Yeah "III" was...well, it was weird!! That is the best way to descibe it for me. Eddie, Alex, Michael, and add Gary Cherone? How could it not be great? But it wasn't very good at all, was it? But I made the mistake of buying it "unheard".
The thing about that album that was the weirdest...was the production!! You know they had plenty of studio time to make it sound good, but it was a terrible sounding record! I'm not even talking about the average (at best!) songs, but just the over-all production was just bad! Very, very weird record.
Just take my word for it! It sounds like its some independent band that had a few thousand
dollars, or just a couple of hours to record it. The guitar sounds crummy, the vocals sound crummy...just a bad job altogether.
That's right. I've said it before: As far as I'm concern, it's not really Van Halen without Anthony.
And as I read it, Tremonti said it was incredible, that he's one of the few people, who have heard the music. Not, that the MUSIC was incredible.
If it's great, I'll buy it of course, but why should they make a great record in 2011?? Why now and not before???? I'm sure it was an intention that III should be a great record. And what about Roth. Does he still drive an ambulance as his "daytime job"? I don't think, there's any heart in it anymore. There's no hunger, and therefore the album IF there's a record, will probably suck. I'll hope, they'll prove me wrong!!
