    Default AFU (Naturally Wired)

    So I'm on about my 5th listen to this song today and it just flat out rocks. Love the intro, love the drum fills alex is doing for the whole song, lyrics are great, singing is great and I love when Eddie is doing his solo Mike and Al are just holding it down.

    This is one of my top VH songs, I don't know why I just love it. Listen to the drums at about 2:10, Alex is just kicking ass. Great solo, I love how Sammy doubles the intro (didn't even realize he was doing it until I saw the Japan 89 concert). Great outro by Ed....THIS is pure fucking Rock n Roll with the band playing at the top of thier game. I don't care what era you like or don't like you can't deny that they are kicking ass on this song.

    I've got OU812 qued up for the ride home, I love that disk. The production isn't as bad once you crank it...lots of good stuff and very under rated cause most people just focus too much on the production. The only song I don't like is Sucker, the rest are just great.

    I always see source of infection as the band just jamming away and sammy just scatting some lyrics and that's it, nothing more, nothing less. Cabo Wabo is a fantastic song.

    I never liked Apolitical Blues until I heard the original and the VH version played back to back, once I understood what they were going for I have liked it alot...love black and blue.

    I know it's been seen to death, but in case any "Gravers" are still under the delusion that the Sam era was all cheese, I say watch this and be converted.

    The Tokyo concert is the best VH concert I've watched. Great quality and they are just ON.

    It is the first song on my iPod so my stereo plays it almost everytime I crank the car. The drumbeat is great. I've probably heard the first 10 seconds 300 times but the whole song a handful (not big on ou812).

    Was listening to OU812 on the way home yesterday, windows down just blaring and it sounded great. Freakin' Cabo Wabo was on and that song just makes me smile, I think it's right after the solo when sammy sings "you know I want to make love in the sea" and everything is just right fucking on, backing vocals, drum beat, guitar..it's just spectacular. I've honestly listened to AFU about 30 times in the last few days.

    I still remember going to the record store and getting OU812 the day it came out right after school, the guy was amazed that it was selling so fast, he was like "I'm selling like 15-20 copies an hour"....man, that was a great time.
