    Yes, I've decided to throw some love out to VH1988 and RRvh1, our two most ardent supporters of the Sammy era.

    Voted for FUCK although lately I love them all equally and have been listening to Balance.

    5150 usually wins these polls.

    Occasionally FUCK puts up a battle.

    The most common rankings I’ve seen are

    5150
    FUCK
    OU812
    Balance

    Although there are a lot of OU812 fans that post here.

    OU812 is my favorite but 5150 is probably the best. Base on my preference, I'd go:

    OU812
    5150
    FUCK
    Balance

    Over the last 25 years are so, Balance's stock has gone up and FUCK down. In retrospect that era really would have benefited another studio album between FUCK and Balance instead of the live album.

    OU812. My favorite tones from both Ed and Al during that era, and the best collection of tunes. One of the band's most eclectic albums.

    Hard to top the material on 5150, although I like the others as much as I do it, when the mood hits. Great material on all their efforts in the main Sammy era. Each record means a lot to me personally, and was important in my life.

    This contrasts with the Roth era -for ME - as I was only onboard when 1984 was released. I got into the back catalog later...

    Sammy era?
    5150/OU812/FUCK/RHRN are interchangeable depending on my mood. I like about 3/4 of Balance.

    like the songs on the first two records more, like the production on the last two more. Gun to my head, 5150.

    Balance is the album that got me into the band, even though, in Kindergarten, my first 45 was Jump.

    It is the one that will always hold a special place in my heart. Don't Tell Me just grabbed me and shook me one morning before school, watching MTV and eating breakfast.
