Now this episode we got a lot to get into, but we aretalking about. Agthis is a great song, we're talkingabout silent lucidity from Queen's Rike, which was off ther, album empire, whichcame out in one thousand nine hundred and ninety and Guitarist Kris Ta Garmowrote this song and if you don't know who Christa Garma is he also touredwith Jerry Cantrell from alison chains fame during hi, housand, nine hundredand ninety eight Solo tour and also...

...helped contribute to can trills, twothousand and two album degradation trip. Also he cofound that a supergroupcalled spies for Darwin. Have you ever heard of them Dave smiles for Darwin? Ihave not. They were. I didn't know about them until maybe acouple years ago, but basically it was a. They only had like a small EP, maybelike six or so songs on there, and that was it, but I checked them out and they that group comprised of members fromQueens right right, Ey had Chris Ta Garmo in there you had some othermembers from allison chains and sponge. You had Sean Kinny and Mike Inez fromallison chains, the drummer and Bass player and Veni Zambrosky, the singerfrom sponge. So neat little super group that I didn'tknow about. It's, like I said until a couple of years ago, wasn't bad thelittle ep they had out. It was okay, okay, cool, not that not the best supergroup out there, but yeah spies for Darwin. I just found that to be like aninteresting combination because they had members from a couple bands that II like all of them, so you haven't fully sold me on them. I mean you're,like yeah they're a little bit of a super group, they're, okay, but they're.No! Yes, you know yeah, I mean they're, not velvet, revolver or audioslave. Youknow they're not right they're, not at that level at all, but it was. It wasokay, I'm not really selling them, because I don't think it was thatfantastic, but well, you've only been talking about it for ten friggingminutes. Already it's worth checking out just to just to say: Hey, I checkthem out. It's also a good triviate because, like nobody knows about that,so there he go right. Dropping information but yeah, so silent,Lucidity Dav. What are some of your memories of this song? I had a friendwell, I still have him as a friend, but you know how life goes. You don't getto see people from your youth as much as you would like to, but we're in a pandemic.Dad We don't see anybody I don't this is this. has nothing to do with thepandemic? Has Everything to do with my personality understand, but he was amassive queen's right fan anywhere. We went road trips hanging out in hisapartment, whatever the case may be, queen's riht was always blasting and Icouldn't say I was the biggest queen's right fan at the time, but I was alwaysexposed to them. I'm glad you're exposed to them and not exposingyourself in other ways that happened that, but, while listen to Queens Rickwell, listen, the police records are sealed. Oh Okay and I'm not crackingthose bad boys open for anybody, so I carry on my friend. You can keepdigging but you're in the wrong hole. Keep you keep that locked up but yeah.I remember this song came out. You know I remember shadow Stevens pimping thisout on American top. Forty SI remember the CIDYOSHOKNOW, I remember the videoand then I got away from it for a little bit, but then, when I became adad like I randomly listen to it again and it kind of hit me in another wayand we'll get into that with the lyrics. But I mean I've been listening to thesong for the better part of thirty years now, vhone actually ranked this as the twenty...

