Michelle's Review:
5 out of 5 stars on July 5, 2000

This may be my 3rd fav VH album. I liked this one much better then 5150, even though many VH fans wouldn't agree with me. I am not the type of person who cares much how wonderful lyrics are, I don't really pay that much attention to them to be honest. Sammy could sing " I love peanut butter sandwiches, they make me feel full!" and I wouldn't care. I like VH for Ed, and that's really the whole thing right there. This album easily has some of his best playing on it, and has some of Al's best drumming since 1984. This album also has one of the few exceptions to the VH ballad rule for me, I really like "When it's love' and that hasn't really changed over the years. I don't know what it is, but "I'll Wait" from 1984, and "When it's Love" from OU812 are the 2 ballads that don't bug me to death ;-)
