By: Van Halen
Release date: 1978
Standing track: Runnin' With The Devil

Have to admit, this is the only album I thoroughly enjoyed by Van Halen. I'm not a major fan of Halen, just to a degree, but I did also like 1984. Anyway, this introduced a new, rare talent in Eddie Van Halen and his immortal tapping technique which has raised a question that still haunts to this very ... read more

100 kaikkien aikojen parasta rock-albumia (100 music items)

"Tämä levy kuulemma muutti heti käsityksen rock-musiikista. No jaa. Ehkä ainakin sen kitaroinneissa oli jotain omaperäistä, mutta muuten kyllä varsin tavallinen 70-luvun lopun tykitys. Pidin kuitenkin."

18 Best Rock / Metal Albums I've Heard! (18 music items)

" Year: 1978! The debut album from the band of the same name. 1984 may be their most recognizable album but Van Halen is still their most breakthrough effort till 2011! I mean, this is the album which showed us the brilliancy of Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth's unique vocals! Good job there! Tracks listing: 1. "Runnin' with the Devil" 2. "Eruption" (Instrumental) 3. "You Really Got Me" (Ray Davies) 4. "Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love" 5. "I'm the One" Side B No. "

RS 500: Part 5 (100 music items)

""This debut gave the world a new guitar hero (Eddie Van Halen) and charismatic frontman (David Lee Roth). Tunes such as "Runnin' With the Devil" and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" put the swagger back in hard rock, and Van Halen's jaw-dropping technique, particularly on "Eruption," raised the bar for rock guitar.""
