5.0 out of 5 stars Seminal hard rock. 1 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece!!! 11 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars the finest ac/dc album of them all 20 April 2006
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but not the Zenith!!! 21 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
Highway to Hell is the a great example of a Bon Scott album. The production is excellent with Malcom and Angus's brother producing for the last time, and they actually manage to get convincing backing vocals. The album is crammed with drunk anthems, ( the title song, if you want blood youve got it etc). The two greatest songs for me are shot down in flames, and touch too much. If you buy the bonfire box set you can hear the orginal demo versions of these songs, and its amazing to see how they changed for the final album release. This is a great slab of rock as it should be, no-nonsense blues ballsy rock and roll. However for me as great as it is, its not as great as Powerage ( the previous album), powerage had that earthy feeling of true genuis, highway to hell is more smooth and slick and designed to be that way. Powerage was accidental genius, and more in your face ear bleeding rock power. However that said go and buy this album play it at 10 and remember that true rock is not going anywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want blood...you've got it! 8 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
Often compared with 'Back in Black' but I think it is a completly different album. I bought Back in Black before I bought this and at first I didn't think Highway to Hell was any good. had just listened to the classic songs of Back in Black and didn't know what to expect.
I knew the famous, Highway to Hell before I bought the album I thius was really the only track that stood out for me. Once I had listened to the songs a few more times, Back In Black was struglling to get into my CD player!
My favourite song, If you want blood you've got it is underated in my opinion as well as others like Night Prowler. I think that at times Highway to Hell excels back in black. But the later album is more consistent and although Highway to hell is a classic, there are a few tracks which i like to skip while listening.
However, like I said earlier, the 2 albums shouldn't be compared and they are both great for different reasons.
If you want to listen to AC/DC you need three albums:
'Back in black'
'Highway to hell'
An AC/DC live album, 'If you want blood you've got it' (beacuse I prefer Bon Scott)

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight as a duck's arse 6 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit like an earthquake! 15 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Put this on and watch the blood, adrenlin and alcohol ouze out of your speakers, Angus Young was at his power riff peak during the period from the mid to late 70's, his guitar pounds into your brain with a non stop intensity throughout a collection of songs that reflect everyone's idea of the rock n roll lifestyle. AC/DC front man the fantastic Bon Scott lived the crazy dream and sadly it took his life not long after this recording, what we have left is the perfect testimony to raising hell. Play AC/DC with a few beers before a night out hedonistic numbers like love hungry man reflect the mood perfectly. Listen to this and you'll find that it puts most of the current indie and rock music on offer to shame!
