5.0 out of 5 stars No sophomore jinx for Van Halen June 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
In March of 1979, California based rockers Van Halen unleashed their sophomore effort Van Halen II. The album was produced by Ted Templeman whom helmed the first six albums for the band and this album has all but one track written by Eddie and Alex Van Halen(guitar and drums), David Lee Roth(vocals) and Michael Anthony(bass). The album kicks off with a rocking version of the 1974 Linda Ronstadt hit You're No Good with Dave screaming during the chorus as Eddie and Michael sing the chorus. The hit Dance the Night Away follows and was the song that got most attention from this album. Somebody Get Me a Doctor and Bottoms Up are excellent hard rockers and Outta Love Again ends the second half on a rockin note. Light Up the Sky is a kick ass rocker that starts the second half. Spanish Fly showcases Eddie's talents on classical guitar. D.O.A.(stands for Dead Or Alive) is an awesome rocker. Women in Love starts sounding to be a ballad in its guitar intro before rocking out. The closing Beautiful Girls is another rock radio staple and a kick ass rocker. This was the band's first US Top 10 album and second million seller. I first got this album on cassette in March of 1985 and loved it immediately and the remastered CD catalog buries the original issues by a longshot! Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - an excellent sophomore album May 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Van Halen II (1979.) Van Halen's second album.
In the late seventies, Van Halen entered the growing rock and roll scene. And only about a year after releasing their self-titled debut album, they released their sophomore effort, appropriately entitled Van Halen II. It seemed that Gene Simmons of KISS was right about these guys - they had serious rock potential. How do Dave, Eddie, Alex, and Mike measure up on their second album? Read on for my review of Van Halen II.
Van Halen's second album doesn't have nearly as many hits as their debut does, which isn't surprising assuming their debut is one of the most popular rock albums of all time. But still, this album manages to serve up its share of hits as well. The melodic rocker Dance The Night Away and the rock classic Beautiful Girls both originated on this album. These two tracks were the only singles released from this album, but they were far from being the only excellent tracks to emerge from it. As they proved on their debut, the band was excellent at covering tunes. Only one cover song can be found on Van Halen II, and it's a cover of the Linda Rondstat classic, You're No Good. When I heard that the band had covered this song, I had serious doubts about how well they would be able to execute it - but their recording that kicks off this album shattered those doubts. This is even better than the original version! And, of course, we have the underrated compositions that the band put together for this album. The hard and heavy Somebody Get Me A Doctor is one of Van Halen's finest songs ever recorded, and it's a shame this one never got more popular. The acoustic instrumental Spanish Fly is also excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sizzlin' Sophomore Album Oct. 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
Van Halen pumped this album out a mere thirteen months after exploding onto the rock 'n' roll scene with their debut. Van Halen II, although it's one track shorter than its predecessor, might not be considered "better," but it is, at the very least, satisfying. The style of II is essentially the same as that of Van Halen I, with plenty of Eddie's good ol' riffs, hooks, and melodies ... and it might be a little more wild, too. The album opens with the mellow "You're No Good," thankfully the album's only cover song. It's always nice to hear these guys "Halenize" a classic with their magic, but it's even better to hear their own stuff.
Just two singles were released from II: "Dance the Night Away," the band's first mainstream hit, and "Beautiful Girls," the up-tempo album closer. "Spanish Fly" is a short, sweet, solo piece, like an acoustic "Eruption." Some consider it filler material, but listen to it and see if you have any complaints. My personal favorite here is "Light Up the Sky," with its great opening and up-tempo beat. The album's heaviest cut is probably "Somebody Get Me a Doctor," or maybe it's "D.O.A." (which stands for "Dead or Alive," by the way).
As far as follow-up albums go, this one's a winner, considering it was put out just a year after Van Halen's debut. Kick [booty]!
