    It's synth heavy, but I love this new cover of Dreams, and the fact that it's different than the original. Such an amazing song.

    Did they slow it down just a bit? I usually don't say this, but I like the slower pace.

    Really like it, great cover of an incredible song.

    Yeah, this is really cool. I like the slower tempo. The sound of the cassette being loaded and the sample of Sammy talking were great extra touches. These are the kind of covers I like. Make it your own while still paying tribute to the original.

    That was horrendous and it just gives more ammo for those who didn't dig that era of VH.

    I think Sammy approves of it. Think Gregg mentioned it on Twitter.

    Is it better? No but I don't think its that bad. Just different Its not nearly as bad as Velvet Revolver doing Runaround. Not as good as VH doing You Really Got Me. Somewhere in the middle :-)

    A cover like this, with a different approach, highlights aspects of VH's songwriting that sometimes get overlooked. Here it's very focused on the melodic aspect, and it really emphasizes that Ed and Sam wrote great melodies for Dreams. Would I want all 10 songs on a VH record to sound like Dreams? Absolutely not. But one or two, really well done, then it's really cool.

    I liked the parts of it when you hear Sammy Hagar talk how Ed inspired him & when the guitar comes in.
