Van Halen - Women and Children First

'Women and Children First' is the third studio album by hard rock/heavy metal band Van Halen. When talking about favorite Van Halen albums the debut is probably the first to be mentioned, while 'Women and Children First' seems to be underrated. However, this is when Van Halen got a bit heavier then they already were.

This and the next album is probably Van Halen at their heaviest, with some straight-forward heavy metal moments mixed in with their already hard rocking sound. This album speeds, shreds, and drives itself into the listeners ears beginning with the opening two songs 'And the Cradle Will Rock...' and 'Everybody Wants Some!!' which were the most popular songs from the album. These songs certainly do deserve their popularity, being excellent hard rocking opening tracks. What comes after is one of my favorite Van Halen songs, 'Fools'. This is simply one of the best examples of a driving song, with one of the most addicting riffs I've ever heard. All the instruments fit together so well, making it difficult to not stomp your foot to the thumping bass and driving guitar. 'Romeo Delight' is another awesome hard rock song with some more thumping bass and catchy guitar work. During the middle, Eddie Van Halen gives a solo that wouldn't sound out of place in a heavy metal album.

The short 'Tora! Tora!' sounds like it came right out of a Black Sabbath album, with dark diminished chords before flowing right into 'Loss of Control', which has some killer shredding reminding me of Motorhead. If you want a fast shredding song with some killer bass as well, then this is perfect. 'Take a Whisky Home' is another one of my favorites, starting out with catchy acoustic guitar mixed with some bluesy vocals from Lee Roth. The acoustic guitar transitions nicely into bluesy Aerosmith-esque riffing. Michael Anthony is a pretty underrated bassist, giving some extremely catchy grooves all throughout the album especially in the aforementioned song.

Overall, I know many think the debut is Van Halen's best, I've always thought that it suffered from filler. However, apart from 'Could This be Magic?' this album never stops rocking. This and the next album are my personal favorites from Van Halen. If you want some fun hard rock/metal, you can't go wrong with this album or 'Fair Warning'. Hope you found this review helpful.

Feel free to comment!

My second favourite VAN HALEN album after the debut.I know a lot of this has to do with the year 1980 because i was having the time of my life and this cassette was a big part of 1980 along with "Highway To Hell","Back In Black","Permanent Waves","Heaven And Hell" and more. I met the green eyed blonde after i had already purchased tickets to this concert,so it was one of the rare concerts she didn't go to with me.Instead me and three buddies went down to Toronto on a hot summer's night to see the boys play at Maple Leaf Gardens on their "Women And Children First" tour.Probably the hottest i've been at a concert.We were way up in the Grey seats and it was so humid and hot in there.I even remember after the concert in the parking lot after 11 pm how warm it still was.They put on an amazing show.That was the only time i've seen them live. "And The Cradle Will Rock" seems pretty immature now but as a 19 year old i loved it.I remember giving my girlfriend's sister and her boyfriend a ride somewhere and i put this on.After we got to the destination he said "I've got to get that album !" My sound system was really good and the second track "Everybody Wants Some!!" sounded amazing.Love the tribal drumming to start.Eddie comes in half way through lighting it up. "Fools" is dark and and Eddie puts on one incredible performance early on on this the longest track."Romeo Delight" is where they pick up the pace.Ripping it up !"Baby please,can't take it anymore !"Killer stuff.Attitude man. "Tora! Tora!" is only a minute long and half way through it turns SABBATH-like then blends into "Loss Of Control".Love this song. "Take Your Whiskey Home" is my favourite song on here.I like how it starts with acoustic guitar and Roth singing before it turns dark and heavy.Check out the bass here."Could This Be Magic?" is a good acoustic tune. "In A Simple Rhyme" is a song that moves me for some strange reason. This album is all about bringing back those crazy memories from a time long gone.

Women and Children First was one of the last Van Halen albums that I acquired way back in the day when I was in the Van Halen album purchasing mode. This album is one of their least memorable releases, although songs like And The Cradle Will Rock and Everybody Wants Some are amongst their hit songs. There are no cover songs on this album. Tora! Tora! is the 1 minute to shine instrumental which leads into Loss of Control, but nowhere near as good as previous and future instrumentals. Possibly my least favorite Van Halen album, but still a worthy purchase and a fun album to listen to.
