    Default Favorite lesser known song from Balance?

    What is your favorite of the tracks that weren't played on the radio at all (excluding the instrumentals?)

    Aftershock and Feelin are both awesome tracks from Balance. The rage of Aftershock foreshadows the issues within the band. Feelin is supposed to be about growing up, but twenty years later I can still relate....

    Crossing Over should have made the cut on Balance over several songs that were chosen.

    No question.

    CO is actually one of my very favorite Alex showcase tracks.

    One of the first presents I got from my then girl friend was the Japan release of Balance with Crossing Over as the bonus track. That really impressed me: Next week, we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of our relationship (and our 15th wedding anniversary...).

    Only half the drums heard are from Alex. The electronic drums you here in one of the speakers were recorded by Eddie.
    A chilling and down-right awesome song!

    Balance is awesome.

    It has its faults but I put Seventh Seal, Donít Tell Me & Aftershock in my top 15.

    No idea what was played on the radio from it.

    That being said, The Seventh Seal, Aftershock & Feelin' are the best songs on the album with lyrics.
