anyone get this album? this is literally the worst album hagar has done either solo or with montrose or van halen. every song sounds like a throwaway track from one of his albums he released over the last 10 years. 2 songs "psycho vertigo" and "peephole" really are leftovers. they were part of the PLANET US project that never made an album but they are the 2 best tunes on the album. theres a cover of the beastie boys "fight for your right to party' which is better when sammy does it live. to top it all off the album is less than 45 minutes long and only has 10 songs but the last song is a live acustic version of the van halen songs "dreams/cabo wabo". download "peephole", "psycho vertigo" and maybe a track called "loud" which sounds like a leftover track from the 70's but it isn't even written by hagar.

overall this is the biggest disappointment of 2008

I used to buy every Hagar product that came down the pike, but that was a long time ago. I own Nine on a Ten Scale, Sammy Hagar ('77 Red Album), Musical Chairs, All Night Long, Street Machine, Danger Zone, Rematch,
Standing Hampton, Three Lock Box, Live 1980 and VOA. I kind of stopped there. Saw him a couple of times with Van Halen (1986 & 2004). His subsequent solo stuff I'ved heard bits and pieces of, but I feel his best period was 1976-1985. I also own the 2 Montrose albums he's on- Montrose and Paper Money. I don't find too much of his latter day solo stuff of much interest, based on what I heard.

I heard he was recording with Satriani, Chad Smith and Michael Anthony. That could be good stuff.

But I'm in agreement, his best era was the mid to late 70s and the early 80s. A few good Van Hagar tracks too but I have zero interest in his solo career now. He's becoming a cartoon character of his former self with these tunes.

I did see Sammy headline a double bill with Krokus around 1984 at the halfhouse "intimate" Omni. Very fun show. I also saw him in 1985 & 1987 with Van Halen. One other time he came on stage for an hour at his Cabo Wabo club in Cabo (with Chad Smith). That was also a blast.

Gary Phil probably had a good bit to do with Sammy's solo success. He's been with Boston, since Sammy joined VH.

his album from 2002 NOT4SALE is one of his best solo ever imo. out of his newer stuff marching to mars and ten13 are pretty good. other than that its hit and miss

yeah he's recording with those 3 guys. i'm hoping its really good. maybe the record company signed sammy and this supergroup and when the album wasn't completed this year (which sammy at first said it would be) the record company asked sammy for an album and all he had was a few tunes which explains the cover and live stuff and overall rushed sound of the album

Bummer. I've always liked Hagar. Happy-Go-Lucky party boy! Poundcake is one of my all-time fave VH songs.

I did not even know he had a new one out till latre last week. I have always enjoyed his stuff. I liked all of his post VH stuff up until thelast one, I think called Living It Up. That was pretty bad I thought, a poor mans versionof Jummy Buffet wh I can't stand anywyas.
I have not heard to much good about it, I would not mind hearing it though just to see.

I heard about that Satriani,Anthony and Chad Smith thing awhile back but nothing recently. That could either be good or bad I think.

livin it up is good for a change of pace but the other 4 solo albums he released before it are miles better.

He would have made a GREAT game-show host too. lol

I never pass up a chance to see Sammy live but I only own one album of his solo stuff and it's a hits collection.

He's one of the best front-men in the history of rock and roll and after Roth's drag-queen revue on last years V-H tour, Sammy's the best front-man Van Halen ever had.
