At first I was skeptical about this 3rd album by the godly Van Halen because it is one of the overlooked albums, but it is also the most underrated. I would rate this the 3rd best Van Halen album. Michael Anthony was at the top of his game, It was arguably DLR's best performance, Eddie was still on top of it, and it had remarkable work by Alex. "And The Cradle Will Rock" is a popular song from the album but I personally don't think it's that great of a song. "Romeo Delight" is the hardest, and pretty close to the best song i've ever heard. It's hard, fast, has catchy lyrics, and the ending riff blew me away. This is the best work Michael Anthony ever did on bass, and one of the best Alex did on the drums. The lead in song "Tora! Tora!" is good but they could of added it to "Loss of Control", or just not put it in at all. "Loss of Control" is another of the good songs and the second best in my oppinion. "Take Your Whiskey Home" is like a funny version of "Ice Cream Man" off of VH1 it begins with Dave on the acoustic, and it has funny lyrics, and he hiccups while singing the song.
If your into harder songs, and your a VH fan, this is definatly the album your looking for. "Everybody Wants Some", "Fools", "Romeo Delight", "Loss of Control", and the killer finisher "In A Simple Rhyme" are all good songs and any one of those songs alone are worth the money. This is the most underated album, but I can't see why. It is a must have for any Van Halen fan.

With their third release, WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST, Van Halen stepped into an era of heavier guitar work. Eddie rips chrods like crazy on this release. Released in March of 1980, WACF has some filler, but overall ranks as a very strong release. The opening track, "And The Cradle Will Rock, " gets your blood pumping. The odd sound at the biggining is actually a keyboard, which the band had been experimenting with at the time, and would play a big part in 1984. "Everbody Wants Some!" is a wild rocker with Roth talking between the verses, "I like the way that line runs up the back of your stocking." It's hilarious and I listen to this track over and over. "Fools" takes forver to start up, and has a clunky chorus that gets boring. "Romeo Delight" speeds things up alot after that and Eddie really shows his pro style on this one.
"Tora Tora" and "Loss of Control" are mere fillers to take up space, and do little to show the band's creativity. "Take Your Whisky Home" changes all that. It's good rocker that starts acoustic before getting heavy. This and "Could This Be Magic?" are great drinking songs. The latter is a fun acoustic ballad that is fun to play around the campfire. The closer, "In A Simpler Rhyme," has heavy riffs along with a pleasant chorus to start and end the track. The filler in the middle of this album along with "Fools" are the reasons why I ranked it only 3 stars. Other then that, it rocks hard from start to finish. I have a giant poster of the back of this album, and it's an awesome collectors item that I will treasure forever. Pick up this album today and have fun banging your head.

This VH CD is the first where the band sounds like a band and not merely 3 guys backing up Eddie's pyrotechnics. That's not to say Eddie's fretwork isn't outstanding, it is but his playing really supports and fleshes out the songs instead of the songs merely being showcases for his playing. I don't think the band has ever rocked harder/better. From the opening roar of "...And the Will Rock" to the closing 10 seconds of the album that may have inspired the entire thrash metal genre, this CD comes on like a sledghammer in heat. Every song has the band working as a tight unit, particularly Fools and Romeo's Delight. VH proves they can still rock with a sense of humor (Everybody Wants Some!, Take Your Whiskey Home). This album is probably also the band's most varied without being downright weird like Diver Down. Tora! Tora! Tora!/Loss of Control is a sonic freakout. Could This Be Magic is VH's "Bron 'Y' Aur Stomp", an acoustic shuffle that is a nice counterpoint to the rest of the album's heaviness. My only complaint is that the CD clocks in at a very brief 34 minutes. C'mon Ed, how about a boxed set of complete remastered Roth-era recordings!?

One can tell from the keyboard-driven 'And the Cradle Will Rock' (processed through a guitar amp to SOUND like guitar, but it's keys) that Women and Children First is going to be an album that strays from their first two albums quite a bit. And it does. But unlike most 3rd 'Experiments' from bands, this album works. And it works extremely well.
Every song here is good. Romeo Delight is great hard rock, and Everybody Wants Some finds David Lee Roth at his flamboyant best. Eddie showcases his acoustic chops on Could This Be Magic?, and it's another full-band hyper-speed boogie on 'Loss of Control'. The highlight of the album however is the long-forgotten, highly underrated 'In A Simple Rhyme' a semi-epic love song that is quite possibly the single best song of the David Lee Roth era. Released as a single, this song could've been a sure classic. It closes the album on a high note.
Women and Children First is one of Van Halen's more underrated albums in the shadow of the excellent Fair Warning, but it's just as good. The only shortcoming is that it, like most Roth era albums, is very breif, only a little over a half-hour long. But it's definitly one of the highlights of the band's early-era.
