Review: Tremonti – All I Was

Rated:

4/5

As a founding member of both Creed and Alter Bridge, guitarist Mark Tremonti has helped to define modern rock for the last two decades with his axwork. On his long awaited debut solo album, his playing is as epic as ever but way heavier. From the opening number, “Leave It Alone,” to the blistering title track, the album eschews the tepid ballads for rough-edged riffs and rousing choruses. Most impressive is the fact that those choruses and all the lead vocals, in fact, are delivered by Tremonti, who proves to be a surprisingly powerful singer. All I Was reveals the remarkable depth of talent behind one of hard rock’s core guitarists.
