>>

>>
>>61589922

>>

>>
>>61589846

1. Physical Graffiti
2. Meddle
3. Sticky Fingers
4. Sgt. Peppers
5. Welcome to Sky Valley
6. Who's Next
7. Discipline
8. Superunknown
9. Definitely Maybe

14. Toys in the Attic
15. Comminqué
16. Heroes
17. Paranoid
18. A Night at the Opera
19. Songs for the Deaf
20. Fair Warning
>>
Anyone else feel that halen could have been so much more as a solo artist?
>>
>>61589846

>>
>>61590255

>highway to hell
>>
>>61590440
that's their last great album. So downhill pretty much.
Enjoy 1984 when you get to it, but go no further.
>>
>>61590673
Try and actually listen to the albums you post opinions on

You won't look so retarded that way
>>
>>61590698
but wait that's the first one, so only the 1st one and 1984?
>>
>implying highway to hell sucks

seconded
>>
>>61590726
>implying that all of the songs on that album don't sound the fucking same
>>
>Van Halen and all those other goofy, party Hard Rock bands from the 70s and 80s had more or less the exact same lyrical content as modern mainstream Rappers
>Yet the Hard Rock feels like 100% more heartfelt and musically creative

Why is this?
>>
>>61590763
Generally speaking, yeah those are the great albums. In between is hits + filler and a covers album.

Fair Warning has a reputation as a "heavier" or even "darker" release but i dont think van halen is that type of band where elitism is appropriate.

Nice meme

racism, kys
>>
>>61590911
okay cool, thanks anon. the thing that I liked the most was that it was fun, so for now I'll skip fair warning

any anon here likes kiss? I've only heard alive and that was nice, should I bother with anything else?
>>
>>61590996
this
>>
>>61589922
100% agree
>>
>>61590473
Also agreed. 3 or 4 good songs max. Most overrated popular rock band of the 70s.
>>
>>61591026
no please don't it's not worth it
>>
>>61590996
>>61591036
I listen to a lot of Hip Hop made by black artists, as well as black artists from other genres so that's not it.
>>
>>61591026
Destroyer. Love Gun.
>>
>>61591079
maybe because hip hop tends to not rely as heavily on melody so it doesn't trigger as much of an emotional response
>>
>>61591026
I wouldn't skip Fair Warning. It's a great rock record. If anything skip Women and Children first and Diver Down.
VHI>Fair Warning>1984>VHII>WaCF>Diver Down
>>
>>61591132
You could be on to something
>>
>>61591176
VHII > Women & Children First > VH > Fair Warning > Diver Down > 1984
>>
>>61591026
Kiss Alive I and Destroyer are really the only worth while albums they have and Destroyer is debatable. Kiss Alive I is a good album though
>>
>>61591202
At least we agree that Diver Down sucks.
>>
>>61591214
>>61591130
gonna check out destroyer, original release or the "resurrected" from 2012?
>>61591202
>>61591176
I'm just gonna go ahead and listen to all the Roth era records then
>>
>>61591249
It doesnt though. It's half amazing 10/10 songs and half absolute shit. It's worth hearing just for Hang Em High, The Full Bug, Little Guitars, and Where Have all the Good Times Gone? Some of their best material.

Where as Pretty Woman and the instrumentals are such shit.
>>
>>61591319
I haven't heard the resurrected so I can't help you there.
>>
>>61591319
The original for sure. Love Gun is pretty good too if you dig Destroyer
>>
>>61591428
well, I'm sure I can't go wrong with the original release. thanks for all the help anons
>>
>>61591479
Love Gun was the beginning of the end for them. It has a couple good cuts but a lot cringe on it.
>>
forgot to ask, I'm a huge weezer fan, is ace frehley's solo 1978 album worth checking out?
>>
>>61591599
i doubt it
>>
>>61591599
No.
>>
>>61591599
all of the solo albums are pretty bad
>>
Eruption is the reason I started playing music
>>
>>61589846
I like Van Hagar, AMA.
>>
The Man Who Sold The World
>>

Good taste anon
>>
>>61589922
fully agree
>>
>>61591026
Fair Warning has some of their best songs. do NOT skip
>>
>>61593179
what's wrong with you?
>>
>>61591319
yeah just listen to all of them. its definitely worth it and esp if you find out how eddie van halen managed to make all the sounds you'll hear
>>
>>61590812
>Night Prowler is the same as Beating Around the Bush

>>61590869
VH aren't niggers

>>61590911
Fair Warning is objectively the best VH album

>>61591026
>Skipping Fair Warning
Kiss is a meme

>>61594268
G.O.A.T. tbqh
>>
>>61590911
skipping fair warning is a travesty.
>>
>>61589846
Is anyone else bothered by the mixing of this album? I think having the guitar be only in the left channel was a horrible mistake.
>>
>>61591026
>>61590440

Just listen to all of them in a row, they're only 30 mins each
>>
>>61589846
>rock based
wtf senpai
>>
>>61594923
it sounds live, just like they intended with making the channels very distinct

personally, i like it
>>
>>61594923
No. It makes it more distinct and sound like it's live. If Eddie double tracked his guitars they would sound more like every other hard rock band of the time. This way you can also hear his incredible guitar playing more clearly. He is a very underrated rhythm guitarist.
