After a couple of listens I think it sounds alright.
Especially like the guitar solo

after listening a few times, I really like this

Ed seems to be favoring that new Stealth Wolfgang

My only criticism ...

the lack of Micheal Anthony back up vocals doesn't give this the
true Van Halen sound

All in all, can't wait for the new album

I like it but need to hear it on CD quality and cranked through a real stereo instead of these cheap computer speakers here on my work computer. It has a nice groove and how refreshing to hear EVH with his chops back. I dig the long extended dive bomb and the fade out is pretty cool as well. It seems like a bit more of a modern sound with a dash of old school VH thrown in for good measure.

Yeah, I agree with that last part.

Eddie's back to more of a "crunch" sound rather than that "buzzy" sound he had going
in the mid to late 90's

And Dave is his usual quirky, nutty self. Which is why we love him.....I am looking forward to hearing this entire album as I suspect there's some good heavy rockers on it.

I think you guys will like the album if you are liking Tattoo. It is probably my least favorite tune that I have heard from the album. Not that it is bad, I just prefer the others for the rowdy factor. Tattoo was one of the songs that I first mentioned a couple of months ago.

Wolfie should grow his hair as soon he will be the only one with any.

So Canadian, are some of the other tunes a bit heavier and less "radio friendly?" I hope so.

The main riff reminds me of "Walk Away" by The James Gang.

I totaly agree with the lack of Michael Anthony backing vocals. He added so much to that band and I'm really torn if I should see them or not.

I know I'll end up going, but I would like to see them play more lesser known songs and fewer hits.

I'd love to hear DOA, Hang Em High, Little Guitars, Mean Street, Romeo Delight, Hear About it Later, to name a few.

Not bad but I hope some of the other songs have more edge to them. More important will be how Roth can sing them live. They drowned out his voice at the Club Wha show so I couldn't even hear how his chops were on the old songs.

EVH's guitar solo and outro solo sounds really good. Otherwise, it sounds more like a DLR solo tune. The background vox sorta suck, and definitely missing Mikey's contributions to the sound.

I find the video itself sort of bewildering. First, who broadcasts music videos anymore? But more than that, I'm sort of surprised at the low budget-ness of it all. Just standing on a concert stage lip syncing and not even giving it half an effort of pretending to actually be playing on stage. Just mildy surprised that this is what they would come up with for the video for VH's "comeback" or whatever.

I agree 100% about the lack of Micheal Anthony.

Definitely. Of the tunes, only one other was a slow song. The rest were mid to faster pace rockers. Don't expect an album full of Romeo Delight or you will be disappointed.

Funny, a few months ago, Sammy Hagar gave his opinion that a lot of these tunes were just going to be recycled old Dave era riffs, updated. Appears he's right on the money so far.

Here's Rolling Stone mentioning the new one, Tattoo, sounding like a 1977 song called Down In Flames.
Interesting that Tattoo also has EVH doing guitar volume swells on the outro, while Down In Flames starts with guitar volume swells.

And another supposed new track done at Cafe Wha?, She's The Woman, was from a Warner Brothers 1977 demo. Interestingly enough, the instrumental break from "Mean Streets" was lifted from this tune.

I think it sounds like something DLR would do on one of his lame solo albums. I love the early VH albums but IMO this song is poooo! I think people want the old VH back so bad they will take whatever they can get but this is a far cry from them in their prime.

Actually 75% of this song was crafted back in their salad days when they were creative.

A re-write of the lyrics, a chorus add (probably present day) no Anthony backing vocal, and recorded at 5150, not Sunset Recorders. Otherwise than that, its just about the same as the 1977 demo.

Its interesting to hear alot of the old VH demos, (they're all over You Tube), and other bits and pieces of music that EVH ended up using in the future projects.

The melody for "Right Now" released in 1992, was crafted in 1983, when EVH wrote the music and soundtrack for a teen film called "The Wild Life". Its included in the movie.

I think the song is good but not great. Much better IMO than any Roth solo stuff. If people are expecting the old Van Halen then they will never be satisfied because that ship sailed a long time ago. They are all older, have a new bass player, and Roth will never be able to match vocally what he did when he was younger with those unique high pitched yells and screams that made him famous.

I had the first 4 DLR solo albums & this cut could have made any of them except "Eat'em & Smile", that album kicked a$$ but it was all downhill. There is a reason why these were demos in '78 & never made the album, weak songs but people long for VH's past glory & want to blame Sammy for the lame tunes Eddie was writing when he was in the band. Someone hide the keyboard from Eddie!

Thats a lame opinion.
VH used all sorts of bits and pieces from those demos to craft various songs right up to "1984".

Voodoo Queen is the music for the verses of "Mean Streets", and the instumental break from that song came from demos of "She's The Woman", which is going to be on this new album, and sounds very much like old school VH.

You're saying on one hand, that all that early Van Halen stuff is great, yet some parts of it aren't good enough to use today, and then somehow throw Sammy into the mix?

Look the band wrote plenty of great music when Sam was in the band as well, but it was obviously 2 different styles.

I don't know what your agenda is here, but its not the first time musicians, or bands have reached back into old demos, even warmup exercises (like Slash used for Sweet Child Of Mine) to craft songs with, so why don't you calm down, and wait until they release the album before going nuclear on it.
