Ripping CDS 12

Ok now it is so boring at home, just listening to music and guess what – my evening perks up!

  • Maroon – Barenaked Ladies
  • OU812 – Van Halen
  • The State – Nickelback

Three underrated albums, BNL’s hugely successful Stunt was followed by Maroon, which could not measure up to the same success of the former. Mostly due to the fact that it was a sombre record, as keyboardist Kevin Hearn had just come back from dealing with cancer.

Van Halen’s OU812 does have a couple of huge hits but most fans consider it to be a step down from the previous album, 5150, a mega seller.

The State is however a predecessor to three huge sellers – Nickelback had only a minor hit from this album (Leader Of Men) but it was a sign of things to come.
