Following the career low point of Fly On The Wall, and the stop-gap Who Made Who, Blow Up Your Video was an album I'd written off years ago. I bought it as an LP back in the 80's and don't ever remember having particularly fond memories of it. I recently decided to update my AC/DC back catalogue. This is an album that had some surprises.

It starts as I expected. Heatseeker and Thats The Way I Wanna Rock n Roll are as I remembered - catchy enough, and worthy singles at the time, but fairly formulaic 80's fair from AC/DC. The next 5 songs remind me why I lost my way with this album. Meanstreak, Go Zone, Kissin Dynamite, Nick Of Time, Some Sin For Nuthin are all very, very average. They're not awful, but they don't stand out in any way, and at this point you could easily give up on this album (as I did all those years ago).

Then, 2 very pleasant surprises. Ruff Stuff is a really fantastic bluesy groove. The subject matter is typically sleazy, but it swings along brilliantly, with a really cool, understated riff.
The standout comes next - Two's Up. A song I had no memory of at all, but is now one of my favourite DC songs ever. It is reminiscent of songs like Hells Bells and The Razors Edge in it's style - dark, moody and very, very heavy. It builds slowly and menacingly, and then explodes into one of Angus Young's best ever guitar solo's. It is such a good song it makes the hairs on my neck stand up. A truly fantastic song, an overlooked classic.

The album ends on This Means War, a quick burst of a song, a poor man's Rocker from the Bon Scott era. Overall the album is nowhere near their best, but it has two hidden gems. For those who never gave this album any time, skip past the tedious stuff, and enjoy the highlights.

CD comes in a card/plastic package with a booklet insert. As far as the music goes, 'Heatseeker', 'Thats the way I wanna rock n roll', 'Meanstreak' (nice funky riff running through that one), 'Go zone' and at a stretch 'Kissin' Dynamite' are the best tracks here. There are some nice bits here and there on the remaining 5 tracks but nothing like AC/DC at their rip-roaring best. There's a song called 'Two's up' - typical bawdy title from AC/DC, but listen to it - it's an odd one because there's nothing upbeat or jaunty about it. In fact, musically, it struck me as sounding vaguely melancholic in it's delivery really! I bought this album for the first 2 tracks anyway which I had on 7" singles in the 80s. Agree with other reviewers who say the production is a bit flat, but still, even on a bad day this band piss from a great height upon a majority of yer modern rubbish. A half decent album then.

Bought this when it come out on vinyl and was instantly underwhelmed. 26 years later I decided to give it a whirl on Cd as it was only £3 and wow! Back in '88 I thought it was under produced, almost demo like but that was in the context of the overblown production around at the time. Now I think the production is excellent the only quibble being the vocal sometimes gets a little lost in the mix. It sounds organic, nice drum sound and of course guitar sound. Check out the rhythm playing on go zone. Lovely and crisp! So to the tunes. Heatseeker is the stand out. No other classics but nothing I would tar as filler either. Its a solid album that tries to capture the spirit of the Bon Scott era much more than For those about to rock. Every DC fan should have this.

A slight improvement on their previous 2 releases but not by much. As a few reviewers have noticed here, there is too much bland, so-so music going on. Flick and Fly had at least one really good track ('Nervous Shakedown' and 'Danger' respectively would be my picks) but Blow has a few good ones and a lot of average ones. None are terrible but the whole affair just seems rather boring. The production doesn't help either. There really is no power. Usually you can rely on a good, beefy riff to sear your eyelids to your forehead on an AC/DC album. Alas there is no such facial agony here... sigh.

I won't go through the lot as there are really too many 'samey' tracks, but my picks are 'That's the Way i Wanna Rock n Roll', 'Nick of Time' and 'Two's Up'. The latter sounds like a lesser version of their classic 'Ride ON' only not even close to capturing its grandure. The other 2 are decent rockers/singles etc. Ok but not mind blowing. Thankfully a little respect was garnered on their next attempt...

I hate to say anything bad about this band but this is the weakest of ACDC albums... My ideal tracklist should have been:
Heatseeker
That the Way I Wanna My Rock & Roll
Down On The Borderline
Go Zone
Nick of Time
Borrowed Time
Some Sin for Nuthin
Snake Eyes
Two's Up
This Means War

I cant believe people are giving this album such good reviews. Compared to Back in Black or anything earlier this is a pile of do-do. There are arguably 3 good tracks on here at a push. I considered this a complete waste of money the day I bought it and my opinion hasnt changed since. After Flick of the Switch (a good AC/DC album) they started having trouble keeping the filler tracks off the albums - this one is chock full of fillers. I would steer well clear there are so many better AC/DC albums.
