"The Collection II" brings to the fore a critical era in the rich history of Van Halen, showcasing the period during which Sammy Hagar took over as the lead vocalist after the departure of David Lee Roth. This collection compiles four consecutive albums that topped the charts, presenting a well-rounded depiction of the Hagar era and its remarkable influence on the band’s musical direction. Let’s delve into what makes this collection a must-have:

A Glance at the Era

The Sammy Hagar period heralded a fresh and more melodically inclined Van Halen. The band embraced a matured sound, which was a departure from the raw and frenetic energy that characterized their earlier works. It was a period of reinvigoration and exploring new musical terrains.

Album Highlights

  • 5150 (1986)

    • Marking Hagar's debut as the lead vocalist, this album brought a more synthesized, polished sound to the forefront. Songs like "Why Can't This Be Love" and "Dreams" epitomized the new melodic focus, steering the band into a poppier territory while retaining their hard rock roots.
  • OU812 (1988)

    • Continuing to build upon the newfound synergy, this album showcases the band’s diversity, with tracks ranging from the hard-hitting "Black and Blue" to the softer, contemplative "When It's Love."
  • For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge (1991)

    • A return to a heavier sound, this album features some of the most robust tracks of the era, including "Poundcake" and "Judgement Day." It earned the band their first Grammy Award for "Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal" with the song "Right Now."
  • Balance (1995)

    • Reflecting a darker, more somber tone, the album is tinged with introspection, with tracks like "Can't Stop Lovin' You" portraying deep emotions and reflecting the changing dynamics within the band.

Studio Rarities 1989-2004

  • Bringing together rare gems that span over 15 years, this compilation is a treasure trove for enthusiasts, offering a glimpse into the rich reservoir of the band’s unreleased works during this period. The inclusion of the non-album B-side "Crossing Over" is a particular highlight, showcasing the band’s explorative spirit.


"The Collection II" is more than just a compendium of albums; it is a meticulous chronicle of Van Halen's journey through a decisive era. It portrays a band in transition, a band not afraid to reinvent themselves, while embracing a new vocal dynamism brought by Sammy Hagar. This collection is a testimony to Van Halen's unparalleled ability to evolve and adapt, making it a pivotal addition to the collection of every Van Halen aficionado, offering not just nostalgia but a rich musical experience woven with rock anthems and rare gems that echo the vibrant spirit of a remarkable era in rock history.
