5.0 out of 5 stars Underated 20 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
I personally have always prefered this album to Back in Black (only just), I just think that there are 1 or 2 more, slightly,weaker tracks on BIB.Songs like COD & Spellound are almost forgotten classics and some of the rifs are so minimal yet the songs are just awesome. Topping off this album are Brian Johnsons awe inspring vocals. I don't think there was anyone in the world who could have pulled off those vocals like he did, his range was mind blowing and the sheer power in his voice really took the band up a notch I thought. I think everyone talks about Bon Scott in preference to B.J. but I think he gets a rough ride. Don't get me wrong I LOVE Bon Scott's work but let's be absolutely honest, Brian Johnson sang the Bon Scott songs with ease, Bon Scott couldn't have sung the B.J. songs

in the same way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Follow-Up to Back In Black 5 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
Obviously not as good as BIB but still a necessary purchase for any AC/DC fan.
There are 4 excellent tracks on here:
FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK (WE SALUTE YOU)
I PUT THE FINGER ON YOU
EVIL WALKS
COD
There are a couple of other songs that are good, namely NIGHT OF THE LONG LIVES and LETS GET IT UP.
Overall, great album and definately worth buying!

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
To any rock initiate's looking to sample Ac/Dc's classic, some say simple rock form, then this should be third on their list of wants after "Highway to Hell" and "Back in Black". The quality of this album however ensures it still receives a five star rating.
Hitting the No. 1 spot in the US in 1981, the Brian Johnson led 'DC continued to produce the kind of rock power riffing that other bands could only wish to aspire to. Listen to the opening track, "For those about to Rock...", at full blast in your car and you'll know exactly what I mean. Even the cannons at the end of the track sound in tune. This is just the start of it, as the remaining tracks are also up there in the "classic" status. Hopefully any real ACDC aficionado would agree that listening to tracks 1 to 10 in succession will keep you bobbing your head in rock unison. This is especially true from relatively unknown tracks such as "Put the Finger on You", "Snowballed" and the stop start fantastic riffing of "COD". To be honest its songs like these that I wish the 'DC would dust off and bring back to the live circuit. Well one can dream!
All in all, "For those about to Rock" is a spectacular album that any new AC/DC fan should own. Especially if they've only just awoken to the fact that "Stiff Upper Lip" ('DC's brilliant new album) has recaptured the sound of old.

3.0 out of 5 stars All cannon and no balls 6 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've tried and tried to like this album more over the years but it still remains, for me, one of their most dissappointing releases. Lets face it how do you top or even equal the power and glory that is Back In Black? The title track is the best song on the album by a country mile, and is the only one they still play live from this album. Lets Get it Up was a hit in the singles chart, and is a reasonable AC/DC number but pales into insignificance when compared to the incredible back catalogue that preceeds it. Reviews at the time were unimpressive, but due to the bands increased popularity following BIB and their fantastic live shows, this record sold very well especially in the US where, I think it topped the billboard charts. This particular release includes badges, keyrings etc which will only be relevant to the die hards, so if you want to check it out purely for the music go for the earlier remaster for less than a fiver. OK methinks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power, class, style....another classic album 23 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is one hell of an album. Different to Back In Black in that the songs, whilst having big choruses, were not necessarily radio-friendly as much as tunes like You Shook Me All Night long or even Back In Black itself. The band went for an enormous production, again via Mutt Lange, but although it's a huge sound, it's not lacking in character or over-produced. The songs are interesting, unique in places, diverse, and among the most inspired the band have come up with. A real hard-rock album, a long way apart from something like Powerage, yet still with the band's hallmark all over it. Brian Johnson at his peak was an awesome, one-off vocalist (still sounding like no-one else and doing a decent job today by the way), and although he was perhaps enduring slight vocal chord nodules around this time, his performance on this record is pretty stunning from start to finish. Angus' solos were drenched with the usual superb, wide vibrato and flowing blues runs, and the whole thing hasn't aged at all in the last 25 years. In my opinion, AC/DC made 6 classic albums in a row: Powerage, If You Want Blood, Highway to Hell, Back In Black, For Those About To Rock and Flick of the Switch. An amazing band.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inject the venom 11 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
In which the group lets Mutt Lange finally realize his vision of stadium-tooled rock bereft of any dynamic range and buffed of every rough edge that a rock band has in anything resembling a state of nature. Helps that Brian Johnson's got the emotional range of a hot dog. It's not a total disaster--the brothers Young are still delivering solid if unremarkable riffs--but aside from the opening salvo of the title track and the closer "Spellbound" there's absolutely nothing here that could conceivably necessitate expanding the casual fan's collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars The greatest rock band ever
This isn't one of their best albums, but i still like it. I love all the Bon Scott albums, and it would be difficult to come up to that standard, but its still worth buying.
