  • Unboxed is a great compliation of the best of Sammy Hagar’s solo stuff from the ’80s. Every track here is great, including the two new tracks. Whether it’s radio-friendly hard rock (“Baby’s On Fire”, “Two Sides Of Love”, “I’ll Fall In Love Again”), heavier riff-based material (“Heavy Metal”, “I Don’t Need Love”, “Three Lock Box”) or ballads (“Give To Live”, “Eagles Fly”), everything here is first rate. “I Can’t Drive 55″ and “There’s Only One Way To Rock” are fantastic rock anthems, with the latter being one of the best concert opening songs ever. The two new songs “High Hopes” and “Buying My Way Into Heaven” are also strong with a great in your face production. So why not 5 stars? It’s missing his biggest solo hit “Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy”, which granted is lightweight compared to the songs featured here, but still if included would make this album a near perfect collection of hard rock. Still, if there’s one Sammy Hagar album to own, this is it.
