When Sammy joined Van Halen in 1985, he still owed Geffen another solo release,and in 1987, he finally got around to it.Although the 3 most well known tunes from this release are all power ballads(Give to Live,Hands and Knees,and Eagles Fly)the rest of the disc features some good,hard-rockin' songs,with tracks 1,5,and 6 being standouts.Good solo effort, with help from none other than Eddie Van Halen.

Never been a big Sammy fan, but even his fans have to admit he was on auto-pilot for this label fulfillment album. Awful hard rockers mixed with generic ballads show you that all his concentration was with Van Halen. 2/10

From: Rycheage Date: June 27, 2004 at 18:14
Aided by Eddie Van Halen on bass, Hagar pounded out a mixed effort that ranged from Van Halen caliber hard rock to brutally anonymous filler. The album is otherwise known as 'I Never Said Goodbye', the title coming from an MTV competition in which a viewer was chosen to name the record. As with most of Hagar's albums there are hefty doses of hard rock with a smattering of AOR tossed in.

A disappointment due to the influence of Eddie Van Halen. He was ok with the original VH, but there were many more talented musicians than Eddie. Sam should never joined for this.

Total Van Hagar rock/hard rock, con escasos temas de interes. Quizas si Hagar no le huberia pedido ayuda a Eddie para esta obra, ni "Give To Live" ni tampoco "Eagles Fly" (los que junto a "When The Hammer Falls" lo mejor de este normalito disco) hubieran sido rescatados pulidos e incluidos en el Van Halen Live Right Here,Right Now cuyas versiones son mucho mejores 8/10.

"Back into you" is a killer hard aor song.Mr Hagar delivers a great and powerful album even though some comments here are bad.I consider this album quite good anyway.

"Give to live", "Eagles fly" and "Back into you". Those three songs are great but that's about it for this record. A disappointment considering it was released in 1987 when Van Hagar was creating masterpiece after masterpiece. 5/10. Great when it's great, dull when it's not. Sammy can do much better!

Two of the most prolific rockin' ballads of Hagar's career are nested within this disc, namely "Eagles Fly" & "Give To Live". Both are inspiring lyrically & offer a tremendous touch for heartfelt melodies. Other than that, there's not much to get excited over but these 2 tracks are worth it.

Hagar's final solo album of the 80's is production-wise the most clear & well mixed. Several reasons being maybe because Eddie Van Halen was playing guitar on a Hagar album & was credited for helping on the technical side. Moreover, the Red Rocker's job as lead vocalist for Van Halen was already locked in by this point having released their output as a unit the previous year. However, the album title was confusing, known in some countries as Sammy Hagar 1987, elsewhere as "I Never Said Goodbye". (Being a reference that he was still active as a solo artist as well.) Songwise, if for nothing else, it contains his two best ballads, "Give to Live" & "Eagles Fly". Both are high quality tunes, sonically & lyrically, giving crediblity to Hagar's penmanship as well as his already profound rock sensiblity. Still, rockers such as "Hands & Knees" & "When the Hammer Falls" are no slouches. Not so mysteriously, they sound as though they could have been lifted from Van Halen's eponymous debut from '

'86. Typically, as with any Hagar album, there are also a few duds among the highlights. "Boys Night Out" is filler but nothing extremely unworthy. "Returning Home" is bordlerline infectious, charming with it's rousing beat & band vocal harmony. Side B begins with "Standing at the Crossroads". A short but sweet bottleneck blues guitar intro to "Privacy" that when coupeled together seems somewhat out of place on the album yet non-the-less pleasing & offers as a vehicle for the band to jam. "Back Into You", another foot tapper, contains neatly placed keys & an uplifting vocal but falls short of being iconic. A nice album track but nothing more. The record closes in less than dramatic fashion with the tolerable but forgetful "What They Gonna Say Now". Overall, still another solid slab for the Hagar cannon yet due to his detour with VH, a decade would pass before he would return to his solo career.

Good album with that typical Hagar style...best tracks for me are "Back Into You"(killer),"Give To Live"(nice)& "Eagles Fly"...just that,a good album IMHO...84/100

I do credit to Remastered Reason's comment. There's nothing much to add. I bought this cd quite late - up after "Unboxed" having supposed (just because these two ballads) this album would be better than the others. Well, I'm not sure because the rest of the album is quite similar to the songs on "Unboxed". US hard rock sometimes with a bit of aor, blues or r'n'r. The vocal is perfect but the songs are rather dull (ie average).80/100.
