    I think this is a great album, but... I really don't understand why it's so many people's favorite. Please tell me why.

    Got me, I think lyrically it was Dave at his peak. A very underrated album.

    Yeah, I agree. Loss of Control & Fools I don't really care for, but oh man, In a Simple Rhyme, Everybody Wants Some & Romeo Delight are incredible. That intro to Romeo Delight, in a word...amazing.

    I like "Fools," but "Loss Of Control" isn't the greatest. The solo is cool though, especially when Eddie kicks the flanger on.

    Dude I just listened to Loss of Control after reading that post, you're right man! That solo wails! Fools still doesn't do anything for me though, the music is cool, it's just the way it's sung or something, I don't know. Maybe it'll grow on me, I just won't skip it as often

    Yeah I always dug that part of "Loss Of Control" even if the song was just so-so. Not too many people I know like "Fools," I'm almost alone on this one.

    Fools is BADASS. The bluesy intro and into that guitar explosion-too cool. Romeo Delight is another personal fave. And the acoustic intro on Take your Whiskey also.

    This is weird cause I've read lots of people saying WACF is #1. I love the guitar work, "In a Simple Ryme" WOW, but #1, I don't know, too each their own, my personal fav is Fair Warning, hands down. It's kinda funny cause for me I see a simalarity between FW and Balance. I think it's that angry edge that FW had, it seem Balance had some of that, as did the twister stuff. I don't know guys, tell me if you guys see it, al le Seventh Seal, Don't tell Me, and especially Feelin.

    The solo to "Loss of Control" rules...period!And The Cradle is still one of the best songs they've ever written with DLR at the helm. Lots of great riffs and ideas on this record. I think it carried over to Fair Warning.

    Take Your Whiskey Home is my favorite from that album. Others I really liked were A Simple Rhyme, Everybody Wants Some and Romeo Delight. It kind of annoys me when Alex uses the intro of Every Wants Some for Panama. Everytime I see it I think alright their going to play EBWS and then it's Panama for the 100th time. If DLR is back at hopefully they will play more songs from Women And Children First.

    Yeh , hain that bit of music at the end of WACF was put with the intention of it being the intro to FW (probably as a song kickoff), it was called 'Growth' or 'tank' depending on who's telling the story.

    Guess once they laid down 'Mean Streets', the intro... Cya growth/tank

    Not the best VH album, but top three. This is just an awesome album. I love Loss of Control, in fact I love every song. It just has a different sound that I react to every time I hear it. Everybody Wants Some is nothing short of a classic song, as is Simple Rhyme. Dave's lyrics are great. Did I mention I love this album?
