    1984 and 5150.

    The diversity of each makes both remarkably fun to listen to back-to-back.

    1) OU812 and FUCK

    5150 is the worst of the Van Hagar albums, and Balance doesn't have the same vibe as any of the others.

    2) VH 1 and VH 2

    So many classics and so many great songs

    How about 1984 and ADKOT?

    Technically back to back for CVH era fans.

    ALL VH albums are great, back to back, forward & sideways.

    But, if I absolutely had to pick some of their albums as better than others, I would have to say that their first four albums are my favorite. Therefore, my favorite back-to-backs would have to be:

    VH1 and VH2

    VH2 and W&CF

    W&CF and FW

    Just think about what VH did to the world during the four years of 1978-1981. Holy shit! It was like a nuclear bomb of greatness!

    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.

    Remember the cassette tape with WACF on one side and Fair Warning on the other?

    Man, I loved that thing, but my vote does not go for these two albums. Even though individually, they were frickin' awesome. They were so different. The tone and the songs. Fair Warning's production was different, in my opinion, and I don't know much about these things.

    Diver Down and 1984 flow well.

    And breaking the rules - Humans Being and MWM and CGTSNM.
