    Well it's ten years since carnel knowledge came out and even though I love the tour they did for this album,ten years later this album really does sound like Vh were stuck in a rut at this time musically.

    Poundcake and runaround are fun but the rest of the songs sound a little disjointed to me now.
    Pleasuredome and Dream it's over sound a little bit like 3 or 4 ideas jackhammered together to sound like one,Man on amission and in n out are just lame jams with lame lyrics and maybe top of the world was a bit of a throwaway.
    Look,for anyone else,it's a great album but i just thought that perhaps they were spinning their wheels at this point. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    I loved the HUGE drum sound on this album. Al and Andy Johns really got a great sound out of them.

    As for the songwriting, 'Right Now' and 'Top of the World' are timeless classics. 'Man on a Mission' is probably the worst song they wrote with Sammy.

    I like most of the songs on FUCK but I could do without Spanked, In 'N' Out, and Man On A Mission. I agree that the drum sound is good, you can really hear the difference between OU812's sound and FUCK's sound. Poundcake, Judgement Day, Runaround, The Dream Is Over, Right Now, and Top Of The World are great songs. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    The CD is great. Judgement Day and Right Now are two of my favorites all-time.

    Well that's great!!! Someone's gotta like the song or else it's pointless. If everyone in the world hated this one song, then it would have been a complete waste of time. See, everything makes sense!
