O.K. Let’s be REAL honest. Yes,this is a decent compilation. Yes you get all the greats here. Yes,it’s missing a few here and there (but they are not going to put everything on there right??Because then you won’t go out and buy all the other albums if you haven’t already)But they WILL get you to buy the same material over and over again as this double disc clearly displays.
TRUTH BE KNOWN…WE “DESERVED” A VAN HALEN: BEST OF VOLUME 2 !!!
Every fan ran out to by Volume 1 in ‘96 that featured the two new David Lee Roth tracks. It would have been pefect to have a Volume 2 all these years later with Sammy back at the helm to compliment that first edition. BUT NO!!!
You want a worth wild track list for a BEST OF VOLUME 2 mix (that is keeping the tradition of VOLUME 1) Here it is:
1. YOU REALLY GOT ME
2. JAMIES CRYIN’
3. FEEL YOUR LOVE TONIGHT (or even I’M THE ONE)
4. SOMEBODY GET ME A DOCTOR (if you prefer BEAUTIFUL GIRLS fine)
5. EVERYBODY WANTS SOME!!
6. MEAN STREET
7. LITTLE GUITARS (or if you love the covers PRETTY WOMAN,or DANCING IN THE STREET)
8. HOT FOR TEACHER
9. I’LL WAIT
10. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
11. LOVE WALKS IN
12. FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED (or FEELS SO GOOD or CABO WABO, but this was the hit)
14. TOP OF THE WORLD
15. NOT ENOUGH
16. WITHOUT YOU (should at least give Gary one track!)
17. IT’S ABOUT TIME (new track)
18. UP FOR BREAKFAST (new track)
19. LEARNING TO SEE (new track)
One final message to the real VH fans,borrow this double disc from somebody just for the 3 new tracks and make your own BEST OF VOLUME 2,which is what the real VH fams deserved. Not getting ripped off for all the same material again! You probably have all the original albums,therefor been putting money in the VH boys pockets for years. ITS’ ABOUT TIME you didn’t!
