Van Halen by Van Halen on Apple Music

Editor’s notes
When you talk about the greatest records of hard rock party music ever, Van Hallen’s debut is right up there with the best of them. Young Diamond Dave is a samurai on the microphone – spinning, somersaulting and slicing through the humongous sound of glorious theater. Eddie Van Halen is an incarnated innovation; on rippers “Runnin ‘With the Devil”, “Jamie’s Cryin'”

; and “Ice Cream Man”, the guitarist’s coldly precise harmonious post-Hendrix licks and riffs transform into the ecstatic screams of alien robots. “Eruption”, his mind-bending solo piece, represents a whole new language in feedback, distortion and technique.
