Product Description


AC/DC's second U.S. release took the raw energy from their debut, High Voltage, up a notch, producing another huge collection of driving, intense songs for serious headbanging, but adding a bit more professionalism into the equation. The songwriting and production are tighter and more focused, and standouts such as "Whole Lotta Rosie," "Problem Child," "Let There Be Rock," and "Bad Boy Boogie" almost have to fight with "filler" like "Go Down" and "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be" for the spotlight; but really, there's not a wasted track here. Guitarists Angus and Malcom Young further define their grooves, and vocalist Bon Scott sounds like he's on the verge of combusting. Let There Be Rock is big and lean. --Lorry Fleming

Product Description

Digitally remastered European vinyl LP pressing of this 1977 release from the Australian Hard Rockers, reissued to coincide with their 2008 studio release and world tour. Eight tracks. Sony/BMG.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angus, 'Nuff Said. June 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Personally, I feel this release and "Powerage" are Angus's finest moments in the Bon Scott era of the band. Some might argue "Highway To Hell" deserves the honors, but for the sheer sonic ferocity of Angus's fretwork, the buck stops here. The amps are cranked up to 11 and Angus just doesn't let up. No power ballads, no acoustic guitar or "keyboards", just flat out, pedal to the metal, rock 'n' roll. Arguably, AC/DC's rawest & purest "guitar" album. All killer, no filler. A must have for any rock fan.
Oh, & by the way...anyone who reviews this album & a George Michael album is no AC/DC fan. I ain't sellin' my soul just to crack the top 100.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock n Roll at its best July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album another fav of mine. I bought it a week ago and listen to it at least once a week. All the songs have a big heavy guitar sound. The track Let there Be Rock is my fav on this particular album. I like every track on this album and give it five stars for the great guitar sound it has its unlike any other AC/DC album. I really wish they had mixed all the other albums this way but o well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Una scarica di adrenalina maledettamente pura June 22 2004
By Carlo
Format:Audio CD
Il 1977 è l'anno della svolta per gli AC/DC: dal rock'n'roll passano ad uno stile più grezzo e pesante soprannominato heavy and roll per via di un orientamento non ancora verso il puro heavy metal ma a metà strada tra quest'ultimo ed il rock'n'roll; come risultato abbiamo un cd più effervescente rispetto ai suoi predecessori. Ecco la tracklist:
1) Go down: Traccia sottovalutata. Chissa perchè? forse per colpa del bigotto di turno che ha voluto imporre il proprio giudizio alle masse! Una delle poche canzoni rock'n'roll dal 1977 in poi, ma molto bella. A
2) Dog eat dog: La peggior canzone dell'album ma non per questo da buttare via! A-
3) Let there be rock: Title track travolgente con un bell riff di basso in sottofondo. Angus e Malcolm qui sono come una corrente d'aria fredda e una d'aria calda: fanno un uragano di potenza!!
4) Bad boy boogie: Canzone nel cui ritornello si può sentire una vena artistica risalente ai primi anni '70. Una di quelle canzoni che riescono meglio live. A-
5) Problem child: Canzone dove gli Young e Bon tirano fuori tutto il loro carisma ("What I want I take, what I don't I break") canzone superba, peccato per il ritornello un po' troppo scontato. A-
6) Overdose: La mia preferita del cd. I solisti si incastonano perfettamente nei potentissimi riff partoriti dalla geniale mente di Malcolm. A+
7) Hell ain't a bad place to be: riff taglienti come delle rasoiate sulle balle. Assolutamente geniale! A+
8) Whole lotta rosie: Bè, provate solo ad immaginare di essere nel '77 e di ascoltare questa canzone a palla: è come essere nell'occhio di un tornado ( anche un mio amico ve lo può confermare...) A+

5.0 out of 5 stars One of there best! March 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Some may argue that this is AC/DC best album! And they may be right, its defnitly one of the best and one of the best hard driving great hard rock guitar albums to this date!
This is a 5 star album.....But i only give it 4 and half stars on this reissue!
I'll tell you why?
Because when the album was first released in Australia, it had a track on it called "Crabsody In Blue" which many beleive is the seaqull to "The Jack" its a diffrent sounding AC/DC song, almost slide guitar bluesgrass sounding! But the song did not make it onto the version that went world wide because someone thought it was too disqusting? or didnt want to promote a song about having crabs! HAHAHAHA....so it was replaced by a song of the Australian DDDDC album called "Problem Child" and also an unreleased world wide song "Rocker" which was on there second album in Australia TNT!
So the only downfall to this re-issue is they did not include "Crabsody In Blue" it should be there in its rightfull place amongst the rest of the great songs!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the guitars!! Nov. 4 2003
By redSG
Format:Audio CD
When asked to pick the best AC/DC album, it's a tough call for me between POWERAGE and LTBR. Although POWERAGE is my personal fave, LTBR is right on it's heals.
No other AC/DC album has the same loud, obnoxious, nasty guitar sound that LTBR has. Period. It's evident from the very first track "Go Down" to the very last track, the classic "Whole Lotta Rosie," and on everything in between that Angus and Malcolm just plugged in, turned it to 11, and went for the jugular. If there's every been a good argument that AC/DC are a heavy metal band (which they whole-heartedly deny), LTBR (both the album and song) is that argument.
Not only is the guitar sound great, but the songs on a whole are magnificent. Bon's writing continues to grow from the earlier albums, combining sex, drugs, and rock n' roll with a good dose of humourous storytelling. Again, "Whole Lotta Rosie" is a prime example, as is the title song. Who else but Bon could pull off a shag story about a 19 stone woman so eloquently!?! To quote Angus, Bon truly was a "gutter poet!" In addition to the lyrical content, the hooks on this album are HUGE! The title track and "Dog Eat Down" are excellent showcases of the boys ability to work out some of the catchiest licks in rock history.
Bottom line, this is an essential album for any AC/DC fan (or any rock fan in general). If you're just starting out, you can't go wrong with this one. If you're an old timer, like me, this remaster brings the sound to an even better level, so even if you have other copies of LTBR, it's well worth the effort to get this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bon,you are not forgotten!
This would be ACDC's final album before the highly commercialized and successful "Highyway To Hell"."LTBR" is in my opinion ACDC's greatest and toughest album. Read more
