Editorial Review

What does a wildly successful purveyor of ‘80s big hair power ballads do in an ensuing decade dominated by fervent shoe-gazing and other attendant alt.cliches? If you’re Jon Bon Jovi, you scale back your band’s ambitions, retool yourself as surprisingly accomplished indie film and TV actor, and (mostly) wait for the pop music tides to turn in your favor again. But JBJ and guitarist/collaborator Richie Sambora didn’t let their band’s lukewarm ‘90s fortunes dampen their knack for hook-savvy songcraft, as this muscular anthem-fest argues at virtually every turn. BJ’s songs here may be as infectious as ever, yet they’re seldom mere confections, often infused with alternating doses of bracing cynicism (the title track’s sarcastic riposte to the ’04 election) and reflective, often bittersweet takes on histories both personal and otherwise. If it sometimes stoops to formula--the droning, metallic ethos of the obligatory big ballad "I Am" can’t overcome some equally perfunctory lyrics–it’s also an album with its share of warm surprises, be they unexpected nods to Dylan ("Last Man Standing," the acoustic idealism of "Bells of Freedom"), the hard-edged "I Want to Live" or a winning duet with Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A true Bon Jovi fan's true review
First, I'm a LTF.Now to my review... Just like Crush and Bounce, at first I thought the cd sucked.But the more I listen to it the more I like it (I now really like Bounce and Crush).At first the only two songs I liked were Have a Nice Day and Who Says You Can't Go Home.Now I've added Last Man Standing (in fact that might be the best), Story of My Life, Bells of Freedom, and even I Want to Be Loved.Maybe Last Cigarette and Novocaine will be next.

1-0 out of 5 stars Give it up, Jon!
What Jonny here doesn't realize was that he sucked in the 80s, so he decided to go pop and actually become WORSE!!! If this isn't the worst album of the new millenium, then it is definitely down there.

4-0 out of 5 stars Foreigner - 'Complete Greatest Hits' (Atlantic)
Review no.63. Twenty track CD release of all of Foreigner's hits they put out,between 1977-92. Has it REALLY been that long?Yes,I guess it has. All the great arena rock cuts your mind simply cannot forget are here,like "Feels Like The First Time" (my personal Foreigner favorite), "Hot Blooded","Double Vision","Urgent","Dirty White Boy",their signature tune "Juke Box Hero", their ballad "Waiting For A Girl Like You" among others.Only problem I have with Foreigner is these days on the tour circuit,they seem to tour with EITHER vocalist Lou Gramm or guitarist Mick Jones.Have these two parted ways for good?Would like to catch the band with both players.That'd be good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff Buy It Today!
I really like this album it is really good for anybody who starting to get into Foreginer. Now there are those of you who say that their are some songs missing I personally wish that "Rev On The Red Line" was on this CD. But isn't it true that on every greatest hits album you will find someone who isn't happy that a certain song isn't on it. But thats why there are the individual albums out there so you can get the famous songs and then you can buy their individual albums and the songs you really like.
5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest hits CD everyone needs
I've enjoyed this band since the first album came out way back in the 70s.Somehow I never get tired of these songs.Great guitar and arena rock voice too.Long, Long way from home is my favorite.It may be silly to review a greatest hits album that everyone who hasn't been under a rock know about, but I celebrate music like this that doesn't ever get old.I'm glad they added Blue Morning, Blue Day too. ...

FIRST I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT THIS RECORD IS A TIME WASTER. IT'S WASTING OUR TIME UNTIL AEROSMITH CAN FINISH THEIR NEW ALBUM. IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, YOU PROBABLY HAVE ALL OF THIS MATERIAL EXCEPT FOR THE 2(NEW SONGS) WHICH ARE LEFTOVERS FROM PUMP! SAVE YOUR MONEY!AND NOW......
1-0 out of 5 stars The reason this exists.
Aerosmith is contractually obligated to Sony Music to deliver another record this year. They had begun recording one, but Steven Tyler had to have throat surgery - taking him away from singing for months - and another bandmember was diagnosed with cancer and has begun treatment, preventing him from playing with the band also.

