    Today i re-discovered 5150, the album.

    What a great record, it seems everything perfect on it, from vocals to guitars, from bass to drums..

    What do you think about 5150?

    It's a great album. Six months ago I would have said that Balance was my favorite Sammy era VH album, but I think now it's definately 5150. 5150 the song is one of the best songs that Van Halen did in the Hagar era, as is Summer Nights. I'm not as thrilled with the electronic drums, but it's still a great album.

    yes i agree...
    I listened to it all the day (in office, in car) and it's really great... Balance is a great record too, but 5150 got something more...

    ..so you say they are electronic drums (see my post on VH101)

    5150 and Balance go back and forth as my favorites with Sam. It is a great album. The only songs I skip over are Why Can't This Be Love and Inside. "It's a hot summer night, Edward, come on baby ..."

    5150 represents a big change for Van Halen History...you know...the change Dave to Redrocker...if you compare 1984 vs. 5150 (without you knows something about VH)you say "oh come on,are the same band in both albums?"...
    Anyway It´s an amazing album...excellents songs!!!!
    and good album title!!!

    Great album. Although, I've always had mixed feelings about the electronic drums that Al uses. It was good for the '80s but after hearing the songs live (not counting the 5150 tour), I could do without them. Musically, top to bottom, a solid album. '5150' the song is very underrated. Kicks ass live!

    The song "5150" is the highlight of the entire album for me.

    i think in sound - it's one of the best-- ...hey u know what would be unreal...summer nights was already worked up when sam walked in ..right ?...i wonder if dave put his own thing to summer nights - before he walked out ! if so wouldn't that just blow your mind if they put it on the new album
