    Am I allowed to like both VHIII and Diver Down? Because I do. I agree, Diver Down is a great album, and in my opinion it should have been represented on the Best of album. Little Guitars, Hang em High, Where Have All the Good Times Gone, Cathedral, Secrets; all great tunes. But I like VH III as well. No, not as much as any Dave era album, and probably not as much as any Sammy era album either. But there are some good tunes on III. I love a Year to the Day, Without You, One I Want, Once, Josephina. No question, if your looking for it to burn like Fair Warning, for example, you're going to be disappointed. I love EVH as an artist, and to me III was his vision and creation.

    Diver Down is better,but only because the songs are easier to listen to.I enjoyed Ed's guitar playing on 3 a lot more.

    I liked III. It was a total departure for VH. My favorite off the whole cd is 'Once' there's something in that song the touches me. After 'Josephina', I lose interest though.

    Diver Down on the other hand is a fun album. There are great tracks all the way through. To me it's a toss up. They're both good, just diffenent.

    ed6150: i think diver down sucks because i dont like it! not because of what ed thinks about it. please come correct with facts and not some bullshit! just because diver down is my least fav. vh album that does not make my opinion no less valid. so what if you dont like vh3? thats your own opinion. it goes both ways. i need no lessons from you at all! i like something because i like it. same goes for the hate thing too.

    Sometimes I wonder if people hate VH III because of the music or because it came on the heels of a possible Dave reunion in 1996. Maybe I'm a hypocrite because I like to put my two cents in on topics that compare songs. But the VH albums aren't in competition with each other. What you think of one album doesn't change another. I like VH III but that doesn't change the fact that I think Fair Warning is the ultimate Van Halen album. I've said this before, but all the Van Halen albums are part of the family to me, and I wouldn't want to change any of them. Just my opinion, not trying to change anyone else's.

    Ed, I wasn't referring to you specifically, don't take personal offense. And nowhere in that post did I compare VH III to Fair Warning. I totally support your right to hate VH III, but I think you misunderstood me.
