VAN HALEN Van Halen II (2000) (RMST) (WARNER BROS. RECORDS) (10 TRACKS) 320 Kbps MP3 ALBUM

Album Description:

 VAN HALEN II is the second album by American hard rock band Van Halen, released in 1979. While it was hard to follow up a classic, VAN HALEN II comes close to matching the brilliance of the band's immortal debut. Once again, the record begins with a fat bass line from Michael Anthony, and his piercing background vocals are featured on "You're No Good," an explosive cover of the Linda Ronstadt tune.
 
While the group's early material was slightly too heavy for Top 40 airplay, here they take a commercial stab with the brilliant "Dance the Night Away" and "Beautiful Girls." "Somebody Get Me a Doctor" features the trademark wails of David Lee Roth, and Eddie Van Halen's magical soloing. Alex Van Halen's playing takes a slightly complex turn on "Outta Love Again" with some funky drum fills. Eddie shows his versatility with the gorgeous, flamenco-styled solo "Spanish Fly." The band kicks it full throttle once again on "D.O.A.," which accelerates to a mighty finish. "Women in Love" features lessons from Mr. Roth on dealing with female fickleness. VAN HALEN II would go on to become a huge success, selling more than 5,000,000 copies in U.S. alone and reaching the U.S. Top 10. This remastered version of VAN HALEN II leaves the band sounding better than ever.
 
The actual recording of the album took place less than a year after the release of the band's eponymous VAN HALEN. Many of the songs on this album have been known to exist prior to the release of the first album, and are present (in various forms) on the demos recorded in 1976 by KISS' Gene Simmons and 1977 by Ted Templeman, including an early version of "Beautiful Girls" (then known as "Bring on the Girls") and "Somebody Get Me a Doctor," (The album version is only slightly different than the demo versions).
 
The black-and-yellow guitar on the back of the album is buried with Pantera's guitarist Dimebag Darrell. Eddie Van Halen placed it in his casket at his funeral because Dimebag had said it was his favorite. However, Eddie himself stated in interviews that the guitar itself was not actually used on the VAN HALEN II album, as it had only been completed just in time for the photo shoots for the album. David Lee Roth allegedly broke his right foot making the leap and accidentally landing on the bottom of the microphone stand also seen in the picture on the back cover.
