    I like how the lyrics and vocal melody have been changed, but the thing that bothers me the most about this one is the strained vocals and how Dave is singing out of his range...about the only song on the album, from the clips I've heard so far, that he does this on.

    Hmmm, Dave is doing the out of range thing a little here.. At least it's buried. To be honest, it's no different than what bass player would be doing.

    Ahhh the "new octave" is back. Well, every track I have heard so far besides this is KICKASS.
    You can't win them all, but I'll listen to the whole song to judge.

    This is the worst on the album...

    Sounds like it should be on A Little Ain't Enough...

    I love this tune. That distorted bass part with the guitar solo is sick!! Reminds me of the end jam out to Drop Dead Legs vibe.

    This is the song that I wouldn't share with anyone when discussing new Van Halen...

    The oxycontin meets helium vocals is the same high range crap that nobody around here liked when Dave first started doing it on ALAE...

    Although he sings in the high register better than he used to, it's better he keep it to a minimum...

    The jamming in the song is cool as anything on the album, but the MTV theme song sounding riff sounds way too sleeze rockish and dated...

    Another one for the cutting room floor...

    Well cut it then.

    This is the 21st century there is absolutely zero stopping you.

    I can't understand this ridiculously prehistoric attitude people have saying that an album should have less songs. Maybe in the olden times of LPs that made some sense but not now, you want as much output to choose from as possible.

    With how cheap storage memory is now, we can really work their asses off! Hell, if you aren't careful you could drop several gigabites into your morning cereal bowl eat them and not know it.

    I respect and enjoy reading Elvis' posts and opinions, but I have to disagree on 'Beats Workin'... I think it has tons of swagger and the chorus carries the song for me, but I will admit... it could have been better with a little more attention to the lyrics and melody lines in the verses.

    I think the album fades 5% at the end but that's absolutely normal.

    As I've said before 49 minutes of music v 15?

    I am with Elvis...I just cringe at the beginning.

    But...the songs smooths out and the chorus is catchy...very catchy.

    i'd like to think that the placement of Beats Workin' at the end of the disc is kind of a message. you know, a "in the past we had our issues, but this project wasn't so bad" type of thing. maybe summing up their feelings toward each other.

    or i could be reading way too far into it.

    Dave's take on Celebutards...
    Hey... as long as you generate pageviews for the bloggers you can make a couple a grand for attending a party in Vega$$ or doing a vapid un-reality show (see Lohan, Kardassian, et al)
    Beats fuckin Workin' baby!

    The main riff in this is delivered signed and sealed and rock fuckin' solid. Yeah Dave is getting up there in his register but it works. This is the best of the 77 songs on the album in my mind. I don't usually pay attention to the lyrics in depth but if this is a lamentation on the paris hiltons of the world then that makes it even better. I love how this album really feels like what it should be: Van Halen in 2012.

    It took a weekend and some serious speakers and hash to get me to understand this album but I'm gettin' it now and I'm lovin' it. Leave it elvis to cuntplain. He's an expert on heavy metal ya know!

    Oh elvis I can't hate on you too much right now. This album is totally making my weekend. And I agree somewhat on your take in that I doubt we'll hear this one live.

    Great music. Dave is a little off for me at the start but I love it.

    One of my fave tunes at the moment ,love Wolfs bass breakdown in the middle. This tune has summer time written all over it.

    Should be the song they play last at each show... instead of Jump or anything else.

    This tune is the one that makes me feel like the VH club days. Dave singing a little too high, but what the hell - it still seems to work for me. They should totally include this in the set - have it be the final number (I won't complain if they drop Jump). A catchy chorus - a feel-good vibe without the forced sentimental crap from the Van Hagar plague - this is what VH is all about. I love this track way more than She's The Woman. Just goes to show that they could play about 9 or 10 tracks off ADKOT on this tour and totally get away with it. I, for one, wish they would. Judging by the set-lists so far, that ain't going to happen - but this is the tour to shove it in people's faces and say: "We're back. Here's what we got. Deal with it!" This tune is one of 'em. If nothing else besides 'summertime' sums up classic Van Halen, it's the philosophy: "well...it beats workin'!"
