    Default VH 3

    A few days ago as I was downloading some VH tunes on Limewire I came across some songs from the VH 3 album. I was one who 10 years ago when it came out did not like the album at all. At the time it sounded dis-jointed and I guess for it to be Van Halen for me it had to have Roth or Hagar singing on it. I put that CD away and havent listened to any of the songs for the past decade. I downloaded the folowing songs off limewire: Dirty Water Dog, The one I want, Fire in the hole and without you. 10 years removed and I am actually enjoying each of these songs, its weird because I have the "hooks" from each song playing through my head while I am at work today. I am actually amazed at how good the songs sound and although I understand the reasoning behind why that incarnation of Van Halen couldn't work I still think it is some quality music. This from someone that never thought he would say anything positive about that album. Some damn fine tunes on there. Anyone with a similar experience? Ed must have been a bit ahead of the times because 10 years later those 4 songs in particular sound better than ever!

    Insert appropriate avatar here, please.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    I can see you're not here all that much so I won't rail on you for this thread, but it has been discussed several times over and as recently as a couple of weeks ago. Here's the most recent thread with a lot of opinions.

    Dave Roth, do yourself a favor and download "year to the day" and maybe also "From afar".
    IMO, YTTD is the best song on the disc and a real gem. I just don't like the production of it, but it's en epic tune.
    "From afar" is IMO the most modern sounding VH ever. Dark vibe like humans being and such.

    It sucked then, it sucks now, and it will forever suck. Of course just my opinion.

    I only like one song and it is only on the Japanese import, "That's Why I Love You." I actually love that song, but the rest is like a cat in a blender, I cannot get past Gary's vocals.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!

    I've always liked III since I bought it the day it came out. I remember recording the 10 spot on MTV when they went out on tour in '98. Now, a decade later and having a few boots from this tour makes me love it more. "A Year to the Day" with EVH guitar solo mixed in there is awesome as is "One I Want" I've always loved OIW. "Primary" is a nice track but I'm still mixed on "How Many Say I".
