5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific follow-up to a classic., December 22, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Van Halen II (Audio CD)
The always tough task of following up any hit album is apparent throughout music. But what if that debut album is perhaps one of the top ten best albums of all time and not some 90's garabage, wannabe crap. Van Halen expands their musical range somewhat here, but still uses the same basic format that served them so well on VH1. Songs like "Outta Love Again", "D.O.A" and "Somebody Get Me A Doctor" aren't as memorable as "Runnin' With The Devil", "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" and "Jammies Cryin", but they are still truly great songs and album rock staples. To go along with that, VH actually shows more diversity on VH2 as they add pop songs like "Your No Good" and "Women In Love", a classic ballad in "Dance The Night Away" (which was the bands first real major hit, charting at no. 15) and even a tongue and cheek, pre pop metal song in "Beautiful Girls". Though VH2 is not quite as good as its predesescor, it is another classic album by any decent standard in the rock and roll cannon. Van Halen 2 is certainly well deserving of the nearly 6 million albums it sold in the U.S. alone.
