The Greatest Party Album Ever!!,
This review is from: Van Halen II (Audio CD)
I just recently bought the remastered version (which sounds amazing) and I'm dying to get in my car and blast it while cruising. Of course, being in my 30's and with a wife and son, I would look pretty silly doing that. But that's the power of this album; it takes me back to when I was 16 and my friends and I actually DID cruise around blasting this to the heavens. Not having heard this in many years, I can't believe how strong this sounds. Another reviewer said that this was the greatest summer album ever and I would certainly agree, since all the topics covered (women and partying) are best at that time of year. Additionally, I would much rather hear an album that's barely 30 minutes long and filled with nothing but killer, than hear the usual, bloated 65 minute CD's made today and have to skip tracks. You just DON'T skip any tracks here and now I'm thinking where I'm going to cruising for chicks (Don't tell my wife!).
