    simply, which is the best sammy-era album?
    i think it's not that close- i think it's Balance, hands down.
    i've also come to the conclusion that for VH to continue on, and to re-reach it's greatness status-to become current, then edward and sam and alex need to grow up a little, swallow a little pride and get back together.Mike's already there. That's the only way we are going to hear another VH album.
    I always loved Dave-era better, it's true VH.
    Sammy era stands alone for me now, as a seperate band, and of course, i love it. But dave will never work again, and sam is as strong as ever.

    so, i truly believe it's either sammy again, or they are done. I can't see ed going through the mess of another unknown,etc.
    just listen to balance again, right now, and tell me what you think as you're enjoying!

    dear friend,
    from your surname i can understand that you have an italian origin.

    so AMICO MIO, i agree with you, and my best answer to your good comment, i've posted on the
    vh-speculation place.

    so, go there, and you'll find my opinion...that's not only an opinion, just a little bit more.

    go there, and read...

    ...once you'll get clear, then, wait, and see...

    Balance has some good songs but I don't think it is their best with Hagar. Humans Beings after Balance was great and Amsterdam/The Seventh Seal/Don't Tell Me (I even like Take Me Back) is as good as any Van Hagar. Balance is a little weak thru the middle tracks for me to call it on of their best w/ Hagar.

    My opinion of Sammy era VH Cd's start to finish:

    1)5150
    2)F.U.C.K.
    3)RHRN
    4)OU812
    5)Balance

    I love balance too, but it is not my favorite Van Halen album with Sammy. Here is my order,

    1. 5150
    2. Balance
    3. OU812
    4. F.U.C.K.

    And I must have been drinking too much, I can't seem to find my "Balance". My sister must have borrowed it!
    Everyday I break my previous record for consecutive days staying alive.

    Well, I think 5150 is their best album with Hagar. However, Balance is their best sounding album, period. I mean, the music surrounds you as you listen to it, and its so powerful sounding without having to turn it up really loud (although I encourage you to crank it!). I'm not too crazy about some of the songs on it, but that album was produced flawlessly. I wish Bruce Fairbarn (R.I.P) had produced their earlier stuff.

    I don't know, I think it's a tie between 5150 and Balance.

    sonically, i agree, it is by far, their best produced album--it does surround you, etc.
    i m not surprised 5150 is up there, though i havent listened in a while. i better do that.....

    Usually I'd say it's either 5150 or Balance, but I threw on OU812 recently and was surprised at how fresh and good it sounded. I wonder if I'll be able decide by the time this gets over to the Albums Forum?!?

    Nope!!!!! See ya over there. [img]smile.gif[/img]
