Van Halen: OU812 (Day 32 of Albums: 365 Mkll)


(Connection to previous album: Sammy Hagar was the singer for HSAS and was the singer for Van Halen)

I can say that OU812 might be the best Hagar led VH album.  Not as polished as FUCK and not as experimental as 5150 but it is the most rockin' of the 3 in regards to songs, vocals and attitude. Funny. It's the one record of those 3 that doesn't have an actual producer.  It's like Sammy took the lead and dictated the direction of the band.  No. 1, 4 million sold. Mission accomplished. 

Songs: 3.0 Ds

Performance: 3.25 Ds

Influence: 4.0 Ds

Overall: 3.75 D's
