Mammoth WVH

Recommended Posts

Two albums dropped here today; Wolfgang Van Halen's 'Mammorth WVH' and another from past Chez NJ house favourite Garbage, with 'No Gods, No Masters'.

The Garbage album is just awful.  The Wolfie album has been on rotation since 9.00am...4.5/5.0.  it's a great shame that these fanboys just want another Van Halen type album, which this isn't; it's just a great slab of modern AOR.  Production is top notch.

I put in the album titles. Soz.

I'll try and check the WVH album out. You could clearly tell he was talented on the last VH album. 

 

I am a massive Roth era VH fanboy but I wouldn't want WVH album to sound like VH. It would be difficult for me it to anyway as EVH and DLR are one offs.

Viz Garbage their debut is easily their best. 2.0 is OK but not as good as it's rep suggests while Bleed Like Me is the much better than its general rating. Disappointed with both Not Your Kind of People and Strange Little Birds

I've never heard of Mamoth WVH, but just checked the album out on Spotify, on my phone. Two things struck me: excellent album cover, the sort you would be excited to walk out of the shop with, hoping the music would be good too; 10s of the first track says there is no point in playing this on the phone so I'll have to get up and play it properly loud.

Thanks for the heads-up. 👍🤘

Sat in my new Stressless chair with an empty house playing Mammoth WVH on Spotify right now - a rare moment of me time on a Saturday. First impressions are that i really like it - good songwriting and he really has his own identity going on
