Don't imagine I'll be hearing the new Alter Bridge for some time; i.e. when they release the inevitable special edition version next year, and that becomes cheap.
As for Ayreon, it's good, it's very typical Ayreon, but it's been split up in WAY too many tracks when really it's two hour-long songs. Every time it changes to a new instrumental section: new track. Every change of verse: new track. And there are no actual songs, and no choruses.
It's not an easy listen.
