    Default Which is the better album opener?




    I like both but Last temptation grabs me a bit more probably due to the more melodic chorus.

    Revolution for me, not even close.

    One of the great songs they did.
    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!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    I'd have to go with Last Temptation.
    Always seem to hear that song at the club when ever I stop in.

    Last Temptation. It's got a great chorus.

    Something never sat quite right with me and Avenida Revolution.

    Revolution.
    Sadly, I didn't like a single song off the second record.

    Last Temptation for me.
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    Sam is still capable of writing great songs, he just needs someone to edit his writing and toss out the bad ones.

    Agree with you on the first part. Avenida Revolution is the better opener.
    I disagree with your second statement, though. Alright Alright by its own is a uplifting track you need to crank up and was really great live.

    Dubai Blues is a great track too.

    Both are good openers, but Avenida is the best. It's one of my favorite on both records.

    This is a great song ...

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you"

    "Be careful what you wish for because you just might lose what you already have"
