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
Top Customer Reviews
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".
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.
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.
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.
