My critique is of the "Can't Stop Lovin' You" B-Side, which was only released on this single and Japanese versions of Balance in 1995. Dark, intriguing and creative, "Crossing Over" is an obscure and underrated gem of the Van Hagar era and a marked departure from the band's usual fare. I'm lucky enough to own the Balance import, and "Crossing Over" is one of my favorite songs on the album. I am an unabashed fan of all three incarnations of Van Halen and I believe each brought something new and untried to the table. For those who enjoyed their eclectic latter-90's era, I'd highly recommend picking up a copy of this single.

Eddie penned "Crossing Over" while Dave was still in Van Halen (the first time!) and went on to sing and play electric drums - which can be heard in the mix beneath the guys' retooling of the song with Sammy at the helm following the passing of Ed Leffler. The song deals with the subject of death, one Eddie's wretched shrieks can attest his familiarity with, and his guitar is wonderfully immersive and ethereal. The marriage of his 80's drumming with Al's later addition lends even more diversity. Unfortunately, Bruce Fairbairn considered the song too strange to make American pressings of Balance. Before I continue, it's interesting to note that a fair share of the material on Balance stems from the earlier days of Van Halen. Eddie composed "Crossing Over" before Sammy joined the group, while "Strung Out" existed during Dave's original tenure and "Take Me Back (Deja Vü)" comes from their club days.

As to this CD's main attraction, what can I say for "Can't Stop Lovin' You" that we don't already know? A fine song and a surefire hit for the boys, it's a great Van Hagar love song that does just fine without keyboards.
