    Default I admit it: I don't like Humans Being

    I remember the first day they played this song on the radio in 96, the local morning show guys (drew and mike) are pretty big VH fans and one of the interns said "I like it cause it's alot harder than the other stuff they did with sammy". I totally disagree with that, Ed plays like a monster on this but I think a song like The Seventh Seal or Judgement day rocks as hard as this one does song wise.

    I hate the effects on Sammy's voice, don't know if Eddie doubled it himself (which is what it sounds like as I listen to it right now). I love the "Shine on" parts cause it actually sounds like sammy is singing instead of some weird effect.

    Guitar solo (s) are amazing on this but I don't like some of the production on it....the drums sound buried at times (which I thought they finally got past with FUCK, RHRN and Balance).

    I dunno...it's an Eddie shred fest and I guess that's cool for alot of guys but as a song I don't think it's as good as a ton of other stuff they did and I don't get why it is held in such high regards here...I dunno, maybe it's cause this is the song that broke the horses back with sam but I just don't like this song as much as alot of other stuff. The lyrics are not my favorite and people tend to think Sammy was really "on" when they did this song.

    am I the only one?

    I love that song. Easily among my top five favorite Sammy era songs. A major highlight on the 2004 tour.

    Some killer riffage in that song. Impossible to drive under 90 when this is on.

    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.

    Love this track. Love the pattern Alex plays on the Kick during the second half of the second solo section where Ed slowly bends up the neck.

    I do wish the drums had a more "BALANCE" sound though.

    Ed's delay setting on this has always been my fav.

    Also think Gary did a great job live on it during the III tour.

    That is the only part of the song I DON'T like.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I can see where the opportunity to hear it live for the first time was a highpoint, especially when the bar was pretty low.

    Crikey - you really are "bad to the bone"!

    It's an amazing song. The solos are truly phenomenal - anyone who says EVH can't / doesn't play with feeling should take a listen to this track and then try to deny that his playing doesn't make the hairs on the back of their neck stand up.

    Plus, (and I know that this isn't strictly relevant), the video with them all dressed in black (mourning the 'death' of the Sam-led band!?) and Ed looking bloody mean is great viewing.
