There comes a time in your life in which you don't know what path you're following, what awaits you, why you're behaving in a certain way, or when all will become clear. You don't know what to believe in. Well, don't worry, says the latest Alter Bridge work: it all ends well. Alter Bridge, by the way, seem to not be touched by these problems: their ideas and programs shine now, clearer than ever.

- Guitarist's "heard-before riffs" also made me felt like pressing the stop button for several times...however against all odds, I managed to got through all those hardship and finally i finished listening to the whole album.
- Many Ratings were more than 7 has proven the dropping standards of the listeners nowadays.

- "Heard-before riffs". Do you have any idea of who you are talking about?
- Ratings: oh God you rated 9 Dedicated To Chaos and Illud Divinum Insanus. I must assume yours is a joke profile and that nothing that you say should be taken seriously.

Was just thinking that track 5 "The Uninvited" reminds me of someone else and then realised it sounds a bit like Tool. Has anyone else heard this similarity?

To be honest, even though I am an Alter Bridge fan, I couldn't listen to this when it first came out. Pretty sure it's because I simply wasn't in the mood for this style of music at the time.

I've finally decided to give it a listen though, and holy damn... This one's powerful, and it's also the most metal album they've ever made. I guess Tremonti really enjoyed writing the kind of stuff he did for his solo project, and decided he wanted to write stuff like that for Alter Bridge, too. But I daresay, this is a bit better than the stuff he did for his solo project.

I came on this record 4th time this year. This for sure, not a watered down rock record to please the fans.

Although, I castigated their one of the songs(2nd comment) 'cause they streamed the most weak track off this album. But, oh boy album is totally bonkers. Well written, nice guitar riffs, great bass and kit pounding and more importantly vocals which I think has shaped the album perfectly.
