BABE DON'T LEAVE ME ALONE

PUT OUT THE LIGHTS


However, from the 15 second clips I'm not sure if either of those 2 made it. If not, perhaps the next CD?
I know, I know.. I am not starting a thread to discuss a second CD/Album... Just love those 2 songs and hope they show up on ADKOT.

I just listened to these clips like 15 times each.... I don't think I expected to hear this kind of stuff. I thought that it'd be a cool and fun album w/some good riffs... I didn't really expect full-blast CVH. I am nearly on the fucking floor hearing this shit. This is a 28 year wait that I thought was never gonna be... Ed sounds killer again... KILLER. Alex is crushing, Wolfie is blowing the place up, and Dave is leading the charge... I am taking the whole summer off, calling my high school buds, and spending the summer at the lake partying. I hope Sammy jumps off a fucking cliff, that fucking piece of shit.

AND I HAVE A STRONG FEELING BEATS WORKIN' IS PUT OUT THE LIGHTS WITH A MAJORLY EPIC INTRO. AND SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS THEY JUST EXPRESS THE EXCITEMENT!!! SO MUCH HAPPINESS AND I HAVEN'T EVEN HEARD THE ALBUM YET!!! EXCELLENT!!! When I heard the Let's Get Rockin riff my jaw just dropped and flashed a massive grin at the same time hahaha. Chinatown sounds amazing. The awesome tapping and then Alex's double kick. HOW CAN HE STILL PLAY SO FAST AT 58 YEARS OLD! I struggle enduring that type of double kick and I'm only 16!!!! FUCK YEAH VAN HALEN ARE BACK!

I started listening to the clips then 'screeeeeech' I had to stop. I want to be able to sit down with the whole album and listen to it front to back like the good ol' days. I've been phoning my local record stores to see if any of them are getting the vinyl in on Feb 7, but I've had no such luck. I was really aiming for a throwback to 1985, a time where I could sit with the new record; just me, the turntable and it.

However, everything I've heard so far clip-wise is great. I haven't been this happy since.... I don't think ever. Thank you Van Halen!

Haven't been around this wonderful site for a while. I'm 58 from Toronto and have always believed in this band.
Holy shit, Batman, this is finally a great time to be a CVH fan. I'm 23 again. Can't add more excitement than what I read here. God Bless you believers.

I'm just disappointed there doesn't seem to be any lyrics about grapefruit, honeydew melon, burnt toast and bananas.

It's my birthday Feb 4th, so this really is the best "present". May have to take the whole week off!

Can't wait to hear the feedback from all of you.

Hey, if I recall correctly so far I've said that from what I've heard they have avoided the p word (although I feared that they - like pretty much every other 'reunion' act - would fall prey to it).


Perhaps I'll start using other pretentious words that begin with 'p'. First up: 'pathos'. Not sure I'll be able to get that in a CVH review, however :D

That's what I was thinking. Clips ended just when things were reving up !! I think we have a winner !! Some people will slam it for using old rifffs and songs, but so what !! It's their songs. I would rather have the original demo's released as a bonus disc remastered and the new song's all new stuff but fuck i'll take this any day. I'm starting to think the album title sounds a little weak compared to some of these heavy riff's and weird opening's !! But who care's if the tune's rock.

The night of Cafe Wha? when Dave was signing autographs out front, he told someone the album title. It struck me as very plain and straight forward, but just like the song Tattoo, it has grown on me. It's a mature title for sure. Remember all of the guesses? Full Steam Ahead and about a dozen or so ham-fisted train references. We're so silly.

Reminds me of "Don't Tell Me What Love Can Do". Don't hammer me too hard for that opinion...just a thinking out loud observation. Even if it is a Haggis leftover, it's going to sound MUCH better with Dave's lyrics and voice on the track. After all, it wouldn't be the first time Dave sang over a Van Hagar leftover (BOV1 tracks), and they turned out pretty damn good.

I love the album title... it's deep. To me, A Different Kind of Truth is what we would have known had the band never split. Therefore, we are now getting a different kind of truth, and the selective amnesia in a heartbeat will rid us of the Sam years, which won't be hard for those of us that have only heard what we've had to endure at the grocery store, lol. Can't rave about Wolf enough, and I'm grinning from ear to ear reading the posts by the same people that slammed the kid in 07/8. He replied to someone's tweet that he started playing guitar at 9, drums at 10, and bass at 15. That means he had only been playing for one year when he stood in front of us last time...that's freaking UNBELIEVABLE!!!

I hope on the tour, Uncle Al lets us hear him on drums a bit, that's his favourite. :beers8:

"She's the Woman" is going to melt faces. I've got some ass clown friends (musicians, too... mind you) that made up their minds already based on "Tattoo" (they're too f**king dumb to "get it"). From what I've heard of "Bullethead", "China Town" and "She's the Woman", they're going to have to beat a hasty retreat from Negative Town. Never mind "The Trouble With Never". Holy smokes Batman... did you hear that shit? Someone call the fire department! This place is going to burn down!

