    Default Why does the new VH album sound so bad????

    Don't get me wrong. I'm not talking about the song writing but the sound quality. The first time I heard Tatoo I got excited. Unfortunatly I can't listen to the CD for very long because it sounds like dog poop.

    These days you don't have to make a rock record sound any good because everyone listens in thier car or on thier Ipod I guess. Make it sound as good as a 128k mp3 and your good. Rockers can't hear anyway I guess.

    I have some classic VH reissued on vinyl and that sounds really good.

    What happened? All the time they spent on this project and this is the best they could do?

    Sounds pretty good in my vehicle and on my home stereo. My only complaint is the drums, to me at least, sound a little too low in the mix at times. Other than that, the production on this new album is one of the best of any VH product in my opinion. Right up there with Balance and FUCK....

    Listening to it on a computer it sounds not that great....but I popped the CD in the Mustang the day I got it and was like HOLY SHIT!

    Then I listen to it on my iPhone in my wife's Tahoe? Sounds not that great...

    Vinyl will just kill 'em all. I will transfer the vinyl to MP3 and listen there most likely....

    Also check into the conversion rate if you put it on iTunes from a CD or download...
    Imagine a world without Eddie Van Halen.

    "From the moment David Lee Roth appeared at the top of a giant runway that snaked through the Oklahoma City Ford Center audience Tuesday night, he wore the one thing that told every Van Halen fan that everything was right with the world. It was a maniacal Cheshire cat smile announcing happiness and enthusiasm that cannot be faked. Not only was the old band back together, it was thriving."

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.
