Alterbridge - Blackbird
Review By discconnected
Determined to create their own legacy rather than live in the shadow of Creed, Alter Bridge return with their sophomore CD, "Blackbird," showing a suprising evolution that pushes the band into more aggressive territory.

Themes of introspection, optomism and healing run throughout this album's thirteen songs (or buy the Best Buy edition for two bonus tracks), The first track "Ties That Bind" kicks things into gear with a fast and heavy verse and an epic chorus. This is definitely a darker, heavier band than we saw on the debut album, and although it does feature a few radio-friendly tunes (like the first single "Rise Today"), overall this is harder than a mainstream rock album. Whether or not this album is the final nail in the Creed coffin, Alter Bridge have certainly arrived in their own right.
