It’s fun to go back and read old reviews from years back only to check out which (or if) any opinions have changed since then. It’s also quite fun to read some of the comments to some reviews. When I’m now about to write the review for Alter Bridge’s new record, it’s with a different mind-set than I had in 2010. Or in 2012. Back then I was discovering a band that I hadn’t really made an impact on me. In 2010, Alter Bridge had two albums under their belt, two albums that never resonated me at all. I didn’t dislike them but I wasn’t exactly a fan either. And to this day, those two albums has failed to make a great impression on me. They’re ok but that’s it. Things have changed since then. I am now a fan. I can honestly say that I love Alter Bridge now. And all that started with AB III (2010) and by 2012 and Fortress, I was a convinced fan with everything that comes with that.
