    Which album with Dave is their worst? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    I'll go with Diver Down, on the reason that many of the songs were not theirs. So to me that makes it their weakest effort.

    Diver Down's my favorite album, so I can't pick that. I'll go with Women And Children First.

    Hands down, Diver Down,

    This was a "Dave" album as opposed to an "Eddie" album. Covers, goofy stuff, it smacks of DLR's influence.

    I think Ed has even mentioned that he hated doing those songs, especially the covers.

    Of course, it still has 2 absolute gems--Full Bug and Little Guitars- but overall it's a yawner. [img]smilies/sleep.gif[/img]

    Diver Down is still a great album but I feel it's their weakest with Roth. Too many covers although the originals were good. I don't like Where Have All The Good Times Gone and Happy Trails. Too sappy.

    Yeah, I was gonna say, What the ...?! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] But, who knows. Maybe he's serious. Anyway, I guess my answer would have to be a toss-up between DD and WACF. Although, I really look at them as the "least best". I still love them, I just love all the other ones that much more! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    WACF easy. One or two solid songs with lots of filler in the middle. Loss of Control is probably the most horrid song ever conceived of by Van Halen. Covers or not, Diver Down is at least a solid listen from beginning to end.

    BOV1. They coulda easily missed off most of the second half of that. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Nah, it's gotta be Diver Down, but it's a tight run thing. The covers aren't that bad...

    I dig DD.

    The covers don't bother me today as much as they once did. I take them for what they are. With the exception of "Dancing In The Streets" I think they work. And the original material is cool.

    Having said that, though, I do think DD is the weakest of the first six albums.

    I think it is "Diver Down" but "WACF" is not far behind in my books. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
