..... like ADKOT did?
..... or not?
I can definitely say that after spinning it four or five times, it grew on me.
It grew more annoying, unfortunately.
Huge fan here, and love the new CD. (Even Stay Frosty, Tweedbucket!)
Believe it or not I dig some of the tracks on it. (Without you, Fire in the hole, Dirty Water Dog, Josephina) I'd sooner listen to it then Balance actually. The production is horrible though.
Those are the same tracks I like. The production is too hot in spots and makes it hard to listen to. You can hear the clipping at the beginning of "Fire in the Hole" and it's not the gain from the amp!
I noticed this on Balance also. The opening piano on "Not Enough" starts to clip when Eddie hits the keys hard.
Very thankful the new record isn't painful to listen to - song or production wise.
Poor production, but I dig it more than any of the Hagar albums. Then again the VH3 lineup was one of the first concerts I went to.
Minus the out of balance mix, and out of tune vocals, it's actually a pretty good album. I really liked it a lot when it first came out.
Every major band has had a low point. Consider that one, theirs.
It will grow on you, but I dont think it will ever become a favorite mainstay in the car.
This was it for me...
One of the worst albums I ever bought. Bad. Just bad.
i listened to it a while back. i thought it was a decent album.
it needed to be "trimmed" i think.
i read some folks said they rushed the album too much. maybe they needed to work on the material a bit more, hone it. i think this album needed a good producer who said "no" some.
oh well, i think this album will slip into nothingness, if it already hasn't....
I liked VH3 from the start, actually.
III has it's moments, but for the most part it's an embarrassment of a VH album.
ADKOT more than makes up for it though.
The only way that this album could ever grow on me would be like athlete's foot.
I actually like it better than most of the Hagar stuff.
I always really liked this song:
and this one
I tried and tried when III came out but nope no dice.
But I didnt like the Sammy stuff that much either.
It wasnt so much the vocals as much as the riffs and music were Meh too me.
Seemed less inspiring.
