Having lived through Creed with some of the masterful tunes they produced Alterbridge took it a step further with "One Day Remains" and topped it off with "Blackbird". This is a musically clever album, a cut above the mediocrity that resides in the music industry at the moment. Having seen them live 3 times I can not understand why they rae not more widely recognised for their talent. Heartfelt songs, with a message and no swearing (Linkin Park please note...do you think they'll read these reviews?). Having bought this album 2 years ago I have never stopped playing it! In my books the track Blackbird is up with classics such as Stargazer, Freebird and Stairway!
