Moderators , please don't close this . I am comparing the 2 because I like both bands and these are there last releases .

First of all , if you have not heard Brave New World , you should not state your opinion until you have heard the album .

I like Van Halen , hell , I love them , but I am not going to be blinded by that to know good music when I hear it .

Van Halen 3 : The lyrics are not strong IMO . The songs are weak . The drums sound thin , you cannnot hear the bass . Where are Mike's background vocals .

Lyrics from 3: "Sweet and Sour , Fillibister ". I'm Just Hound Toothed Hetreosexual". I could go on .

Lyrics from BNW: "Undercover of the veil of your disguise , The men that fear you are the ones you despise"

or "I will hope
My soul will fly
So I will live forever
Heart Will die
Soul will fly
I will live forever

Gary Cherone writes the worse lyrics I have ever heard , his voice sounds silly .

Bruce Dickinson has a great voice and when he sings high , and does often he don't sound like he is trying to take a shit .

Production wise , Brave New World is better . Soundwise it's heavy where as 3 is thin . Kevin Shirley does a great job , I can't say the same for Mike Post .

This is not meant to piss people off , just to state A OPINION . If you disagree with me , BUY BRAVE NEW WORLD and I will care . You can't be the judge of this if you have not heard BNW .

Well we'll leave it and see what happens, seems to me comparisons like this are not terribly useful though, may as well compare spice girls to weird Al.

Untrue Ed... http://208.50.7.95/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif VD3 is no Van HALEN record and you know it! Van HALEN's last record is "1984" ... now however 1984 vs BNW is a much closer match!

I would rather listen to Eddie pissing in a bucket than listen to any Iron Maiden cd. That mystic might and magic rock is as generic as music got in the early 80's... Dio, Priest... how boring. In fact with Maiden around you have to wonder who is the spoof, Spinal Tap or Maiden?? Close call.

Despite its horrible production, lackluster songwriting, and poor vocal performance by Cherone (which I still don't understand considering a work like III Sides to Every Story), I'd still take VH3.

I've actually heard "Brave New World", and to say the least I was very unimpressed. I'm glad that you found a band that you like Ed6150, however I was not impressed by the album at all. I'd compare it (unfavorably) to a shitty Metallica album (RE: Load, ReLoad). I think Dickinson and whoever else writes the lyrics play Dungeons and Dragons a little too much.

They needed three guitar players for it? Whatever.

The rhythm section was pretty good, but c'mon you want to compare whoever those guys are to Mike and Al? I guess that's your prerogative.

As for Gary writing the worst lyrics ever, until you learn how to write a coherent sentence, and learn how to properly spell, I'm not really going to take that seriously.

Are we going back to doing the lame comparisions like we had to suffer through this spring?

Come on, at least try for something interesting that might bring some cool stuff to light. Let's think a little, rather than just wack off about 3.

I don't live at my parents since I was 17, I NEVER took any drugs, I never lived in any house that had an attic, and at 6'3" I can assume I'm a grown up, thank you.

Van HALEN is: DAVE, Eddie, Mike, Alex. End of discussion!

Now, EAT ME AND SMILE!!!

LOL Ed6150. I'm not going to take this thread or you too serious. We are know how you feel about VH3. Next you well be compairing VH3 to a pile of dog crap...and the dog crap will win. Try something like this.

All I'm saying is that it's getting old.

Hey, GGB, chill out with the name-calling, man.

Everyone knows that 1984 wasn't VH's last album.

Calling people "fucks" is NOT the way to go about chilling, you know? http://www.vhforums.com/vhlforum/smilies/cool.gif

Now say you're sorry to Spanish Doctor and toss him a Hot-Pocket. http://www.vhforums.com/vhlforum/smilies/wink.gif

Hey I would love to eat some Hot Pockets with Spanish Doctor! We are all brothers,VH fans. I wasn't talking directly to him,but I hate hearing Van Halen was only six records or 1984 was the last one. Are you a Van Halen fan or someone that kinda likes the band?! Anywho....VH3 stuff is beat to death that is old news lets just wait for the guys to say something. And yeah Spanish Doctor I agree about VH is Dave Ed Al and Mike..it is. I hope you weren't talking to me when you said "Eat Me And Smile"

You can't compare the music, because the styles are so different. I like VH3, but BNW fuckin' rocks, the production is almost perfect and the songs are good.
I liked Gary's lyrics, they were much deeper than Dave's and most of Sammy's. It wasn't only about pussies and human toys (I liked those lyrics too, though http://www.vhforums.com/vhlforum/smilies/biggrin.gif).

I listened to VH3 twice in my life. Hence, I have the right to state my opinion. How many times have you heard BNW ?
