This review is from: Fortress (Audio CD)
It's not often I write a review, but usually I only do it if something is really bad or disappointing or it's really good. Fortunately, AB fans, I've only got praise for this album, Alter Bridge's fourth offering. And it doesn't disappoint, not one little bit. It's an absolutely amazing and perfectly written and produced piece of musical genius, from a band who can do no wrong and simply go from strength to strength. I've thoroughly enjoyed everything that Alter Bridge has made so far, but what astonishes me is that they just get better and better. One Day Remains was a great album, Blackbird was an amazing album, ABIII took the band to new heights with their songwriting, and Fortress, in my opinion, is actually their best yet. Every track on the album offers something different and all four band members are really showing the rock and music world what they are made of - tough musical talent. They all work for the band, not themselves, and it shows. This is the best album of the year and the best AB have offered - and that's no easy feat considering the quality of their previous three albums. Perfectly executed and brilliantly balanced between modern and classic rock, metal and prog-rock, I'm impressed every day I listen to Fortress. I'm writing this review on the day I'm seeing Alter Bridge live at Wembley Arena - can't wait!
