4.0 out of 5 stars The Dave & Eddie Show Rides Again!, 25 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: A Different Kind Of Truth (Audio CD)
For many Van Halen fans, there has only ever been one lead singer of the band, and that is David Lee Roth, and now finally reunited again on an album with guitar genius Eddie Van Halen, his exhuberance, intelligence and sense of humour once again have the perfect platform from which to entertain us all.

Now free from the earnest, MOR rock of the Sammy Hagar days, Van Halen are once again the best party in town, and ADKOT is brimming with big tunes, daft jokes and lyrics, and insane guitar wizardry. In short, it's everything you want form a classic Van Halen album.

Of the 13 tracks here, I reckon at least eight would grace any of Van Halen's best albums; You And Your Blues, Big River, She's A Woman and Blood and Fire all have stone cold killer hooks, whilst single Tattoo is a complete earworm, and Stay Frosty even outguns Ice Cream Man for blues on steroids. The rest of the songs are no mere filler, they keep the pot boiling nicely with some incredible playing and, as always, an entertaining lyric.

Drawing upon many old unused demos for a lot of the songs has proved to be a master stroke by the band. This new Van Halen album is no let down, in fact it's such an unexpected return to form and joy, that is hasn't been off my stereo since I bought it. Who'd have thought it??
