    Default Favorite tune on III

    III has been out for a bit, so I think there has been enough time to have some impressions. Question is, which song stands out the most? The poll only gives 10 options so if you like the bonus track, post your vote in the tread.

    I'm going to say "up next", mostly for the riffs. Nothing too complex but I like it.

    I went with Bigfoot because I love the riff. Yeah it's real basic, but it just sounds good full blast. Others that have seen CF live say it really hits too in concert.

    Just listened it to it again today.

    I am actually starting to think I like their first album better. But I like Dubai Blues and Come Closer the best off the new one.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    I noticed that while the two albums are completely different, they settled/are settling the same way with me. I'm in the stage of craving certain songs, listening to them for a bit and getting stuck on another song for a while. Eventually, I'll really like the entire album, but it's still in the settling stages for me.

    My current tune is Alright Alright, although my favorite on the album still is Bigfoot. It's just full throttle driving fun. (pun slightly intended)

    I can't believe I'm going to say this after all of the bitching I did a few months ago.....

    Big Foot


    Not saying I think it's the best song on the CD but it's the one that I always seem to crank up whenever it comes on. The opening riff is so damn good.
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.
