    Default Least Favorite Song on new album thread...

    Okay, so there's a favorite song thread. I think it's only fair to have a least favorite song thread.

    For me it's kind of hard to choose... I know this won't be a popular statement around these parts right now but there are few borderline turds for me on this record...

    I guess it would have to be a tie between As Is and Honey...doll.

    As Is has some cool riffs, but they should almost be three separate songs. The heavy part, driving groove parts, and goat roper breakdown part. It has cool riffs but the song just sounds disjointed, almost forced.

    Honey...doll has too many effects, plain and simple. Get rid of the stupid Whammy pedal, Ed!!! He really needs to have a gear intervention on this tune in particular.


    Overall, the album is pretty good. I think three things would have made it better as a whole.

    Less time in the studio. Album sounds overproduced in spots and not very organic or natural.

    Less layering of tracks. Almost too much goin' on. Sounds muddy in spots...

    Less is more for the guitar. Get rid of the effects and crunch. Get rid of the Fender pickups in the guitar and the hi gain amps. Go back to a 9 to 11K area sounding PAF and get a Suhr SL68 plexi clone w/built in variac. No more whammy pedal, sustainer, and keep the wah to only a 1/4 of the songs...

    I could go for a large pepperoni pizza right about now. I know this awesome spot right by the water just a few miles from here that makes some of the best pizza ever.

    We really needed a new thread for "The Worst Song" for people to nitpick and bitch? I see it's taking off well. Kudos.

    Tattoo? Big River? You and Your Blues? One of these three. Personally, I think you eliminate these three songs and you have a near perfect album. This is just my opinion folks, I am not trying to get the hackles up on anybody over their favorites.

    This seems akin to singling out a "worst" Victoria's Secret Angel -- I'll just say I won't be kicking any of them outta bed anytime soon.

    It doesn't sound anything like a Hagar record and is miles away from sounding like III, yet... oh Fuck It! I'm making luscious pulled pork, marinated beef enchilada's and chicken tortilla soup for the Super Bowel festivities.

    Wish I had a dollar for every mention Tattoo will get in this thread.
