The album that made me want to play guitar, Van Halen's debut is by know doubt their finest output.Nothing else they've made tops this or will top this.David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen both have a certain fire on this record that can never be topped.Alex Van Halen is actually my favorite drummer of all time, and Micheal Anthony shows us the bass is not just a backbone instrument.This, IMO, is the third greatest debut album of all-time.It's just of rock 'n' roll's masterpieces.The album also has a great live feel to it that's hard to make.Standouts include the legendary solo "Eruption", the classic Van Halen song "Ain't Talkin 'Bout Love", and my all-time favorite VH song, the blistering "Atomic Punk".Such a great album that will always be one of my favorites.

Standout Track:
"Atomic Punk" http://grooveshark.com/s/Atomic+Punk/4bXB9D?src=5
