Editors’ Notes

Van Halen's first album since 1998—and the first since 1984 with original singer David Lee Roth—redelivers a band that still outrocks the competition. Former bassist Michael Anthony is missed for his backing harmonies, but Eddie Van Halen's son Wolfgang sufficiently holds down the bottom end. The mix is drier than vintage Van Halen, but Eddie still rips heavy riffs ("China Town", "Big River"), and Roth sounds glad to have his old job back. "She's the Woman" is one of several tunes written for the band's '70s demos that scored their record contract. "Bullethead", "Outta Space", and "As Is" keep up the momentum, with Roth back to being a self-mocking hard rock singer out for a good time. Eddie warps some classic riffs and tones for "Honeybabysweetiedoll" and "The Trouble with Never." Overall, it's three steps in the right direction and far better a reunion than those of other bands of Van Halen's vintage. The deluxe version includes The Downtown Sessions, videos of acoustic performances of "Panama", "Beautiful Girls", and "You Are Your Blues". 

Customer Reviews

A Great Van Halen Album

But an excellent DLR album. This woulda been the perfect follow up to A Little Aint Enough... Brilliant rhythm section, superb guitars and Diamond Dave doing what he does best. This is so much better than we should have expected.

Welcome Back

Fantastic Album. Welcome back to the good old Days Superb Riffs by Eddie . Daves voice is still superb. Drums as heavy as ever. Must say Hatsoff to Wolfgang keep banging them Thumbs. Only thing i can say what were they thinking releasing Tattoo as the first Single . Without a doubt its the worst song on the Album.

The real Van Halen are back!!!

Total fear & expecting a Total Mess!! But this is the best VH album since 1984 & the Roth is back!!! No more Hager nonsense!!! Ok - Roth can't belt it out like he did when he was younger, but these songs feel like real VH songs written years ago & recorded today!! Need I say more!!!

Biography

Formed: 1974 in Pasadena, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

With their 1978 eponymous debut, Van Halen simultaneously rewrote the rules of rock guitar and hard rock in general. Guitarist Eddie Van Halen redefined what the electric guitar could do, developing a blindingly fast technique with a variety of self-taught two-handed tapping, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and effects that mimicked the sounds of machines and animals. It was wildly inventive and over the top, equaled only by vocalist David Lee Roth, who brought the role of a metal singer to near-performance...
