That "I told you I was coming back" gives me the chills. Simple as it was. I'm as teary eyed as the day I heard he was leaving. Dave always spoke of closure with Van Halen. I needed that closure, too. Welcome back Dave. So God damn glad your back. Sayin' it like I mean it.

There is NO way these guys should sound this fucking good after 29 years...Except for the fact that this is Van Fucking Halen!!!! Dave SHOULD be doing the victory dance!

Since this is the thread that took over I'll repost what I said in the 90 second clip thread:

Finally heard the full track for "Blood and Fire." HOLY FUCK! (I *never* say that.) 28 FUCKIN' YEARS!!! When the bridge came in, Dave started rappin', and then Ed just TEARS IT... I cried. I literally shed tears. HOLY FUCKING WOW, man. Thank you, soooooo much Van Halen. This is like audio sunshine for the person that has been shunned for decades. I don't know if I can listen to it again until this all finally sinks in.

Holy freakin' fuck.

Big Thanks for the VH Radio link.... Big Thanks. great to hear these as a whole song. Im not sure why, but at first on all these short clips... they were not hitting the mark for me, but the songs in their entirety really were slammin'.

Really glad to hear them sound so good. Ed just sounds great , the clarity is a nice balance for his sound as its heavy , but you can hear the tactile feel of the pick on the strings on "Blood and Fire".

No kidding. It's got that good ol VH swing I haven't heard since the early 80's but there's something new to it. They pulled it off and Wolfie's bass playing sounds great and the background vocals sound great. VH on a good day can just put music together nobody else can.

LOL..I know... I've been pretty tough on "tattoo" but thats because I honestly wasn't happy with that coming off the Blisteringly cool Cafe Wha' stuff.

But I just wanted them to DESTROY all expectations because you just know those music journalist types would just be waiting to dismiss them as a nostalgia act....

and they came out swinging...this stuff keeps surprising me. and thats killer.

I'm just glad Eddie didn't kick the bucket when he fell off the wagon and went all crazy. We would have missed out on these new great songs. That was some dark place he was in. For all I know he got into Sam's Cabo Wabo rot gut and it did him in. Anyways, it's great to see Ed back and doing really good creative things again.

'Blood & Fire' is just insanely good. Y'know, I was just glad we were going to get something, and I'd have been pleased just as long as they didn't embarass themselves - but that is flat out GREAT.

'The Trouble With Never' has a 'Girl Gone Bad' vibe to me. Love the final third of the song/the lyrics and the riff, but I'm struggling a little to feel the hook line in the chorus. Maybe it'll grow on me (like 'Tattoo').

It's clear - given the diversity of theses three tunes - that they've really thought about making and ALBUM, rather than cobbling any old shit together.

Well, those guys did a tour about the same time Van Halen did the last one. Maybe they'll be motivated to do an album now. They seem to be running a parallel existence to Van Halen all along. Both bands put out their first album in 1978, broke up in 1985, had a couple false start reunions before the real thing, etc.

And Sting's solo albums were every bit as disappointing as Van Hagar.

Now ive woke up and kinda sober what the fuck happened ......... one second theres a clip of blood and fire next there is two whole songs kicking about ....
These both rock, am totally loving the whole blood and fire groove it gets better every time and it fucking killed the first time !! The solo shows ed's still got it big time
There is something totally instantly classic about blood and fire ...
And when he said told you i was coming back i nearly bust ..

victory dance indeed..

Blood and Fire is absolutely amazing!! My god...the lyrics, at first listen, sound like the all encompassing, last 28 years of shit slinging is gone forever anthem...We came, we came, we came through the blood and fire....now look at all of the people...here tonight....ahhhh....(actually had a tear in my eye when I heard that phrase put to lyrics)
"Told ya I was comin' back....say ya missed me, say it like ya mean it!" Ed's solo...are you fuckin' kidding me? SAH-MOKIN!

The 90 second clip of Stay Frosty...all I''m gonna say is this: HOLY SHIT...does this song have some serious promise or what? Nothin like danglin the carrot on a stick with the heavy riffage on the last 10 or 15 seconds!! I can't wait to hear the rest of this bitch!

Van Halen...over this last month...to the day...you have erased the pain of the last 28 years...and this album isnt even out yet!!

and oh yeah...Happy Birthday, Edward!! Thank YOU, Dave, Wolf and Alex for giving US these gifts!

one more thing...from all the tracks so far...this is setting up to be Dave's lyrical masterpiece...every lyric uttered so far has been a gem...

...A Diamond, more specifically...

Damn straight! I should be making breakfast. I can't function! I got busted at work by my boss (a great guy, thankfully) checking out the Amazon.UK clips on my work computer yesterday. Same thought ran through my head. How pissed would my family be if I lost my job over something like that? Van Halen hysteria is in full effect!! Watch yourselves!!

It's like they never lost a step. The bass sounds really good too, Wolfie's doing a great job.

Love the vocals, Dave sounds great. He's actually singing really well, and the harmonies are tight too. I know there's some "studio magic" involved, and I hope this stuff sounds as good live!!!!

I'm in one of those frames of mind where I'm just gonna keep throwing up random posts every time I listen to them. I keep finding more and more stuff to love every time. It really is enough to make a grown man cry.

