While the New Wave of British Heavy Metal was underway eight time zones away, the Californian rockers that made up Van Halen finally got into the studio in 1977 and recorded basically everything they had - including cover songs, a very common practice for early hard rock albums - live in making Van Halen, one of the most celebrated debuts of all time.

Eruption has to be one of the greatest solos of all-time! This album is simply legendary!

Without doubt VHs best effort. Each song full of memorable hard rock riffs. Standouts are "Runnin with the devil" (which still belongs to my favourite songs), "Aint talkin bout Love" and the perfect closing track "On Fire".
