, which debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart its week of release. The album featured three consecutive hits on rock radio: (Open Your Eyes, Find The Real, and Broken Wings). Comprised of Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips, Brian Marshall and Myles Kennedy, three of the four members of Alter Bridge made up the 30+ million selling band Creed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rocking second album! November 6, 2007
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
Alter Bridge return with an even better album than their powerful debut! This disc is filled with great rock tunes played by a tight band and the ever impressive vocals of Myles Kennedy. On this new album guitarist Mark Tremonti is playing better than ever and achieves a nice wall of sound. His solos have also gained considerable improvement in style and sound. Despite Tremonti's increased presence, I really think that the highlight of this band is the intense vocals of Myles Kennedy. His dynamic voice is pure rock heaven and so enjoyable to listen to. Good solid production and a nice bonus track on the import version rounds out this great album. I think the only improvement could have been the flow of the album as I think the middle section is so strong that a bigger and more intense opening song would have been great. It feels like a long time since such a good rock band has been around and Alter Bridge is definitely one of the quality bands out there. Highly recommended to fans of original quality hard rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars The final nail in the coffin of Creed. October 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Okay, so it's now official. Creed is dead, and Alter Bridge is here to stay.

Back in the summer of 2004, when AB's major-label debut "One Day Remains" was released, a lot of folks wrote these guys off as Creed clones or wannabes, merely because 3/4 of the band is made up of ex-members of Creed. And while some Creed-like sounds were present on that disc, on the whole it was fresh and exciting music from a completely different band. Guitarist Mark Tremonti was permitted to play in a fashion he never had before during his Creed days and the rhythm section, comprised of drummer Scott Phillips and bassist Brian Marshall (who actually left Creed before their 2001 release "Weathered"), really showed off its A-game. However, the true ace in the hole for these guys was new frontman Myles Kennedy, of Mayfield Four fame. With vocal range and passion that Scott Stapp couldn't match on his best day, Kennedy slowly emerged as a voice to be reckoned with in modern rock. The band had a few semi-successful singles in the form of "Open Your Eyes," "Find The Real," and "Broken Wings" (as well as WWE wrestler Edge using "Metalingus" as his entrance theme), but on the whole it seemed as if they couldn't escape from Creed's shadow. And although One Day Remains was certified Gold, the band's future didn't look too bright, as they remained unheard from for the better part of nearly three years.

Enter their Universal-Republic debut, just released today: Blackbird.

How does it sound? Well, to be perfectly honest, *much* better than the debut. These guys have clearly matured a great deal musically. Gone are almost any traces of the Creed sound that "remained." (No pun intended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think they found the will to change... October 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Alter Bridge is 3/4 of what used to be Creed. On their debut they suffered associations with their former projects (mainly Creed, not so much Mayfield Four), and while being a fantastic cd, One Day Remains didn't do as well domestically as predicted. After much turmoil and three years, Alter Bridge is back with a new label and sound on their sophomore effort Blackbird. Songs such as Metallingus, Watch Your Words, Find the Real, and The End Is Here foreshadowed what Alter Bridge's main sound would become. Due to the full integration of guitarist and vocalist Myles Kennedy, the songwriting has changed and fresh new ideas and chord progressions are on display through out the album. With two guitars and improved bass, drums, and backing vocal work focusing on more agressive songs with stronger melodies and even more scorching solos can we really be dissapointed? If there's one fault it's that sometimes they emphasize their target notes (hooks) quite a bit and it can get tiring if you're not able to hear the bass, drums, and intricacies that beef up the sound and BUILD AROUND THE HOOK. There's quite a bit of diversity on here but for the most part the cd as a whole fits into the hard rock category.
Ties That Bind-Hard Rock with metal influences, fairly simple song structure but with HUGE riffs and beefed up final chorus with lead guitar and ending on a solo make the song a favorite. 9/10
Come to Life-Extremely downtuned groovy intro riff that rumbles into a driving verse followed by a dynamic pre-chorus and very melodic chorus. GREAT solo with backing rthym and again there's a final chorus with an added lead guitar riff. 9.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock and Roll IS BACK!!! October 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Rock & Roll has RETURNED! ALL HAIL ALTER BRIDGE!!! Finally, TRUE music made by TRUE musicians has returned. Now, would someone PLEASE remove all the crap that's littering the airwaves?

This sophomore effort from Alter Bridge is more like a doctoral dissertation. In short, this album is nearly perfect. From the first track to the last----NO FILLER! The opening is like a punch in the face. And, if you like energy, well, huh, um, you've come to the right place. Blackbird is packed with the emotion that has been sadly missing from music for a long time.

Blackbird also contains the amount of energy that can only be compared with a grenade----with the pin pulled----thrown into a CASE of grenades----riding shotgun in a fully loaded fuel truck----driven straight into a nitro glycerin plant!!!

The track "Rise Today" has already been slated by CBS to appear as promotional use for SCI: Miami, as well as by the WWE for upcoming wrestling events. (This was decided before the album was even released.) "Rise Today" in incredible, but its definitely not alone on this album. (In fact, there are too many good hooks to mention in a review.) Also worthy to note is the very Led Zeppelin-like "Watch Over You", which you will get from the first note. All in all, the band's influences are obvious throughout this album.

Also, even though One Day Remains was, and is, a great album----you can definitely tell that lead vocalist Myles Kennedy had a hand in the songwriting for Blackbird. Not to mention, Alter Bridge enlists the guitar chops of Kennedy (which are huge) for this album; and, lead guitarist Mark Tremonti appears to not have any problem sharing the workload with Kennedy.

In short, Blackbird is beauty, brains, and tremendous amounts of brawn. You know, music that makes the hair on your arm stand up, and makes you want to sing and shout at the top of your lungs? That's Blackbird, and that's Alter Bridge.

Can't wait for this to be released
Rise Today and Ties That Bind are both absolutely incredible. If the rest of the CD comes close to these songs it will really be a ridiculously awesome album.
