    Default 5150 vs Eat 'Em and Smile

    I remember buying the 5150 album on vinyl in early 86'. A few months later Eat 'Em and Smile is released and of course, I bought the album. I played the shit out of both. Love those albums! Diamond Dave vs. Van Halen - a little friendly competition between the two superpowers. Those were the days when music didn't suck!

    Which album do you prefer?

    No contest for me but I suspect if one is a CVH person, then EEAS.

    "5150 was such a departure. I remember hearing WCTBL with my cousin and blah blah." I saved you the trouble JD. We know you hate that song.

    5150 for the win.

    5150, and it is not even close. The music, lyrics, musical and vocal performances were superior in every way. It was a most worthy number album, with four radio hits and some endearing and enduring Van Halen classics.

    Dreams, WCTBL, and LWI will be the ones that are to blame for picking EEAS.

    Wow, a douchebag response from you? Shocker.

    Like both albums, and even though Dave's lyrics and vocals are superior, Ed and Al give 5150 the slight nod. Vai and Bisonnette are great but they can't compare to the Brothers.

    Ted's production on EEAS is way better than 5150, though.

    Dreams is a good tune, even with Sam's straining. A rock anthem that has always been fun to play on drums because there is room to change up fills and add to it, much like Alex typically did live.
