Skyscraper is the second full-length album by David Lee Roth, the original and current lead vocalist of Van Halen. It was released in 1988 on Warner Music.
Skyscraper was issued shortly after the commercially and critically successful Eat 'em and Smile World Tour of '86-'87. It hit #6 on the Billboard Top 200 U.S. album chart during February 1988, en route to selling two million copies in the U.S. alone. The album features one of Roth's most popular, international hit singles, "Just Like Paradise", which reached #6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Additionally, it features the acoustic ballad Damn Good, which reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard Rock chart.
At the time of its release, the eclectic, quasi-psychedelic "Skyscraper" divided public and critical opinion. Retrospective reviews tend to evaluate the album more favorably.
