4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and unpretentious rock album June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have to disagree with the folks who say that this is a bad first album for AC/DC fans simply because it was mine. And it was the first CD I got when I saw the remastered versions. I am by no means a die-hard but I've always liked the band. Being a teenager during the glam rock craze, I had a few AC/DC tapes in my collection and would always pop this one in my walkman if I wanted to listen to something more earthy and real.
In reference to the "poor" production remarks made by some others. I see the point, but I remember the videos on MTV for this album including the 45 minute video LP. They showed the band in a dive bar simply playing the songs. I've always associated this imagery with the band and have never really looked for slick production in an AC/DC album. They are one of the few, in my mind at least, where the producer could make it easy for himself by hitting the record button, sitting back and having a beer and let the band do their thing. However, those looking for a Back in Black pt2, will be disappointed.
Starts off with the title song and you don't stop tapping your feet or your steering wheel for the next nine tracks that come after. Simplistic lyrics, great guitar riffs by Angus, and that one of a kind voice by Brian Johnson. The only track I was not wild about "First Blood" all the others hold up pretty well. The remaster come with a nifty booklet showing photos of the band on tour and a web link with videos from the album. This should not be a question of whether or not those should get this as your first AC/DC album. It just shouldn't be the *only* one. A great buy from one of the best rock bands.

This album is one of AC/DC's least popular and know albums. Mostly i guess because of the sound quality, i dont know what they where doing, but it is kind of hard to hear Brians voice during alot of songs! The Re-Issue has made it a little clearer and improved the sound, but still not enough to really make the songs fully shine! Some tracks sound incomplete and shoul have been worked on a bit more!
Beeing an AC/DC fan, this is one of my favorite albums, but i wouldnt recomend it to any non-ac/dc fans, or new comers to the band! it really IMO is liked by the AC/DC fans, a few tracks tickle a few un-be-knoweths fancy... but these songs wenrt recorded too good. and unless youve heard the title track played live you probably wouldnt understand the impact it has!
Beeing a re-issue it probably should have had WHO MADE WHO , DT and CHASE THE ACE included from the "Who Made Who" album, seeing as how so many people dont want that album because it only contiains 3 tracks, plus a few extras from other albums! because its a soundtrack to Maximum Overdrive! and so many people buy it because they think its a greatest hits, but its not, and they end up disapointed by it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly great Nov. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
For a very long time, my AC/DC library stopped at For Those About to Rock. I didn't even acknoweldge that they recorded any albums after that. About a year ago I finally said what the hell and bought Flick of the Swith. It was about as weak as I expected. I think I've listened to it two or three times since. Well, I got the bug again a few days ago and decided to try my luck one more time, so I bought the next album. And I'm surprised at how good it is! It's not their best of course, I wasn't expecting another Highway to Hell or Back in Black. But it's great stuff. AC/DC is one of those bands that basically keeps churning out the same handful of songs album after album. Sometimes the wind is at their back and sometimes it isn't. Well, this time it was. Back in Black, For Those About to Rock and Flick of the Switch all had a certain "dark" sound to them, and understandably so. On this it sounds like they finally cheered up and wrote their first upbeat album since the Bon days. These are just good catchy anthemic rock songs that AC/DC does best. I think it's better than Flick of the Switch, at any rate.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is My Favorite AC/DC Album Oct. 28 2003
By Stretch
Format:Audio CD
For years the AC/DC Album which I held in the highest regard was "Back In Black" like most other fans. But in 2003 AC/DC Were inducted into the Prestigious Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, and to Commemorate this honorable achievement, Epic Records, the Record label they are currently signed to acquired the Rights to their entire Back Catalog/Discography and Re-Issued most of their albums with Remastered Sound and Deluxe packaging.
The Re-Issues didn't hit Record store shelves simultaneously, Groups f Albums were released in separate "Phases". The first arrival being their more celebrated albums like "Back In Black" and "Highway To Hell".
"Fly On The Wall" was released with the third and final phase. And after listening to this album heavily, It's now my favorite AC/DC Album - With "Back In Black' being a close second.
Popular opinion states that "AC/DC Were in a Slump during the Mid-80'S" Well that's only true if you observe Album Sales. And it's kinda true as "Fly On The Wall" to date has only gone Gold, Which is meager compared to their past sucesses. In fact it was for this reason that I feared the worst: Epic might not produce a Re-Issue for "Fly On The Wall". Well a Gigantic relief came my way when a message board poster from the official AC/DC Website informed me that "Fly on The Wall" is scheduled for a Summer release, July 1st to be exact.
On that very date I Was on vacation in Washington D.C, and upon returning home I was unable to find the album at big chain record stores, I Checked a Pawnshop and found a copy for $8.99, it amazed me that the year on the back cover said 2003 and I bought it used!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unlike others, I think this is one of AC/DC's better albums
Many people seem to hate this album for the reason that it doesn't really have any huge hits like Back In Black or High Voltage. I actually like this one a lot though. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites
Contrary to what other people think, i think this is one of my favorite AC/DC albums. Brian Johnson's voice isn't gone (yet), his screams sound better with the songs than they did... Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good, but not a total waste
Brian Johnson's voice was practically gone by that time. Also, the production is simply horrible here. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars A fine example of AC/DC's mid-eighties slump
This album sits alongside AC/DC's previous effort, "Flick Of The Switch", as their least interesting. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars "Fly"-ing Colors.
If memory serves me, the mid 1980s weren't too kind to AC/DC. After a string of million selling albums, the band saw its sales decline, and it lost much of its thunder to more... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Remastering Job
I always thought this was one of AC/DC's most underrated albums, with good songs but horrid production. This new remaster solves alot of problems with the original. Read more
