Is Van Halen Van Halen’s Best Album? Nick DeRiso: Objectively, this is their best album. I don’t think, pound for pound, there’s any denying that. For most of its length, Van Halen plays like a greatest-hits album, just one great song followed by another followed by another – and so many of them are radio staples. Matt Wardlaw: I'm not sure that it's their best, but it's an astounding piece of work. But, like so many people, I can remember hearing the album for the first time and right from the moment that "Runnin' With the Devil" came on, I was blown away. The whole album is full of so many moments that you're just scratching your head going, "How did they do that?"

The third Van Halen album hit the streets in 1980. The band had a lot of live up to, coming off of the success of the first two records. With Women and Children First they knocked it out of the park. Truthfully, it was a decent record, and I loved getting a new Van Halen album, but at the same time it wasn't like the old days. I’m sure they know this. What’s Next for Van Halen?
Eddie Van Halen and Slim Jim Phantom of the Stray Cats hang out together at the US Festival. High points included Somebody Get Me a Doctor, where Eddie unveiled Girl Gone Band during a mid-song break that also included Cream’s I’m So Glad, and a ripping version of Everybody Wants Some, where Dave’s right hand seems glued to his unusually large cod-piece. The intensity of the show could best be summed up by the thick clouds of steam rising of Alex’s sweaty back.
