    The album does not disappoint; on the contrary, it’s unbelievably good. Sporting sharp vocals, compelling riffs and potent lyrics, this is a stellar release.

    It perfects every element of the band’s sound and ensures everything is top-of-the-line. ... This is the Rolls-Royce of Alter Bridge records, and a high-water mark to which all rock hopefuls should aspire.

    Pawns & Kings is classic Alter Bridge – nice big choruses, intelligent lyrics, rock music meant to be played on big stages – but with their muscle properly tearing through their shirts. And though for longtime fans this shouldn't come as a surprise, the level to which they've dived in here still may do.

    Pawns & Kings adds another reliable and tightly crafted volume to Alter Bridge's robust canon.
