Van Halen (Women And Children First) 1980

08.06.10 Review

Most people point to 1984 as the first time Eddie uses keyboards on a Van Halen album. That just isn't true. Any fan of the band knows full well that it made it's debut here on Women and Children First. Yes, it was disguised by running the keyboard directly through a Marshall amp with phase FX applied to it to give it that crunchy "guitar" sound. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't know that when this was released. How would I know that? I was just a pup back then.

Anyways, I have always loved this one. A lot. First time I ever heard Everybody Wants Some!! I was floored. The Drum intro and interlude with the ba-duuuuuuum, ba-dum power chords and wailing guitar noises still kicks f*cking ass. 

Fave Songs: And The Cradle Will Rock..., Everybody Wants Some!! Fools...Awww hell, all of it!!


New review coming soon as I'm not satisfied with my old review. To bare bones to my liking.