...first best power, Ballad Da. I'm no askYou: What do you think the number one power ballad was per vh one? Oh andthat's- and this is from like the S to I'm sorry s twosands twenty ten wow- II don't know if I even want to take a stab at that. I was goingto kind ofthink where I was going to try to talk about at one point during the show. SoI guess TIR's no better time than now how the early s had some power ballarsfrom hard rock. I artists that did very well whether it was Mama, I'm cominghome from Ozzy Osborne and Walways, the one from metallic at the time. Nothingelse matters. Nothing else matters you know in these were huge massive hitsand I almost want to say nothing else,matters because Metallica, as probably or as one of the biggest music artistof all time. But really that's just a you know: flailing around wild guest. So why don't you tell meand our listeners? What did the Almighty vh one designate? is theirnumber one ballad power ballad of all time I was surprised, but number onewas open arms by journey really yeah. I don't don't know how I feel about that.But I don't know I don't know either. Actually you know it's one of thosethings where I kind of when you said it was ballad, though right, not justpower ballads. I think it was power balads because for me journey like alot of the catalogue is Power Ballads and yeah, the it not like they werelike heavy or anything like that. NOIT's not like a power ballad to me islike when the band is like heavier ish and then they kind of you know whatlet's go soft for a little bit. Yeah. That's right, yeah, it's kind of likeSayin, oh well, what's the best Yat rock song of all time, and then youknow maybe sweet freedom well hold on. We might talk about them in the foet,we'll talk about that song in the future was going to say it's just likesaying Christopher Cross. No, yes, ever every song, he did. You know what Imean right, but but you get I' saying where I want. If you were, if I wasgoing to make the list, it would have to be kind of like deviating from theirmaterial a little bit and exploring different avenues. And then I go okay.That was unique. That was special because it's not what they wouldordinarily do it's not what made them or what their sound is primarily aboutyeah, I'm a different kind of cat. You know so, who knows, thit's? Why? No oneasked me to make any lists. They don't want me to do that. That's iyt! Youknow what I know. I agree with you because, as I was looking over thatlist, I was like e. So they did so they did not have sygon kicks. Love is onthe way on there in the top twenty five I feel like that should have been more than words by extreme, not onthere, which I'm calling bs they had, and this is why I'm kind of like upsetabout they had only God knows why by Kidrock at nineteen, so I feel likethis list was horseshit to begin with, but wack Yuck yeah anyway. Some ofthose bands- I was talking about right...

...like extreme and Sigo, kick just likeQueens rike. A lot of people's first taste of them was, you know, probablydude at Power Ballat that made its way to the mainstream right. But if youlisten to all those bands, they're, not soft rock bands at all, you know if youlisten to the lizard from Sigon kick, which is what love s on the way is offof that. A that album's awesome by the way- and it is heavy lovees on the way- is notrepresentative of what they do. Maybe we can talk about that song on you knowa future episode of songs gone wrong, but more than words same thing. Weshould also talk about that song, but you know same thing. You know extremeis a little bit of a heavier group and that song is not representative of whatwe do. I think we should do like power. We shall like power ballad week, ontheits kind of like shark week but power ballad week. I feel like we should dothat. I would not be opposed to that. The powergralid power hour lasting afull twent, four, seven het. You say I yes just lets. WHATL UST crank outepisodes all day if Lenny can make some t shirts along with those stickers, andwe can have like a whole thing going on a whole event, maybe will be as big asshark week. Eventually, you never know, probably bigger. I think people likepower balls more than sharks. I don't know, I don't know, I think so anyway, yea something Wright. You havemore than words by extreme. You know that's the heavy band and you haveQueens rike here silenecidity and then you listen to empire you're like gothese guys pretty much rock. You know. socidity is not you know,representative of their overall Catalogu, but it does show what theycan do, but sit lucidity peaked at number: Nine on the US billboard, hotone hundred back in June, O Ne Thousand Nine hundred and ninety one and overallsilence siityh's been streamed over thirty six million times on spotify andQueens reck has over eight hundred and fifty housand monthly listeners, sodigging into the chart a little bit for that particular week back in June ofninety one, the top five had these jams there number one was. I don't want tocry by Mari. Carry Two was more than words by extreme, so another powerballad made the the hotwone hundred. At that same time, three was I want to sexyou up by color me bed. We are absolutely going to talk about that.Song on this show for is loves a wonderful, a wonderful thing by MichaelBowen and five is Rushrush by Paula, Abduel and then round Hiy got the topten number six. was I like the way, the kissing game by high five? I rememberthat one number seven was losing my religion by Rem. Eight was touching meon hat long by Kathy, Dennis Nine was the afformentioned silent, lucidity andten was rhythm of my heart by rods, Stewart boy- I I remember that song asThos, probably everybody's mom Luk, some other great tunes on a churt thatweek, where power of love, love Har by Luther Vandross, such a silky, smoothvoice that Luther had twenty one was jor wide by rock set another great Sune.Twenty three was playground by another bad creation. I feel like that is asong gone wrong episode into making...

