I'll always like this album. Bought it the first day it came out. Took it home and put it on, wasn't what i expected. Took a few listens to really get into it, especially the 2nd half but i think songs like WITHOUT YOU, FIRE IN THE HOLE, ONE I WANT and ONCE are really good VH songs. I probably listen to this album more than BALANCE or OU812 now. I'd still say WITHOUT YOU is one of the best VH songs, at least from the 90s. Seen VH for the first time on this tour and it was great. Didn't matter to me that it wasn't Roth or Hagar plus i was a Cherone fan anyway. I'll always have a soft spot for the album.
P.S i think VH3 is very close sounding (music) to the 2 new tracks that were on Best of Volume 1.....who's to say that VH3 would have been THAT different had it been Roth or Hagar on vocals? Also, I've spoke to VH fans who have all said that the VH3 tour was one of the best VH tours ever, at least in regards to Eddie's playing and the setlists. Cheers.
