Album Review: Van Halen - Van Halen II

Album Review

Band: Van Halen
Album: Van Halen II
Year: 1979

Full disclosure: I am a huge Van Halen fan so this review may be biased. Van Halen stuck to the playbook from their first album and rocked out a classic.

Here is the list:
  1. You're No Good ★★★★
    1. Is this version better than Linda Ronstadt's? I say yes! Check out Michael Anthony's awesome bass riff that kicks the song off.
  2. Dance The Night Away ★★★
    1. Easily one of their best songs and their first "hit". The opening riff is straight up cash.
  3. Somebody Get Me a Doctor ★★
    1. Starts off like a Kiss song which a'int a bad thing.
  4. Bottoms Up! ★★
    1. When the worst song on the album gets three stars, the album is a classic.
  5. Outta Love Again 
    1. This song is not great but David Lee Roth's vocals are amazing. Play this and try to sing it yourself.
  6. Light Up The Sky ★★★
  7. Spanish Fly 
    1. It is not as good as Eruption was but Spanish Fly was spectacular.
  8. D.O.A. ★★
  9. Women In Love... ★★
  10. Beautiful Girls ★★
    1. Great lyrics capped off by this line: "I love 'em! I need 'em! Can't do without 'em, no!"
