    I have been completely un-impressed with Tattoo and Stay Frosty. Its Time ! provided a full track link to Trouble with never , its right there in front of the listener that DLR is not what he was vocally, but y`know what, on a track like Trouble, it doesnt matter as its got the swing back and you can shake your ass along with it. Tattoo is a slow burner, it grows on listeners, Stay Frosty is kind of embarrassing and I think VH shoulda binned this one for sure.

    If Trouble is a template for what VH will sound like on the rest of the album, then it will kick ass. Its nice to be excited about a forthcoming release , im hoping for upbeat songs that i can turn way up in my car and feel like the teen again that I once was.

    The breakdown in that song is balls. I was over Dave's "old man croaky voice" thing with "Slam Dunk", now it's practically all he can do.

    It actually sounds like something Extreme would do more then VH. Ed needs to lay off the Wha and back to the phase 90.

    I havent checked, but are VH tuning to e flat ? It occurrs to me that DLR is struggling with top end range and that maybe the band should detune a bit more to make range more accessible for him.

    Why don't you just play the old stuff?

    As one gets older, trying to feel like a teen again should be avoided as much as possible.

    It's got something to do with having to eventually act your age.
