This review is from: Ab III (Audio CD)
I quite liked Blackbird as an album and bought this on the strength of that. The playing, production etc are good (maybe overdone?) but the songs themselves are quite forgettable. Myles Kennedy's vocals can start to grate after a while (they all seem weirdly double-or triple-tracked which somewhat takes the soul out of them) and I get the feeling that Mark Tremonti (great guitarist though he is) sounds like he is sometimes just playing stuff that is technically difficult for the sake of it, rather that it fitting in musically.
If you haven't listened to Alter Bridge before, get Blackbird rather than this album.
