    Default Vote "Tokyo" Vs. "RHRN."

    Ultimate Classic Rock presents ultimate Van Halen fan click-bait. A simple vote - Tokyo or RHRN - you decide what rules and what drools. The consequences will never be the same.

    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddieís prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    Opposite sides of two spectrums. You not only have Dave vs. Sam, but also produced/re-recorded vs. raw/untouched performances. Apples and oranges if you ask me.

    I give the edge , ahem , right now , to RHRH .
    Before the flames begin ... let me explain ;

    I saw that tour and have played that album countless times over the years . I know every lick and fill like the back of my hand . My old band even used to play certain versions of those songs from that album .

    It's NOT a Sam vs Dave thing at all - I love Eddie's playing on it . The new Tokyo discs are settling in nicely , and I spent last night with disc #2 and some headphones and beer . Awesome stuff !!!

    I'd already rank it pretty close , due to the classic tunes and the raw but spirited playing by the band . Just like my whole VH mantra -I like it all .

    DLR should have re-recorded his vocals on parts of 3-4 songs. Then I could blast the CDs worry free in my car at a red light with the windows down. There I said it.

    Tokyo got my vote. I think vh's biggest problem is they release their worst stuff first for some reason. The 2 disc set is that way too where the album starts off slow but the more you listen it gets better. But then Jump at the end he is singing out of key. I agree there are 3 or 4 questionable songs on it but it's a live album. There are about 18 great sounding songs. They sound really good for a bunch of 60 year olds. Both japanese shows and a few others they were on.

    I think nostalgia wise Tokyo is better than RHRN and RHRN was a really good live album. As far as sound quality and production, live without a net, RHRN, Tokyo Dome and there are some high production early all sound good to me.

    Well...I like T&A better than both of them.
    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!

    At the moment I give the nod to Tokyo. They both kinda suck though!

    j/k, I like both albums. Just excited about Tokyo cuz it's new. RHRN took me decades to appreciate, something about that album is just difficult. And it's not Sammy, I'm not anti- Sammy at all. Just didn't care for it for a long long time, hard to even say why.
