  An Incredible Album

| | See all RigNumber13's reviews (3)

This is simply one of the best rock albums, of all time ever. It is a shining example of the genius of AC/DC.
Buy it, put it on the hi-fi, tun it up and enjoy rock music at it's very best.

Great album, and to me, AC/DC Bon Scott Era's best album, better than Highway to Hell, with the Let There be Rock Video one of the best AC/DC Music Videos. Really strong stuff on thsi album, Whole Lotta Rosie and Let There Be Rock are real strong songs, and really show the talent of AC/DC.

  My favourite!

This was my first AC/DC experience and the best! To climax with A Whole Lotta Rosie as well! A truly memorable album and one that all rock fans should have in their collection.

  The Greatest rock album ever!!!

This is the rawest and greatest rock album you will ever hear , recorded live in the studio and possibly no overdubs this is AC/DC AT THEIR BEST!!! Track down the Aussie version of the cd with "Crasbody in blue" on it rather than problem child , something that AC/DC purist will know about.

  Avoid comparisons with 'IYWB'

Because this album shares a lot of material with the live work of art 'If You Want Blood (You've Got It)', it's a disappointment. Don't think about that - it's got some good songs on. The only thing is, 'Whole Lotta Rosie' and 'Let There Be Rock' will never be the same without that faster pace and live sound.

I saw them in concert five times at the Glasgow Apollo that was over twenty years ago, I'm a mum with teenager kids now who agree this album is the BEST raw rock can ever get.....Bonn Scott RIP.

  Their best.

Forget 'Highway to Hell' or 'Back in black' this is the one. Every track a killer and the production is just how I like it, the sound of the amps 'humming' and a real dirty sound! Rumour has it that Angus Youngs amp caught fire during the solo for the title track and they kept on recording!

  Spontaneous purchase paid off!

| | See all Lorenzo1's reviews (27)

This is the best £7.00 any rock fan could spend! This album is phenomenal. I had never listened to AC/DC before but I decided to purchase this because I had heard a friend raving about them. Now I know why! All songs are proper "tunes", the way they used to make them; you just don't get bands like this anymore. Highlight of the album has to be "Let there be Rock".

If you are a fan of bands like Motorhead, The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kiss and ZZ Top then you will undoubtedly love AC/DC! Pure class!

  This is a whole latta AC/DC

| | See all TheBishopOfPinner's reviews (71)

I never bought an AC/DC album or even heard much of their music till I heard Whole lotta Rosie on the radio and that changed things! This is a marvellous collection of great driving rock ideal for the motorway. This album is relentless in its pulsating rhythms and if you only get one AC/DC album, you wont get much better than this - superb!

  AC/DC at their best. Absolute classic.

The 1977 release of 'Let There Be Rock' finally brought together the proficiencies of AC/DC onto one electrifying rock'n'roll album, capturing not only their prowess in the studio but also the feel of their extraordinary live performances. The album opens with the foot-stomping 'Go Down' (dedicated to super-groupie, Ruby Lips) and incorporates one of Angus Young's (lead guitar) best overdriven solos to date. The likes of 'Dog Eat Dog', 'Bad Boy Boogie' and 'Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be' clearly show that the band are water-tight and know how to combine a pure rock'n'roll groove with sheer power. 'Let There be Rock', the title track is a furious, breakneck anthem extoling the virtues of what matters most; straight up, no nonsense, hard, rock'n'roll. (Whilst recording this track Angus' Marshall stack caught fire but the producer left the tape rolling in order to capture such a monumental solo). The infamous 'Whole Lotta Rosie' winds up the album, (a dedication from Bon Scott (vocalsl) to a special female friend of 'larger proportions') in style.

Consistently heavy riffs from Malcolm Young alongside the rock solid drums and bass of Phil Rudd and Mark Evans, punctuated by the most blisteringly wild solos ever to come out of a Gibson SG make this album an absolute classic. Bon Scott's signature squeal and camp improvisations sit perfectly with the heavy power grooves of the rest of the band.

Enough said, go and buy this now! It's a piece of rock history.
