    Love them both, but Unchained is KING, just like EDWARD.

    Two of Eddie's all-time greatest riffs. Too close to call.

    For me, both are equally essential & have the two coolest intros of all time.

    But i had to go with the very first one: ATBL
    Graver, Walking Ed, refugee from CVH & proud tone chaser...

    Unchained is the most beloved tune on this website, but for me, it's no higher than #3 on Fair Warning, behind Hear About It Later and Mean Street.

    Unchained for the tempo ! you can do it fast (like in 1984) you can't do this with ATBL it's the same tempo in 1978 or 2015 ! but i love the 2 songs .. unchained was a great opener ! love the two breaks too but more surprises with Unchained !

    It’s not even that high for me. STIL, PCTS, DM, HAIL, and MS all vastly superior tracks.

    I get why people love Unchained so much. When FW hit in 1981, my friends and I would crank up Unchained and we had simply never heard anything like those crunchy suspended chords along with that dropped D tuning. Epic.

    Hear About It Later is, IMO, VH's most majestic tune. Just a brilliant piece of music with a lot more going on than Unchained. Same with Mean Street. Just a more complete song.

    If there’s a better quad of VH tracks on one album than HAIL, MS, DM, and PCTS, I dunno what it is.
