And here id for the bashers on vh1 message board 1- its sounds like creed because well And he is with the same band! So dont judge! And how could you not like that song it kicks ass! And i mean amazing And I do miss scott stapp being in the band but thats how it goes and When i heard that first hard dropped D guitar chord in distortion when i hit play on the vh1 site It felt good. Even better to hear that rumbling bass knowing brian is back on board. And to hear Phillips making fireworks with his premier custom set.
Forum Diplomat. Have a good stay here! Myles Kennedy in a sing-off - it's ridiculous. SP: Actually, we are setting that up. MT: It was in your contract when you signed up with us. I'll make a better review in my opinion First thing that's changed: It begins with Flip hitting the drums!!!
Most of Creed songs begin with Mark's guitar and then Flip starts his job. Very nice! The sound: I was expecting something totally different, harder And that's what I loved about it!!! It has Mark's signature, which means it's amazing! I loved the melody. Honestly, I didn't get chills down the spin like when I heard My Sacrifice for the first time. But I've never been so anxious for a song before and after I heard it I was literally with my arms shacking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think it's up the chills in emotions scale! The solo Mark shows how to shred it up!!! It's beautiful, the guitar is singing along! And finally he decided to show his voice. I always liked the songs he sings. Flip: he's always improving. I don't know much about drums, but it fits so well to the song: not hidden, not over heard, it's perfect the way it is. Brian: as I said, my speakers didn't allow me to hear the bass parts. When I fix it, I'll have a better notion, but from what I heard it I was glad he's back.
He's unique, he manages to create sub-melodies like in Say I and Pity for a Dime! Well done! And last , but not the least: Myles: what a range, so much control!!! I knew he was good, I dig M4's stuff after we knew he was the one, but on this song I love Stapp's voice and his way of singing, but Myles is better trained.
He rules!!! I wasn't surprised because I knew where he was coming from I can't dare trying to sing AB's songs because I'd ruin it. And I love when he goes "uuuuhhhhhh"-ing. The Lyrics: awesome!!! Indeed I was blown away, as Denise forecasted. Really beautiful! They were really inspired and I wonder by what! Although many comparissons are being made to Creed, I don't think it's a bad comparisson.
There's nothing wrong. I'm sure that when we hear the next songs, the band will grow apart. Indeed it was an excellent choice for a debut song and to get known. Cheers, Alter Bridge!!! You guys have no idea how I missed your work!!! That's what motivate us to keep going! But the bestest thing is that they know I exist now, since DJ Buckethead mentioned my name to them!
Are we not allowed to say we don't like it if we don't because you disagree? I was looking forward to this and thus far the first song has been a disappointment. Obviously I'll listen to the album and judge the band from that, but I'm not convinced right now.
See the land of the long white cloud Cape Reinga, to the fiords in the south. Harbour lights in the City of Sails Aroha, the love that never fails See the bird with the leaf in her mouth After the flood all the colours came out.

There's no need to be rude! I can expect alot of creed fans not to like Alterbridge just because the difference of them. Last edited by Xterminator27 : at PM.

I'm pretty sure you don't have the right to post anything you want on a BB. You also can't scream fire in a crowded theater Can't wait for the whole CD now. But I do respect someone's right to not like it and to discuss why they don't.

Something like creed without Stapp. Anyway, I like the song very much. I can feel Mark's happiness in this work. I love the new song. Mark's guitar work is awesome, he's finally showing what he's capable of. I think Flip is sooo much better on the drums when he plays like this. The two have definitely come into their own.
I never got to hear Brian so this was a real treat! He can play the bass sooo well. And I was a little iffy about Myles, but I love his voice and the range it can get. Very awesome! I don't think this is a song for everyone, but as long as they're happy with it so am I.
Great Job guys! Oh yeah.. I think it's a very Creed-like song too. Maybe it's because it was a song written by Mark when he thought it would be recorded by Creed..
I'm also guessing this is the most radio-friendly song on the CD and that's why it was released first.