Editorial Review

While many of their peers were abandoning '70s metal and arena rock to hop the punk/new wave bandwagon, Def Leppard smartly stripped the earlier era's music of its excesses, bolstered it with energetic, pop-savvy hooks and quickly found itself the vanguard of the UK's new metal revival and one of the '80s most spectacularly successful rock acts. The first disc of this 35-track, two-and-a-half hour double-disc retrospective focuses on the familiar hits of their early MTV, platinum-selling prime, though the inclusion of the video edit/remixes of "Pour Some Sugar On Me" and "Rocket" attempts to cast them in a more club-friendly contemporary groove. But the grittier second disc showcases some of the early, overlooked roots of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect Def Leppard collection...
This is definitely one of the best "Greatest Hits/Best Of" collections around, It covers Leppard's entire career and only has a few glaring omissions. If you are new to Def Leppard, this is a good place to start since it has their biggest hits and most of the best songs from all of their releases. If you have been a fan for a long time, it's nice to have this much great music on two discs.
5-0 out of 5 stars Killer!!
I`m a huge fan of Def-Leppard, this album really rocks with some surprisingly good songs. If your a Def-Leppard fan you will love it, you won`t be disappointed. It`s worth every penny!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Do you like the 80's? One Disc or two?
This double disc best of is like having a Def Lep super hits jukebox. Thirty four tracks, rather neatly divided into two discs, packed to the gills and a nifty liner book with band members commenting on the songs (personal favorite, "Slang" was about phone sex!). This twin CD renders the old "Vault" superfluous.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bon Jovi's Last "Bubblegum" Album- And Their Breakthrough
SLIPPERY WHEN WET was Bon Jovi's big commercial breakthrough, as well as their last "bubblegum" album. This album, however, shows a more serious side with "Livin' On A Prayer" and "Wanted Dead Or Alive", both songs of pure determination. Jon Bon Jovi's belief that the young Australian touirist jailed in Indonesia since 2005 for drug-smuggling was unjustly convicted makes SLIPPERY WHEN WET an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is one is a must...
...if you are only going to own one Bon Jovi CD, make it Slippery When Wet.The vocals are solid throughout whether it's the heavier tracks such as, Let it Rock, Raise Your Hands, You Give Love A Bad Name, Livin' on a Prayer, etc.or the more melodic tracks like Never Say Goodbye.Wanted Dead or Alive is probably my favorite track on there and it is pretty unique.
4-0 out of 5 stars Happily Pleased
This is a really good album and I recommend this to anyone who is intrested in the 80s pop/rock genre. The whole album is really good and is music you could use as something to workout to or for jamming in the car too. ... Read more

In my 53 Years(I.m 65 and started listening to Rock and Roll when I was 12)there has never been an album to even come close to this fantastic piece of music!!If you want to experience this trip, latch on to Meat Loaf,s and Jim Steinman,s Classic. I,ve listened to a lot of music(some great, and a lot of crap) Nothing comes close to "BAT OUT OF HELL II. !!!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Meat Loaf: BAT OUT OF HELL II-BACK INTO HELL (1993)
We all know who Meat Loaf is. If it weren't for his smashing 1977 debut album, BAT OUT OF HELL, Meat Loaf would be virtually unknown. In 1993, after seven years since his 1986 album, BLIND BEFORE I STOP, Meat Loaf released the album BAT OUT OF HELL II: BACK INTO HELL, the smashing sequel to his 1977 predecessor. I was always pretty fond of Meat Loaf's music, but this album just turned me from a minor fan to a major fan. This album, which is my favorite Meat Loaf album, is spectacular.

4-0 out of 5 stars WHAT ABOUT THE FIRST CD?
I first heard about Def Leppard back in the day when I used to read a music paper from England called Melody Maker. It used to cost 50 cents and that was my music bible back then. I got to see them on their first American tour opening up for AC/DC and they were pretty good for a young band. This is a good compilation but where's WASTED or ROCKS OFF or ROCK BRIGADE from the first CD? That CD is not nearly as polished as their later stuff but it rocked, had a nice raw sound to it that I liked. It would have nice to include those songs here. Oh well.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great Songs, Classic Band, AWFUL Remastering job!
The reviewer that's most prominent on the first page (McCranie from Brunswick, GA) got me to buy this by praising the remastering. What a joke! I feel ripped off since I already have all the original CD releases of the original Steppenwolf albums and only bought for the so-called sound improvement of remastering. I am here to tell you, the guy is either tone deaf or doesn't know what he's talking about. The remaster sounds barely better than the original CD releases! When played even moderately loud everything becomes really bass heavy & muddy with all the instruments drowning out the vocals and no separation of instruments whatsoever no matter how much you try to EQ it. I have a good stereo system (Bryston 4bSt running through Polk rti12s) and I love heavy bass and a heavy drum sound when it's clean like on early 1970s remastered HDCD King Crimson CDs, remastered Yes CDs or Zeppelin. The bass blasts, the drums blast like crazy but there's SEPARATION so that it's not just a big mud of noise! Some of those old records when remastered good sound so good, it literally sends chills down my spine. You mean to tell me Steppenwolf screwed up so bad in the studio that no matter what they can't get some decent remastered sound out of these tapes? If that's the case then it's very sad because this is one of the really great American rock bands. My advice is DON'T buy this expecting to get good sound because you won't. What you'll get is a bunch of great songs that sound OK at low volume but when you try to crank it loud like hard rock & to tell you the truth, all good music, is supposed to be played, you get so much loud undistinguished sea of mud coming out of your speakers with John Kay's vocals drowned in it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great cd

