I’m a big Van Halen fan and due to the fact that the 1st song I ever heard from them was “Jump” it solidified my status as a David Lee Roth fan. Therefore, I had to listen to his solo albums. This is only the second, album i’ve heard from DLR (the other being “Skyscraper” and while this one has better lyrics, I think in the music department, I think they are kind of a tie.). Here are the tracks and my thoughs and oppinions:
A Little Ain’t Enough:Really good title track, some of the best solo DLR lyrics.
Shoot It:Very good beat and lyrics too it. I really like this song.
Lady Luck: This isn’t a terrific song, it’s kind of…Boring really isn’t the word, but it’s the best I can come up with.
Hammerhead Shark:This is a pretty cool song actually. It’s very catchy
Tell the Truth:It’s allright. It’s not the best song on the album
Baby’s On Fire: This is better than the Van Halen song “On Fire”. It’s a really good song.
40 Below:This is a good song and the lyrics are kind of funny.
Sensible Shoes:The harmonica work is pretty good but the song itself just isn’t terrific.
Last Call:This song has a pretty good chorus, except the verses are kind of dumb
The Dogtown Shuffle:It’s semi-good. It’s nowhere near being the best song on the album,
It’s Showtime:The guitar in the beginning is great,and it’s a pretty good song the rest of the way through as well
Drop in the Bucket:Guitar sounds spectacular. This is one of the better songs on the album.
So, all in all, this is a pretty good DLR album. A must for Van Halen fans. B+.
