Only EVH can make the drill into a musical instrument. Poundcake! Top of the World also sounds great.

From: Mike G. Date: July 25, 2001 at 14:17
Great album!! One of the best Sammy era albums!! This album rocks from cover to cover!!!

From: Dennis Clark Date: July 31, 2001 at 11:15
The greatest and the best album w/ Sammy Hagar. I always imagined myself playing Poundcake live. It's been 10 years but i haven't gotten over it, the album is just great.

From: Rockforever Date: July 20, 2002 at 11:06
I agree that this is probably the best Van Hagar album.True,it does lack some of the variety of OU812,but it makes up for it in sheer power.FUCK rocks from start to finish;it rocks harder than any VH album since Fair Warning. Poundcake is a thunderous opener,while Judgment Day is a more lyrical rocker.316 is a great solo spot for Eddie,Right Now sports some great piano,Top of the World closes it in style.Spanked does have some embarrassing lyrics,but,c'mon this is a great album.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: August 16, 2002 at 22:02
Real good production on this album.

From: Baris Date: September 17, 2002 at 3:14
This is a very provoking VH-Sammy album. Sound is harder than other VH records. There is a super intro by 'Poundcake' and continuation with 'Judgement Day'. 'This Dream Is Over' and 'Top Of The World' are also great songs. Still exciting years after its release.

From: nitrodoll Date: September 17, 2002 at 18:23
agree with anyone above..also one of my favorite van halen discs... nitrodoll favorite song: judgement day, and this dream is over.. very good video for 'right now'.....)nitrodoll

From: manos Date: February 21, 2003 at 4:19
With the best album Van Halen ever released, one needed to hear only 20 seconds of the first trach to understand what is going on here! it is useless to point Eddie's significance as a player as he is the most influental guitar player of the century. But what about this unique sound? It is an explosion! Anyway, Right Now was always my favorite song and there are some great songs here that easily remark Van Halen's career. This album for me is full of memories. Thank you for the music

From: TIM Date: February 21, 2003 at 5:54
Runaround, 316, and Top of the World are my fav's. This one is full of good music though.

From: LM Osasuna Date: June 25, 2004 at 8:14
I can't stand people that mistreat the Sammy Hagar area! Maybe David is 'The Hard Rock Frontman' but all the Hagar recordings are good enough to worth your money. This album has very good tunes and the vocals are greats. I enjoy a lot the guitar experience in pleasure dome, simply wonderful.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 30, 2004 at 16:38
This album is more back to the '5150' sound after the dissapointing last album. They turn out some of their best Sammy-era songs in 'Right Now', 'Top Of The World', and 'Runaround'. But I never get the urge to really listen to this album a lot. It's fine, but nothing special. 7/10

From: Uusiolli Date: August 5, 2004 at 22:34
Somebody said only EVH could make the drill into a musical instrument. Well Mr Big's Sheehan and Gilbert played duet with drills. This one is not my favourites. 6,5/10

From: Rycheage Date: August 5, 2004 at 23:52
Other than VH classics 'Poundcake', 'Runaround', 'Right Now', and 'Top Of The World', the rest of the disc is rather forgettable. 'Man On A Mission' deserves honorable mention. 6.5/10.

From: Calogero Date: November 14, 2004 at 6:33
The Best 'VAN HAGAR' album so far. VAN HALEN died the day DIAMOND DAVO quit the sisters.

From: Propane Date: December 3, 2004 at 16:26
Pardon my rant, but I kept listening to these things hoping they would get better, being the long time Sammy fan (since Montrose days) htat I am; Another commercially acceptable pile of trash, sounds amateurish. Ranks right up there with Bon Jovi.

From: gugahardrock Date: June 6, 2006 at 11:31
The best album of the best band!!! Nothing to say, just hear it

From: erik Date: July 12, 2007 at 2:53
For me also their finest moment with Sammy ( whom i saw perform twice with VH and man did they rock and can this guy carry a tune live ). Poundcake, Runaround, In and Out, Man on a Mission, Right Now, Top of the World. Killer songs. Fantastic album 9,5/10 Muy bueno y Recomendado

From: BIG-TIME Date: February 29, 2008 at 15:18
Don't really sound like VH, Sammy is there but thats it for me on this album, no big hooks or choruses just not into this album at all...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

From: pie75 Date: August 22, 2010 at 4:41
propane you are an idiot some of your reviews are amatuerish this is a great rocking album better then ou812 but not as good as 5150 sammy's here is amazing he brought the van halen songs to life and eddie with the power drill intro to poundcake is amazing not a bad song on here pleasure dome would be the worst and that's not bad judgement day is an awsome riff, and sammy shines on runaround,in and out and the brilliant right now eddie's 316 is a nice guitar part also that he continues to use live

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 30, 2011 at 14:14
Kind of an underrated disc, as there are several strong album cuts, making it a little more consistent than OU812, although the highs aren't as high. "Pound Cake" is cool but a bit too long, and "Judgment Day," "The Dream Is Over" and "man On A Mission" are all good. "Runaround" is easily my favorite here, and one of my favorite Van Hagar songs from any album, a true gem. "Top Of The World" has a good intro riff, but sounds too forced in the end, like background music for a corporate pep-talk video you'd be required to sit through at work. "Right Now" is even more tha tway, and sounded like a Pepsi commercial even before it became one.

From: hair metal again Date: September 25, 2014 at 3:55