Probally one of the best greatest hits album out right now. I don't think there is a song on here I don't like. I bought this right after my dad did, two years ago and it still gets continuous play here and in my dad's truck.

4-0 out of 5 stars Despite what others say, I really like this...
This certainly isn't the only greatest hits album by Aerosmith, but it's the only one i have.I had most of their LP records years ago, but no longer have a turntable.This cd has some of my favorites by the band, as I like their older stuff better than the more recent.Everything from the late 80's on just is not as good in my opinion.
4-0 out of 5 stars at least its better than O yeah
Greatest Hits is Aerosmith's first compilation. It's also probably their best one, considering it had all the truly essential songs up to that point. Tracks like Mama Kin, Seasons of Wither, Train Kept a Rollin, Toys in the Attic, and Uncle Salty probably didn't appear on here cuz Aerosmith wanted to make a small compilation. It would be nearly perfect if it wasn't for the destruction of two great Aerosmith songs.
2-0 out of 5 stars If there's nothing better....
This is definitely not a bad collection, but there are so many better ones out there, that this should not be your first choice. The song Sweet Emotion has been completely destroyed on this album. the entire bass intro has been cut out, and the song starts about an entire minute into it. There really is no reason to do this, as even on the radio, they play the entire thing, as it runs about 4 and a half minutes long. The song starts at a terrible place too. It sounds like it would if you turned on your radio to the middle of the song, then just stuck it on the cd that way. Again, not a terrible compilation, but definitely not a good first choice. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Double-Disc Set Vocally Pairs A Buffoon With A Righteous Rocker
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, a two-disc set of Van Halen's greatest hits and album tracks, equally splits the songs between those sung by that annoying buffoon David Lee Roth and those fronted by Sammy Hagar, who rightfully believes that the young Australian tourist jailed in Indonesia since 2005 for drug-smuggling was unjustly convicted; thankfully, the four new songs feature Hagar, not Roth, which makes this set a vast improvement over BEST OF, VOL. 1. People can complain that VH were never the same without Roth, but I don't take any stock in their whimpering and whining, and, in fact, those people don't deserve to waste our oxygen, because Hagar, besides being a better person than Roth, can kick Roth's butt as a singer any day. This is a great set, but you'd be better off buying the first three albums with Hagar instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars 27 years of hits!
I give this item four stars because there is no booklet with information and lyrics and it doesn't come in a plastic jewel case,that I'm personally accustomed to. These songs do rock though. Van Halen's 1978 self-titled debut brought RUNNIN' WITH THE DEVIL,ERUPTION,the Ray Davies-penned YOU REALLY GOT ME,AIN'T TALKIN' 'BOUT LOVE and JAMIE'S CRYIN'. JC was most recently re-released on the PRIVATE PARTS movie soundtrack in 1997. YRGM was first a hit in 1965 or '66 for Davies' band The Kinks. 1979 saw the release of the follow-up simply entitled VAN HALEN II. Hits from that album contnained in this collection are DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY and BEAUTIFUL GIRLS. This collection could have used the Linda Ronstadt hit YOU'RE NO GOOD. From 1980's WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST are AND THE CRADLE WILL ROCK and EVERYBODY WANTS SOME. From 1981's FAIR WARNING is UNCHAINED. From 1982's DIVER DOWN are covers of the Roy Orbison hit (OH)PRETTY WOMAN and the Martha & The Vandellas hit DANCING IN THE STREET. The multi-platinum 1984 brought JUMP,two versions of PANAMA which is the album version and a live version from 1993's RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW with Sammy Hagar,HOT FOR TEACHER and I'LL WAIT. After the release of 1984,frontman David Lee Roth left the band by the preference of his bandmates and was succeeded by Hagar,who previously had a solo career on the Geffen label. 1986 saw the release of 5150,with Hagar on board. This Warner Bros. album,like the band's predecessors,spawned WHY CAN'T THIS BE LOVE,DREAMS,LOVE WALKS IN and this album's title track. 5150 went multi-platinum also. From 1988's OU812,another megahit, comes WHEN IT'S LOVE and FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED. From UNLAWFUL CARNAL KNOWLEDGE,released in 1991,come POUNDCAKE,RUNAROUND,IN AND OUT and TOP OF THE WORLD(not to the confused with the Carpenters' recording which was completely,musically different). From 1995's BALANCE is I CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU(not to be confused with the Don Gibson composition made famous by the late Ray Charles). One of the new tracks on this album is UP FOR BREAKFAST which is cool. All the other songs are great.

