Yes, it's true: AC/DC has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! For years, the coterie of insouciant folksters (too lame to call rockers) like Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and Bruce Springsteen are finally fading from the forefront as the Great Wall of Indifference erected against hard rock and metal begins to crumble brick by brick. Last year, the first leak appeared in the dam, when Aerosmith was inducted, but now a full-fledged heavy metal band of hard drinking blue collar boys has bust it open. Bon, whereever you are, I hoist a brew for you!
So, in the car this morning, I picked this under-rated gem to listen to to get my AC/DC fix, and I was not left wanting. The first time I heard this record, I thought "huh?" But after repeated listenings, it grows on ya. This was accomplished on a cross country drive across Canada: I bought the cassette in Kingston, Ontario, but by the time I left British Columbia and drove into Washington, we were like old friends.
One of the things that threw me for a loop was Brian Johnson's vocals; It sounded as though he were singing in an echo chamber, the miking was so far away. Good vocals, nonetheless, but too distant to grab you by the throat.
Angus and Malcolm's twin guitar attack is honed sharp as, well, a razor's edge, and I especially love the quintessential AC/DC pentatonic blues scale when employed on this album. Cliff's bass is thumping, and even though I'm a Phil Rudd fan, I like Simon Wright's drumming -- clean, somewhat jazzy, but it is a bit out of place on an AC/DC album; he's too free and loose with the notes, particularly on the ride and high hat cymbals. Phil, on the other hand, is a human metronome, but he's got a sweet sound, particularly when in sync with the bass guitar.

I didn't expect a whole lot when I picked up this album just recently due to the negative reviews and bad sales. This album, however, is just as good as many AC/DC albums of the Brian era. It does not reach the peak of Brian with Back In Black and doesn't touch any of Bon's work in terms of greatness, but I still love it for its different and darker sound.
A run-through of the songs-
Heatseaker: A little overated, catchy and crunchy guitar solo but the chorus doesn't hook you like it should.
That's The Way I Wanna Rock'N'Roll: An absolute classic! I don't care if this song was trying to be an anthem (ala For Those About.., It's A Long Way To The Top...), the riff is killer and the backround vocals kick some butt.
Meanstreak:Great and features some great writing! Not as rocking but an excellent change of pace.
Go Zone: Catchy riff, and good solo.
Kissin' Dynamite: Not bad, not great but still gets your toes tapping.
Nick Of Time: Great feel but suffers again from a somewhat weak chorus.
Some Sin For Nuthin':Should have been on the radio with That's The Way and Meanstreak, features a great bluesy riff and catchy chorus and great crunchy sound.
Two's Up: An excellent darker sounding AC/DC cut.
This Means War: It took me a few listens of this song to really get into it, but I love it's fast pace (ala Rocker from Dirty Deeds) and relentlessness.
This album doesn't get four stars from me only because it isn't perfect and therefore does not get a perfect rating. It does rock though. If you want to sample the best songs on the album before you purchase it, I'd say That's The Way, Meanstreak, Some Sin..., Two's Up, and This Means War are the choice cuts.

Three stars? Four stars? I ended up going with four stars after performing a simple test on this album:
I haven't listened to it for a long time (a couple of years, I think), but looking at the track listing, I could actually remember at least part of all the songs without too much trouble.
Can't say that about too many records, can you?
This album isn't as uniformly strong as "Back In Black" or 1990's "The Razor's Edge", but the hit singles "Heatseeker" and "That's The Way I Wanna Rock n' Roll" are great, and several of the "lesser" songs are very good as well, with only a little bit of filler ("This Means War" and "Go Zone").
I always liked "Nick Of Time", with its descending wail of a chorus, and "Ruff Stuff" and "Some Sin For Nuthin'" are great as well. This album will be a fine addition to your AC/DC-catalogue once you've got "Back In Black", "Highway To Hell", "The Razor's Edge" and "Let There Be Rock".

Format: Audio CD
1988's Blow Up Your Video is along with 1985's Fly On The Wall and 1983's Flick Of The Switch one of the forgotten album of Brian Johnson era AC/DC. It is an album which takes a few listens to to appreciate beyond the first two tracks. The standout tracks on the album are Heatseeker, That's The Way I Wanna Rock N Roll, Go Zone, Kissin' Dynamite, Nick Of Time, and This Means War. The overall sound quality has also been improved on the reissue. On the original, Cliff Williams' bass was very low in the mix, and it is more audible here. This album is not as strong as some other Johnson era albums: Back in Black, For Those About To Rock, or The Razor's Edge, but it is still a very good album with strong songs. It also contains some of Angus Young's most underrated lead guitar work.
