Top 20 albums of 1984: 17

Not my fave Van Halen, but my first. BMG Tape of the Month club, 2nd album I ever owned after ZZ Top Eliminator... So many great memories tied to this album, ranging from my one of my first beers while on a motorboat trip down the Colorado River to being my somewhat obvious sound track when Mrs COld and I visited Colombia's neighbor to the north two years ago. Thanks for the shred, the tapping and the tone, Eddie.

I'll always have a place in my heart for 'Jump'.

Jump was the low point on the album.

Too much keyboards...
Otherwise would have been an excellent record.

Stunning Cactus

This album is such a solid release. Behind all the poppy hits, you have truly incredible art such as Top Jimmy and Girl Gone Bad.

The album that I can listen to by Van Halen. Van Halen 1 was the other one that was solid and innovative for 1978. However in between those 2 releases, the other albums are filled with filler.
