This album was the last one that David Lee Roth recorded with Van Halen and he definitely left on a high note. This is a very fun album, with the classic feel-good song “Jump.” This song seems to have set the tone for a lot of bands in the years following. “Panama” is one of Van Halen’s most beloved songs and can still be heard often on the radio. “Top Jimmy” is one of my favorite songs ever by Van Halen. It’s a great country/blues number that is one of their best foot-stompers. “Hot For Teacher” is another highlight, with it’s great intro and fast, furious playing. You can tell they probably had a lot of fun doing this one, including the video for the song. Every song is cool on this one and if you’ve never heard this before, this is essential 80’s hard rock that you should definitely check out. If you’re already a Van Halen fan, make sure that this is in your collection!
