Description
1984 (stylized in Roman numerals as MCMLXXXIV) is the sixth studio album by American rock band Van Halen, released on January 9, 1984. It was the last Van Halen studio album until A Different Kind of Truth (2012) to feature lead singer David Lee Roth, who left the band in 1985 following creative differences. This is the final full-length album to feature all four original members (Van Halen brothers, Roth, and Michael Anthony), although they reunited briefly in 2000 to start work on what would much later become 2012's A Different Kind of Truth. Roth returned in 2007, but Eddie's son Wolfgang replaced Anthony in 2006. 1984 and Van Halen's debut are Van Halen's bestselling albums, each having sold more than 10 million copies.

Controversial from many angles. Some of the big hits were derived from Eddie’s new love of synthesizers, but in other places, it’s business as usual, rocking out just as heavy – if not heavier – as ever, on tracks like “Girl Gone Bad”, “House of Pain”, “Panama”, and “Hot for Teacher”. “Jump” propelled the group into mainstream consciousness for a long time, but for my money, “I’ll Wait” is a better track in that style. Still, it’s hard to argue with the hooks, musicianship, energy, or anything else that these two tracks offer.