I was so hyped to get this album when it was released.After the double shot High & Dry and Pyromania, Def Leppard could do no wrong in my eyes.... Then they released Hysteria.Very polished, very slick, very pop.The metal was gone and so was I as one of their fans.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hysteria! Def Leppard's best album to date!
I love Def Leppard. They were the sound of the 1980s. They were regular perfomers on MTV during the 1980s. They not only made videos but they made music history. I was watching the movie based on the group's beginnings and the troubles. The fact that the drummer plays with only one arm after a tragic car accident shows the band's determination in returning to the concert halls as Def Leppard. The boys from Sheffield, South Yorkshire were just ordinary boys who wanted to form a band. This album with their first hit, Pour Some Sugar On Me, played endless and countless times on MTV. I won't forget the other songs like Hysteria, Love Bites, Armageddon, and I think this collection showed that Def Leppard was back and better than ever. They matured and grew and suffered some setbacks. They lived during the period of sex, drugs, and music. It's still music today. It's classic. I think of Def Leppard as one of the greatest music bands in British history.

Editorial Review

While most of their teen peers were embracing nascent '70s U.K. punk with all the snotty 'tude they could muster, Sheffield's Def Leppard instead infused then-moribund metal with bracing pop smarts. Having long since sold a gazillion or two records with that formula, the '80s superstars pay homage to the eclectic, chart-savvy tastes that spawned it on this collection of covers, recharging their contemporary fortunes a bit in the bargain. Their takes on Me Decade standards like The Faces' "Stay With Me," Badfinger's "No Matter What," and T Rex's "20th Century Boy" may be arguably Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Really Good...
but I can't help feeling a tad worried about these boys, being one of the last 80's hard rock bands left. Why, you might wonder. The answer is quite simple: there are a few "statements" that any recording artist should consider very carefully before actually making them, and these are, (in order, 1 being the most delicate): 5)a live album 4)an unplugged record 3)a greatest hits 2)a "covers" album 1)an album of re-recorded, remixed, updated hits. Such records, more often than not, become an artist's swan song (the examples are WAY too numerous to mention), since they are often the result of a contractual obligation, and many other times, they fortell the impending decline of a band that has little or nothing else to say. Considering that the last release from the Leppard boys WAS a greatest hits, I'd say we SHOULD be worried...I'm hoping I'm wrong, though, 'cause they are one of my fav bands...but to be honest with y'all, I've RARELY been proven wrong about things such as this...Anyway...Artistic worries aside, I think that the record is very good from a musical point of view: I knew the vast majority of these songs,as well as the artist that originally performed them beforehand (although I must admit that I'd never heard of John Kongos before...), and the end results are great! The album is great because, in my humble opinion, it succeeds in doing 3 critical things: 1)the new versions remain true to the spirit and emotion of the originals, which is THE most difficult thing to do when making a cover (how many HORRORS have we had to endure because of this very issue? too many to count...)2)the songs, while being covers, also show the inprint of the band's own personality 3)the trademark sound of the band is preserved, while at the same time it is updated, in other words, this doesn't sound like "Hysteria", but you can immediately tell that this is Def Leppard. Personally, I enjoy cover albums (The Spaghetti Incident, Acid Eaters, etc), and 13 years ago thanks to GN'R, I ended up discovering a myriad of great bands thanks to their own cover album: being a diehard, i took time to read ALL the liner notes, including their last message "do yourself a favor,go get the originals." The Leps don't actually say as much, but I think the message in implied in their own liner notes as well. Who knows? Maybe this will spark a new wave of interest in 70's rock? I think that would be great! But on to the music: this record IS NOT a glam cover record! (Just as GN'R record WAS NOT a punk cover album...) granted, Sweet, Bowie and T-Rex were definitely glam, but on the other hand, Thin Lizzy, Free, The Kinks and/or Badfinger WERE NOT glam. This is a tribute to their earliest influences, some of which happened to be glam. Most of the songs rock, and they are trully faithful renditions of the originals, with maybe a change here or there. My personal favorites are "Don't Believe a Word" (one of my fav Lizzy songs, and I couldn't be happier with the result), "Waterloo Sunset", "A little bit of Love", "20th Century Boy" (is he by any chance the boyfriend of the "21st Century Sha-la-la-la Girl"?) and "No matter what". A couple of songs can throw you off a little bit, especially if you're a hard rocker, such as John Kongos "He's gonna step on you again" and Bowie's "Drive-in Saturday". Now, don't get me wrong, they are great, but a little different from the rest of the album. But in the case of Bowie's tune, I feel it is a decidedly improvement over the original, which I never really liked, and I finally realized why: Bowie's delivery is flat and uninspired, the total opposite from Joe Elliott's. Again, don't get me wrong, I don't think it's likely to see Joe win any "best vocalist" accolades for his job here, but I believe he is a great singer and does a great work here. I only have two more observations: 1)why did they include YET AGAIN "No matter what", which was already On their Greatest Hits package, when they had additional songs to choose from, such as Space Oddity, Search and Destroy, etc??? 2)how come their version of "Hell Raiser" sounds a little stiff? This is very weird, especially since the Leps had done "Action" 13 years ago for "Retroactive", and their version was by far superior than the original; in this case, the song sounds good, but I guess I'll stick with the original. All in all, this is a great album, an although I'm not old enough to remember those days (as Sav says), I have been able to greatly enjoy the music from that era. Make yourself a favor and give this record a try, and while you're at it, check out the originals, too!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yeah! by Def Leppard
I have always been a Def Leppard fan since 1979.Their music has always been great.Their CD Yeah is also great.It contains music that has been done by other artists but vamped up and done Leppard style.I think it adds a great twist to the originals and shows how good rock and roll still is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Def Leppard - 'Yeah!' (Mercury)
Review no.98.Total of fourteen tracks,'Yeah!' simply has to be ONE of the best all-cover CD's I've ever heard.I've just recently caught Leppard on their current summer co-headlining tour with Journey,as they superbly played two of the best cuts off this CD,T.Rex's "20th Century Boy" and David Essex's Rock On" (I've heard fans go nuts over hearing this tune,saying it's the best song to hit the airwaves in years). Other outstanding tracks here are Badfinger's "No Matter What", The Face's FM staple "Stay With Me",Free's "Little Bit Of Love" and ELO's "10538 Overture".A must-have.Highly recommended. ...