...twenty nine was right here right now byJesus Jones. Thirty three was voices that care by voices that care. Youremember that one no ar for me will you. I think it's like voices that care arecrying out loud. That doesn't do much for me without the whole, you knowrhythm to it so anyway, another great ballad was I'll. Never let you go bySteelhart at thirty nine that was like some solid left over es cheese, AI hearit but yeah. When you look at it right there is, you know, couple ballats, youknow power ballads in there Nin the top forty and there's two ofthem in the top ten. So I feel like that's a I feel like there's a lot ofgood songs on that hot one hundred list, but overall there's definitely somesome similarities. There sure yeah, like I said this song is off the albumempire and I think it's one of the slower songs right on the album.Overall, I think the album's pretty damn good yeah. I think we can bothagree at slaps. Yes, I mean empire is a great song. What's Tho on jets, Jet City woman,Great Song, Great Song, there's a lot of good songs, n their empires,fantastic, but wh. What are your thoughts on Yoalbum? Overall, I mean besides the slappiness. Well, the thing is I: Whenyou ask my memories, I told you I had a friend who was a massive fan of Queensrike yeah. It is one of those things where just by proximity I had to listento him. I never needed to own an album, because any time I was hanging out withthis guy, there were always on now the album itself. I think- and this is oneof those testaments to how good it is- has survived the test of time whereinyou can pop it on now, and it sounds even better than it did when itoriginally came out, and one of the main reasons why I bring this up is Ido not like songs that are way too long for their own good. If I look a track- and I see it's like eightminutes long or something I go, Oh God why? Why does anybody need to craft aneight minute, long song unless you're tool or high on drugs seriously? But ifyou listen to toil, you might be both it's fair, very fair, but the finalsong on Empire is called anybody listening and this song comes in atseven minutes and forty two seconds, but you would think when you listen toit. It's too short, because it is just pierce your chest, echo on the drumswhich, for some reason, if we look at our archives of the songs, we've talkedabout anytime there's an echo effect on drums, I'm always in I'm like yeah. Idon't know why it's like I like it. The lyrics are great. The vocals aregreat everything in that song. Just if you wourld t ask me like what is one ofthe best songs everage to end an album anybody listening has to be high upthere for me, So von Don' ow. If you need to make a list on final tracks ona record, I guess you can call me we can work from there or you don't we wecan make a playlist. Oh No, you know.

That's what that's that's my departmentright there, I'm like yeah, but if you plake a playlist of last songs and analbum one of those last songs has to go first and then it loses. Its power getsdeluted Yan. U What if, but what? If? What? If I', just like record myselfjust saying this is the playlist O that way that track goes first and then, butthen it Goessecon, you know any music, a second, it's not it's! not the tdoesn't close the show anymore. I don't know I guess we could look into it, butI'm kind of against it. At least on the surface. Let's talk to lenny about Ot,see what he says. I think Lenny's busy making stickers for those five starreviews. Yeah. We don't really give him. We don't wenly, give him any breaks. Doit. We should probably let them onf for Christmas Day slave labor, yeah yeah,I'm not agree. I mean that that album isis fantastic but lyrically I'll, tellyou what day this is a I feel like this is a doozy here. You know you know meand how I love to dig an alyrics. I feel like this is a good one. Now, I'mgoing to jump ahead a little bit and kind of spoil what the Song Raiderwrote thus about, and that is lucid dreaming so, along with our goodfriends over at creed, this is the Second Song we've actually talked aboutthat deals with lucid dreaming along with hihrer. Now, with that being said,there's a lots o inpack here and also. I think this song is much better thanhigher just to get that out there. Now the song starts off with what seemslike. Maybe a parents going in to check on their child who is having anightmare? You know they start with hush. Don't you cry wipe away the teardump from your eye you're lying safe in bed? It was all a bad dream. Spinningin your head, I feel like I can identify with a lot since our our youngest was like a horriblesleeper for two years. I love her dearly, but for two years it was justlike every night youwould get up like