    Default BALANCE released on this date in 1995

    http://www.vhnd.com/balance/

    I was a junior in high school when this album was released. On lunch break a large crew of stoned teenagers hit the local Best Buy and bought it.

    At the time it was my favorite VH album. I saw 5 shows on that tour and was excited to watch the band evolving into the 90s. As 24 years have passed its ranking falls into my least fave of the Hagar years.

    The album went double platinum in record time but then stalled after that proving VH had a massive built in audience but they were up against a very different musical landscape as grunge was in favor. Still their tour was the 5th highest grossing of 1995.

    VH should have issued heavier hitting singles off of this album. Not sure who made the decision to release the ballads but in hindsight they should’ve pushed Seventh Seal and Aftershock.

    Anyways cheers to a great album and one that made a huge impact on me. IMO, the last great VH album.

    Enjoy this clip. Eddie’s tone is fucking nasty.
