This one of the most influential rock based albums ever, only Sgt. Peppers and King Crimson beat it
I can name at least 20 better rock albums (one album/artist)
1. Physical Graffiti
3. Sticky Fingers
4. Sgt. Peppers
5. Welcome to Sky Valley
6. Who's Next
9. Definitely Maybe
11. Highway to Hell
12. L.A Woman
13. Electric Ladyland
14. Toys in the Attic
18. A Night at the Opera
19. Songs for the Deaf
20. Fair Warning
>Van Halen and all those other goofy, party Hard Rock bands from the 70s and 80s had more or less the exact same lyrical content as modern mainstream Rappers
>Yet the Hard Rock feels like 100% more heartfelt and musically creative
Why is this?
Generally speaking, yeah those are the great albums. In between is hits + filler and a covers album.
Fair Warning has a reputation as a "heavier" or even "darker" release but i dont think van halen is that type of band where elitism is appropriate.
okay cool, thanks anon. the thing that I liked the most was that it was fun, so for now I'll skip fair warning
any anon here likes kiss? I've only heard alive and that was nice, should I bother with anything else?
It doesnt though. It's half amazing 10/10 songs and half absolute shit. It's worth hearing just for Hang Em High, The Full Bug, Little Guitars, and Where Have all the Good Times Gone? Some of their best material.
Where as Pretty Woman and the instrumentals are such shit.
>Night Prowler is the same as Beating Around the Bush
VH aren't niggers
Fair Warning is objectively the best VH album
>Skipping Fair Warning
Kiss is a meme
No. It makes it more distinct and sound like it's live. If Eddie double tracked his guitars they would sound more like every other hard rock band of the time. This way you can also hear his incredible guitar playing more clearly. He is a very underrated rhythm guitarist.