two or three times and then againrecently, actually she's, four now but like over. Like September and October,she was like getting up every night. I don't know why, but, but I feel like this. One kind of helpsme understand like where they're coming from you know, instead of getting angrykind of this song, actually helps kind of keep me calm and help appreciatewhat they're going through and just be empathetic. You know like when I wouldgo in and try to get my youngest back to sleep after they woke up and startcrying. I would just pick them up. Walk around the House for, like thirtyminutes, forty five minutes and and honestly like this song, would kind ofbe playing in my head. You know it's like, I guess, like a good little Lullaby song. You know, and I feel like it's appropriate for that moment and I feellike it's. You know I don't know it's a good tune and I feel like from like aparenting standpoint. The song is very appropriate. Okay. Well, I'm actuallykind of impressed because you know we're aware that you live in a polatialestate and that you have, you know, really big property. So it's amazingthat you carried a child all the way through that you know labyrinth ofyours, that you call a home and some pretty good exercise. I hope you had aplaylist for that acidity, no yeah. I would just likeplay that song in my head and that would be about it but yeah. It's we on see. I would just like, like walk,walk around laps in the circle in our...

...family room. THAT'S PRETTY MUCH! What Iwould do, okay, so get my steps in at three in the morning, but you know sothe song kind of starts off like they're talking about a parent helpingto you know, Soe the child, and then it shufts gears slightly more into thatlucid dreaming. Perhaps that's where Jeff says you know it's aplace where you will learn to face your fears, retrace the years and ride thewhims of your minds commanding in another world. Suddenly you hear andsee this magic new dimension, which that sounds more like Luci dreamingthere, but then the chorus kicks in where it says I'll be watching over you,I'm going to help you see it through. I will protect you in the night. I amsmiling next to you in silent lucidity. That kind of sounds more like a parentwatching over and helping their kids. I feel like there's kind of like a dualtheme here. I guess you coul say stocker could be a crazy person whobroke into your house and is watching you. Sleep could very well be. I don'tthink it's that, but you never know you never know, but my favorite, my favorite line,Intho Song, is where he says. If you open your mind for me, you won't relyon open eyes to see. That's that's such a great line and that line there rightcan be open to even more interpretations. You Know Me, I love,you know over analyzing the shit out of everything, but that could be aboutlucid dreaming, but I feel like there also could be like a religious tone tot a little bit. You know just kind of going off of like faith a little bit,but I think this the way they wrote. It is probably more lucid dreaming. But ifyou didn't know that ahead of time it could be interpreted a couple differentways and then, during this solo, there's this like weird- I don't knowif you could it's tough to make it out, but there's this like weird, almostdistorted voice that says visualize your dream record it in their presenttense, put it into a permanent form. If you persist in your efforts, you canachieve dream control so that I think right there, that leans towards thatlucid dream theme and then, at the end of the song, Jeff Tate who's, the leadsinger for Queensreck, at least at that time sings around trip journey in yourhead master of illusion. Can you realize your dreams alive? You can bethe guide, so I feel like they kind of wrap it up and I feel like that's. Youknow what about the whole hug Ma bit. You idn't even bring that up. What hugdme bit when youere just talking about the the spoken word, part yeah and right atthe end of that you hear the woman come in and say hug me. I thought she wassaying help me. I thought I was Hugg me because I'd rather have a hug than help.I mean. I guess that like three in the morning, you know, if you're having abad dream, I would like a hug too yeah. Well, that always the reason why Ibring that up in particular is because, for me, that's like a throwback tooperation mine crime, one of their previous albums, which was really my think, one of my firstexposures to a concept album which was really cool, because now that kind ofstuff doesn't impress me very much, but when you're younger or you're ateenager, or at least in my case I was reallywild by that, like Oh, my God, each song is intertwined and it workstogether to make a larger story. When...

