ha so I finally got to listen to the entire cd, on a stereo, very loud. I gotta say that I am very impressed. It seems they did the impossible by sounding like both "old VH" and sounding modern at the same time. Does it sound like VHI? no. does it sound like if VHI was recorded in 2012, yes! Dave is unmistakably Dave, Alex still grooves like no one else can. Wolfgang's bass sound is immense and plays inside and out of eddies parts wonderfully. And Ed seems to be in top shape as well. Tones are alot heavier than in the past. Some parts are downright SLUDGE but it still sounds like VH and that's what counts. Kudos to them for not resting on their laurels and just recording a throwback album that would get them sales just because of nostalgia. If reworking old demos rubs you wrong, there is still a whole albums worth of new material for you to check out. This is VH sticking to their guns and making an album that is relevant in 2012 because it kicks ass and not just because it's VH putting something out again. Everyone should at least check this cd out. The whole thing, NOT samples on youtube.
