    ..Looking back..Ed was right..we gonna get this record later down the rd..The complex layers ,the gtr tone , the guitar structure , the just press record approach for this record makes me wonder what the next record with cherone would of been..amazing stuff
    ..In 1984 Van Halen Jumped Panama
    Topped Jimmy & Dropped Dead Legs
    ..Ill Wait in this House of Pain with the
    Girl Gone Bad while I am really Hot for Teacher..


    ..Think it was easy ?..you stare at an album

    I actually think it's worst now. I didn't actually get the disk for a couple of years and it was "eh" right off the bat, alot of the guitar solo's were amazing but when most people are talking about the rideout guitar riff to a song (the one at the end of FITH) and not the actual songs that says alot.

    I jsut think it's a terrible disk. Now put a good producer in there and MAYBE you get some decent songs. Let Gary sing like Gary and not like Sammy...etc and maybe it would have been OK.

    I have some boots of that tour and they are good but the album still kind of blows.

    My VH III cd is sitting in a box out in the garage. I haven't listened to it or have had the urge to listen to it in over a decade.
    ďYou can wonder what Roth and Eddie Van Halen are doing in the same band. Itís hard to imagine two guys with less in common psychologically, yet together they seem to make a complete personality. Extrovert balanced by introvert, logic by intuition, entertainment balanced by artistry.Ē --Charles Young, Musician Magazine.

    After the great story by Jeff at VHND I decided to youtube that album and give it another try. An honest try . . . Still don't get it.

    Yeah, it still blows goats for quarters.
    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!

    This thread seems familiar. Has it been tried before?

    Search function has a problem with Van, 3 and III

    I think the album artwork was actually an "inside joke" on the listener...BAM!

    Van Halen III is not very good. It would have been better if Dave had written and recorded a whole other set of songs with Ed instead of Gary, Mike played and sang on it a lot more and Ted Templeman produced it. Then it might have been a little better.

    I found my copy that was stored in a box for the last 10 years. I brought it to work last week and threw it in the pc.. after 3 songs I almost tossed it. The music is good, I just cannot stand Gary's voice. If I could get a copy without the lyrics,, I would listen to it quite often

    I got it then and still do. I pop it in every 6 months or so.

    I was able to tolerate it back in the day and still can today. The production makes it hard to listen but I like pretty much every song outside of Josephina, Ballot or Bullet and of course How Many Say I.

    I will say that Year to the Day has grown on me more with time.

    I was going thru a nasty divorce when III came out. I needed something to keep me sane and I played this cd in my car every minute I was in it (mostly because it was new VH - and I am a nut for anything Eddie does). So, VHIII was my good friend that could lean on during that really hard time in my life. I could never get into NewWorld, Primary, Ballot or the Bullet, and HMSI, but I did find a sense of comfort in the rest of the songs (outside of Gary's voice and lyrics).

    Even though the songs and guitar solos seemed unfinished (almost like a demo), I remember this cd helped me get thru it all.

    But I have to say, III is the only VH cd where I didn't want to learn to play any of the songs on my guitar.
