5.0 out of 5 stars It's amazing this album is not released worldwide., 4 Nov. 2004
This review is from: T.N.T. [Australian Import] (Audio CD)
Early AC/DC releases have been torn apart, cobbled together and resold in various territories in such a way that nobody but the Australian consumer can delight in the sheer joy that is listening to albums like TNT from start to finish, as intended by the band. Sure, it lacks the polish and poise of later albums, but it makes up for this with buckets of raw, naked power, and a menacing intensity of a rock band doing it hard on the road, and giving every drop of blood and sweat to their cause.
"It's a Long Way to the Top" was the anthem that put AC/DC on the map, it's lyrics a timeless essay warning of the perils of risking it in the music business. You can trust Bon Scott, he really means every word of this classic song.
"Rock 'n' Roll Singer", "High Voltage" and "Rocker" see Bon laying it on the line. This is who I am, this is what I do. Spelling it out for us, that he, and the rest of the band were born to rock. "Rocker" redefines the word "frenetic".
"The Jack" tells it how it is... A slow, tough blues/boogie that says "I screw around, I'm a dirty guy, I screwed a dirty girl and I paid the price".
"Live Wire" and "T.N.T." might sound like chest-beating and posturing, lyrically, but these riffs are so damn tough, the music so brutal and heavy, the tunes deserve to sound as dangerous and threatening as Bon's lyrics make them.
"Can I Sit Next to You Girl" and "School Days" connect AC/DC with their past. Their influences, and their youth, and with the teenagers that grew to be a mighty army of supporters. This album still has all the trademarks of a slightly derivative boogie band still finding it's feet, whilst heralding a future where AC/DC distill all that is hard and heavy in rock music, with the honesty and street-wise wisdom of a bunch of working class boys out to take on the world, regardless of the cost.
Why, oh why is TNT not available all over the world in it's original form? This is a crime against Rock. It must be addressed.

I used to have this and High Voltage (red sleeve and a photo of a generator?) also on Aussie Albert's blue/yellow lable. Yeah, I kinda agree that It is a crime, but the people in the music industry wouldn't know how to piece together a great album if their li ves depended on it. Let's face it, it's not GREAT Britain any more, it's more like BUDGET Britain 'cos every thing's done dirt cheap. Oh, yeah, the audio was stunning. Razor sharp. You wouldn't need a cd if you could get this LP. Rock On, Colin Allen

I have it on double gatefold vinyl bought in Oz for me by grandparents........ you missed out Rocker after T.N.T by the way....(catalogue number APLPA-016) from 1975. This was the best period of ACDC in my view - Blues/Boogie/Rock...and some of the best lyrics ever....
