Blackbird

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hard Rock album of all time. Period., 1 Oct 2013
This review is from: Blackbird (Audio CD)
I sincerely believe Blackbird is the greatest hard rock album ever released. There's not a single bad song, you have one of the most beautiful and touching songs in Watch over you and simply put a masterpiece in the title track. Ties that bind, Come to life and White knuckles will make you wanna bang your head on a wall, Brand new start slows things down a bit and is an amazing ballad, Rise today has a strong message and is also a rocker, other standout tracks include Coming home & Before tomorrow comes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 30 Sep 2013
This review is from: Fortress (Audio CD)
Alter Bridge are one of the biggest hard rock acts of our time and this easily shows in Fortress, a much more progressive record than the previous ones. From the breathtaking opener "Cry of Achilles" to the epic closing title track, songs alternate between straight-up hard hitting rockers ("Addicted to pain", "Bleed it dry", "Peace is broken", "Cry a river") and more melodic gems ("Lover", "Calm the fire", "All ends well").
Every song, with the exception of "All ends well", which sounds a bit like previous AB songs (I like to compare it to "Life must go on" from AB III) is different from any previous releases and showcases the new progressive direction that the band has taken; and don't get me wrong, this new sound is amazing !

My personal favorites are "Cry of Achilles", "Addicted to pain", "Calm the fire" and "Fortress".

The wait was definitely worth it, Fortress is a brilliant piece of work and the top album of 2013 in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection at its best, 28 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First I'd like to say kudos to Amazon for shipping this DVD so fast, I live in Paris and I got it 2 days after its release, great job guys!

As for the DVD: it's all in the title.
I didn't think AB could top their Amsterdam performance but in my opinion they did. All of the classics are there plus 7 songs from AB III; the energy the band put in their performance is amazing and the fan response is even better, the mosh pits are awesome!! You can tell playing at Wembley was really a dream come true for them (plus the fact that Myles can't stop smiling and laughing says it all)

Highlight of the concert in my opinion: The breathtaking wonderful life/watch over you combination (that you can listen to over and over again thanks to the Audio CD included in the package).

Overall an amazing package that YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO BUY!!
