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

I remember when I heard the first sounds of "Don't tell me (what love can do)" coming from the stereo at work. I knew it was VH from the very first couple notes. I liked this album when I finally got it in my hands. "The Seventh Seal', "Amsterdam", "Big Fat Money", "Aftershock", are all great rockers. But the highlight of the album for me is "Baluchitherium" It's an instrumental, and that song just rocks. put on headphones, listen to that song, and espicaly focus on the last minute of it. It's just amazing!. Anyway, again, there are a couple songs here that I can't stand very much as VH songs go. "Can't stop loving you' is one of them. I guess it's just that it seems so destined for top 40 that it's just too glaringly obvious. I'm not an anti-top 40 person, I just hate when VH does it. But then "Feelin'" comes along at the end of the album and makes everything right again. ;-)
