Van Halen II is every bit the classic their debut was. David Lee Roth’s talent really shows here. From what I hear this album was recorded in less than a week! You wouldn’t know it, as the songs sound masterfully crafted. Not one second seems rushed.Another fine cover tune opens the album,”You’re no good” and gets things going in full throttle. “Dance the night away” with it’s pleasant harmony reached the top 20. The feel-good chorus of “Bottoms up” never disappoints. Eddie showcases his acoustic chops on “Spanish fly” followed by the all-out rocker “Dead or alive”. “Women in love” will lift you up during the dog days of summer. Capping it off is the classic “Beautiful girls” playful lyrics, strong chorus, what’s not to like?The songs on Van Halen II encapsulate the ultimate Summertime feel. This is a must-have.
