    I don't even think it is close.

    Fair Warning.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    I'm sticking with the debut. Eddie just sounds otherworldly on that album...

    WACF first for me, then Fair Warning, then probably 1984.

    ...howev, his VH1 and 1984 tones are just as tasty. I'd take any of the three coming outta my hands and rig any day...

    I think Fair Warning was definitely an evolution in tone, and it's easy to say Fair Warning since it was so heavy sounding. But, if I'm being honest, I have to say my favorite is 1984. It's like the Fair Warning tone, perfected. Just listen to Drop Dead Legs, Girl Gone Bad or Panama. The tone is amazing. Gotta go with 1984.

    Definitely FW or 1984. Both are incredible. I voted for FW, but if I saw this same poll again tomorrow, I might vote for 1984. It's that close for me.

    VHII is no slouch either.... (don't judge it by the un-re-mastered CD version)
