    This collection of southern boys are not the most original band in the world. They’ll never be accused of being the most musically gifted fellas in the world. Certainly, no one will ever listen to them and think, “wow, that’s really cutting edge music”. To the contrary though, release in and release out, the same thought comes to mind

    Sequels to albums, at least in my listening experience, are generally poor. The two that immediately jump to mind for me are Rob Zombie’s HELLBELLY DELUXE 2 and Meat Loaf’s BAT OUT OF HELL 2. Both releases were pretty lame, and garnered attention solely because they were named after much more historic releases in their creator’s career.

Says VHND: "A fun and nasty rocker with a synchronized guitar/bass intro that nearly knocks you cold, 'She's The Woman' is an instant reminder that Van Halen can still work the heavy bag. This tune is one of six new songs that originated from older material from the seventies and is one of the most prototypical VH songs on the album. The driving riff is a cross between 'Mean Street' and 'Outta Love Again' and could have easily found a comfortable home on any early DLR-era material."

A Different Kind of Truth marks the first original Van Halen studio album with Roth on the mic since 1984.
