-> Classic VH Tracks like "Can't Stop lovin' you", "Not Enough" and the nice instrumental track named Balluchiterium. "Not enough"has a great piano intro and an awesome guitar solo on it. One of my favorites tracks.

Possibly the best record recorded with Sammy Hagar. Some goofy stuff on it, but overall, a good record.

This album, like 5150 and Van Halen, has been played around me so many times that I get totally nostalgic when I hear it. Many times it has been playing while something good was happening to me. So it's cool. The Seventh Seal, Don't Tell Me What Love Can Do, and Feelin' are all awesome rockers. Can't Stop Lovin' You is a corny power ballad, but they pull it off. No surprise, I mean we're talkin' about the original mister "Love Walks In" man here. Strung Out and Doin' Time are both weird instrumental jokes that suck. Big Fat Money and Aftershock are okay. Not Enough is a great piano song, not synth. Piano. Listen to it, it rules. Great song. Take Me Back is a great, driving song with cool guitar. Amsterdam rules all out. This song is so heavy with guitar hooks. My fave is Baluchitherium, a superb guitar instrumental with intertwining guitar harmonies. This song is buried treasure. Quick, be the first one to know how cool this song is. You'll be playing it and every one of your buds will think it rules, and you'll be the only one who knows what album it's on. This song really showcases Eddie, the man. He would really make a great solo album, that guy. Great cd all in all. What OU812 should've been like. Another thing: Next time you listen to this CD, think about what it would be like with no vocals. It sounds to me like a kickass Joe Satriani record or something!
