    Two of them should be and two of them could be competitive.

    VH II and WACF should be a very competitive matchup.

    Van Halen vs. OU812
    Van Halen II vs. Women And Children First
    Fair Warning vs. A Different Kind Of Truth
    1984 vs. 5150

    Easy choices in terms of the individual match ups, but I felt bad eliminating 5150 and ADKOT.

    I once spent over 40 minutes composing a new album competition thread initially intended as an impulsive joke to sarcastically mock these kinda threads in good lighthearted fun.....

    The thread was - Which VH album sounds best backwards....

    I typed the whole thread backwards...including the title....had to write all the song titles & type it out in reverse....including the number sequence...

    But I lost the post as I was sidetracked away from the computer before I could submit it...then when I submitted it later I had been away too long & automatically logged out....ugh....

    Always meant to do it again....you should've seen it....

    You'd click the thread title...which looked kooky as fuck since it's typed backwards....then see the opening post....everything backwards typed....

    Then...the idea was to add a second post with everything typed normally...& then you'd see the runming order song sequences actually would sound good if reversed.

    You can play those VH albums backwards & they still sound great. Just give it a try & you'll see with your own eyes & ears if you play them backwards.
