A Different Kind of Truth is the 12th studio album by American hard rock band Van Halen. Released on February 7, 2012, by Interscope Records, the record is Van Halen's first full-length album of studio material with former lead singer David Lee Roth since 1984. Likewise, it is Van Halen's first studio album since 1998's Van Halen III. It is the first to feature Eddie Van Halen's son Wolfgang on bass guitar, replacing Michael Anthony, who had played bass on all of Van Halen's previous albums.
A Different Kind of Truth is an incredible album by any measure. And whether it’s true or not, ADKOT seems like the ultimate thank you to the world’s most dedicated Van Halen fans. Eddie Van Halen was a riff-making machine during the late 1970’s, single handedly changing the way subsequent generations would approach the instrument. And while plenty of that music ended up on the first six albums, the band’s release schedule couldn’t keep pace with EVH’s creative output.

A Different Kind of Truth Lyrics. Lyrics to the Full Album on one page). Ain't no Red House over yonder No Stormy Monday waits for you Ain't no Midnight Train to Georgia And I'm not looking for the truth And I'll tell you what I'm getting rid of next You and your blues Yes I am. You're bad mood's permanent Communication Breakdown Like watching someone reinvent Their 19th Nervous Breakdown. Woman you suffer from a color I suffered cause of you Now everybody's suffered 'Cause of you and your blues
A Different Kind of Truth is the first Van Halen album since the Nineties dregs of Balance and Van Halen III, which were just humiliating Styx rips. But Eddie has rediscovered his guitar and unplugged the synths, as if Roth’s presence reminded Eddie who his band is named after. Since there’s never been a single Van Halen fan in history who secretly wished Eddie would put down the guitar and play more keyboards, this is a coup. Especially because Eddie’s solos have the fluency of his early Eighties playing – just listen to him stretch out on Big River and Blood and Fire

Considering this is Van Halen’s first LP for fourteen years – and first with David Lee Roth for twenty-eight – it comes as no shock that the quartet struggle most here when briefly exploring their poppy glam-rock side. Thankfully, these forays are few and far between, with the ageless rockers wisely constructing many of these tunes by reworking unreleased demos and bits & pieces from their storied past. Many such tidbits date back to the mid-1970s, meaning ‘A Different Kind Of Truth’ probably has more in common with an album like ‘Van Halen II’, than any other.
It's been a whopping 28 years since David Lee Roth last made an album as the frontman of Van Halen - more than twice as long, in other words, as his original stint with the legendary Los Angeles hard rock band.