Editorial Review

At least half of the songs on Van Halen's eponymous 1978 debut are still considered classics, and the Eddie Van Halen instrumental "Eruption" revolutionized the guitar community by introducing a technique called finger-tapping into the heavy metal lexicon. A magnificent debut for sure, but maybe the band should have held onto a few of their blockbuster tunes to bolster the lean years that started after 1984, and continue to the present day. Regardless, Van Halen amply demonstrate their drive, showmanship, and musicianship throughout, blowing the needle off the scale on such tracks as "You Really Got Me," "Jamie's Cryin'," "Runnin' with the Devil," and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love."

5-0 out of 5 stars Where it all began
Anyone who is interested in heavy music should know about Van Halen.Not everyone has to like them, but their influence on rock and metal music is undeniable.The band's two most famous members are David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen, who are both incredibly talented and charismatic.Roth's vocal style is showy and extravagant, commanding attention with every sultry phrase.Eddie's guitar playing is wildly original, blending classic rock and blues ingredients with his own finger-tapping techniques and glitzy effects.Not only can Eddie play incredibly fast, but he can also write amazing riffs and craft solos which are memorable and melodic.
5-0 out of 5 stars How can I put this into words, hhmm...
Every one of the great guitar gods of our rock and roll time became whom they are for a unique style or technique they used or created. Hendrix used feedback and much distortion through his intricate riffs and otherworldly soloing. Eric Clapton held long rock jams that incorporated piercing fretwork and blues inspiration. Yngwie Malmsteen invented the shred technique. Joe Satriani had riffs and licks to build up to stunning, instrumental performances. And the double-handed tapping? The hammer-ons and pull-offs?

