    An ode to my favorite band

    Upon first listen to this new collection I am awestruck by the outright ferocity and execution of the playing. How the synapses, particularly when applied to the guitar, are fired simultaneously from both hemispheres of the brain transmitted to the neuromotor receptors and processed through the phalanges to create the ultrasonic, rare harmonic, prestodigitational, pseudo-psychotic magic that is currently being repeated through your mind like a horrible train wreck. Maybe the wreck of '97 or perhaps the disaster of '04? But today dawns anew and with it the freight train that is Van Halen, back on track and steaming ahead with the force of a runaway locomotive. This ain't no love train! No, this one was built for the fans. Especially those who have been waiting, hoping since the last notes from House of Pain drifted into the past and left us at the end of an unfinished track with no way back to the party. But, alas, while we were busy living, raising families and paying bills the track was finished by a child. And so, the band rises from dormancy and finds new life according to the book of Wolfgang 3:16, "That whosoever believeth in Van Halen shall rock again!" Not a messiah but a sort of savior who deserves much of our collective appreciation. So, its time again to climb on board the train that is the 'MIGHTY VAN HALEN' and take at least one more glorious trip around the rock and roll universe, where everything is right once again. And no matter what happens from this point on, a dream has been fulfilled and I will wonder no more. Thank you Van Halen, John Shanks, Ross Hogarth, Interscope Records and, most importantly, God for seeing me through 28 years to witness this miracle! Rock on!!!

    I like the sentiment, but....

    It begins with "Random", ends with "Thread", and contains "Shit That Doesn't Deserve A" in the middle.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Not to be discarded, just re-filed.

    I must admit, the new album has me disoriented. Had I possessed all of my faculties at the time of my post I might have placed it in the correct receptacle. So sorry.

    Yep. This elation has us (to borrow from a poster here) wondering whether to scratch our watch or wind our asses.

    Comes with the territory.
