A Different Kind Of Truth

Is this the greatest comeback in Rock N Roll history?


50+ year olds are not supposed to play like this!

Whilst other dinosaur acts take the easy listening route and head towards mainstream markets, Van Halen have done what they always do. Rock out hard and fast.

Outstanding contributions from all the players. Alex is a beast on the kit, playing for the song when required and then beating his kit to death when necessary. Young Wolfgang has the gift of the VH brothers and great to hear the funky bass high in the mix.

Roth is back. His voice might be limited but lets face it...he's an entertainer and the lyrics shine. As he croons mid song "told ya I'd be back, say you missed me, say it like you mean it!"

What can be said about Eddie Van Halen that hasn't already been said. He's got the fire in his belly again and he's to prove a point. The greatest living Rock N Roll guitarist plain and simple. All the technique in the world but with a point of difference. He can write rock riffs that melt your face and are melodic for the song. More shining examples of his wall of sound, rhythm and playing lead simultaneously.

Welcome back boys. You have captured lightening in a bottle once again. Add this to the original 6-pack. Van Halen are about to save Rock for the second time.

Worth the wait

I bought this album a week ago and I've listened to it about twice a day since then. Right from the outset you know its going to be good and while Tattoo may not be the strongest track on the album it's a taster for what's in store. I confess to being a huge fan of David Lee Roth, having bought everything that he produced in the 22 year or so hiatus and I've always believed that Van Halen without DLR is a bit like a Big Mac without the burger. Don't get me wrong, I have huge respect for Sammy Hagar and 5150 is still a great album but Van Halen were never the same without Dave. With tracks such as She's the Woman, Bullethead and Blood & Fire, A Different Kind Of Truth harks back to VH1 and VH2 with a stripped down rawness that seemed to lack during the years that Dave was absent. The sound is fantastic and unmistakably Van Halen, so with tongue firmly in check and Mr Roth back at the controls, sit back and enjoy the ride.

highly recommended

ADKOT was the first VH album I've brought since 5150. The open track (tattoo) is fantastic as is the rest of the album. ADKOT has re-vitalised my interest in VH and DLR solo career. I would not only highly recommend ADKOT but diamond daves solo albums, especially eat n and smile!
itunes need to make available the DLR band though!

With their 1978 eponymous debut, Van Halen simultaneously rewrote the rules of rock guitar and hard rock in general. Guitarist Eddie Van Halen redefined what the electric guitar could do, developing a blindingly fast technique with a variety of self-taught two-handed tapping, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and effects that mimicked the sounds of machines and animals. It was wildly inventive and over the top, equaled only by vocalist David Lee Roth, who brought the role of a metal singer to near-performance...
