    what is this 'Blender' magazine, and what does it look like? Is it national, in other words, can I get it easily?

    After reading the reviews (painstakingly), I have to say that I mostly don't agree with the author. I mean, he noted 'Neworld' as the highlight of VH III!! Come on now, VH III was a great experimental album for Eddie, though vocally/lyrically/sonically weak, it had some great riffs and song structure.

    Also, Balance was incredibly underrated while Diver Down should have been down with VH III.

    Cool to see that spread in a mag though.

    I read this article and it is completely bullshit. Giving F.U.C.K. two out of five and saying that by this time van halen had run out of energy and that the yells in the crowds at shows were defeaning for the return of david lee roth is downright stupid. Carnal Knowledge was the peak of the van hagar era, arguably. That album won a grammy, billboard, and AMA. Plus right now took home mad video awards, and the tour was the biggest seller of '91 in the midst of the recession. This guy is obviously not a van halen fan of any sorts cuz he knows nothing other than vh3 is the worst of the batch.

    Yeah, this guy doesn't know what he's talking about. Diver Down ranked the same as 5150? Give me a break.

    Thanks 'diddle'.

    Nice to see Mikey get some props in the VH 2 review.

    BTW, saying that Gene Simmons financed the demos that got VH signed is a big stretch.

    LOL! I saw that article in a store a few weeks ago. I don't think I agree with a word that man said. [img]tongue.gif[/img] He's got VH 3 ranked the same as all Van Hagar albums except 5150??! What a joke!

    Yeah Diver down is way better than 5150....When Cheese Comes Walking In???? Why Can't This Be Cheese????? Cheeses????? oh and the rockers are laughable.....Get Up???? come on.....although the song 5150 is a good song....the best on the album...especially the intro and outro to the song.....

    You know I love Big Bad Bill it's a fun witty cover(plus the boys had the honor to record with their pop).....I was always a fan of the original versions of Pretty Woman and Dancing In The Streets and I love the way VH "VanHalenized" as Dave would say those songs......Pretty Woman is still tongue in cheek(sort of making fun of himself in the song), and Dancing Rocks with quite a "unique" way of using a Synth.....you cannot compare those songs...w/ those cheesey van Hagar originals.....oh and the Originals on Diver Down kick ass Full Bug.....Hang Em High.....etc etc....I personally love that album....it rocks and it's fun......but that's my opinion...

    I don't want to know what you're thinking about Eddie is doing with the Synth. LOL.
