I love how suddenly theres such a lack of talk about Van Halens new album? People get bored of it quickly? lol
I still like listening to it. I would say its solid but flawed.
I would have loved to see them in their early days, problem is I wasn't born until 2 years after DLR first era of albums ended with 1984.
I usually never tire of an album...not when it's top quality or has sentimental value.
I've only played the new VH twice...there is simply not enough time in a day to get to everything anymore and it's a good record.
But...considering I just bought a brand new Audiophile Vinyl copy of VH's debut I would reach for it rather than any other album of their's for a while, and am ordering VH II as well. Those two are my personal favorite albums, and it's going to be great having the records again.
As far as the VH chatter goes, it hasn't died out completely just yet, and if nothing else Sammy Hagar will continue to offer his thoughts on anything to do with the band.
