Sound — 10
The sound will blow your mind. Eddie Van Halen is one of the best guitarists of all time. On Eruption, he plays the guitar so fast that I was completely blown away. The albulm's sound came before their 80's albulm 1984. Alex Van Halen is also excellent on the drums. The sound to me is pure gold.

The lyrics are classic rock. They take you back to a time when rock was all about good fun. David Lee Roth's Vocals are right on the money. It's a shame he left the band.
Overall Impression — 10
I'm amazed how no one has wrote a review for this albulm. Van Halen's albulm is one of the best rock albulms of all time. The sound is killer. Eddie's guitar playing skills are amazing on the albulm. Try playing eruption on the guitar. It's not that easy. If it was stolen I'd chase the punk down and get it back. For anyone who yearns for a taste of good rock with sick guitar playing look no further than Van Halen's Self titled cd. this cd is a must own for guitar players. It's that essential.
