Product Description

Amazon.ca

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars review of let there be rock March 28 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Classic AC/DC. Bon Scott's voice will always be best suited to their music. A very good addition to my collection and in particular Whole Lotta Rosie as the final track to a solid collection of music.

This is my all time favorite AC/DC albums of the Bon Scott years. From "Go Down" to the quintessential "Whole Lotta Rosie," the speed and energy from this album will amaze you. What will surprise you is how raw this album is; it is NOT polished whatsoever and sounds like the band is playing live in your basement. Compared to other albums that they made during the Bon Scott years, this one sounds like each song is recorded in one awesome take. This is the way hard rock was meant to be heard, and truly, the best way AC/DC was meant to be heard. Angus puts his riffs pedal to the metal on this one, so I strongly recommend buying it!

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 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good CD. It isn't the best one though. April 18 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is like the 7th ACDC album that I bought. First time I heard, I thought it wasn't good. Well I relistened to it that it is pretty good. The only problem is that the songs not catchy, I mean that you don't wanna hear them twice the first your heard it. I think it is because I use to have CD's like Back In Black, High Voltage, Highway To Hell, etc. In almost any other bands, this album would be VERY good, but in Ac DC's case, This album isn't that good. Also, I think this album is not constant, I mean that there 2 songs that are very very good but the two others won't be that good.

But it has good sides on it. Angus' solos are amazing (as usual). The emotion passes well on every song. Bon's vocal are hard and sweet. The drums set rocks, too. There are songs like Let There Be Rock, Problem Child, Go Down and Whole Lotta Rosie that are very good songs. Everything goes well on those tracks. Dog Eat Dog also is a song that listen very carefully. The others have something that I can't get in, these songs are too long and not catchy in my opinion. But I am not the best ACDC fan, Well If you are, Buy it, you'll love it. If you like ACDC but it isnt your favorite band, I'd say to spend your money on a record like Highway To Hell, Back in Black Or High Voltage.

Finnaly, If you are looking for pure and strong hard rock, you are there with ACDC.

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+
HEAVY METAL FOREVER

A+

4.0 out of 5 stars Let There Be Rock June 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let There Be Rock kicks up the energy level a notch from its predecessor, making for a bracing hard rock record of blasting guitar and basic, aggressive grooves. While slightly more metallic, AC/DC's sound was still bluesier than it would be by the time of the band's commercial breakthrough. Appealing in spite of himself, Bon Scott delivers his leering double entendres and humorous asides with typical panache, while the Young brothers' guitars bite, kick, and scratch behind him. While the music still meanders on occasion, the songwriting is overall a bit more memorable; AC/DC classics on hand include "Problem Child," "Whole Lotta Rosie," and "Bad Boy Boogie."