Was gravitating towards "Blood and Fire" as my new fave, but "The Trouble With Never" keeps growing. That one just rips your face off at the opening, and I love Wolfie's bass mirroring his dad's guitar.

Be prepared for random psycho-babble from me as my mind continues to be blown to fucking shreds...

Another thing is that it seems the last 28 years haven't been too kind to these haters. They are used to mediocrity I guess.

I also think these idiots don't even know what Van Halen was all about in that there was so much more than Jump, Panama, Hot for Teacher, etc.

They think they know but really they don't. And that goes for assholes like Eddie Trunk.

The real Van Halen fans know. We can feel it.

I have to say, I'm really disappointed with the way the band (label?) is handling the release of these songs. At 7 years old in 1984 I bought "1984" (first tape ever) with my hard-earned allowance. I still have that tape, it means a lot to me. Now fast forward 25+ years later and the follow up is upon us... and I have to fucking deal with New Zealanders and Brits getting early/exclusive access to the new singles? I had to fucking hack a NZ site to get my order processed to pay double for Tattoo. You can't scream any louder for me to "steal" these tracks. I've bought every fucking vh & DLR album 3-5 times over. I have every cvh album in vinyl/tape/cd/remasters. I've been to over a dozen shows. I don't think this is the right way to treat the fans.

They should just release the singles to everyone at the same time, none of this region specific bullshit. I was fed up and just downloaded the tracks off my favorite torrent tracker. Sucks I have to go through these lengths to be satisfied.

Fuck y'all! Go back to listening to (im)Balance, fucks.

Point me in that direction...

I'll chase them away for good...

I think you can buy them from the UK if you use a proxy server.

I really don't get all the hate on the new VH songs.


Where are you seeing this? At the Links?

Christ you could post 3 tracks off "Fair Warning" over there in a thread called New Tracks, and you would find haters.

I tried this, but whenever I went to checkout it asked me to login again. Logging in would direct me away from the proxy site and would predictably throw an error that I was in the wrong region. Plus, I don't see how the Amazon download client would allow me to download the song as it would easily be able to detect my region.

I have to say, I'm really disappointed with the way the band (label?) is handling the release of these songs. At 7 years old in 1984 I bought "1984" (first tape ever) with my hard-earned allowance. I still have that tape, it means a lot to me. Now fast forward 25+ years later and the follow up is upon us... and I have to fucking deal with New Zealanders and Brits getting early/exclusive access to the new singles? I had to fucking hack a NZ site to get my order processed to pay double for Tattoo. You can't scream any louder for me to "steal" these tracks. I've bought every fucking vh & DLR album 3-5 times over. I have every cvh album in vinyl/tape/cd/remasters. I've been to over a dozen shows. I don't think this is the right way to treat the fans.

They should just release the singles to everyone at the same time, none of this region specific bullshit. I was fed up and just downloaded the tracks off my favorite torrent tracker. Sucks I have to go through these lengths to be satisfied.

I understand the point, this happens all the time usually the other way around with the US getting it first and it makes no sense to me. It's against the interests of the copyright holder to tempt people to steal.

You get cult shows like Lost or The Sopranos being available on torrent for weeks while you wait for it to reach the HBO channel that you pay for.

The thing is that if 1984 had come out in the UK 2 weeks before the US back in the day you may not have even known and you wouldn't have had a way to get it.

I guess the thing is that the albums are almost like flyers for the tour. You could end up paying 20 times as much in concert tickets than you do on the album itself. Fuck a few years ago I went to a Prince arena show which was incidentally 'only' about $50 and they handed you the CD as you went in.

Yep, I spent 10 times the price of an album on Van Halen today and will spend another 10 - 20 Saturday morning.

No not at the links. Majority over there actually dig the new stuff.

It's the people who comment on YouTube, Facebook, rolling stone.com, and other music sites that have a comments section.

I honestly don't know where these fucks came from. They talk as if they know what Van Halen should sound like but it's clear they don't know shit.

Oh, that's the Sham/Chickenfoot(note)* spam brigade. Doesn't mean shit. Most of them will buy the album

and jerk off to it in private.

If it's not a song the recognize from the first Van Halen album then they trash it. I think they are just dickless, fuckwad, limp wristed, no-load, pillow biting, attention seeking twats who liked Spandau Ballet better back in the day.

You guys should chill a bit. This new album isn't for those fucking idiots. Was made especially for us.

No kidding. It's got that good ol VH swing I haven't heard since the early 80's but there's something new to it. They pulled it off and Wolfie's bass playing sounds great and the background vocals sound great. VH on a good day can just put music together nobody else can.

Holy crap.

THE Roth Army is not going to jeopardize our relationship with Diamond Dave Enterprises by linking to illegally downloaded Van Halen songs....

Me too. Had to make sure I found one where I could listen without downloading. I absolutely refuse to.

By streaming the song, you have transferred data from the server to your computer.

You downloaded it. ;)

There is NO way these guys should sound this fucking good after 29 years...Except for the fact that this is Van Fucking Halen!!!!

And of course, I saved the best for last.

I think that's all the embarrassing posts in THIS thread.

Who wants to take another crack at this shaming business?
