    I dont usually hear this one get much mention from people, BUT, it is definately one of my favorite of Ed's instrumentals.

    Agreed. I actually listen to it quite a lot myself. And let's not forget that this instrumental is not just Ed, but Al and Mikey as well. Maybe that is why I love this instrumental so much--->That it is a whole band effort (minus Sammy)...and not jsut Eddie by himself.

    not that I dislike Eddie's solos, but I think ti was nice to see a full band instrumental.

    I didn't like this song for the longest time. Now I think it's awesome. I'm not sure why they complain that Sammy didn't/couldn't/wouldn't write lyrics for it, because it works really cool as an instrumental. It's great sonically too, which is true of the whole Balance album.

    I think Baluchitherium kicks ass! I would have liked to hear with lyrics, though.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Yeah, Val came up with the name.

    Even though we had a thread on this in 101 once, I still don't know how to pronounce this song title. And without looking at the title, I couldn't spell it properly either.

    BTW, Greg read in a guitar magazine that the working title for Baluchitherium was "Heavy Groove".

    Good heavy song. I wish they would have recorded it with lyrics though.

    I always pronounced it

    "Bal-uh-cheh-theory-um"

    But you know... it took me the longest time to finally hear Sherman in the background. But after I heard it the first time, it always jumps out at me.
