Okay, I had pretty much written this album off after I heard Tattoo. That song just crushed any hopes for me. I mentioned liking some of the samples, but that wasn't enough to get me to check it out immediately. Well, in your review you brought up some good points, namely that most of the singles Van Halen has released are the worst songs on the album. So I'm listening to the album now. Holy shit. This is a goddamn comeback! Now it should be noted that more than half the songs on the album are reworked old songs, but still, I'm really enjoying it. And one of my favorites, China Town, isn't an old song, so that's pretty surprising. Anyway, I'm a lot more excited about seeing them live now!
