    I remember digging the "Paint It Red On Black" part.

    I remember not digging anything about those 3 songs.
    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    As always, new tunes from Eddie, upon first arrival, almost always sound like the next coming of the White Album.

    In '96, the first collabs from Dave and Ed since '84 with MWM and CGTSNM were received as they still pretty much are. Mostly for the promise of an album and tour. We all know how that went.

    Even VH3's album in '98, was palatable for a while, probably until after the tour. Lemonade outta lemons and all that.

    In '04, the BOBW tracks were a godsend for most of us...we all thrilled and chilled over the complexities and nuances of LTS. We didn't care about the production or the rhyme or reason. There was some blowback from the cadets du jour about UFB's lyrics and the honeydew my melon shit. I never cared about VH lyrics, still don't, as long as harmonies are in play. Actually, UFB live was pretty friggin' good at Staples. IAT...well, it was apropos at the time, but...just didn't hold up very long. A very few VH fans got to experience LTS live. I often wondered how that translated.

    And of course, ADKOT in '12 was the risen Christ chalice at the time, though eventually the rosy tint wore off and the production and longevity became more clear, and the missing component became crystal clear.
    .
    Only the first ten albums constitute the long term legacy of VH. Everything after that...aside from the diehard fans, matters very little to Joe Q. Public.

    LOL...including any electronica versions of Jump. Because that was what that song so desperately needed. More Disco Duck.

    No VS, disagreed. You can't put this THING in the same category as the rest. This is a public offense to good taste, audio vomit, literally. The kind of thing that if done in a country less respectful of human rights would lead to the aforementioned DJ to have his hands cut off. Horrible.

    Im with Dreamer, wouldnt discuss this version of Jump in the same breath as the other peripheral VH tunes you listed. for mine its not part of VH canon at all (I dont consider it a DLR track either), and its cleary putrid.

    With regards the rest of your assessment, pretty spot on, give or take. FWIW I put UFB in the same catagory as Amsterdam & Black & Blue as awesome EVH tone and riffs ruined by purile lyrics.
