  • I had to write a review just to correct the number of stars that my colleagues gave this record. It deserves five for a few reasons: Eddie’s “brown sound” was shaped, sculped, and perfected on this record- a perfect electric-guitar,rock-n’-roll tone. The first VH records were brilliant, but the amount of reverb- especially on VH 1- didn’t reveal Eddie’s genius for sound until Fair Warning. His solos are perfect, as on “Push Comes to Shove”. The solo on “Sinner’s Swing” is another highlight; it sounds almost like he’s having a musical seizure. I expect my CD player to spit the disc on to the floor during that solo. A little darker than the rest of DLR-era Van Halen, this album is fantastic. The songs are great, and the composition of Eddie’s solos shows him at his peak. Buy this record. Right Now!
