4.0 out of 5 stars The best with Bon
Highway to Hell is considered by many to be AC/DC's best work. I agree that it is their best with Bon Scott but not their best overall.
AC/DC again explored some bluesey riffs on Walk All Over You and Night Prowler but they had honed the skill since 1976's Dirty Deeds. Don't get me wrong this is a heavy album. One of their heaviest. The songwriting is excellent...

3.0 out of 5 stars my review
this was the perfect way for Bon to go(R.I.P Bon we all miss you) Highway ton hell is a hard rock masterpiece especially with songs such as the title track "Girls got rhythm" "touch too much" "shotn down in flames" and the 6 minute plus "night prowler" which later gained controversy linking the song to a murder suspect this album is...

4.0 out of 5 stars The best with Bon, July 17 2004

Highway to Hell is considered by many to be AC/DC's best work. I agree that it is their best with Bon Scott but not their best overall.
AC/DC again explored some bluesey riffs on Walk All Over You and Night Prowler but they had honed the skill since 1976's Dirty Deeds. Don't get me wrong this is a heavy album. One of their heaviest. The songwriting is excellent the Young brothers' guitar work is crisp and clean and Scott's vocals are delivered with his trademark snarl.
This is an outstanding album and should be a staple in any hard rock/metal fans collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still BON as Lead Singer!!!, Dec 13 2009
By 
This review is from: Highway To Hell (Audio CD)
This is one of AC/DC's CDs where Bon Scott is STILL lead singer. Heaven knows how many fans dumped "AC/DC", after Brian took over the lead singer reigns. If you did stop buying their stuff after Bon died, it's a shame, since their music is just as good or better, with Brian at the helm. However, only YOU may make that choice! Van Horn!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE LAST AC/DC ALBUM I OWN, Oct. 30 2012
By 
B. C. Whitcomb "WTF?!" (Mad Cow, Canada) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Back in Black not withstanding, this is an outstanding work and, regrettably, the final appearance by Bon Scott. One cannot say enough that can describe how good this album is. While Mutt Lang's production values are slick, they don't hide the amazing rawness of early AC/DC's sound and the strength of their musicianship and showmanship. I don't think that AC/DC every rocked this hard ever again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grade A-, July 15 2004
This review is from: Highway To Hell (Audio CD)
HIGHWAY TO HELL is AC DC's finest with their old lead singer Bon Scott. The playing is tight, the songs are constructed for maxuim punch, and production is crisp and clear.
THE GOOD
HIGHWAY TO HELL, GIRLS GOT RHYTHM, SHOT DOWN IN FLAMES, WALK ALL OVER YOU, are some of their finest. This is the cd to start your Bon area with. "Mutt" does a first class job on production, as always.
THE BAD
Including IF YOU WANT BLOOD, YOU GOT IT, which was just released on a live cd at the time.
C.P.O.V.
With a song title like HIGHWAY TO HELL, you can pretty much tell were this song and cd is headed. GIRLS GOT RHYTHM, TOUCH TOO MUCH, BEATING AROUND THE BUSH are all about sex in the first degree. Lyrics are suggestive for then, but kind of tame for today's standards-EJW

4.0 out of 5 stars Another AC/DC classic, July 9 2004
By 
Jmetal86 "josh" (Grand Prairie,Texas) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Highway To Hell (Audio CD)
High Way to Hell is great every single song is worth listening to. The title track High Way to hell is just freaking awesome Angus Young really knows how to play those solos each song is filled with altleast one or two kik a** solos. Anyone who listens to good old rock n roll will love this ablum and some other great AC/DC albums High Voltage,Let there Be Rock,Dirty Deeds done Dirt Cheap,Powerage,Back in Black,'74 JailBreak,Back in Black and For Those about to Rock. I give this album 4 stars since all the songs are worth listening too and the great thing about having the digipak is you can get to read some tidbits about the bands history and some well written articles. Buy this album and you'll be totaly satisfied with the songs on this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best AC/DC album, and ONE of the best ALBUMS!!, June 30 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Highway To Hell (Audio CD)
This CD is deffinetly my favorite AC/DC album, and it is in my top 10 favorite all time albums. The songs on this CD jsut plain rule! This CD has alot of really good songs, my favorites are Shot Down in Flames, Touch Too Much, If You Want Blood, Beating Around the Bush, NIght Prowler (which got alot of unwanted attention when a 'night prowling' criminal that wore an AC/DC hat started commiting crimes), and Highway to Hell, which is very ironic, because about six months after the release of this album, singer Bon Scott died on a night of drinking. Bon had always had a booze-sex-drugs-brawl lifestyle, and Highway to Hell seems to be a recognization of where he really was. Anyway, this is a kick ass CD, you should go out and buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars AC/DC's best Bon scott album, June 28 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Highway To Hell (Audio CD)
This is THE BEST BON SCOTT AC/DC ALBUM. This album is incredible no songs are weak. And the song Highway to Hell is worth the price of the whole album. the next song girls got rhythme the second best song on here it is awsome everything perfect. Other great songs are walk all over you, touch too much, shot down in flames and if you want blood You got it. I also recommend Back in black-AC/DC Appetite for destruction the best album ever and Nirvana-Nirvana all of these are great additions. oh i also reccomend all other Bon scott AC/DC CD's too.
Best song: Highway to hell and Girls got rhythme also rocks
Worst song beating around the bush

5.0 out of 5 stars Farewell to Bon 25 years on, June 21 2004

This review is from: Highway To Hell (Audio CD)
Australian hard rockers AC/DC released their album Highway to Hell in July of 1979. This was the first of three albums that AC/DC would work with producer Robert John Mutt Lange and coincidentally the band's first Top 20 charting and Platinum selling album here in the US. Ironically, Highway was the last album with the late Bon Scott before he died in February of 1980 after a long night of drinking. The album is pure AC/DC. Every track is great. You get the rock radio staples of the title cut, Girls Got Rhythm and Shot Down in Flames. Other highlights include If You Want Blood(a song named after their live album from 1978), Shot Down in Flames and Walk All Over You. One of the best song's on the album is Love Hungry Man which is somewhat of an overlooked gem in the AC/DC repertoire. The last track is the spooky Night Prowler which caused controversy when an AC/DC hat was worn by "the Night Stalker", a murderer who used AC/DC as a scapegoat for his evils. The song, ironically enough, was about what teenagers used to do, sneak out of their windows to their boyfriend/girlfriend's house whilst the parents were asleep. Bon was at his best on his last album. You really have to listen to whats not played on the radio to understand how great he was. Today, the album still sounds competent in 2004 with its digitally remastered edition.