...normally, you think of songs likelittle individual poems, if you will yeah with each, has like a differenttone or a set to kind of like Hooky wind, maybe to sell a record, but withwith them doing operation Mindcrim they're like no, we ouare going. Wequit this whole thing, mapped out. We've written this Mininovella andwe're putting it in music form and at mean seriously. I thought that wassuper cool yeah. I think that so I think she is saying help me and I thinkthat's from a hellrazor movie. If I'm not mistaken, no is hug me. Okay, I'mgoing to say what I want to say and I'm going to say anyway. I want to say itand right now I'm saying hug because I need one okay, I mean I would giveen toyou, but I'm I'm lad. Ey Lannye yeah tell them to put the sthickers down andgive you hug hug Ma Leonard, maybe have to be formal withhim: Calm, Leonard Leonard Yeah, Onar, the sticker Elf, it's kind of like YeahJeff Tate spelled the Geo ff. I believe I justdid that correctly, but I correct I always thought that was like a funnyway to Spell Jeff. I'm like come on for real. It's like Gioff Goff, just SOMthat F, I knewi so growing up. I was a big hockey fan and I feel like therewere a lot of hockey players that spelled jeff that way like JeffSandrerson, Jeff Court. Now I feel like therew's a couple, a couple jeffs thatSpele it that way. I don't know I got a problem with that. It's like because Iwas that person who called Chada Sade for years. Oh boy, yeah OL boy is rightand then, like I was like yeah saet is okay and the'r like wh the hell youtalking about. I'm like you know, you need me like. The desert misses therain or whatever the hell of the song was and they're like. No like. Nothat's that Shad Day and like wwhet, the Av, the shot where's the shot comeinto it. How does that even you know come on now I hear you, I hear you soyeah fucking Jeff Hate. I will say this, though he's from Germany right. I think.Actually, you know what I believe you might be right, but I haven't discussedthe origins of the Queens Righe and probably since this song came out withthat that good pallamine, okay, so as far as like yeah, where he's from I couldn't saywith with a hundred percent certainty, so I don't want to like mislead peoplefor all. I know I could just say Mars, but I was in a band when I was ateenager and were you in a band at all, I'm Ki, not officially, I ed. I wouldjam a bit with a couple of my friends, usually I'll, just play guitar bymyself. Okay, I sat sounds which sounds Yes, yeah sounds very sad, but we Loikit its fun playing gets are no. No, it is don't get me wrong pe, but thereason why I bring this up drew is because normally bands get together outof locality right. You know somebody went to high school with somebody oyour friends with friends or somebody. Can you imagine the the sheer luck?It's like a lottery ticket because Jeff Tate is an UN fucking believablevocalist Olie is outstanding. Could you...

