    Damn! I downloaded that album off Napster and it blew me away. The rock, the rap edge w. the Jamaican rapper, the country element, the blues,.... This album blew Skyscraper (which I think was his weakest album) away. Eat Em', ALAE, and DLR Band come in close seconds. If you guys don't agree, you've at least got to admit that this was his most deverse work.

    Definitely his most diverse, but I'd say it's his weakest. The first four songs are really good, then it loses me with A Little Luck, Cheatin' Heart Cafe, Hey You Never Know, and No Big Ting. Then it gets back on track for the last six songs. It does have some very strong songs; Big Train, Night Life, Sunburn and Experience on it.

    IMO A Little Ain't Enough is far and away the heavyweight champion of David Lee Roth solo albums.

    I don't know. I actually liked the songs like "Cheatin' Heart Cafe." To each his own. In my opinion, the award of worst Roth album goes to Skyscraper.

    What do you think of Steve Vai though? I'm sorry, but he just reminds me so much of Yanni. (His album Passion and Warfare and Roth's Skyscraper are two of the worst albums I've ever heard)The guy is a pretty respectable player, but his work on EEAS and Skyscraper sound so dated and like pale imitations of Eddie.

    As for Jason Becker and Terry Kilgore. Their work on Roth's ALAE and YFLM were great.

    I think Eat Em and Smile is awesome, the vibe is so pure and ecstatic. Skyscraper has great songs in my opinion, but the production really lets the material down. Hina on the Skyscraper album is really a hidden gem (Jem-Get it) in the Roth catalogue.

    I'm not very familiar with Vai outside of his work with Dave, though I love his guitar playing with Roth. But frankly I think Dave's best material is ALAE, after he finished working with Vai.

    I like YFLM, my favorite songs from it are YFLM and She's My Machine.
    I agree that it is very diverse. But I would say that it's Dave's second worst album.

    My least favorite is DLR Band. That is a very poor album to me, when you compare it to Dave's first three solo albums.
    Also, Dave's voice sounds very weak to me on DLR Band.

    I think Vai is incredable!!! EEAS is the best album, I would say Skycraper is secound followed by ALAE.

    I am moving this topic to songs and albums.
