I think you said it best when you said that Diver Down is the ultimate 'Party Album' which is exactly how I described it in my review and I STILL stand by that statement. It's the perfect album to play, whether you alone or with friends. It just sucks you in and you get lost in it, in a good way. Happy Trails to me is the ONLY way they could have ended the album and send you on your way with a smile on your face. It still does that for me and that's saying a lot about the longevity and the high regard I have for it. It's easy to get jaded by an album as old as this one is, if it's not done right. Here, it's like the perfect album and highly underrated compared to some of their other more revered releases.

As for the track list order, this wasn't the only time the band really f ucked up on this. If you have Van Halen (The Best Of Both Worlds) 2004, you can see the disregard or care for doing it right, which is a problem still irks me about this particular set.

So, dude...which album you vote for as the best VH album in the Poll? Curious to know what you hold up as the highest standard in it's career.
