5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy successors to...Led Zep, 14 April 2007
This review is from: One Day Remains (Audio CD)
I have been listening to rock music for over 40 years and have been completely blown away by this album. Alter Bridge sound nothing like Led Zep - neither better nor worse, just different. But in Mark Tremonti they have a worthy successor to Jimmy Page. Tremonti, like Page, understands the dynamics of light and shade. He varies monstrous, monolithic riffs with finger-picked arpeggios, reflecting Page's electric / acoustic spectrum. He can play fast when he needs to (listen to title track "One Day Remains") but prefers a slower, emotionally-driven style, like Page. And he writes wonderful melodies. He's been quoted somewhere as saying that it's tunes which matter and Alter Bridge have these in abundance. Don't be put off by the opening track - it's the weakest on the album, but after that every one is a classic. This is the best debut album I've heard since "Led Zeppelin" and that's partly because both Page and Tremonti were veterans in relation to their "new" bands. Can't wait for Alter Bridge's second. These guys are going to be huge.
