    Unchained & Humans Being are heavy, always a favorite, but my vote for the best goes to The Dream Is Over.

    I've been listening to a lot of VH I here lately, and I love that riff in I'm the One, I've been listening to that song every time I get in my car. Oooh, that Eddie's the man, ain't he?
