5.0 out of 5 stars One of Their Most Colourful 4 Oct 2010
By M. G. Chisholm TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I remember Angus Young being interviewed on R1 when this came out. He said the main difference between this album and the last one was the colourful record sleeve. I think that he was right on the money on two counts. Firstly, of course the album is cartoon like and quite appealing to look at. However I think that Angus was suggesting that this album compared to Flick of the Switch is far more varied and has much more appeal and accessibility. If you think about Flick of the Switch, it does come across as stark and hard, whereas this one is colourful and accessible, despite the fact that it is one of AC/DC's harder efforts. It optimise's the hard rock sound of the mid 80's perfectly. Loud, brash and fun.

All of the songs are good and some are excellent and can compete with AC/DC's best output post Bon Scott. Sink the Pink, Fly on the Wall and Danger are simply brilliant headbanging toe tapping songs. All the rest support perfectly.

I have every AC/DC record made, like many of their fans and I can honestly say that this has been one of the most played of them all. It is much derided by some and I don't understand why, because it really is a great piece of work. For me this is the last of the records made with Brian Johnson for a while that pull together like a collection. This belongs with that great period of time when their best was made and it easily slips into the group with Back in Black, For Those About to Rock and Flick of the Switch. After these we've had a series of less good albums generally until their return to form with Black Ice.

Overall without a doubt their most underrated album of all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not one of there best, but still a good album 10 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album was the follow up to the hugely underrated flick of the switch, and whilst hair metal and mtv were dominating the world of music, ac/dc just stuck to there guns and produced quite possibly there heaviest album to date. The sound is poor on the original recording, so my advice would be to purchase the remastered version.
1. Fly on the wall - a great way to open the album, a very good song - 8/10
2. Shake your foundations - one of the best songs they ever recorded - 10/10
3. First blood - not one of there best songs - 6/10
4. Danger - this is my favourite on the album, reminds me of night prowler - 10/10
5. Sink the pink - shows just how dirty the boys can be, another classic song - 10/10
6. Playing with girls - a good song to keep the album ticking - 8/10
7. Stand up - I love the chorus to the song - 8/10
8. Hell or high water - probably the worst on the album - 6/10
9. Back in business - good riff, good chorus - 7/10
10. send for the man - not a good way to finish the album, they could have chose a better song from the cuts - 6/10
Fly on the wall is a good follow up to flick of the switch, although it is definately not better, i would recomend to any fan that they buy this album just for the pure raw sound, but for gods sake make sure you buy the remastered version!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good! 25 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
Okay, Fly On The Wall is not AC/DC's best album but I still think it's good and I am not a hardcore fan that likes every song of theirs. Their opener song, "Fly on the Wall" is very good, and so is "Hell on High Water."
But there are two songs that would go in their greatest hits collection, "Shake Your Foundations" is one of my favourite AC/DC songs ever and "Sink The Pink" is also very good.
There are a few other good tunes in this CD and should definately be worth buying despite being heavily criticised.

5.0 out of 5 stars So underrated! 6 Nov 2007
By kingboy
Format:Audio CD
Just like FLICK OF THE SWITCH, this has got to be one of the most underrated albums ever! AC/DC deserve a lot of credit for making a solid rock album like this, and there are some tracks on here that make you want to get up and go crazy!

Track picks include "Fly On The Wall", "Back In Business" and "Send For The Man". Don't listen to people who think this is a poor album. This album rocks!

However, on a minor note, I do think that this album could've done better with Brian's vocals. Brian Johnson is an awesome singer, but here his vocals are echoey and that's probably what turned a lot of people off. But this album, I think, is a hard rock classic like BACK IN BLACK.

Essentially my review for Flick Of The Switch could be copied here, so I won't repeat myself.
Not disappointing, just not one of their best.

This is an album that gets consigned to the scrap heap by many fans as their worst. I think this is due to the poor production, which is a shame as there are quality AC/DC moments here "Shake your foundation", "sink the pink" "playing with girls" and "hell or high water". As said what lets this album down is the production, Brians vocals are way down in the mix and unintelligible at times plus there is a horrible 80's reverb on the drums. Had they got the production right I do not think it would be so hated. Personally I really like it as I contains some balls out rocking that was missing from the Mutt Lange produced era. Overall not their best by any stretch but well worth a spin. Maccer
