Van Halen's 1978 outstanding debut is a collection of some of the most energetic songs of their career.
Eddie's outstanding blistering monster riffs are intermingled with the larger than life persona of gonzo frontman David Lee Roth's vocals. Veteran producer Ted Templeman capture their sound in its most frenzied state. Excellent backup vocal harmony. High-octane performance that create an invigorating, original sound.
A wild adrenaline rush from start to finish
An essential filler free hard rock album.
By far what a rock album should sound like - cut after cut. Every song is guarenteed to satify!
Great album debut. Every song, but "little Dreamer" is good.
What's most amazing about this album is how it sounds absolutely nothing like anything that came before it.
Simply: the most original debut album by a major artist ever released.
Although generations of bands tried to copy this sound, doing VH a great disservice in the process, blaming Van Halen for glam metal is like blaming The Beatles for Justin Bieber.
THE best Van Halen album. TRUST ME! I really don't like The Kinks but this album makes me enjoy You Really Got Me. It's probably in the top 5 most influential rock albums ever.... ever.
Not a great album, but it's not bad. There are a few tracks I like, but the fast solos and odd guitar work doesn't appeal to me that often. Van halen can have their shining moments here and there, but generally they don't
It's very difficult to describe "Van Halen" (1978) via precedents: there's the unselfconscious attitude of The Ramones and virtuosic musicianship of Led Zeppelin, but it's filtered through blaxploitation films, Southern California skateboarding culture, and P.T. Barnum's Circus.
The bottom line is: "Van Halen" sounds like nothing that came before it. Its impact on rock and roll (particularly on rock guitar and the role of the frontman) is seismic, but to this day, misunderstood. Blame a generation of hapless imitators, (which is not the "sincerest form of flattery" when the imitators adopt the trappings rather than the substance;) or a decade of high profile music released under the name "Van Halen" that bears only slight resemblance to innovative original songwriting team's; or spandex made out of women's' undergarments. Regardless, "Van Halen" is one of rock n' roll history's game-changing debuts, indelibly - on par with the influence of "The Ramones," "Led Zeppelin," or "Are You Experienced?"
Not bad at all, the singles are really good.
Good piece of juicy music ;)
What a way to get a career started. This CD is adrenaline-charged from start to finish and to this day remains a blast to listen to. Every dude my age wanted to be David Lee or Eddie.
