    I'd love them to get back together but to record an album rather than a tour. DLR cops a lot of flack for not being up to it live however he still seems to pull it off in the studio with all of the tricks and takes I guess. Get TT back on production and do an album!

    You feel just as strongly about YOUR opinions as I do mine, as do most people on this site.

    And as usual, you take everything I say literally and personally, missing when I'm being intentionally facetious, but whatever, not worth it to continue arguing about something as dumb as you getting irritated with those of us that have the gall to criticize Sam's lyrics.

    I agree VH isn't about lyrics. The songs would great without them. Most hard rock stuff is like I suppose.

    That said, I was singing along, back then, just as much as I was air guitaring and drumming. I love singing along with Drop Dead Legs, Mean Street, Dreams....and a whole bunch of others.
    While the music is king, there is a level of importance to the lyrics. For me, anyway.

    Eyyy, I can't stand Loss of Control either. Great instrumentation ruined by the vocals.

    Source of Infection is similar, but less offensive to me. Instead of effort being put into it for the end product to be annoying (LOC), it's lack of effort caused the lyrics/verse melodies to just be... nothing (SOI).

    Boith SOI and LOC are a waste of great instrumentation. Over time I have been able to listen to LOC more due to the agressiveness. I also prefer the production. SOI to me is such a waste because there wasn't a new VH album coming until 1991. At least when CVH took a chance on something, you had to wait another year for an album. The albums also took probably at most 2-3 months to make outside of 1984. You also had independant voices who for whatever reason thought that LOC should be on there. They likely worked on OU812 for a 6 months to a year. Nobody had the stones to say to the band "ummm what is this POS? You going to put some melody on it? How about some lyrical content?"

    Then you add Apolitical Blues which was another waste of time in the studio. Yeah not on the official release but it shows shows you there was no oversight on that album. Eddie was proven right with the direction of 5150 and was given free reign. Two songs that they obvioulsy spent time on which likely are skipped more than most of their material. I am sure some other songs were left that were better use of their time. That said it was probalby was just a really fun time for the band and they just did what they wanted and it shows.

    Its fine if you like or love either song. I have given each song decades to grow on me and they have not so either its me or the songs are just not up to the same quality of other VH songs

    Many often act like SOI has no lyrics or something. There isn’t much to the verses (which isn’t a bad thing to my ears) but the rest is stellar – great lyrics and incredible vocal performance. To each his own I guess, but to me SOI is great, period.

    Related, the run of AFU - Cabo - SOI is pretty awesome.

    I like both songs. I never thought twice about the lyrics of either song before it came up on this site years and years ago. I still like both.
