    Have you realized that the last four new songs released have all been pretty stellar? Me wise Magic, CGTSNM, Humans Being, Respect the wind.....wow. Thats a pretty nice string. They were on a serious roll with those man, I sure wish we knew what was to follow. Now ed says they have two or three albums worth of material? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] Could it all possibly carry the same energy as these tunes?! Its redundant I know, but what a damn shame they werent able to ride the surf of their own creativety during the era when these songs were written. Shit. Each album has a certain flavor to it. I think given the tone of these songs, the next one (whether with Sam or Dave) would have been pretty...should I say it? "RAD" [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    No kidding.

    They were on a TEAR.

    I bet you the tension just helped to elevate their level of playing. We know how Ed plays when he's pissed...see Fair Warning for an example...

    well, when ed gets pissed, then good music happens. but, is it worth it? you know, i think the greatest album ever made was van halen I, and they were having a blast. is it worth the tension and animosity between members to have an amazing album only to see them break up again a year or two later?
    those songs were all amazing, and they had a lot of feel to them. i look forward to songs like that in the future, but not if the lifespan of the band is compromised. although, an album like that would be better than none at all...
    so, in conclusion, i don't really know where i am headed with my point. i'll shut up now. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    lol! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    From a fan standpoint, I'm more likely to say "you dont like him? He dont like you? Who fuckin cares! Make good rock!"

    Yeah, they do better when they are tense. I'd rather have two albums with music like the last four songs than 4 like OU812 or Diver down. And I dont give a shit if they get along or not anymore. I'd love to see it last and all, but, I'd rather have one very serious piece of music than two that are mediocre. Quality, not quantity. Whatever it takes. I dont wish any ill will to anybody, but if that really does make ed go to a place where the his music is that much better, I sure wish he would bite the bullet one last time, get pissed, make great stuff and hang it up. At least it would rock, and thats what they have always done best. They would be bitter at the time, but later bask in the glory and all our money. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    The last four? They would be Year To The Day, Primary, Ballot or the Bullet, and How Many Say I. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yeah, if you omit the entire VH3 album, then the last four songs they've recorded are awesome. I wish they could have done at least one more studio album with either Sammy or Dave after that.

    I bet if Eddie reads the posts from here and the Pleasure Dome, he could write about a box set full of killer tunes. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    You gotta love George Carlin!!!


    As for the 4 tunes, I totally agree with you. I was very excited about the direction the band was heading into musically. Then 3 came along, not that I hate 3 but it wasn't as good as those 4 tunes.

    Oh well.............
