    Overrated: 5150. Donít get me wrong - I love it. Production/mix is kinda a buzzkill and it has some filler tunes I could never hear again.

    Underrated: A Different Kind of Truth. After a hiatus of over a decade and all the various issues worked through to get to that point - this album had no business being so damn good. Yes, the mix is brick walled and Ed couldíve halved the gain knob on his ampsÖbut that album breaths fire.

    Here's JD's answer. I'll answer for him with a "can't believe some love drivel like WCTBL or CSLY".

    You know he has to mention. His disdain for those two track regardless of topic.

    So the JD answer will be WACF.

    Overrated:

    For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge - this album is basically half killer and half filler. Too many songs that are just meh by Van Halen standards.

    Underrated:

    Van Halen II - I can play this album all the way through without any urge to skip a single track. It's not Van Halen I, but nothing else is.

    5150 was a game changer. For better or worse. It was an album that NOBODY expected to hear from that band. A total 180.

    5150 is my favorite album from the Sam era.

    Overrated- I'll go Adkot, it just had zero staying power for me for some reason. I listened to to the hell out of it for a couple months, then maybe twice since.

    Underrated- III yeah I said it, it has two of the worst VH songs ever, but I enjoyed about half of it

    Listened to ADKOT back to back 4 times in a row the night it dropped.

    None since.

    Overrated - FUCK

    Underrated - VHII
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box
