    Default I'm shocked Balance was released 19 years ago

    so I'm listening to the ole IPOD and Don't Tell Me comes on...I think to myself "I wonder what the date was that this hit radio" cause I remember hearing it in the morning it was released and also I remember it was January.

    I looked it up and Balance was released on January 24 1995.

    I honestly can't believe it's been almost 20 years.

    Song still sounded awesome BTW.

    The years are getting out of hand. I was thinking about this today, in fact. Before I know it, 50 will be knocking on my door. I don't care about superficial things like graying, wrinkles, and a couple of extra pounds, but the window of opportunity and all that hasn't been accomplished. I wasted A LOT of time. Thanks, Balance for reminding me of that....

    I remember hearing "Don't Tell Me" from start to finish for the first time on Christmas morning, '94. I had to go to work very early that morning (the only time I've ever worked on Christmas morning), and I was the only one there. So I cranked up the radio, and the song came on almost immediately. I was absolutely blown away by the heaviness of the main riff, the solo, and the lyrics. Easily one of Sam's best vocal performances, ever. I remember being there at work, just totally pumped up at like, 5am.

    It was one of those great VH moments from days gone by.

    They had a "blockbuster music" by my house and you could go in early and listen to 20 second clips of each song. i remember doing that and I was really fired up.

    I got the tape the day it came out at 9 in the morning. They would only let you buy 1 copy-either tape or CD, not both cause they were worried they would sell out.

    I listened to the shit out of that tape for weeks on end.

    After all this time I still listen to the songs all the time. The Seventh Seal is one of my all time favorite tunes. The funny thing about Balance is I love almost all of the songs individually but when you roll them up into an album I don't like them as much. I don't know if that makes sense.

    gonna blast Amsterdam later. I love that song, I don't care how many times I read people rip the lyrics I still love it.

    I'm still shocked and embarrassed that the first few times I heard Don't Tell Me on the radio I thought it was a Candlebox song. I freaked out when it finally hit me who it was.

    I'll be honest, I hated Don't Tell Me when I first heard it. It's grown on me a little, over the years but not much.

    I never disliked it, it just never hit me as VH right off the bat.