...believe, or can you imagine ratherstarting a band and someone being like? Oh Yeah, I get a guy who's willing tosing on a few tracks for us se if it works out and they bring over Jeff Hate. You, like I don't know, man dollarsigns would be popping up in your eyeballs like an old es cartoon orsomething you know, yeah we're going to hit the big time with this Guy Garonteed. Well I mean they did. I mean this. This album, I think, was their bestselling album so well. Yeah, again as it should be, is a great record. Oh, itis yeah. I mean when I, when I used to jam with with other kids. His is likeyeah people of marginal talent or even in my case, yeah he's. Okay, he's notGreat Yeah Jeff Fucking, Tate Yeah. Even I I have to swear when I say hisname is that's his middle name. Actually yeah well, Germay is Germanfor incredible because seriously, that's just like I! You would neverwant to stop Jammin. You never want to stop playing with him and your Baunless he's a complete psycle. But even then let it happen you be like be crazy.Jeff sounds like Jof, it's okay, because you sing so good. I don't careit's like dating a really hot chick who just might be nuts e, put up withcertain things, because trethey're gorgeous right yeah. It's I mean myfriends and I used to call it the Randy Moss Syndrome. Ou Know Randy Moss wasyeah. You know terror. You know outside ofthe fields. You know he's always getting into trouble or doing somethingstupid, but the guy was a monster like every single game and he was anabsolute game changer for the Vikings and e, eventually the Patriots, but Imean so you just kind of put up with his bullshit and yeah toral loans likethat kind of player. Yeah, that's exactly what that's exactly whathappened with Jeff Tate. He went from Minnesota and he went to Oakland hekind of sucked, but he he went to New England and he e yeah, and then he hada self. Then he had a really good quarterback yeah yeah there. You gogood old, Jeff Yeah that maybe the second F, an Jeffmeans fucking, so yeah yeah what it is yep get that right.Kito, that's like who was it pea jam the so they were called Mukyblaylock before they became Pearl Jam and they I forget who like the original singer,was, but then they knew somebody from the the Chili peppers and he was like.Oh, I know a guy in San Diego and it woundup being eddy vetter. So thenEddie sent like a demo tape to the guy from the Chili peppers, and then I think it was the the drummer beforeChad Smith, if I'm not mistaken, and so that they he passed that along to theguys from pro jam like yeah. We should probably get them up here and that'sthat yeah but see TAT's it some years later right, Eah, that's cool, don'tget me wrong, but that's not like being in the same town as somebody elseyou're just getting together. Smoking Butts drinking a few beers and hangingout in the garage and then no Jeff, bucking tate shows up it. Thi O I meanthis was yeah, Oh yea. I know this guy...

...in a big band and hes sending the heknows a guy who sending a DA demotape. You know I im saying though I can I getwhen your cou jam was in Seattle, whereas Vedra was in o Rmuky blaock wasin Seattle, yeah and vetera was in San Diago. Well, Queens riht is in fact from Washington.So that's right, there's a little ti rate that we can tie it all together.In a nice little bow yep and come back to reality. Now, that's right, so I'lltell lenny to rap us a bol yep, but yeah I mean basically like Il Sai about before a guitarist.Chris de Garma wrote about that concept and also said you know, basically justopening up the doors to your subconscious, mind and learning how tomass your dreams, and that was in a Crang magazine, Article Back Fr, onethousand nine hundred and ninety, so yeah Luci dreaming is better thanhigher. But that's what siently said it e's allabout M, indeed not as good as getting high, but it's better than higher I've.Never I've never done that, and we hear it songs gone wrong. You know we alwayspass on grass sometimes, and you know, stak lean crack as whack kids come intothe alley. Guys come hang out with day from songs going wrong, yeah you'rehanging out with lenny too long. All right bet he's hanging out with me Sertmy happening poice to do that sound so o voice. Let's carry on Shell Weah, allright Dave. So let's get into our final verdicts here.So Silent Lycididy by Queens right. What do you think? Do you think thissong is a legit hit, or do you think it is a song gone wrong? Okay, fulldisclosure! Here we plan on doing this song on the show I went on a completequeen's right binge. It was the only thing I listened to for like a week anda half straight. I couldn't get enough queen drink and they have some awesomesongs. Some real bangers and this tune power ballad is okay, but it's not something. I wasreally thirsty for when I was chucking down all that Queen's rike. I was likewell yeah. You know, I isn't all right Ditty, but it's not my favorite dity. Ithink. Even on this album itself of empire, there are way better songs. Themajority of songs, I think, are better than silent lucidity. I can see why itdid in fact chart as high as it did. But yet again I mentioned earlier empire is held up incredibly wellreally really well, but does that mean? I still want to hear salent lucidity. Ithink I'd rather hear Jet City woman twenty one times in a row before Ilistened to Salen cidity again. So for that reason, and that reason alone- andhopefully you guys- can all understand my logic- I'm terrible explainingmyself half the time. So hopefully you can pick up my vibes, but I'm going tolean song going wrong. How dare you yeah,I'm filthy ANII, see what you're saying...

