Van Halen is an American rock band formed in Pasadena, California, in 1972. From 1974 until 1985, the band comprised guitarist Eddie Van Halen, vocalist David Lee Roth, drummer Alex Van Halen, and bassist Michael Anthony.The band went on to become major stars, and by the early 1980s they were one of the most successful rock acts of the time. 1984 was their most successful album. The lead single, "Jump", became an international hit and their only single to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The following singles, "Panama" and "I'll Wait", both hit number 13 on the US charts. The album went on to sell over 12 million copies in the US alone. In 1985, the band replaced lead singer David Lee Roth with ex-Montrose lead vocalist Sammy Hagar. With Hagar, the group would release four US number-one albums over the course of 11 years. Hagar left the band in 1996 shortly before the release of the band's first greatest hits collection, Best Of – Volume I. Former Extreme frontman Gary Cherone was quickly recruited as lead singer to replace Hagar, and Van Halen III was released in 1998. Cherone left the band in frustration in 1999 after the tour due to the poor commercial performance of the album.Van Halen went on hiatus until 2003 when they reunited with Hagar for a worldwide tour. The reunited band released a second greatest hits collection the following year, The Best of Both Worlds. Like Volume I before it, The Best of Both Worlds included material from both the Roth and Hagar eras but omitted any Cherone era tracks. The album featured three brand new tracks recorded by the reunited band, two of which were released as singles. Hagar again left Van Halen in 2005 and in 2006, Roth returned as lead vocalist for their highest-grossing tour, and one of the highest-grossing tours of that year. Anthony was not invited to participate in the tour and was essentially fired from the band, replaced by Wolfgang Van Halen, Eddie's son. In 2012, the band released the commercially and critically successful, A Different Kind of Truth, with Roth as lead vocalist. According to the RIAA, Van Halen is the 19th-best-selling band/artist in United States history, selling 56 million albums in the U.S.They were also revealed at number 4 on the Billboard's top money makers list in 2013.Van Halen is one of only five rock bands that have had two studio albums sell more than 10 million copies in the U.S.Additionally, Van Halen charted the most number-one hits in the history of Billboard 's Mainstream Rock chart and they are one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 80 million records.Van Halen achieved worldwide fame for their many popular songs and larger-than-life stage performances; unfortunately, they also became known for the drama surrounding the departures of former members. Controversy surrounded the band following the exits of Roth, Hagar, and Anthony; this controversy often included numerous conflicting press statements between the former members and the band. In 2007, Van Halen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.VH1 ranked them 7th on their list of the top 100 hard rock artists of all time.
"A Different Kind Of Truth" is VAN HALEN’s first album with David Lee Roth at the microphone in nearly 30 years marking a true return of the ’80s hard rock overlords, a screaming triumph for the feathered-hair dreamers who held on through a cinematically epic series of lineup changes, band implosions and shifting tides of musical fashion.The album was released in Japan on a Limited SHM-CD Deluxe Edition including a bonus DVD with acoustic versions of new songs and old tunes, including "Beautiful Girls" and "Panama."Yes, classic Van Halen is back, and we’re not faced with a group of veterans simply trying to make sounds that their old selves would respect.Most of the "A Different Kind Of Truth" songs were written in the earlier years of the band, but 'fresh' is the operative word here. Many rock veterans are unable to recapture their signature sound, and while Van Halen may have cheated by raiding their vaults, who really cares when an idea first came to fruition as long as it kicks our asses?However there's newly composed tracks as opener "Tattoo". The choice this cool song as the lead single may have more to do with its peacocking pop factor than anything else, because despite being the opener it isn't the standout track on this really good album.Immediately, "She’s The Woman" taps into the ebullient ’80s spirit, a strong connection to a nostalgia-free strut and sexy, slick riffage – complete with a classic VH solo. A gem from the archives, the track appeared on a 1976 demo the band cut with Gene Simmons on production.On "You And Your Blues" there’s a sick little changeup at the two-minute mark, a serpentine acceleration before another screaming solo. Truly, the six-string snobs will have their hands full here, as Eddie brings an airtight assault of fretwork that runs flush with the original glory days.Van Halen’s legendary tapping channels Beethoven for just a flash to kick off a furiously sprinting "China Town," and the neckbreaker’s not alone in its frantic pace or celebratory energy.The wicked ride back to their youth continues on "Bullethead", and anyone who thought Eddie and Dave wouldn't be able to deliver again can eat their words immediately after playing this scorcher, a fast-funk hard rocker with enough intensity to make the two-and-a-half minutes pass like a heartbeat.This is the Van Halen I remember!Eddie’s skittering riff carries us through the labyrinthian "As Is" with a tenacious confidence. When the full-speed ahead guitar riff kicked in together with a massive drumming, the band rocks. Roth even decided to yammer away in 'Hot For Teacher' fashion in a couple spots.After going out with the 1984 influenced "The Trouble With Never", "Outta Space" continues the full-steam ahead onslaught while "Stay Frosty" comes across as 'Ice Cream Man' part two with its bar-brawl swagger jam.The six classic late ’70s and early ’80s records from the first Roth-fronted lineup of the group set an imposing bar for any Van Halen reunion album.After all the years of traveling separate paths through creative growth and member changes, and without original bassist Michael Anthony, it’s very impressive how well Eddie, Alex and David have re-connected with each other on "A Different Kind Of Truth".This album is an evidence that a band can endure every cliche in the book and return with the right focus, obsessed dedication and mojo, to a sweet spot of rejuvenation – one that holds the hand of nostalgia but doesn’t go for the full embrace, leaning instead, wisely, toward evolution.It has been said this Japanese SHM-CD sound much better (check the audiophile opinion here) but sadly this LTD Japan Limited Edition with bonus tracks seems out of print.
