    "Outta Space" is the song that grabbed me by the shirt collar upon first listen ... and it still hasn't let up. Classic VH!

    The song list is very subjective though. Apart from Outta Sace and Doom and Gloom, which are fantastic songs, I don't think the rest deserve to be in the top 10. I would much rather choose Street Jesus or Out Go the Lights over Legendary Child from Aerosmith; choose I Don't Wanna Lose Lose Yo, Threshold of a Breakdown, or Heartache in Blue over Gosta Get Paid by ZZ Top; Eat Your Heart Out, Shout Mercy or Take Me Down Below over Long Way Down by Kiss; and toss Big River in as a second VH song over Chicken Foot or Rush.

    I don't like Clockwork Angels or CFIII as much as some on here, but there is no denying they are both solid efforts. There are incredible songs on both discs.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    Whoa. That's not only one of my favourites on the album, but one of my favourite VH songs of all time. I was never a huge fan of Big Trouble, but Big River is, IMO, a massive improvement and a classic song.

    Kind of funny since they reviewed the album early and were underwhelmed on first listen but then said after subsequent listens, it might be a classic.

    Good to see the fellas getting some well deserved recognition!

    Outta Space has become my favorite song on the album. My 6 year old loves it because he can sing the phrase "rocket's ass" and not get in trouble.

    That was Classic Rock (UK magazine), not UltimateClassicRock.com.
