This album is highly under-rated. Yes for the most part it is a lousy album, but it does have a few awesome songs on it. "From Afar" and "Year to the Day" are my favourites. Those two songs are so emotionally charged it sends shivers down my spine. I know that I am one of few people who think that this is a decent album but nuts to the rest of you.

This is more or less a solo Eddie Vna Halen record. Michael Anthony does not play bass on this one. Eddie does all work except the drums. Some good music, but pretty poor as compared to 'Balance'

Well, now there is a VH album worse than Diver Down. Maybe buy it if it's in the bargain bin. Use it for a paper weight or let someone else hear it and tell'em it's you from your high school days!

This is a very very bad album. Cherone's voice is just sick. The cool synthesizers are replaced by boring pianos, the guitar is way too distorted, the tracks are uninspired. If you want Van Halen, they have like ten other cd's that blow everything else away, so get some of them. Don't get a bad impression of this true legend by this one crappy cd. Even the newer tracks from the greatest hits cd are better than this.

The first and last (hopefully) VH album with Gary Cherone is by far their worst and a sad inclusion on their discography. Eddie's BROWN sound is replaced by weak distant sounding guitars. The 1 rating is far too high: -10 is more like it there's nothing else to say but Don't buy this piece of garbage
