    Default Van Halen Family Albums, Best to Worst

    Yes, I'm bored, waiting for the plumber. So rank 'em in order from Best to Worst, what's your tale? I think this is most of 'em, extended family and otherwise, other than some rarities and imports and guest appearances and such, but I suppose I might have missed a couple. Probably more than a few folks don't have all of these, but take your best guess anyway.

    Well that was interesting, to see all of their work on one page like that. So this is what VS does when he's bored, eh??

    I liked the guitar guy so I left him in!! As you can see, I'm bored too.

    I love II, I really do. It's always been the underdog for me, though. It's probably 'cause I hear DTNA and BG so much on the radio, plus You're No Good rates as among my least favorite VH songs of all time.

    On the other hand, it's got DOA, Bottoms Up, and Women in Love.

    I listened to TOJ exactly once. Waste of 14.99. But then again, I am not by any means a fan of Cherone's body of work, early, mid, or later. Neither am I a huge fan of Roth's solo work for the most part. But yeah, I'll always give the nod to the Diamond over a Mercury pretender, even with a steaming pile of covers like Diamond Dave.

    Hasn`t anyone heard Sammys "Street Machine" and "All Night Long Live" albums? Those albums smoke anything else he`s done IMO!
