    Default 1980 - Women And Children First

    Nice look back at WACF. New podcast / review from very knowledgable VH fans. Damn that album rules.

    apparently the first episode of this podcast is on Dave's "Eat Em & Smile"
    Looking forward to listening to both episodes. Thanks for the tip.

    WACF is the epitome of CVH for me.

    Actually, 79-81/82, just has that certain magic.

    I'm with you 100%.

    I like FW the best --- but WACF is a super close second and think it's probably the sweet spot in the middle of those years for the epitome of CVH.

    Not to mention the cover pic too

    My favorite of the CVH era. The whole album exudes rock n' roll attitude as only Van Halen could produce.

    I was surprised that dude thought the "off the cuff" shred solo bit, Ed does during the intro to FOOLs, was
    sloppy.

    It's anything but.

    The man's left hand is just so strong & fluid with all those crazy pull-offs, not sure how it could be thought
    of as sloppy.

    Ed does some muting on certain notes, which maybe the guy thought were mistakes.
    The muting makes it sound super aggressive & forceful.

    FOOLS is just killer.

    All those little "answer" licks Ed sprinkles in against Dave's vocals, plus that mean see-saw riff.
    Love it.
