On the DVD “Van Halen: The Early Years”, the entire band has gone on record by saying they hated this album. After listening to it I can understand why. This album was a spotlight of songs that David Lee Roth enjoying jamming when he was young and impressionable (was he ever impressionable? lol). What he and the boys were thinking when they put a CD together that was made up of mostly covers is beyond me.
This album is the VAN HALEN hang over album. This is the one that if you had a hard night of drinking you would wake up beside one of the ugliest fattest nastiest humans alive that is smiling and calling you “baby”.
Although the covers sounded great this wasn’t the right time for them to be covering other people’s music. However, there it is and I’ll leave to you all as listeners to decide. (Online June 25, 2004)
