With AC/DC's entire line of albums being re-issued, and after excellent reviews in Total Guitar, I decided to chance £11 on this album, despite the fact I couldn't remember the last song of theirs I'd heard, and the fact my stepmum can't stand them. I bought it more for Angus Young's playing style, which I'd heard so much about. Described by the legendary Zakk Wylde as "the blues on steroids", Young's solos are, basically, the simple things done very, very well. The solo to What Do you Do For Money Honey is particularly refreshing to listen to, even if you aren't sick of endless fancy stuff.
I was surprised at the fact that I didn't find Johnson's high-pitched voice annoying. Despite not demonstrating a large vocal range, he delivers the songs superbly. The rest of the band is good in support, especially Angus's brother Malcolm, who actually plays a lot of the riffs.
In all, this is a good album even if you haven't heard any AC/DC songs before. For budding guitarists like myself, Young's style is interesting to listen to, and proves that you don't need effects pedals and multi-FX units to sound good. He simply plugs his guitar into a Marshall stack and that's it. Inspirational.
