So this album is 37 years old and many reviewers have gone into detail about the music so no point in me adding my quota. All i can suggest is, for those of you who enjoy the band's more popular and commercial material, i can only advise you give this a try. If you still prefer Flick Of The Switch, Fly On The Wall and the recent Black Ice and the like well good for you.
'Go Down' is a great start. Not a classic but a good, beefy, filthy start, the riffs being that little bit meatier than of those past. 'Dog Eat Dog' is a typical catchy rocker that AC/DC can just do. The title track is by now immortal and it is a huge song. 'Bad Boy Boogie' is one of the also-rans of the album. It is a fine, rocking tune but it lacks a certain edge and quality that the others have. Then comes the aforementioned 'Problem Child' as a replacement for 'Crabsody in Blue' from the australian version. The excellent and almost bluesy 'Overdose' comes next. Slow and dirgey but has such power and such a riff that it becomes an almost classic. Then the actual classic 'Hell Aint A Bad PLace To Be' kicks in. It's good ;). Followed by ANOTHER belter 'A Whole Lotta Rosie'.
First true band classic and a monster of an album. Despite it's release date it still sounds fresh today, which is why these songs will exist for a very long time.
This album used to play havoc on my Binatone record player, but things have moved on a little since then hi-fi-wise. However, the essence of the music is just as memorable as it ever was. Up until the death of Bon Scott, AC/DC could do no wrong in my eyes and with the re-release of these early albums as re-mastered additions there is all the reason to replace your old vinyl copies.
'Let There Be Rock', 'Problem Child', 'Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be' and 'Whole Lotta Rosie' stand out.
The lavish artwork is great too. Buy.
