  • This was vocalist David Lee Roth's final record for the band and as such, the album stands as a testament of worth somewhere between high camp and high class. Eddie Van Halen's venerable, rolling guitar pulled immaculately into place, while his new-found love of the keyboard gave them their first international smash with "Jump." However, it is the quite demented rush of "Panama," and the hilarious "Hot For Teacher," with Roth exuding a droll litany of school-yard fantasies over a thunderous Alex Van Halen backbeat, that gives ultimate credence to the rock 'n' roll party that was the Roth/Van Halen partnership.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - #81 in Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Albums Of The 80s" survey. (November 1989)

Q (5/95, p.136) - 3 Stars - Good - "...12 years on, it sounds fine, thanks to its ability to surprise and its dextrous, disciplined execution..."

Billboard - "[W]hile it marked the beginning of a hugely successful era -- the next four VH albums would debut at No. 1 -- it marked the end of Roth's first tenure with the band..."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.52) - "[T]his may have been Lee Roth's swansong, but he left on the highest of notes."