OK, more words now:

At first, I wasn't sure how I felt about using a bunch of old demos for the new record. I never felt it was plagiarism, because its their own stuff, but I didn't know how it would work. Hearing all of this now, though, I think it's absolutely fuckin' brilliant. So many bands try to go back and "recapture" the old sound. How many Stones albums in a row now do we hear that they are trying to make a "classic Stones sounding" record? There are some good efforts in there, but it always falls short.

But when you've been waiting 28 years and you've got an unreleased catalog like this...what a great move. Wow. Just fuckin' WOW!

I cant imagine if it had been any other way,like if Roth had never left.All of the years of looking for a new boot or watching these forums (Slawterhouse,DLRArmy,DDLR.com,Tormented Van Halen fans)etc,etc have added to the love I have for every thing that is DLR related.I often wonder if it would have truley been the same otherwise.

I think its really cool to be able to come to a place that is All Roth,All the time and has been from day one and see the same names and faces/avatars lol
and know that I wont be chastised for being a Roth fan (Im sure some of you guys can relate)...

Ive never talked to WARF one on one but felt like I had a friend present when he represented the Army at Cafe Wha? as ive been reading his posts on this site for the better part
of 10 years now.

Thanks Sarge and everyone involved over the years for providing me a place to get my Roth fix and keep up with current events in the Roth/VH world,but it wouldnt have
been the same at this place without all of the bullshit and shenanigans that went along with it...Its the people here that make the place and a GREAT place it is!!

Anyone else feel like Tattoo doesn't exactly fit on this album now? Talk about a Red Herring, that song set a tone that just stayed with that track.

BTW, I know I've heard a DLR Radio rendition of the Stay Frosty intro or something very similar to it. So i'm pretty sure that's Dave playing guitar on the intro. I wish I still had the recording, but I'm guessing you guys are already on it.

Good Point! The song is a "grower" but I get this feeling, the rest of the songs will have the ability to knock socks off right outta the gate.

Yeah it's almost certainly Dave on guitar and he will have wrote it too.

From what I could hear on the CSI show I think it may be one of the best songs on the album.

i wanna feel the flow of the whole album 5 or 6 times before commenting... i think VA said something weeks ago about having a commercial sounding song out there to maybe snag some new fans and some fence sitters(?)

but from all you guys comments it seems like the rest of the record is a gift for long standing hardcore CVH fans. could be wrong, haven't had a beer yet. :)

I dunno I think it was maybe just a bit of a mistake. Most of the stuff since on all the forums I've read have been much more positive about everything else.

I would have gone with Blood and Fire which I think is really special and commercial.

The track I thinking of was 79th and Sunset, it's a bit different, but seems to reinforce that Dave's playing style

As Is, Honeybaby, StayFrosty


From the samples and whatnot, someone pissed in Eddie's cheerios because that guy is on fuckin' fire on this CD.


It's just one slammin' track after the other.

Hell, everything to me sounds killer except maybe '"big trouble"...."river"... I might not be able to accept another song named "big river" i'll always think johnny cash.

that chorus on "you and your blues" is pretty epic

Here's an HQ Medley I made of the Canadian iTunes previews:

I left Blood and Fire and Tattoo out, but forgot to remove Trouble With Never, so that's in there.

Edit, this version works now.

Wow. This stuff is fantastic. I'm really impressed. "You and Your Blues" is probably my favorite so far. It's got a great hook, the classic harmonies and Dave manages to make blues cliches sound fresh.

Can a band put out a Greatest Hits album of new material? From the sounds of these longer clips, I'm thinking so. I am so blown away by these songs! Remember the line from Bull Durham, "Announce your presence with authority?" Well, there's a new Sheriff in town...same as the old one. The Mighty Van Halen! After hearing the full track of "The Trouble With Never" I didn't think it could get any better...but, (and I know this is knee jerk) this could end up being my all-time favorite VH album...just by virtue of some many awesome tunes!

It's gonna be a long week waiting for 2.7.2012!

Listened to the previews again. These harmonies are some of the best sounding in the entire VH history. Is it Wolfgang? Guess we'll know soon enough.

Yeah man, thats not it. Someone used the 1:30 sample (you can hear it start to fade) clip and spliced the first double kick riff over and over till the end. The clip I heard has a bunch of other cool twists and a solo section.

Big part of this album sounds like a direct follow-up to "Girl Gone Bad" and "Drop Dead Legs". For me it's the best direction Van Halen could take. I've always tried to imagine what would have happen if they hadn't split after "1984". Would they try something heavier and more thrashy than "Fair Warning"? It seems that's exactly what they did in ADKOT.
