Intro: AC/DC has been through alot in the decades they have been making music. You have one era that by todays stanards sounds like blues and hard rock mixed. Then another era where it sounds like Metal. Both eras are great. AC/DC is one of those bands I wish I had more from. They have great riffs and songs and I hope that they will be around for many years to come

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
For awhile I went on a AC/DC kick I was familiar with "Whole Lotta Rosie" but all in all the album was good. Kind of bluesy in spots but bluesy is good. But by 1977 standards it definitly was a heavy album for it's time. It goes into rotation anytime I am on a AC/DC kick

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
The last album featuring lead singer Bon Scott and By Far my favorite Bon Scott era album based on my exposure to this band, Of all the AC/DC albums I have I play this one the most. Tracks like Highway to Hell, All Over You really make the album for me, sadly it would be the last album AC/DC does with Bon Scott as he died in 1980 RIP Mr Scott

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
The original review I put up for this album had me on the fence. I originally gave it a 5 but after giving it more of a chance I had to redo this review and change the rating, So I give it a 9 and Its safe to say that I Really like this album , it carries the trademark ACDC sound. Which means Rippin guitars and Awesome drumming, A few favorites are Rock N Roll Train, Big Jack, Anything Goes, War Machine, and Skies on Fire

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
This could be called a collaboration album or a Greatest Hits album from this band, but It's the soundtrack to Iron Man 2, It's a must have for any fan of the band whether you like the Bon Scott years or the Brian Johnson era its a must for any fan I Repeat ANY FAN!! I got the one with the bonus DVD which I've yet to watch, while I am familiar with alot of their stuff there was a few songs I was not familiar with but really did like. There's no fillers on this Soundtrack
