    Default Almost enough for a new album

    hey all,

    First post and new to the BEST VAN HALEN SIGHT on the net. I've checked out quite a few others and this one rocks. The worst has to be the the official van halen sight. Anyhow, I first started browsing this sight to check out concert reviews during the tour and have been coming back and reading eversince.

    So here's my topic. Between the two best of CD's there are six new(old) songs:

    Humans Being
    Can't get this stuff
    Me wise magic
    I'ts about time
    Up for breakfast
    Learning to see

    These six songs could have very well been on an album together(assuming one singer) and really show the new direction and songwriting style that Eddie was and still is taking. I say Eddie cause he rights all the damn tunes. My question is could you see all these songs on one album and which of these is your favorite and why? Mine right now has to be It's about time because that intro riff is wicked and this song live on the tour was probably the tightest one IMO.

    I appoligize if this has been discussed, i'm just a rookie here

    the differences between hagar and roth are just to extreme for me to say they could all be on one album, though i know what you mean, and id probaly say me wise magic is my fav. cuz the back up vocals are freakin sweet

    "Humans Being"

    Hands down the best Halen song of the last ten years.

    Humans Being is my favorite song with Sammy on vocals. But I also like can't get this stuff no more and want it played at my funeral

    You could also include Respect The Wind. That was done around the same time as Humans Being. Of all those songs, I'd say Humans Being is my favorite followed by Learning To See and Me Wise Magic.

    i'd have to say that my ulitmate fav of those tunes is me wise magic.(even though i like sammy better)I like the presolo where DDL is doin that ZEN talk and then ed plays that kick ass solo.

    But the more i listen to It's about time the more i dig it. when i first heard it, the course really turned me off but it grew on me. now i listen to that song the most right now, reasonably loud of course.

    Calling it as I view it... half an album at best... half and half on the singers... and pretty much all half assed from one point or another based on how/when this material was laid out and recorded.

    For what was the creative output for this band in either era... those 6 songs aren't shit to brag about for a decade's worth of time excluding III which is almost like it never happened... Pretty lackluster given what this band used to have in em...

    I do agree that six songs in a decade is nothing to brag about, considering EDDy keeps saying he's a musician and not a rock star. Hey ed- put out some cello music with electric distorted tuba and i'll buy it.

    I do Think that the three new tunes Got pushed out a bit too quick so they could go out on tour, so they lack some polish. But, IAT and Learning to See have two of the heaviest riff's i've heard eddy come up with. Also the amount of emotion that he's putting into his solo's now is unbelievable (including the solo's off- III)
