    Like em both, but I'll go with FITH. Like the lyrics, with the Biblical references sprinkled throughout, and that outro is so heavy and mean sounding.

    To be fair, I really like where they were going with the outro on DWD, too, but just as it was starting to get good it fades out.

    Dirty Water Dog. Kinda of a unique song in the catalog. Love Ed's guitar sound on this. Something different.
    Alex is strong on this, too. Granted, production doesn't help, but it's great beat with some really cool fills.
    Love the end. They shoulda dragged that out a little more. Cool jam.

    Agree with everything you said. I liked Ed's use of the flanger on this tune too, along with his catcall whistles towards the end. Was he using a slide to do those? Sounds like it to me.

    Yep, this was definitely a tune where it was Alex on the drums. I still feel like From Afar and Josephina were possibly Ed playing the drums. Just seemed so rudimentary of playing on those to be Al, but DWD definitely has Al's feel and style.

    LOL. Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if Ed was drumming on some stuff. Like you said, pretty basic in some spots.
    But, DWD is anything but...Some of those fills don't sound easy. And they are really creative. Some thought went into them.
    Not too mention, it's his style.

    "Fire" is an auto-pilot rocker type, to my ears.
    Not a great song by any stretch.

    I think DWD had something more clever going on, though it was somewhat half baked.

    I dont think so. He does push fhe broom on DWD lol.

    Unless somebody tied directly to the band and was involved with the recording of that album comes out and says so, it's really all just speculation.

    IMO Al played on One I Want, Josephina, Year to the day and Ballot. IMO he did NOT play on Without You, From Afar, DWD, FITH. My 2 cents

    Listen to the drums closely on DWD JD. I think they sound way too sloppy for it to be Al. The fills just do not sound like Al to me. They're slightly off time and sound like someone who is proficient at drumming, but not a master like Al is.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    You are right Get The Show On The Road. Some of the fills are not Al. The whole feel isn't Al.
