    Default Diver Down or Van Halen 3

    So it's a very Halen Saturday night kickin back smokin' drinkin' and listening to some Dave era tunes to celebrate the new tour(fingers crossed).
    When my very Halenized friend starts talkin shit about how 3 is better than DD. Now while I really can't wrap my mind around the whole 3 thing I don't trash it or anyone who's into it. I still throw it in occasionally(annually).
    Anyway this is where you come in.
    Diver Down or 3?
    Why behave in public if you're
    Livin' on a playground?

    I go for Diver Down. Even though there are so many covers, there are also great originals. Song for song it is a much better album.

    Don't like either.........but covers blow, and there were some good riffs on 3, so I will painfully say I would take 3 over DD.

    i was/am a big fan of cherone/extreme, but having re-listened to 3 recently as well as diver down, i have to take diver down by a landslide... i don't know why so many people are down on d.d. - it seems that they are against just because of the covers... it's a fun record, more like a very long e.p. to me... vh built their repertoire and fine-tuned their show by doing lots and lots of covers in the early days... this was an official tip of the cap to those days i thought...

    Who cares if it has covers. The original tunes more than make up for the cover-factor.

    Diver Down is the Real VH !! They always had an affinity for paying tribute to some great covers... That's no crime...And VH had a knack for bringing something FRESH to the table in the process.
    I love the sound of the band back in ol' days
    In contrast, I simply don't like the sound of the band on vh3
    didn't like the songs or the production either... I'm not slamming it,
    just wasn't my cup of tea at all.

    In the ol' days, Ed had a unique sound... I don't think the same
    can be said of vh3.
    And the unique sound is what drew me to VH

    if anyone ever wanted a solo album from ed; 3 is the closest thing. I give him credit for expressing his creativity that way.

    Is this poll a joke??

    VH3 is a steaming pile of horse shit. There's just no other way around it. How anyone could choose that over any other VH album, ESPECIALLY one with DLR is fucking beyond me. Diver Down, covers or not, is pure Van Halen.

    Find me one song on 3 that could even begin to compare to Little Guitars, WHATGTG, Hang Em High, Full Bug, Secrets, or Pretty Woman. And yes, I'll take Dancing In The Street over anything on 3. Not even close.

    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    The four originals on DD blow ALL of 3 away.

    So, you know my answer
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    Ok, I found my one reason why someone would choose 3 over Diver Down: age. I noticed you are 13 and that explains a lot. And no disrespect intended, it's just that you have an entirely different perspective on each and every album. You never lived through the DLR years OR the Sammy years, so if you prefer 3 then I can live with that.

    I can't believe this was a real poll.

    How about favorite VH song: Unchained or How Many Say I?
