    Hey man welcome to the links

    I don't think they will release the album if it sucks.....if they are cool with it, then I will be too no doubt.

    Van Halen has yet to release a flop with Dave, so I'm confident it'll be a kick-ass album! Wouldn't it be a treat if we got something that felt like FW?

    I think it'll be just fine. Hell, we all know about Can't Get This Stuff No More & Me Wise Magic and how Dave's voice wasn't 100%. Dave's voice is fine now - I think we'll be blown away, personally.

    It will be fine. Probobly why it is taking so long, they want it to be perfect for the fans.
    Dont worry, you'll only get gray hair. And you couldnt do anything to make it better anyways so why worry!

    I think with the personalities inside Van Halen, it's much more important that this album do well internally, as opposed to externally.

    What I mean is, the reunion tour is virtually guaranteed to do huge business, so in that sense it's not as important to the outside world if the album sells. It continues to be my opinion that these arenas and/or stadiums they'll play will be filled with people who couldn't care less about VH's current album, and are only there because of yesterday. Van Halen could easily become like the Stones and sell a small amount of records, but still know they can succeed on the road.

    BUT, internally, I think it's vital that this album does well. I don't think Eddie would ever be satisfied knowing his albums (his art in effect) are selling less and less but knowing he can continue to go out live and have Dave's persona and Jump and Hot For Teacher still dragging the fans in. I think he'd rather walk away than face that fate.

    Is there alot riding on this album? Sure for us hardcore bunch there really is. The masses really don't follow Van Halen like we do. Now if "all the parties" that are involved, I'd doubt that they would put out a cd "JUST TO MAKE SOME COIN." You dig? Is Dave gonna regroup, so to speak, and not make a quality album, NO. Would Ed, AL, and Mike just cave in for the hell of it? No!
    I think in their mind ALL the, "Riding on this album" talk, is between them. They will not put out a piece of shit album just to sooth the fans over. Period. If it happens, it will be a masterpiece. Hopefully Good topic mg btw. Out.

    If they are in studio, I think they are trying to hard to make this perfect, I hope that being perfect is no the undoing of it all. I think VH3 and all of its failure hit home to Eddie. I felt that VH3 really took the fans for granted.(shit Madden will think that I'm full of shit with that thought) I hope Eddie and Dave can make it work! I have better things to worry about. I have a baby due on the 25th of Jan. Thats my concern.

    listen....dave can and always will be able to write cool lyrics, its just his personality. ad we all know that no matter how good the lyrics are , without great music to match the lyrics they arent worth shit. ed knows how to make great music and him and dave are a great match and always will be. trust me it will be a huge recording.

    O.k. Glenn "Danger" Mindreader. What am I thinking right now? If you said madden, Valerie, and a box of trojans, you are correct!LOL Anyfuck'nways I really agree with you Glenn. Eddie is gonna want the album to be top notch. Remember back in 1996? Eddie said that in order for us do a tour with Roth they would have to write and record an album first. He doesn't want to JUST rely on the past. He knows he still has the magic in him and he wants everyone else to know. I think this album is gonna be the wake up call for the general public. The album is gonna be fuck'n so great it ain't gonna be funny. We know it's gonna be great. But, nobody else does. And when the suprise announcement comes and we here the first single...HOLY MOther Mary! We are gonna "Dance the Night Away" baby!Peace out.

    VH will be fine no matter what. The album will do good business and the tour will be huge. Shit I'll buy my usual 2 copies, a CD for my stereo and a tape for my vehicle. It should be very interesting to see the sales figures on the new album.
