    1. Beat's Workin'
    I'm shocked that I don't see this tune mentioned much here, or in review I've read. The term "beat's workin'" sounds like they are summing up their career. THE CLASSIC on this record.

    2. She's the Woman
    Hard grooving funk.

    3. Stay Frosty
    Just rips along.

    4. Tattoo
    The opening melodic line just bursts out of the speakers, and the whole tune is a new flavor. Way underrated, maybe it's some kind of psychological trick, like none of the hardcore fans wanna like the single. Fuck ya', it rocks!

    5. Big River
    Nice proggy VH!

    6. You And Your Blues

    The rest of the tunes (all very good!) except...

    12. As Is
    Meh

    13. China Town
    The only tune I dislike.


    (Every tune gets better the more I listen though, so I keep updating this...)

    I think the record falls just after VH II as the 5th best, over Diver Down and 1984. I gotta mention how great Alex plays. The double-bass licks he slips in (no, not on the obviously double bass driven stuff like "China Town") are really nice and tasty, not "show off" at all. He is a master, and his playing appears to be better than ever.

    It can't be "Van Halen" without Roth, any more than it can be "Van Halen" without Eddie.

    Way too soon for me to say right now.
    Though: honeybabysweetiedoll is way better than expected and is rising to the top.
    She's the Woman, Blood and Fire, and Chinatown are big for me.
    Stay Frosty, which I dismised (largely) in the samples sounds way better when you hear the whole thing!

    Come on Dan, how are we supposed to rank the disc on day one or two? So far B&F, Frosty and Y&YB along with Honey are at the top. It will take me weeks before this disc has really sunk in. I need to get all the lyrics memorized before we can rank 'em. I've got a trip to Illi coming up Thurs/Fri. I'll have a better feel when I get home.

    Stay Frosty Now,
    Doc
