Arguably Their Best Album

In my younger years I was all about "Panama" and "You Really Got Me". Fair Warning is for the more mature VH palate - a broodier, "browner" delivery throughout, but an album that remains both exciting and interesting from start to finish. I never tire of this one and I hear something new every time.

The opening of "Unchained" is arguably the greatest 25 seconds in rock n' roll history.

Flawless and unique.

I wouldn't care if anybody else liked this record, 'cause it is my unequivocally favorite rock album of all time. After 35 years, I'm still absorbing the genius distilled in this record. I bought the tape in '81 after just having discovered their then previous release, "Women and Children First." A couple of decades later, when I bought my first CD player, this was the first CD I bought to build my new digital music library around. Yes, it's that important. Every song on this record is uniquely VH. The imitators never even tried to touch this. Eddie lets everyone know that these songs are above your pay grade.
