Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

What Highway to Hell has that Back in Black doesn't is Bon Scott, AC / DC's original lead singer who died just months after this album was released. Scott had a rusty, raspy, scream of a voice, like he might break into a coughing fit at any moment. In other words, on crunchy, hook-heavy metal classics like the title track and on "Get It Hot" which is more roadhouse rock than metal, he had the perfect instrument for such wild-living anthems. Too perfect, it turned out. --David Cantwell

AC/DC didn't get any better than this. The tunes are killers, the guitar playing is phenomenal, the vocals see Bon reaching his apex. The production on this record is as dry as a bone, and locked down tight. Buying this on CD, after listening to it on an old tape for years, has made me fall in love with it all over again. Superb hard rock.

From the opening chord to the last this album never disappoints. Bon Scott never sounded better. DC have been accused of making the same album over and over again, which is probably true, but they do it so damn well! If you love proper Rock music you should already own this album (shame on you if you don't). If you need an introduction to AC/DC this is the place to start.

ac/dc will be doing well to better this excellent example of an album that just works,great songs,great songwriting,and still sounds great over 25 years after its release,yes it is their defining album,bon scott was the definitive ac/dc vocalist,i aint being disrespectful to brian johnson who has been his replacement for over 26 years,its just that bon brought a dirty rock n roll snarl to the vocals which complimented the blusey rock and roll that the young brothers dished out on guitar.there isnt one bad song on here,songs like the legendary highway to hell,walk all over you,if you want blood,shot down in flames and touch too much are all on here and they are cracking stomping rock n sleaze roll numbers,its a pretty flawless album,its a fun album to listen too and it deserves to be listened to loud,you will salute them after this,magical album

This is where it all began and this is where it all ends..
You can pick any of the Bon Scott 'DC era albums, cos they're
all pretty much as good as each other, but Highway To
Hell put them on the map.

If you're new to rock music or just coming of age or even trying to
remember how it is to not care..then this album is your best mate.

If you absorb these songs and still can't score with a chick, or be
the-man-about-town then nothing can. Bon will hold your hand and show
you around, show you how easy it really is, to be rock n roll.

Tales of sexual fantasies, fightin, rockin, drinkin and gettin
lost along the way, all dressed up in an utterly groove-laden classic
hard rock beat..you'd have to be too boring to not "get it".

AC/DC hit their peak with this masterpiece of boogie rock, and it was immediately followed by the death of vocalist Bon Scott.

This album contains all the inventive wizadry of Angus Young's lead guitar and Bon's effervescent vocals.

This is the album with the classics on - Touch Too Much, Shot Down in Flames, Highway To Hell. Each track has its own character and feel, and each has a real buzz with the guitar. Bon was a bar-room poet with thinking man's lyrics about real life. Sometimes the topics aren't all that, but he always sounds good.

This is a full-metal album but there's plenty of melodic riffs and the rhythmn section is second to none. A real party record. Bon belts out each track but doesn't resort to the modern faux-aggression of a gutteral growl. His attitude is enough.

Each track seems to have just come together by magic. Top metal record.

One look at the cover of Highway to Hell tells you so much about the music which lies therein. The devil in Angus, the cheek of Bon's grin, Malcom to the fore - like his riffs, Phil and Cliff in the background holding their end up.

Highway to Hell opens with the eponymous tune. A brilliant atmospheric tome all about life on the road in a rock 'n' roll band. How is it that AC/DC wrote so many songs on the subject of being AC/DC and never once sounded up their own arses? However, Highway to Hell (the song) is their best effort at summing it up.

The songs then keep coming. They keep coming with such a force, with so much energy but also with a tenderness which only Bon Scott could manage (sorry Brian) until the genius of Nightprowler. A song about watching your girlfriend getting undressed without her knowing you're there. Bon sings it with such feeling, passion and pulls off a trick which so few songs do these days. You're there with him, you can envision the setting in your mind's eye. Then it (with hindsight, very sadly) ends with Bon's ironic farewell.

If you're reading this having never heard this brilliant album, you owe yourself the pleasure. Then you owe your friends the pleasure also. If your parents hate guitar music, They'll hate it even more when they hear this, its THAT good.

Seminal.

this is the ac/dc album before the infamous 'back in black' album, but it's better in my opinion. i wasn't all that impressed with 'back in black' because it only really had SOME really good songs. this album has nothing but extremely good songs. this album also has singer bon scott whose vocals suit ac/dc's music alot better than his replacement.
but enough with comparisons
the album starts with the title track - an awesome song that you have to have heard. if you liked that song then you can get a feel for what to expect from the rest of the album (that's not to say it all sounds the same though!). other reviews might point out 'girls got rythm', 'touch too much' and 'shot down in flames' as the highlights. i would agree if not for the fact that this might be ignoring some of the other songs. this is one of those few albums that is, from start to finish, brilliant. 'if you want blood' has a great sing along chorus, 'love hungry man' is a slower track but no less fun, 'get it hot' is short sweet and great fun while 'night prowler' finishes the album with the longest song and some great guitar work. the other tracks though are just as memorable and this whole album sums up the spirit of rock n roll. you probably won't ever hear another album of this genre that beats it.
so if you thought 'back in black' was good, if you like rock music, or if you just like a good fun listen then you should hear this - you won't be disappointed.
