Don’t shoot the messenger, and try to keep the discussion civil, please. :)

Not too far off from what I would think as well, but obviously for me, I don’t rate 5150 that highly and certainly wouldn’t rate it higher than ADOKT, but that’s just me. The top 5 are all Dave era? I’m on board with that. :)

Their ranking:
12. III
11. Balance
10. FUCK
09. ADKOT
08. OU812
07. Diver Down
06. 5150
05. Van Halen II
04. WACF
03. Fair Warning
02. 1984
01. Van Halen

I would have had Diver Down and OU812 alot further down and move the FUCK album up to seven, at least

Pretty hard to lock down as it can change from day to day. Overall, for me, I’m usually at something like:

1) Van Halen
2) Fair Warning
3) Diver Down
4) Women & Children First
5) 1984
6) Van Halen II
7) 5150
8) OU812

That’s it. However, the “scores” would all be close, in the 9.5 to 10 range for the Top 6 and 8 or so for the last two.

The top five or so seem fairly consistent. I would move Balance farther up the list. I think it’s one of the better Hagar era albums. Not as many hits I guess, but more guitar heavy.
