First off, let me just say that I began following Mark after discovering Creed back in my college days. Since then, I've followed him to Alter Bridge, and now his solo project. This guy is incredible - he really is one with his guitar. You've never seen wrists/fingers move so fast. He is very precise in his playing and makes sure to have plenty of melodic runs in every song he writes, as opposed to in your face head-banging on a single note for an entire song like some other bands. One final note on Mark, after meeting him back in '09 after a Creed concert, I can say that he is a very down to earth, stand-up guy. He presents himself very well in person, as well as on stage - in contrast with some other dudes out there who feel they have to smash a guitar or flip off the crowd to get a reaction. His talent speaks for itself.

As I mentioned in the subject, "All I Was" is what Mark Tremonti fans, such as myself, have been waiting for. With Creed, Mark must tame down his hard metal roots to fit the musical style of the band. With Alter Bridge, he is able to incorporate a lot more since he is the founder. With his solo project, he obviously pulled out all the stops and put everything he is into it. (Who knew he had such sick vocals to boot?!) In my own personal opinion, a single catchy riff can really make a track stand out. Mark has mentioned in interviews that his head is full of riffs that may or may not materialize into a track that makes an album. "All I Was" contains several such tracks. Some tracks with brilliant riffs that stand out in my mind include "Brains", "You Waste Your Time", "Giving Up", and "Proof".

Tremonti delivers BIG TIME on this CD. The other reviews get it right in the song breakdowns and the vibe of this so i will keep this somewhat short and focus on my minor blemishes. 'Tremonti' nearly got 5 stars, but i have a couple of small factors that bring it slightly down to earth. BUT, I emphasize, I am very happy and blown away with 80% of this CD. It is heavy (heavier than expected), has slightly melodic choruses (not overbearing cheese), absolutely incredible fretwork in the solo's and a very strong Vocal performance from the man himself.

This disc has some excellent tracks. Very HEAVY moments. My only 2 small issues are almost the same issues I have with the Alter Bridge discs. There are a couple tracks that are 'ok'. Not quite filler but not top of the line. Only problem with that is many would see the tracks I find marginal as great, so it is an opinion, but holds me back from a 5 star. There are many tracks to choose from so a couple 'not so perfect' ones is to be expected I suppose. This is not a negative in reality. The great songs are REALLY great so it would be hard, if not impossible, to keep that momentum on the whole disc.

Also, Tremonti has a great, soulful Voice, but towards the end of the disc it starts to fall flat to the ears as he doesn't have a ton of range. BUT I have the same issue with Alter Bridge CD's in the other direction as Myles Kennedy's voice starts to be overbearing to me, in terms of pitch, towards the end of the CD's. In a perfect world, Alter Bridge would be a 2 man vocalist band. 2 or 3 tracks with Tremonti singing on those CD's would work well and make the discs flow better IMO. Not to say they are not excellent as is because they all are.

Those familiar with Mark Tremonti know his history of being one of the best guitar players around today. He is a founding member of 2 bands, Creed and Alter Bridge. He is an award winning guitar player and songwriter. It was finally time, though, for Tremonti to go out on his own for a solo album. All I Was showcases not only his amazing guitar work, but also his really solid vocal talent. Tremonti has masterfully created an album that sounds great not only upon the first listen, but one that will sound just as good when you listen to it years from now. Not many times can a debut album be as perfect as this one. In a world where music is manufactured to all sound the same, Tremonti stands head and shoulders above it all. For good old fashioned speed metal at it's finest, pick up this album!

Mark Tremonti is undoubtedly my favorite guitarist to emerge from the '90s. Even if you don't like his music, you can't deny the man's talent. I was excited to hear that he was working on something that he considered too fast and heavy for his work in Creed or even Alter Bridge. I like his ballads too, but I certainly don't have anything against the heavy stuff! My only concern is how Mark would do as a vocalist. I can say that he does just fine as a singer, though it goes without saying that he doesn't have the range or ability of Myles Kennedy (of Alter Bridge). The music is great too! There's plenty of heavy riffs, face-melting solos, and the melodies have a catchy punch even on the slower tunes. I could break down a review of this album song by song, but I think a lot of my descriptions would sound too similar. I'll just say that the music is heavy and at times very fast, but it doesn't sound angsty. Mark's vocals and lyrics sound more like a man who is strong, independent, and noble, and he's just putting different aspects of his life into perspective. While this album offers some of the heaviest moments we've ever heard from Tremonti, I honestly don't see why these couldn't have been Alter Bridge songs. Sometimes it's even very easy to imagine Myles singing these tunes. Perhaps he has something else in mind for the future of his other bands. This album has its melodic moments too, so all in all it's not incredibly different than what we're used to hearing from this guitar god. I think this is a solid release, but I denied the album a 5th star simply because I think it could have done just as well (if not better) as an Alter Bridge album. Either way, I think the fans won't be disappointed!
