Quite simply put, no-one had seen or heard anything like it. David Lee Roth’s flamboyant showmanship, with the microphone dangling provocatively between his legs on the cover, and Eddie Van Halen’s monstrously inventive guitar playing became a textbook for air guitarists the world over. From the instrumental blow-out of ‘Eruption’, the gritty teen pop of ‘Feel Your Love Tonight’, to the strutting riff around which ‘Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love’ was built and the grandiose reworking of the Kinks’ ‘You Really Got Me’, Van Halen set their own absurd standards. One of the truly great rock and roll/metal debut albums of all time.

Tracks: You Really Got Me; Jamie’s Cryin’; On Fire; Runnin’ With The Devil; I’m The One; Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love; Little Dreamer; Feel Your Love Tonight; Atomic Punk; Eruption; Ice Cream Man....
