rollingstone AB review

does this confuse anyone else, read on i'm sure it will;

One Day Remains Two Star Ranking

Three-quarters of Creed coldier on without Scott Stapp


You can't kill Creed, even if you try. Anyone hoping that the departure of Scott Stapp would end an era of evangelical grunge would be advised to skip the debut from Alter Bridge a.k.a. three-fourths of Creed with a new singer. New frontman Myles Kennedy is a better singer than his one-note predecessor - his upper-octave voice lands him capably between Chris Cornell and Robert Plant - but he's just as prone to hokey religious imagery. There's already talk of an "angel" and a "crown of thorns" on the opening track, "Find The Real", and it's not an isolated theme here. On the other hand, guitarist Mark Tremonti just shreds. His piercing solos on "One Day Remains" and "Metalingus" are positively Slash-like and a hell of a lot better than anything on the Velvet Revolver record. Maybe there's some hope for being reborn after all.

so myles' vocals are somewhat like cornell and plant and the shredding is better than what slash did on contraband and yet the album only deserves two stars? the only negative the author really states is the religious references.

No, you're not the only one. They are ok but certainly not the best group in town.

negative reviews suck but that isn't even the issue. the author states the vocals and guitar work is really good and yet the album only deserves two stars? didn't weathered get 3 stars? get a clue rollingstone!

weathered got 3.5, here's the review

Weathered RS Review

it's funny that in the AB review, they refer to Stapp as the "one note predecessor".

but then they say this about his voice in the Weathered review: "Scott Stapp's gorgeously able tenor-baritone"

i'm guessing that two different people did those reviews

Ain't that the truth. I subscribe to that mag but there are so many ads and non-music related crap in there and the music they do cover, isn't worth listening to alot of the time.

I'd go with the Weathered review rather than the AB review for a more accurate description of Stapp's voice. I wouldn't call him the 'one note predecessor' at all. Granted, he doesn't hit the same high notes that Myles does, but those high notes are what grate on my nerves the most! Just my humble opinion.

Basically what i have said all along...great on the technical side...apparently R.S. has issues with the lyrics as well...and well, the author of the piece gave THEIR viewpoint...Besides, i hope people weren't expecting AB to receive nothing but GLOWING reviews...some people just don't like what they hear...that simple.

Once again, personal choice...
