Product Description


At least half of the songs on Van Halen's eponymous 1978 debut are still considered classics, and the Eddie Van Halen instrumental "Eruption" revolutionised the guitar community by introducing a technique called finger-tapping into the heavy metal lexicon. A magnificent debut for sure, but maybe the band should have held onto a few of their blockbuster tunes to bolster the lean years that started after 1984, and continue to the present day. Regardless, Van Halen amply demonstrate their drive, showmanship, and musicianship throughout, blowing the needle off the scale on such tracks as "You Really Got Me", "Jamie's Cryin'", "Runnin' with the Devil", and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love". --Jon Wiederhorn

I don't really have a favorite VH album. I like most of the songs from all of their albums. But this one is great. 'Runnin' With The Devil' was the first song I learned to play.
To that n00b who just said that VH sucks because they aren't on MTV- MTV is a gay channel. It just plays rap and other gay stuff. Blink 182, Avril Lavigne and w/e else you suggest really, really suck. I mean, they are already forgotten and its only been less than a year since their last albums came out. This album came out in 1978 and people still talk about it- alot. It sold *10 MILLION* copies. Blink and Avril and all of them have a total of around 2 million copies sold- from all of their albums. VH has 13 albums counting their brand new one, each one is a massive hit. So go away and shutup. VH won't be played on a 'newest music' station since their newest music is '98 on VH 3. Actually, they have 3 new songs on BOBW so w/e.

Van Halen has lots of great albums but this just takes the cake. I won't make this a biased opinion.

1.Runnin' With The Devil-Great vocals by a young David Lee Roth screech's and screams thats what it's all about. great opening riff,very catchy.10/10

2.Eruption-I love eruption, reminds me of the Power Rangers theme song.But to get to the review...great instrumental in fact it's in the top 3 greatest guitar solos ever...GOOD JOB EDDIE! 10/10

3.You Really Got Me-Great cover turns up the heat when it comes to the vocals and the guitar...awesome guitar solo. This song will make people who say the, original is always better,think twice.9/10

4.Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love-One of the many hits from this cd. Great and catchy riff and solo. Very addicting song,once again great vocals.9/10

5.I'm The One-Very heavy intro also catchy but lacks the vocal support that David usually gives out luckly Eddie's great guitaring makes it an above average song.7/10

6.Jamie's Cryin'-Love the guitar very raunchy goes very well with the song. personally very underrated song on this album.Great vocals.10/10

7.Atomic Punk-Great use of a phaser by Eddie, lyrically could be better but other than that vocals are wonderful.Personally one of my favs.9/10

8.Feel Your Love Tonight- Here come the lady's this song is very catchy great back-up vocals, good song to use when your girlfriend or wife says no for the 3 time that week. Listen to the song and you'll understand.10/10

9.Little Dreamer-Good song,good lyrics,good guitar,good drums,good bass just...good.8/10

10.Ice Cream Man- One of Eddie's Great Solos starts off alittle folky but makes up for it later on.good vocals.9/10

11.On Fire-Starts of with amazing guitar but is probably my least favorite on this album.Vocals could be better not really catchy...but again amazing guitar.7/10

5.0 out of 5 stars A NEW BEGINNING June 14 2006
By Max
Format:Audio CD
First of all, those of you getting so upset w/ Avril Lavigne's # 1 fan should realise ...this is a young girl who sits in front of the TV all day being furthur brainwashed by what is so called mainstream. She's not very bright either. When this album came out, it changed guitar rock. You can still hear the influence in Steve Vai and Satriani's playing today! (Finger tapping, whammy dive bombing) ...of course Hendrix had a great deal to do w/ that aswell. Van Halen as it began did not start off mainstream. Commercial radio (equivalent to MTV). Nevertheless they reached stardom w/out the aid of radio. Word of mouth. Once they decided to add synthesizer (Jump-1984), They became Mega-Stars and reached a whole new audience. Yes even MTV had to acknowledge the sheer vast popularity of Van Halen. This is the album that started it all. For those of you looking for a new rock guitar hero, even if it's almost thirty years prior, look no further. The technical ability but especially the ferocious attack in Eddie's playing is difficult to surpass even today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another trip down memory lane for me on this one May 10 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard this album in my first term at university. Blew my amplifier on Running with the Devil. Literally, I saw smoke coming out of the amp. I had borrowed some Corwin Vega speakers and pinned the vu meter needles. That was followed by smoke and dead silence. Unbelievable album. Many good memories brought back listening to this album of where I was, the friends I had, and that time of my life, a happier time in my younger days. Highly recommend this album for fans of music from the late 70's up to the mid 80's.

Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Vinyl is where it's at for this album! Put it on, crank it up! The first few thuds of the bass on Runnin' With The Devil pull you right in to the wild dirty ride that is Van Halen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking Rock Album!!!! Dec 12 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eddie Van Halen almost single handedly saved rock fr. disco & schmatzy ballads of the late '70's by using flamenco guitar licks and other innovative techniques within a straight forward rock guitar band. This album is hard to locate on vinyl since it is such a party record, but if you want to settle for a fantastic LP on CD, please do-I bought mine for less than $10 on amazon.
