    OU812 is a great album. It was a good producer away from one of Van Halen's best. I think the boys should have stuck with Mick Jones. I think he would have pushed Sammy to get serious with his lyrics on SOI, BnB, and Sucker.

    Van Halen II proved Van Halen was no fluke. Great album.

    VH II is Van Halen hitting that sweet spot of (II, WACF, FW & the originals on DD).

    My favorite era of VH!

    I hated OU812 at the time, but i've grown to appreciate it.
    Even a song like Cabo Wabo (just a horrible title, btw), has some really interesting musical
    parts that i never caught the first time.

    AFU, Sucker, Black & Blue, FWYS, are all exceptional mach II jams.
    I even grudgingly dig WIL, but only just the verses (that is a great groove, but sadly, it morphs
    into something sappy).

    VH II is by far my favorite of all eras.

    "Light Up The Sky", "Outta Love Again"...Brilliant.

    Ou812 is OK.

    I like FWYS and MAM. BAB is cool, too

    II & WACF are my alternating number one's.
    FW is just a hair behind....

    I remember owning I & II, and being blown away by the debut upon first listen.

    Yet, i kept revisiting II, constantly.

    VH II is darker than the debut. "You're No Good" is killer, too.

    VHII was a great follow up to the debut album.
    OU812 was a good follow up to 5150 but the bass was way too low.

    I'll tell ya, I was listening to OU812 last night on my ride home (because of this thread actually), I love that disk. Mine All Mine is such a great song. AFU is awesome and I LOVE Cabo Wabo these days.

    Back in 1988 or 89, I would have preferred OU812 to VH2, however today I can't even compare the two. Nothing against anybody who loves OU812 but outside of Cabo Wabo, I really have fallen out of love with it. Still a good album because its VH but to me comparing the two is like comparing Diary of a Madman vs No More Tears. Both sophomoric albums by Randy Rhoads and Zakk. God I used to love No More Tears but today one album sounds classic and is a bit compromised by when it was released. Sorry but production has as much to do with it as songwriting.

    That said VH2 has two of my favorite pop rock songs by VH. Dance the Night Away and Beautiful Girls. God I wish Sammy would have given a stab at DTNA. Think it would have been awesome
