I still dont understand why nearly everyone bashes the shit outta the "Diamond Dave" album. It's not near the top of my Dave solo album rankings, but I still think he did a helluva job with the material. I know it's not a hard rock album, but Dave is having a fucking blast, and that alone is enough to warrant at least an occasional listen. I agree that it isnt a classic(or anywhere near the standards of EEAS, DLR Band etc.), but people make it sound like it's worse than a fuckin' Van Hagar album! Now that said, it's time to get back to original songs, and hard rock.

Right on.

Here's the problem though. I have friends that are Dave fans that have confessed that they think VH3 is a better album.

Not me, as far as I'm concerned neither of them are really listenable.

Dave fucking butchered "If Six Was Nine." When I heard he was doing a cover of that song I could wait to hear it.

After I heard it, I wish I never had.

I agree with that. and I'm not saying it's something I listen to all the time. It's not. All I'm saying is once in a while it's a good listen, like when you're driving to the beach or something. I am in full agreement with everyone that it's tiime to get back to the hard rock sound, as well as original songs.

I agree with that as well.

This album was 10 steps back for Dave after DLRBand.

"..driving to the beach or something..."

ROFL classic.

Seriously dudes, it's good shit. It's not like he was goin for a single off of it.

Just for kicks.

Besides, my 4 yr old loves the shit outta it. :)

Who cares if he was going for a single or not?

Dave isn't about "singles."
