Some talented musicians often playing sophomoic/juvenile songs. All too often, more flash than substance. Fun on occasion, but hardly sustainable. Personally, I'll take Hagar over Roth any day. That supposed five octave range is only because of his screaming and theres a big gap between what he sings and what he screams, so theres a chunk of that range is missing.
The first Roth era is legitimately excellent stuff with consistent albums. Roth has a 5 1/2 octave range, so I don't get why people knock him for his vocal ability. Him and Eddie in their primes were the thunder. 1984, Women and Children First and their debut are great albums. All their songs then were messy and unfocused and sounded like they could collapse at any moment (but in a good way than only Van Halen could do).
Van Hagar had some good songs, but never any consistent good albums.
My favorite band at one point, VH will always have a place in my favorites, they had a great run with DLR with a string of classic albums on which they showed their ability to write great songs, reinvent themselves, and maintain consistently great musicianship. With DLR, they only had two bad albums (II, Diver Down)
Van Halen with DLRoth = 90
Van Hagar = 25

I am a huge fan of the original lineup. I believe their debut is one of the best albums of all time. Van Halen II, And Women and Children First have some great songs but I prefer the Fair Warning and Diver Down. With 1984 they blew up and broke up. They were very much of their time.
Van Halen is one of the most influential rock bands of their time. Of course that means without Van Halen there probably wouldn't have been that god awful hair metal scene throughout the 80's. However, I forgive them for that because I enjoy their work with Roth and a number of tracks from the Hagar era. Very talented band with a couple classic albums.
I agree with what you're saying, nutso42.
I'm new to Van Halen. I bought the albums from ITunes after my boyfriend played Different Kind of Truth. Loved it! Stay Frosty has been my most played song this year. So much fun!
It's true, Happymeal. Van Halen sounds so different with the 2nd singer. It's not like AC/DC. It's like if the Beatles fired John Lennon and hired Rod Stewart. Even if the Beatles kept the name like Van Halen did and still had hits, they wouldn't have been the Beatles.
Eddie and David Lee Roth have one of those special chemistries, like Mick and Keith or Plant and Page. I think it confuses people about Van Halen how they were two totally different bands. I think that's why a poster wrote they're misunderstood.
Van Halen is one of the most influential rock bands over. A lot of that credit is due to Eddie with his guitar tapping. He wasn't the first to do it, but he took it to an extreme that had never before been seen. The solos are out of this world... but those guitar chops are insane as well. Best album is definitely their debut.
My Rating does not include any thing Van Hagar
