Quite possibly the worst Van Halen album from the Dave era!! But still, this album rocks, like any other Van Halen album!! Little Guitars is definitely the highlight of this album, but this album has too many covers!! But who cares, it's Van Halen and it rocks!!!!!

From: Kim Date: September 7, 2001 at 15:54
I love Van Halen, but this one suxx.

From: motley Date: April 17, 2002 at 2:42
I really really love this cd. The full bug and hanf em high really kix ass. Great one!!!!

From: Kim Date: July 23, 2002 at 17:10
Uhhhhh. This one is getting close to beeing the worst on this site.Only one descent track. Where have all the good times gone. I bet Van Halen must have been wondering in the studio. How many covers are there on this cd. !!!!!!!

From: ThunderDan Date: January 22, 2003 at 2:58
I agree that this is the weakest of the Dave-era albums. But it's nowhere near as pitiful as VH3, I'm sure everybody will agree w/ that!

From: me Date: January 25, 2003 at 23:24
I agree with many of you. This is the weakest of ALL the VH albums, Dave's desire to run the band and impose his will was to the deteriment of the music, too many covers, but Eddie's guitar work still shines through...'little guitars' is the pick of an ordinary bunch of songs...3.5/10

From: Great Dane Date: January 26, 2003 at 13:50
Its a disgrace. How can this band release such a load of crap. Ups they did it again with Cherone on vocs.

Too many cover songs, too many 'cutsie' songs, just a bad overall effort here. Thankfully 'Where Have All the Good Times Gone','Pretty Woman', and 'Dancing in the Street' are listenable, or I couldn't think of a good reason to own this one.Thankfully they followed this one with the incredible '1984'!!!

From: Rocker65 Date: August 5, 2003 at 2:32
I don't have this album but I think that it can be worse then Van Halen III.

From: sparkyass Date: January 25, 2004 at 2:14
hey, its still van halen(not that hagar crap)!!!!!i love this disc, hang em high kicks major ass, little guitars is great,check out eddies solo on secrets,in a word ,awesome!!!!

From: Impaler Date: February 23, 2004 at 0:33
Still a fun album but probably the worst of the bunch until 'Balance'.

From: Atomic Punk Date: February 28, 2004 at 11:32
This is Edward's least favorite album as well...'Too many covers'. But it still kicks some major butt! Hang Em High and The Full Bug are great high energy rock tunes typical of Halen. Crank up the volume for Intruder...very powerful and magestic sounding. And Secrets and Little Guitars add some unigueness to this album as well.

From: Mike h Date: June 3, 2004 at 21:29
LITTLE GUITARS is a great song, probably the only good song on the cd in my opinion.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 30, 2004 at 16:31
The weakest Dave-era album. The covers are both good ('Where Have All The Good Times Gone' and 'Dancing In The Streets') and bad ('Pretty Woman'). Of the originals, 'Little Guitars' is the best. 6/10

From: Uusiolli Date: August 5, 2004 at 22:21
If you only will buy one Van Halen album. Don't buy this one. Or any after Roth-era. This is just an album. 6/10

From: Metalhead66 Date: November 17, 2004 at 13:20
This is the one everybody loves to hate! Some call it the David Record,others say they lost it.Well there are the few of us who love this also!!Little Guitars,Cathedral,Secrets these alone are worth the price of admission..Some others were... well...maybe over thought. At the time this was released,you could not find a copy at the Record stores cause they were flying off the shelves..NO BRAKES....WE'S FREEWHEELING!!!!9/10!!

From: Propane Date: December 3, 2004 at 16:11
This one was a disappointment because of the commercial lean. I still like it but little did I realize at the time, this was the obvious direction they wanted to go in. Too much commercialism on this one.

From: TomSawYa Date: December 7, 2004 at 11:15
Where had all the good times gone ? DLR on his way to 'california girls'. Sad sad sad.

From: Priest On E Date: April 6, 2006 at 16:46
Meh fuck all you naysayers. This is Van Halen! Sure sounds like Van Halen. Still similar production. And, as usual, still diamonds in the rough mix somewhere. Little Guitars is awesome, so is hang em high. I even like Cathedral, fuckin good little bit o synth (sign of things to come). Still head and shoulders above the Hagar albums, this is in a different league, it has an attitude.

From: edwithmj Date: September 25, 2009 at 12:29
Where Have All The Good Times Gone is OKish but just another dull tuneless number. Hang em High is another terrible song. Cathedral is a good solo. Dancing in the street and Pretty Woman are the only slightly listenable tunes on this album. The rest is showcases David's obsessions with bluegrass.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 25, 2009 at 17:54
Bluegrass? You serious? I agree that this is a pretty piss-poor record, though. Probably the least of the DLR years. Just too many covers and dumb instrumentals. "Hang 'Em High" and "The Full Bug" are the only good original songs, and "Pretty Woman" is all right. The rest is eithe rtotally useless or just plain bad. Or both.

From: hair metal again Date: November 13, 2014 at 3:05
very good release once again by the mighty VAN HALEN back in the early 80 s !astonishing musicianship ,attitude,style and the star quality of a top class band!"where have all the good times gone","secrets" are the highlights and the only thing that dislike is are the covers!VAN HALEN rocks

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 13, 2014 at 16:38
"Where Have All The Goood Times Gone" IS a cover, dude. Obviously not as welll known in its original form as "Pretty Woman" or "Dancing In The Streets," but a cover all the same. I can't think of who did it first, offhand. Fleetwood Mac, maybe?
