    Great. Two excellent tracks IMO: "Unchained" and "Mean Street". This album has a completely different ambience than thier first three.

    One Foot Out The Door is a cool track but as an ending a bit of a let down. I voted great on the strength of a few tracks myself. Mean Street, Unchained, So This Is Love, Sinners Swing...all in all a solid album. :grinthumb

    As Lou said, guilty of fillers that bring it down somewhat.

    This was the beginning of the end for David Lee Roth's first tenure in VH. He wanted to continue with light hearted party rockers, and Eddie decided to put his foot down and Fair Warning was the result.

    The Debut is a 9.75 Classic on my scale, this one is a solid 7.
