Van Halen's new album.

Going to a gig, going to another festival, or want to tell people about the awesome riff that you just worked out.

Van Halen's new album.

Postby Tea4One » Tue Feb 07, 2012 12:19 pm

'A Different Kind Of Truth'

Anyone listened to it yet?
How are you liking it?

I think it's a return to form. It's an awesome album, i'm honestly surprised at how good it is :lol:
Thank god for that, DLR's voice may not be as good as it used to be but it works somehow. It's really good, listen to it!

I actually didn't mind that song, surprisingly.

Hoping my copy will be waiting for me when I get home!
Apparently it has that early VH sound because most of the songs were written in the mid 70's and have been sitting around in the vaults ever since

It's a surprisingly good album.

Yeah it really is. Totally old Van Halen like, partially thanks to the fact it's from the vaults. Hopefully you enjoy it.

Gonna give it another spin later or tomorrow but sounds good so far

I listened to about half of Tattoo on Saturday, and thought it was shocking.

Listened to it today, along with the whole album, and really enjoyed it.

Exactly the same, it was just so boring and crap. I shall have to listen to the rest then.
