    Best sounding album but the material wasn't as strong. It has some of my favourite tunes with Sammy (Runaround and Top of the World), but too many songs that i felt weren't very good.

    Well said. Half killer, half filler.

    Judgement Day, Pleasure Dome & The Dream Is Over are 3 of VH's best songs, regardless of era.

    The production was certainly a step up from 5150 and OU812, but it still doesn't sound as full and clear as Balance and the 3 tracks done for Best of Volume 1.

    Those aren’t even the 3 best songs on this album.

    What songs do you feel are better on FUCK?

    Removing those three leaves:

    In/Out
    Right Now
    Man on a Mission
    Spanked
    Poundcake
    316
    Top of the World


    None of those songs above unseat Judgement Day, Pleasure Dome or Dream Is Over. Not one, IMO.

    Easily the strongest album of the Hagar era for me..
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Top of the World might be the best anthem they wrote with Sammy. Runaround might be my favourite Sammy tune. Those two are great.

    my least favorite Van Halen album outside of VH3. For one half of it is filler. 2nd as mentioned before the drums for me are just too out there. I don't like the production. Its the opposite of the production of OU812. Its like they course corrected and went the other way. It features likely the least inspired playing by Eddie. Heck he didn't pick up a guitar for a year before it was made so that tells you how much he was playing guitar.. Lastly Eddie had two new toys. Neck pickup and a wah. When Eddie gets a new toy he goes Full Hammett While his tone had been changing for years, this was something totally different.

    Has a few really great songs but there was a lot of filler on this.
