    It used to be Fair Warning.

    However, my favorite album from the original era is Van Halen II.

    So many great songs like Somebody Get Me a Doctor and Light Up the Sky!

    My order mirrors yours, although I go back and forth with 1984 and WACF for 4th and 5th places.

    Really, the only thing I would change about the entire six pack is drop DITS and PW.

    Classic Van Halen. Best there ever was or ever will be.

    1984

    Easily my favorite of the Roth era and objectively the band’s best album.
    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"

    My favorite?

    The Orwellian Classic

    The best?

    Well, that's a whole 'nother cat we gotta skin...

    1. FW
    1b. VHI
    2. 1984
    2b. VHII
    3. WACF
    4. DD

    ...that's it. That's the order AND the ranking. Simply because I CANNOT, in good faith, rank WACF as CVH's "fifth best", nor can I rate DD as CVH's "sixth best".
