5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have the boys back
Welcome back to 1977, well maybe not but it's still good to have something new that sounds as good as VH1. My favorites are Tattoo and Stay Frosty bringing back memories of You Really Got Me and Ice Cream Man. Enjoy this album from beginning to end.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK but not great
I bought this album in the week leading into the VH concert that was coming to town. Not a bad effort, but I haven't listened to it very much since the show. A few good songs, but nothing that I'd call a classic, or any songs that I figure I'll go back to in a years time. Good to hear what the guys are up to and how they sound in 2012, but not much more than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's awesome, Feb. 18 2012

Loved Tattoo when it came out, heavy bluesy rock (that some people just don't get) and got the album today and have to say it's full-on Van Halen, Eddie is ripping on the guitar, Alex is great on drums, Dave is great and Wolfie sounds great too, we all miss Mike but Wolfie is proving that he's worthy, even on the DVD, he can sing harmony great with his Dad and he is a solid player.. and the songs are great on the new CD, Stay Frosty is one of my favs, really heavy 12 bar blues with power, and lots of other great heavy tunes on it also. There is a reason it is Number 1 on the Billboard rock charts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has Ed and Dave done the impossible?, Feb. 19 2012

Yes it seems they have. Name any rock band that has been apart this long and starts off just where they left off. Well it just doesn't happen yet Ed and Dave seem able to keep doing it (before this in 1997). This album can be placed right between Women and children first and Fair warning with some Van Halen I mixed in as well. But still they provide a scent of "new" with songs like Honeybabysweetiedoll. Takes me back to the times where you would get a Halen record just to see what cool sounds Ed has come up with. Another reviewer said it best when he claimed Van Halen never sounded younger.
Pros:
all of the above, no filler songs, Ed and Dave sound best in the same band, New and old mixed together perfectly.

Cons: Dynamic compression a bit overblown on this record sounds muted/weird. Michael Anthony would have made the vocal harmonies on this record amazing as well as his presence is sorely missed. These 2 cons cannot let me give this record a perfect rating yet I really wanted to.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad attempt at being called a Rock band!, Feb. 25 2012

DLR is horrible. This attempt at an album by VH is sad and is by no means ROCK music. CHICKENFOOT is ROCK MUSIC, compare them together like I have and you have no choice but to agree unless you know nothing about music or have no taste. Sammy has twice the voice of David Lee Roth.
