Isolation...

What a song! Very, very catchy and maybe a little more commercial than some of their other stuff, so it'll probably (hopefully) get some good plays on the radio, I think this will be the album to really get their name out there

Another song, Words Darker Than Their Wings, can now be downloaded from the Roadrunnerrecords website.

It's the song which Tremonti sings on and it's already growing on me. It's a bit more radio friendly than Isolation but damn that chorus is ****ing great!

Fantastic band. Heavy Rock at it's best. Intelligent songwriting and Tremonti is very underrated as a lead guitarist.
The title track to "Blackbird" is an epic song. I'd put it on a par with Whitesnake's "Still Of The Night", which may not be to eveybody's taste, but is a song that stood the test of time, as will this entire album.

Sooo..the albums finally leaked!

I must admit, I was not a huge fan of Blackbird, the first album yes, 2nd not so much...upon first listen to AB 3 i'm impressed..well...to at least 7 or 8 of the 14 songs....

Some epic tunes on it.....then some somewhat boring repitition...

Overall 7/10

HBK, I was the same when I heard the album for the first/second time but I'm finding the more I'm listening to it the more I like certain songs I didn't at the start. Slip to the void is amazing, as is isolation-lyrics and listening wise. Listen to it a few times you might start to like a few other songs

ALTER BRIDGE IN LONDON!!

Hellooo all Alter bridge fans! Anyone from Ireland heading over to London on the 23rd of this month for the Hammersmith gig? Cannot express in words how f*cking excited I am, Saw Myles with Slash in Vicar street, felt a little let down after that (nobodys fault might I add!) So I'm hoping Myles is gonna belt out a few amazing tunes in London

The songs i didnt like off the new album are growing on me the more i listen. Just turn it up loud and sit back and get blown away. As good as the last 2 albums with some monstrous riffs. Have my copy ordered so hopefully first thing monday i can throw it into a stereo

Damn you Chrisi! I'm in London on the 23rd and was thinking of checking this out. They're in London on the 22nd, Southhampton on the 23rd. Oh well

Agreed guys.

Slip the void is epic, as is Isolation, the riff on Still remains is Awesome!

Ghost of days gone by is fairly uplifting for such a dark album, great for turning up loud when driving, classic american rock tune I must say!

Wonderful life sounds like its missing off a Bon Jovi record though

I must agree wonderful life is kinda cheesy but I love it! Its like the "in loving memory" of this album. Cheesy enough like, but Myles voice makes it that little bit cooler

I'm also really really liking Coeur D’Alene, very catchy.

I would'nt go that far now.
All hope is gone/Make it right spring to mind as filler.

Overall though, a very good album
