"Keyboard laden" is the only factual thing you wrote, and "lyrically childish" describes the majority of Roth-era Van Halen lyrics.

Yeah but there's childish cool like Everybody Wants Some and then there'e childish cheeseball like I'll Wait. To each his own. If u like that one I'm sure you're a fan of Jump too. Both songs are 2 of my least favorite personally.

Funny I was never really a fan of Women in Love but listened to it today and really liked it. It's always cool revisiting old songs with a fresh ear and growing a new appreciation for them.

Cheese is cheese, and David Lee Roth = a steaming, molten river of it. No two ways around it. I love I'll Wait, and I think Jump is a good song, but I don't ever need to hear it again. If I'm listening to Roth Van Halen, I prefer stuff like Atomic Punk, Little Guitars, Mean Street, and Light Up the Sky. Indeed, to each his own.

Some of my favorites too. I can say I like I'll Wait but would have left to beat traffic during Jump if I had my way at the last tour.
