    EXACTLY.

    It is to bad you can't tag members on this forum. Even almost 20 years later, I still remember @FFONER (Greg R) being the voice/defender for Diver Down.

    Plus that 82-83 Tour.... Damn it was great.

    There is no way in Hell ADKOT trumps Diver.

    Diver is STILL CVH, from that golden period of youth & innovation.
    Duh. But ADKOT is still gonna win that vote. Idiocy.

    My problem with Diver it is so damn short, and I don't like how it sounds. Many, including you lump it in with the first four production wise, but for some reason it sounds off to me. Not sure if they did it someplace different, or in Studio A instead of Studio B, but it simply sounds different and I am not in love with the change.

    Just me I am sure.

    The four originals are among the best things they have ever laid down. HEH, Secrets, LG, TFB...killer stuff.

    Pretty impressive accomplishment though that they could turn around a multi-platinum album in about two weeks with little to no prep work.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    There is much more of a debate to be made between DD and ADKOT than there is between II and III.

    I'm just wondering if people held the "I" key down a little too long when making that pick. ...or perhaps they're in need of medical attention.

    Might favorite VH album would probably be VH II, but I just pick III in these things to be an outlier. There's no science or art to it.

    If III would have gone up against DD, which I love... III would have been chosen still.

    Pfft. Ear candling. Look it up.

    '84 is about as warm as Valerie was to Dave backstage on the same tour.

    Personally, I think 3 of the DD OG's probably trump anything in the six pack (after Fair Warning, ITO, OF, IASR, GGB, and HFT), that's how fuckin' good they are.

    If VH would have taken 4 or 5 demos that ended up on ADKOT and included them on Diver Down, that would have resulted in an album that would have rivaled anything in the 6 pack.

    Isn't this a circular reference somehow? If Diver Down were better it would rival.... itself?!
    Just kidding, but I wouldn't change Diver Down at all. It rocks.

    Yes, but it could have been much better. Same goes for ADKOT.
