No stand out tracks,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fortress (Audio CD)
Was really looking forward to this release, especially considering the positive reviews it had received in the music press. What I've found is an album with no stand out tracks, no melody's that have been the signature of the earlier albums.
I had been worried with Tremonti's comments that on previous albums he was tempered by Kennedy's lighter musical influence but that this had changed on this album. Kennedy has definitely adopted the harder approach and the album suffers as a result. Strangely I liked Tremonti's solo effort (All I Was) - it had great riffs and approachable lyrics - Fortress is sadly lacking any of this.
There aren't any bad tracks on the album but nothing to make me keep playing it as I have done with the earlier albums - a case of all filler no killer.
