    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    On Fire, Beautiful Girls, In A Simple Rhyme, One Foot Out The Door, House of Pain ... Van Halen certainly knew how to close out an album back in the day.

    I'll second the "WACF is darker than FW" sentiment. I only found out years later that FW was supposed to be "dark". I think the cover influenced that opinion a bit. Sinners Swing, Hear about it Later, Unchained, So This is Love, Sunday Afternoon and One Foot OUt the Door are all "up" songs with energy. Even Mean Street is only "dark" due to the lyrics. The feel of the song is pretty sunny to my ears.

    Is this guy confusing Michael Anthony's Bass solo with Edward?
    My exact thought. I wonder if that reviewer moonlighted as a video producer for rock bands....cutting away from the guitar player during the solos to show the singer preening or the bass player of course.

    HARD ROCK: VAN HALEN AT THE GARDEN

    By Stephen Holden

    Published: July 20, 1981

    DESPITE all the talk about a commercial resurgence of prerock styles of pop, the music that is keeping the record business afloat is the heavy-metal brand of hard rock established by Led Zeppelin in the late 1960's. And the triumphant appearance of Van Halen, one of the heaviest of heavy-metal rock groups, at Madison Square Garden on Friday was impressive evidence of the style's commercial strength.

    This sold-out concert wasn't merely a musical event but a three-ring circus with the southern California quartet's flamboyant lead singer, David Lee Roth, serving as ringmaster and its lead guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, as right-hand man.

    Clad in a gaudy gladiator's costume and tossing his shoulder-length blond hair, Mr. Roth put on a Dionysian performance whose bumps and grinds, high balletic kicks and strip-teasing maneuvers amounted to a one-man burlesque show. And when not singing or prancing, he regaled the crowd in the theatrically condescending tone of a carnival barker act as master of ceremonies for a children's television show. Mr. Van Halen, for his part, wielded his guitar like a lethal weapon, playing it with his teeth, even jumping up and down on it in a mock frenzy.

    The music was about as extreme as the genre gets, with thunderous power chords creating a deafening wall of sound that rendered both the group's blues-based tunes and lyrics almost completely unintelligible. In a way it was a shame, because its latest album, ''Fair Warning,'' is one of the better heavy-metal records of recent years and reveals Mr. Van Halen as a guitarist with more range than most of his peers. But the audience of teen-agers, who remained on their feet from beginning to end, didn't seem to care. They got the spectacle they wanted. Stephen

    The lyrical content and imagery Dave conjures up is darker on FW, but the rawness and unhinged energy of the music on WACF is darker to me.

    Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love is VH's most iconic track #4, but Romeo Delight and Hear About It Later might be their best 2.

    Medium brightness not too dark not to light.

    Perfect luminance.

    Happy Trails was a tongue in cheek cover to end Diver Down. Otherwise, I would add The Full Bug to that list of great album endings.

    RD is my #2, HAIL my #7 in my all time top 10 VH songs. ATBL might sneak into the top 20, but probably more likely in my top 30.
