We gave it a B+

Hard-rock stud Hagar sure didn’t mind flirting with disco during his pre-Van Halen solo career. This best-of CD, Unboxed, from the early ’80s is stuffed with all kinds of cute synthesizer hooks, and Hagar’s falsetto sounds amazingly like the late transvestite disco star Sylvester. In the grungy ’90s, nobody sings silly mall anthems about fast cars and fast girls like these anymore-and that’s too bad.
