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.

Timelord Thoughts.
Fly On The Wall is one of ACDC's heaviest rock album to date yet while not one of the bands greatest albums it is a far better album than it's given credit & is stunningly remastered sounding far clearer & sharper than it's original CD release, the Album comes with a booklet inside a shiny cardboard gatefold sleeve.

Fly On The Wall is a good song rock track that kickstarts this album off brilliantly while Shake Your Foundations is a outstanding track & the best track on the album in my opinion, First blood isn't so good however while Danger is another epic rock track & on equal par with Shake Your Foundations.

Sink The Pink is a dirty rock number that delivers as is Playing With Girls while Stand Up delivers a wonderful catchy chorus & showcases the true power of Brian Johnsons vocals, Hell Or High Water is probably the albums weakest track on the album.

Back In Business is a decent track with great riffs & another brilliant chorus while the final track Send For The Man is a seemingly lacklustre effort & a disappointing final track to finish the album.

Overall a decent ACDC album but not quite on par with the bands earlier efforts, As ever good production values, great guitar riffs from Angus Young & powerful bluesy lead vocals by Brian Johnson delivers a good but not classic ACDC album.

Timelord Rating.
7/10

For an album that was considered by many to be the worst they've ever done, its the one that gets the most airplay in mine and Im sure many other AC/DC fans collections.

For the purists of the AC/DC bluesy rock sound yes its fair to agree this album is awful as it couldn't be further away from bluesy rock if it tried, and yes its fair to admit the production is not the best and musically and lyrically its not up to the very high standards that were set before etc etc etc. So you have to ask what does this album have going for it?? Well the easy answer to this is its Heavy .... this is easily the heaviest album AC/DC have ever done and for that it kicks butt. Stick this on, crank up the volume, and if this doesn't get your fist air punching, head banging, feet stomping, then nothing will. The sound is raw, the tunes are catchy, but above all its loud and thats why us non purists love it.

So yes if you going to pick it to bits and compare it to everything that went before then you can probably find as many flaws as in a second hand jumper. But if you look beyond its faults, treat it as an individual album, and don't take it to seriously, then this album is great fun and its easy to see why many consider it not such a bad album after all and why it has a mystic charm for many AC/DC fans.

Along with Flick of the Switch, Fly on the Wall is evidence of somewhat of a creative slump for the band in the mid 80s. They returned to the fore with Blow Up Your Video but Fly... just didn't have the same vibe or quality of songwriting.

The title track is possibly one of the laziest they have produced. It is almost incoherently average with a (non)chorus that is not indicative of AC/DC at all. Quite a poor opening. 'Shake Your Foundations' has the trademark chorus but it feels slightly overused and dated. 'First Blood' isn't bad but it isn't gold either. 'Danger' is however. It is the best track here by a mile. It sounds like AC/DC, it has the slow, sleazy crawl of 'The night Prowler' together with the underlying dread of 'Sin City'. Not so much a classic as by far the best track on the album, making it gleam that much brighter. 'Sink the Pink' seems to be somewhat of a fan favourite but I cannot see why. It's ok at best.

Basically the rest are all very humdrum and average except for 'Stand Up' which is the only other saving grace of the whole album.

A shame that this and Flick... were so forgettable when compared with the rest of their back catalogue. This is one for fans and completists only.
