    This order is incredibly baffling in so many ways.

    Not even sure where to start.

    That ranking, while admittedly fringe, is nowhere near the audacity of 2 trumping WC.

    Aw, heck, maybe it is.

    Could start with the biggest misstep...which seems to be ranking ADKOT over 84 and WACF.

    Ranking OU812 over VH I is WAY worse than ranking II over WACF.

    How about ranking all 4 Sammy albums ahead of every Dave album?

    1. 5150

    3. Van Halen
    4. For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge
    5. Fair Warning
    6. OU812

    8. Women And Children First
    9. A Different Kind Of Truth
    10. Van Halen III
    11. Van Halen II
    12. Diver Down

    But it is all compromises... Actually the only no-skip album for me on the list is FUCK (still, I don't like Top of the World). Other than that, there is at least one song per album I truly dislike. These are, respectively:

    Love Walks In (closely followed by Dreams)
    Jump (I'll Wait a close second)
    Jamie's Cryin'
    Top of the World (If I had to pick one)
    Sunday Afternoon in the Park (followed by One Foot Out the Door)
    When It's Love (Feels So Good a close second)
    Doin' Time/Strung out (followed by Not Enough. Good Enough is good enough for me, while not enough is certainly not enough)
    Could This Be Magic?
    Tattoo (closely followed by You and Your Blues. I know this song has many fans)
    Josephina
    Beautiful Girls
    Dancing in the Streets (followed by (Oh) Pretty Woman and Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now); the famous originals are not great too, e.g. Secrets).

    Yes, they are. You think VH3 is better than the 4 OGs on Diver?

    Card revoked.

    Frankly speaking I like Hang 'Em High and Little Guitars. When it comes to instrumentals I like Cathedral even though don't like the fact that Ed made his guitar sound like keyboards. Intruder, on the other hand, is pure noise for me (and I like whammy tricks).