...okay good. At least somebody does I'mall right, so I kind of feel thesame way. But let me let me dig into this here so right. When we do the showwe try to keep nostalgia out of our rulings right. You know we try to justtalk about the proper merits of a song, but there are a few songs where that'sreally tough to separate, then the stalger from you know the goodqualities of the song, and I feel like silent hecidity for me, is one of thosesongs. I do think it's a good song on its own and yes, maybe my verdict mightbe clouded ever so slightly by my own nostalgia here, but I still think it'sstill a good song and a legit hit on its own now. Is it my favorite song oftheirs kind of a close tie? I like real world, is this their best song? I wouldnot say it is, I think, real Worldis, actually a better song which is offtheir album promise, land and also on the last action. Her O soundtrack,amazing soundtrack, but that's a great song also empire, like the song itself,is a great song. I think overall, that's a better songthan Silenc city, but I think sount city itself is Great.Musically lyrically, its well written, makes you think a little BITT's goodstuff. So I'm goingto rule that this is an absolute legit hit yeah. You knowthat means we got ta turn to the John K public. We sure do we sure do so. Let'ssee what the fans have to say about silent lucidity from Queens rike all right. We have the fan Vo Dave,okay and eighty one percent. The overwhelming majority here saidthat this song is a legit hit, Hey I'm down for that,that's cool yeah, so we did get some good feedback to. We Have Ryan Bome,who goes by at Ryn. Bome, said one of the Best Rock Ballas ever written. Ican. I can agree with that Irish Keith at Tisme Self, you knowsaid. I love that song so much that I went out and bought the album, but thenthought the album was other shight. I returned the album, even though I stilllove that song. I've heard it too often now and delete it from one of myplaylists. Still it's a legit hite. So, okay, I feel like he was very angryyeah. I can't agree with them on the album. I think that's one of thereasons why I said it was a song gun wrong because I think there ase so manybetter songs on empire than this one, so we're all entitled to our ownopinions. Yeah now I mean I feel like Keith is right where hesays, like he's heard it too often now I feel like yes, Thi Song did get quitea fair amount of bairplay. Also like the video on MTV and vh, one wasconstantly on yeah, but yeah. What can you do? Yep Tom Won Gia A. I am PoliNike said so glad you asked. I was a huge fanthrough the s and introduced them to so many friends, but that album and songreally turned me off their music had a...

...certain intensity and urgency in the esthat was lost after mind crime they changed, or maybe I did fair assessment. Okay. I appreciatethat SOM JED Shaefer at streets, a Jed, said if for no other reason you got torespect the band that, during the hair metal era, had the balls to do a powerballot about lucid dreaming, so yeah T's. It's a good point, and last I haveTim Kenzell at Seventeen Candle said wow this song fitchor criteria alregdy,it's legit, why it's a great song! They did capitalize on the hardrock formula,but it's not a sappy ballad. On the other hand, I rarely want to hear itanymore. I've used it as a bathroom break song five times since twothousand and fourteen still solid, okay, now yeah all right, you know, Idon't know, I get it its one of those things too. When you think about power, batls and stuff, this songdoesn't have to do with romance correct and usually that that's recipe. The thing is with Creans rike.A lot of their songs are about that and they're heavy or they're harder. So youknow it's one of those one of those thingswhere I just I don't know man Great Song, just not my song. That's fair. Ifeel, like I woul keep defending myself, something. No Hey man. I don't knowwhat I'm doing here. It's all right, but that's pretty much it anything else.You want to add yeah, I'm going to. Actually I want to cite a better songoff the album and say to all the fans out there. First off.
