Background: Released in 1986, 5150 was the seventh album by Van Halen and the first to feature Sammy Hagar on lead vocals.

The album reached #1 on the U.S. charts and #16 in the UK. gave 5150 a 4 star review:

From the moment the album opens with the crashing “Good Enough,” it’s clearly the work of the same band — it’s hard to mistake Eddie’s guitars, just as it’s hard to mistake Alex and Michael Anthony’s pulse, or Michael’s harmonies — but the music feels decidedly different. … And so Van Hagar was a bit of an odd mix — a party band and a party guy, slowly veering into a bourgeois concept of respectability, something that eventually sunk the band — but on 5150 it worked because they had the songs and the desire to party, so those good intentions and slow tunes don’t slow the album down; they give it variety and help make the album a pretty impressive opening act for Van Halen Mach II.
