I love this record and my favorite track would be


I skydived over Monterey Bay and just before I made the jump I handed the lady this song and told her to make sure it gets on my personal video!

It's a toss up between, "JUST LIKE PARADISE", and "STAND UP".

"Hina" and "Damn Good"...

Would love to hear the original less-mixed demos Billy Sheehan or Steve Vai mentioned in some interview...

Dams Good ...is # 1 ............ HELL YEAH

I listened to "Skyscraper" at least once and I still can't seem to understand it very well. "Hot Dog and a shake" is my favorite somg on that album. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a pretty good album. But it's not as good as YFLM.

Damn Good and Hina, again, depends on my mood.

YFLM is a better album than this, you're right.

"Just like paradise"

Sure it`s pop music, but it sounds good.

hina great song

For me, it'd have to be Knucklebones. It was the very first DLR song I heard, from when a friend lent me the cassette of the album. That hooked me totally, along with the title track and Damn Good.

I have no clue as to why so many people knock this album. It has some really great stuff!

Just Like Paradise :)

I don't know why but I really like "Hina". It is a cool song even though I've no idea what a Hina is.

Damn Good....great accoustic track from Skyscraper with great vocals from Dave & highly underrated for some reason.

02-25-2004, 09:23 AM
definitely hina, they started both concerts i saw with knucklebones, and did not play hina,
but it's my fave song on the album. (two fools a minute has some of steve's best playing though)

Damn Good.

And I would love to hear the long rumored "original mix" of the album. Billy Sheehan should put it up over at STG :D

02-29-2004, 02:16 AM
Damn Good is damn good.

Forget the folks that claim it's sappy...my fave off of this disc is DAMN GOOD, damn it!!


03-20-2004, 01:28 PM
Damn Good and Hina are my favourites.

I too would be interested in hearing the more 'bare-bones' mixes Sheehan has mentioned in interviews. In his Sludge 20 Q's he said he might put them up on his own site.

Don't be afraid of TwoFools honey.

I guess this thread is a good representation of something the army has over DDLR. If this thread was started at DDLR it would have been 3 post of songs, and 40 posts of how shitty Skyscraper was.
