    The four originals on Diver Down are stellar. If they had added 5 or 6 of their best demos (several of which ended up on ADKOT), Diver Down would have been one of their best albums.

    It's basically common knowledge that their best 5 albums are all with Dave. 5150 is generally considered a better album than Diver Down.

    Wish they would have simply spent a couple more weeks on the album.

    I understand the covers, it was a business decision, they needed a hit song. But they had all those demo's laying around that they could have worked from and crafted a great album.

    It has a nostalgic place for me, as it was my first VH album, my brother bought it for me as a birthday present. I remember the inside cover pictures of them playing the Tangerine Bowl and the picture of the band, and I realized there was a whole bigger world out there for me to investigate.

    Little Guitars makes the "greatest rock song no one has heard of" list.

    Diver Down was definitely rushed, and it shows. The success of the (Oh) Pretty Woman single prompted Warner Bros. to pressure VH to go back into the studio before they were ready.

    The 01 that is said to be the one they recorded during the Diver Down' sessions is the one without the "Oh! Lala!" thing Dave used to do.

    I go back and forth between which of the two is a better album. While neither is in my personal VH top 5, I love them both.

    Thanks to 'vets', I enjoy the freedom to prefer the Sammy era and the right to post about it.

    And the Military (Blue Angels) didn't pick a Roth era tune, did they?

    I love Diver Down - I always did and I always will!
    5150 is a nice record, probably the best Van hagar album, IMHO.

    While I can listen to DD the whole day without skipping tunes, it does not happen with 5150. I can't stand some tunes there, man.
    I's a chronic issue between me versus Love Walks in or Best of both Worlds.
