I didn't think the 2 Sabbath tracks on Reunion were their best either. But the 2 tracks Van Halen did in 1996 were better than anything done by Van Hagar or David Lee Roth solo in the previous 11 years. And I believe their new album will be every bit as good as those songs were.


Choke, Gasp, Choke....

Dude. I know opinion's are like assholes and everyone's got one....but you might need to whipe! You sounds like it needs a washing!

I'll give you Me Wise Magic, as a very good song -- rivaling (a very small) some of the Hagar era material....but to say that it's better than anything done with Sammy? You're smokin crack!

I wont even go there, with "Cant get that stuff no more".....pure shite!!! It's a very wide known fact that Roth had more trouble singing those two songs, than Sammy had on all of his VH albums. Me Wise Magic and Cant Get That Stuff were recorded with literally hundreds of vocal takes. Thankfully, Eddie and Co were able to piece together a vocal performance with the parts they had. I don't know about you....but cheating in the studio usually get's you a pretty mediocre song. How about when you finally see the band live and the guy cant sing the parts. If he couldn't hack it in a room by himself, You think he's gonna even come close, when he's running around and doing his stupid leg kicks and splits.

David Lee Roth can't sing, cant write music, and with Van Halen -- he's no better. Sammy is an accomplished vocalist and a damn good songwriter -- and he can sing a song in a take or two. Having said that, I dont care who you prefer. But if you're going to make silly statements like "Those 2 songs are better than..." you should probably get burned for it.

BTW, The Sammy era van halen was more successful on tour, in sales and in merchandising. The only thing I'll give Van Roth is nostalgia. The only one that mattered anyway, was Eddie. It was all about Eddie. Not Roth. That's why it didn't work in 1984. That's why it didn't work in 1996. and that's why it wont work in 2000-1.
