5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime..., 23 Feb 2013
An absolutely beautiful album from two former members of The Bothy Band. Compared to the high octane powerhouse that was The Bothy Band this album has a much more laid back, mellow feel, but does not suffer as a result of this. The fiddle playing is as good as it gets on here, using very creative use of double tracking on occasion to great effect. The vocals are delivered in a haunting manner, especially on the classic Lord Franklin. The guitar playing is equally beautiful with a slight jazz influence creeping in at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bon's crowning glory, 5 Jan 2008
This is Bon Scott's finest hour, his vocal delivery and his lyrics are outstanding throughout. The band are seriously grooving on every track, laying down a deadly bluesy feel all the way through. Check out "Gimme a Bullet", "Down Payment Blues", "Riff Raff", and my personal favorite "Gone Shootin". The production is also worth a mention, great work by Harry Vanda and George Young.

5.0 out of 5 stars Desert Island Disc, 5 Jan 2008
For some strange reason, when I first heard this album, many years ago, I didn't like it. I knew "May you never" which is not very representative of the rest of the album, but that was all I knew. A few years later I happened to hear "Over The Hill" one night and it blew me away. I went out and bought the album straight away, cursing those foolish young ears that had dismissed this timeless classic. These days hardly a week goes by without me giving this a whirl. From the title track through "I Dont Want To Know", "I'd Rather be the Devil", "Man in the Station" and the previously mentioned tracks, each ones a gem delivered in a beautifully hypnotic, lazy slur. Buy it or live to regret it.
