Customer Review

on 29 October 2007
Although I think the much maligned Creed were a good band, they did not showcase just how good a guitar player Mark Termonti is. This was all resolved on One Day Remains - a strong debut album with great songs and some awesome guitar work.
What went wtong?
Blackbird starts well with a strong opening track but then drops to a sub par level and stays there. The songs all sound a bit generic and worryingly nu-metal. The production quality is poor and the album sound like it was recorded in a bit of a rush without finessing some of the obvious quality that you can hear, lost in the mix. There is far too much emphasis on complex yet grungy, down-tuned guitar riffing at the expense of melody. The vocals, which set Alter Bridge apart from Creed, are lost in the bassy fuzz and Tremonti's soloing never touches the spine tingling standard reached on the debut. I will persevere with this as I think Alter Bridge have a touch of class but this looks a bit like 'the difficult second album'
