In truth, very few albums deserve 5 stars (which seem to get thrown around the reviews section like confetti at times), but with 'Powerage', AC/DC delivered a bonafide classic. Everything seemed to come together on this record - the songs, the lyrics, the riffs, and not a filler in sight. The superb production job of Vanda and Young completes this gem. Not only is this the greatest AC/DC album, but it's quite simply, it's one of the best Hard Rock records ever made. It's very difficult to pick highlights, but 'Down Payment Blues' has always been my favourite, closely followed by 'Gimme A Bullet'. Angus Young was at the top of his game at this time (1978), as was the still much missed Bon Scott (has there ever been a more charismatic frontman?) This, and the same years' live 'If You Want Blood...' are the band's 5 star masterpieces. Many AC/DC retrospectives claim 'Highway to Hell' is the best, but good as that is, it fails to meet the standard of 'Powerage' due to a few fillers and Mutt Lange's too polished production.

I have to complete this review with a complaint directed at Sony - other reviews have mentioned the absence of 'Cold Hearted Man'(on the original UK/European version of the LP). This track is only available on download from connection to the official website via this CD. Fans don't need this gimmick, what they do need however, and deserve, is this essential track included on the CD where it belongs. Furthermore, the digipack format is not welcome at all, it is prone to fingerprints, damage and dust. Sony and all other companies, please take note!

I gave it 5 stars, not three!!

This is the motherlode, the record where Malcolm, Angus, Bon, Phil and new boy Cliff hit the peak of their creative powers and produced an absolute masterpiece of simple, grooving, tough, bluesy rock n' roll. Every song is brilliant, it's all highlights.

To see them live at this point in time was to witness the finest high energy rock band ever at their thrilling, frenzied best but this studio offering presented them in a new, surprisingly and wonderfully grown up light. The novelties and gimmicks had gone and been replaced by songwriting, structure and lyrics of the highest quality, while the sound still had that fantastic raw edge that George Young and Harry Vanda managed to capture best.

It's the sound of a band utterly confident in its abilities but still resolute in its conviction to record uncompromising music unswayed by commercial pressures. It's also the much missed Bon Scott's finest hour as a singer and lyricist. Rock and roll music does not get better than this. An album for the ages.

One small gripe about the remaster - "Cold Hearted Man" should be on it.

There are enough long reviews about this album detailing each and every track, and I could write one too, but it's simply not needed. Everyone needs a comparison in a review to latch onto and sum things up for them........ This album is Bon Scott's `Back in Black'. At worst some tracks are good, but most of them are outstanding hard rock songs. Not a weak track on there and a phenomenal package. More thundering and consistent than Highway to hell in my opinion, and when you consider the quality of that album, you appreciate just HOW good `Powerage' must be to warrant such a comment. Essential listening for any rock fans and criminally overlooked by many in rock journalism fraternity. Buy several copies as backups and to lend out to educate those around you!

Powerage is probably their best album. Its just got something thats hard to describe, a kind of mean gritty attitude but always looking forward. I think its got something to do with the late Bon Scotts outlook on life, Born to Lose-Live to Win and even if you can't win at least try to have fun on the way! I think Powerage, of all Bon Scotts AC/DC albums, gets the message across on this album the best. Oh and 'Downpayment Blues' is THE best AC/DC song ever....so now you know.

This is AC/DC`s best album buy far. OK it`s fare to say it`s an AC/DC fans AC/DC album but don`t let that fool `ya. This album doesn`t have the hits of Highway or Back in, but all the songs on this album are good catchy tunes in there own right. This version is the best, it has backing vocals on it. These were removed from the original european vinyl version but i think they improve what was allready an outstanding album. As has been pointed out in another review i also miss Cold Hearted Man. But at least this time round we get "Rock`n`Roll Damnation" . This has both Angus & Malcolms best guitar sound they ever got in a studio buy far. The arrangments of the songs show a growing maturaty. This was a band on the up & it shows. The lyrics also show a greater maturity as well Bons famous sense of humours still there but now there`s a genuine sense of menace & desperation of the hard life. "Down Payment Blues" "Gimme A Bullet" "Up To My Neck" "Riff Raff" My personnal fav track is "Gone Shootin" again showing a darker side of life type lyrics, even " Sin City" has a dark brooding edge. It`s worth noting that even the band themselves think this is there best kept secret, Buy it & find out why !!
