THE classic rock n roll album,
By A Customer
This review is from: Highway To Hell (Audio CD)
this is the ac/dc album before the infamous 'back in black' album, but it's better in my opinion. i wasn't all that impressed with 'back in black' because it only really had SOME really good songs. this album has nothing but extremely good songs. this album also has singer bon scott whose vocals suit ac/dc's music alot better than his replacement.
but enough with comparisons
the album starts with the title track - an awesome song that you have to have heard. if you liked that song then you can get a feel for what to expect from the rest of the album (that's not to say it all sounds the same though!). other reviews might point out 'girls got rythm', 'touch too much' and 'shot down in flames' as the highlights. i would agree if not for the fact that this might be ignoring some of the other songs. this is one of those few albums that is, from start to finish, brilliant. 'if you want blood' has a great sing along chorus, 'love hungry man' is a slower track but no less fun, 'get it hot' is short sweet and great fun while 'night prowler' finishes the album with the longest song and some great guitar work. the other tracks though are just as memorable and this whole album sums up the spirit of rock n roll. you probably won't ever hear another album of this genre that beats it.
so if you thought 'back in black' was good, if you like rock music, or if you just like a good fun listen then you should hear this - you won't be disappointed.
