Cream always rises to the top: Van Halen’s A Different Kind of Truth

Recently in a fit of nostalgia — or maybe it was because I happened to catch David Lee Roth on Jay Mohr‘s podcast — I bought last year’s Van Halen A Different Kind of Truth. Plus, what the hell — I’ve already got the rest of the Van Halen catalog (and the David Lee Roth solo catalog, for that matter)…

Wow! This is one hell of an album — “A Different Kind of Truth” is undeniably the best Van Halen album in over two decades*, and arguably the best since 1981’s “Fair Warning.”**

Oh, and speaking of podcasts, check out David Lee Roth’s podcast The Roth Show; it’s really great!

yeah, in a minute…
* Yeah, I know it’s the only original Van Halen album in fourteen years, but you know what I mean…
** Or at least 1984’s “1984.”
