One comment on “VAN HALEN – OU812

  1. The problem with OU812 is it’s best tracks are the ones that sound the least like Van Halen. I give Eddie and Sammy credit for working outside of the box and trying the bluesy “Black and Blue” or the country fusion of “Finish What Ya Started” and writing one of the best power ballads of the 80s “When It’s Love”.

    But when Van Halen tries to sound like old Van Halen they fall flat on tracks like “Sucker in a 3 Piece” and “Source of Infection”. The album just doesn’t rock as hard as it should.
