5.0 out of 5 stars AC/DC`s 1st European Release & Its Great., 15 Sep 2006
This review is from: High Voltage (Audio CD)
This album drips with classic song after classic song. Even today they still play songs off of this album. The Opening track "Its A Long Way To The Top [ If `Ya Wanna Rock `n`Roll] is simply one of the Rock/Metals best most single minded tracks ever. A classic that has been wheeled out at every Heavy Metal disco around the world since it was released. And it`s got Bagpipes in it as well !!!
"Rock`n`Roll Singer" is one of those tongue in cheek moments that Bon Scott did so well. "The Jack" shows the bands & Bons sense of humour off perfectely a song about VD deliverd as a tune about playing cards. This song is still played in the bands set even today its simply a legend of a track "Live Wire" has one of the greatest intros to a Metal tune ever a pumping bass line leading to a light chord delivery before they turn it all up & go for it. This used to be the song the band started there live set of with for years & it still gets aired at gigs occasionally. "TNT" was one of the bands encore numbers for years & they wheel it out even now. "Can I Sit Next To You Girl" has Bon back on his Tongue in cheek form again, Great tune with a great Rock`n`Roll intro. "Little Lover" & "She`s Got Balls" the titles say it all really fun fun fun. before there anthem "High Voltage" ends the album. This is one of those simple tunes you wished you`d written & has been in the bands set for 30 years. This album is better than most of the modern Metal Stuff we`ve been getting for the last decade & it`s 30 years old !

In an era of overblown souless metal this takes you back to a time when Rock/Metal was fun. Simple as Hell but dripping a great sense of humour & loads of great stomping fist pumping air guitar playing fun. If you don`t have this in your Rock/Metal collection then your collection `aint worth anything'!!!Go buy
