''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 Bros. Records.
''Skyscraper'' was issued shortly after the commercially and critically successful ''Eat 'em and Smile'' World Tour of 1986-1987. ''Skyscraper'' 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.〔(The Daily Vault review )〕 Retrospective reviews tend to evaluate the album more favorably.〔(Allmusic review )〕
Although Roth's 1988 Skyscraper Tour was successful, many fans and critics who had felt disappointed by Van Halen's post-Roth, keyboard-heavy sound expressed similar dissatisfaction with ''Skyscraper''. Guitarist Steve Vai (who co-produced ''Skyscraper'', and wrote a majority of its songs,) and bassist Billy Sheehan, who formed the core of David Lee Roth's solo band, left the group over various controversies regarding ''Skyscraper''.
