    Why do I just like the tone of F.U.C.K. Better than a Different Kind of Truth - Tattoo?

    I really want to like the new VH, but it's not growing on me. Am I the only one?

    I just think the tone on Runaround is killer! I love cranking it in the car.

    I'm not into the Sammy vs DLR crap either. I like the music from both, but this new song is (IMO) mediocre. That said, I will still buy the new album and also just bought tickets for the show.

    I didn't realize the new album had been released.

    Hasn't been released is right. I'm talking more about the two songs Tattoo and She's the Woman. To me they lack the sound of F.U.C.K. And Balance. Even Me Wise Magic had better tone.

    I'm lukewarm at best on "Carnal..."

    but this is really a good performance

    I don't think tone can help at this point. I think now its all about making cash on a huge tour. The tramp stamp song sounded pretty uninspired to me.

    I'm just going to wait until I hear the whole record before I pass any kind of judgement.

    Yes, I cant wait to hear the whole thing, but the tone then just seemed more progressive?

    Again I thought the tone was there with "Me Wise Magic". Not feeling it on the new releases.

    That was good, classic VH. Not really diggin' the new stuff that I've heard so far. Wolfie's bass playing is the best thing about it IMO.

    Umm.. The new studio version of She's the women has not been released yet to my knowledge only Tattoo. That being said its one track where the guitar isn't really much of the high point of the song anyway. When the record comes out in two weeks hopefully there will be some isolated guitar parts throughout so we can dissect/criticize the tone just as we like to do here on TGP.

    Great performance!!!

    There's a good chance that M.A. got kicked out of the band just for that outfit alone!!! :omg

    Man, that takes me right back. I distinctly remember watching that one in my living room when I was in high school.

    Dave or Sammy, doesn't matter - I'm a VH fan. I dig 'em both for different reasons.

    Great band, great performances, great tunes.

    Fair enough. I just don't remember so much hate on these albums when they were newer. Of course, there wasn't an interw3b yet.

    Too early for me too say, there were some really good tones on FU** but I only heard a touch of the new one.

    I'm going to step out on a ledge here....

    I like a great deal of Sammy Hagar era Van Halen. :hide I also like the David Lee Roth stuff. I'll pass on Gary Cherone. I'll also pass on the Asian guy who replaced Steve Perry and the guy before him who replaced Steve Perry. :D

    It's like those last couple years where Jordan played for the Wizards. As much as we all loved to watch him play, it just wasn't pretty. Sometimes rockers just need to know when to hang it up (I'm talking to you Axl and Mick!). Some guys still have it (Roger Daltry, Paul Rodgers) and some guys don't.

    I personally like the guys who replaced Steve Perry because it teaches singers a dang 'ol lesson that they're not as untouchable as they might think. :p