Well this is coming from a big crue head, and all I can say is if you are a really big crue fan that wants to collect all the crues albums get this one.But if not, and your a new fan looking for a greatest hits collection, please! go for Red White and Crue, it has way more songs only for a little more.Besides this disc is missing some of the most essential tracks from the crue like Live Wire and All in the name of..., Anarchy In the U.K., Piece of your action, Too Young to fall in love, and without you. Besides Red White and Crue has all of the missing tracks of this disc, and 90 percent of the good new songs of this cd.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD For True Bon Jovi Fans !
I have been a Bon Jovi fan for over two decades.I love their original songs and hearing them in this re-done relaxed and jazzy style is fabulous.I wouldn't have believed the CD to be a "greatest hits" in the original format, because I researched the album before making my purchase.This is an awesome CD and any true Bon Jovi fan will appreciate its artistic value.Jon's voice is better than ever and he was correct when he claimed in "This Left Feels Right".

2-0 out of 5 stars unexpected twist - hated it
I saw the song list and greatest hits in the title and bought it expecting the "greatest hits" in the form that made them "greatest." I was really sorry to hear that they were all re-made in a fashion that just was not my style.Nice try guys, but hated it.I did more research and bought "crossroads"

5-0 out of 5 stars Contrary to several buyers I love this CD!
I am a Bon Jovi freak and just love this CD.The only song on it that doesn't quite flow is Bad Medicine, but otherwise, I love to listen to it when I need something to calm my nerves.I find it very soothing.If you're a true Bon Jovi fan you will love, or at least like it too.Give it a try. ...

This is goood..maybe not as great as the appetite or the greatest hits...Use Your Illusion came out when I was born and has terrific songs like November Rain (One of my favourite songs of all time), Dust and Bones, and Right Next Door to Hell. if you don't have it get all 3 albums today. GNR ARE JUST AS GREAT

I can't even begin to say how much I love these albums (i just picked UYI 1 to write my review for both).Everyone always says that Appetite is Guns best album...no way in hell.The Illusion albums are so much richer.

After the huge success of "Appetite For Destruction" back in 1987, Guns N' Roses decided to change their sound and release a two part album containing a variety of different songs and a couple of really good cover tracks by Dylan and McCartney.The band also took on keyboardist Dizzy Reed in order to further divert from their previous sound who performed on a number of tracks.

If you don't know who Def Leppard is or have never heard of the album Pyromania then you are probably not an 80s child and if you were then you lived under a rock. This album is the genesis for Dep Leppard. There were albums before this one but this album really got people to notice who the band was and what they were capable of. Anyone who is a die hard DL fan will tell you that this album is significant because most everyone agrees that every song is a hit. This phenomenon is rare and Tesla's Mechanical Resonance is the only album that I know of who's fans will say the same of. Don't waste your time or money on any other album if you aren't sure if you like DL. Any greatest hits album (i.e. "Vault") will contain about 75% of the songs from this album and leave you missing out of the other outstanding 25%. Just get it, you know you wanna.

5-0 out of 5 stars Van Halen at it's best!
Van Halen never really recovered from David Lee Roth's departure. Despite all the trouble and his presence when he was there, this compact disc of one of their most popular ever record albums has hits like "hot for teacher" and a memorable video that went with it but not with this compact disc. We all remember Roth's pants and his rendition of Jump. I never got the song, Panama, but the album is a classic. I remember when my supermarket sold albums like Van Halen's 1984 with Footloose Soundtrack and Michael Jackson's Thriller. Those days of record albums are long gone. Cassettes came and went and now the compact disc looks like it's here to stay so if you're a Van Halen fan, you might as well get this one to play over and over again.

4-0 out of 5 stars Roth's last Hurrah
Van Halen was innovative with the use of keyboards on this CD.1984 is a unique instrumental opening, which leads into the keyboard-driven "Jump."This clearly one of their best-known songs.Some other well-known tracks on here are Panama and Hot For Teacher.
5-0 out of 5 stars Diamond Dave's VH Career Goes Off With A Bang.
Van Halen's first barrage of albums, "The debut in particular",created the genre known as pop-metal.However, Van Halen was simply way more talented than the average hair-metal band.I'm talking of course about Eddie Van Halen's incredible guitar playing which rewote the rules for what heavy metal guitar could sound like.He shredded through all of Van Halen's first albums in which most, if not all, were landmark recordings.Now we get to this album, 1984, made in the year 1984.Despite what some people think this is not the first VH album to use keyboards and synths.The song, "And The Cradle Will Rock", used keyboards, however they were fed through a guitar amp and sounded like typical pick scrapes.This is the first time, however, synths are actually mixed in to aid the songs and give them a more pop friendly sound.
