Format: Audio CD
When Van Halen released their debut in 1978, the incredible guitar work of Eddie Van Halen and the gonzo genius of David Lee Roth's larger than life persona of ultimate rock frontman, they helped guide rock away from the mediocrity (Village People, Bee Gees) and horrendus disco back to a much harder sound. While punk got its start in around the same time, it was more underground and much more politically charged than Van Halen's scene. Van Halen was concerned with partying, not criticising existing political structures or lambasting what punk considered dinosaurs from a bygone era (read Led Zeppelin and The Who).

While punk proved influential, Van Halen laid the groundwork for much of the 1980s music scene, with big hair, monster riffs, and the dime-a-dozen, but mandatory for every hair metal record, power ballads. While the power ballads were mostly from the Sammy era, their 1978 debut pretty much rewrote the rule book, and established hard rock as a viable, commercially successful prospect in the late 1970s and early 1980s, paving the way for quite a few other bands of the same generation.

As I've said before, much of this success is owed entirely to their debut. VAN HALEN turned the clocks back the late 1950s and early 1960s, where rock was dangerous (although by today's standards rather tame). They abandoned all the pretensions of progressive rock (read Yes, ELO), rock operas (The Who), punk (The Sex Pistols), and went back to a time when the music was about a few simple things - sex, partying, and then more sex. On top of that, they wrote phenomenal, catchy music, had a hell of a guitar player and an over the top madman of a singer, making their debut one of the biggest selling records ever.

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!

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.
