Rated 5 out of 5★ by PhillyFrank They're back!!! I had fairly high expectations for this release, and I have to say the boys have exceeded all of them. This is a heavier and more aggressive album than I would have thought after so much time out of the game, but all the Dave swagger and Eddie's trademark guitar virtuosity is all there. This thing doesn't let up from beginning to end (although the first track and single "Tattoo" is probaby not the best representation of the album as the rest rocks much harder#. To those who love Michael Anthony #as do I), don't fret as Wolfie really holds it down on bass and the background vocals better than expected. This collection is a return to form for Van Halen, a sound that harkens back to they're VHI and VHII glory days but also brings something new to the table. 13 tracks of in your face rock, and a real return for rock icons that can bring about a kick in the pants to today's music industry. Buy it, if you've ever liked VH, any incarnation, you'll love this! 02/10/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Jimmypsp700 Great long awaited release! This CD rocks from start to finish! Most are hard rockers but there are some in there for the ladies too. This is reflective of the original VH with DLR and actually has some songs that were written in that era although all are new and original releases either as they were in the day or reworked for a more modern sound.Eddie rocks hard with his telltale lickity split guitar licks and Diamond Dave is as philosophical and bold as ever (cocky too)! The rest of the band holds up their end of the bargain as we would expect from AVH and newbie Wolfie. The last concert (2007) with this lineup was a first class Rocker and we're looking forward to the same from this yearâ€™s show!I highly recommend this for all VH fans and hard rock/ Big rock fans as well.I bought the Deluxe CD/DVD as well as the CD/T-shirt combo, both well worth it!Back to the Mean Streets of yesteryear. BravoRock on boys and girls!!! And Stay Frosty... 02/14/2012
