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.
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.Read more ›
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".

AC/DC has always had a problem of their music sounding like music off any other of their cds, with lyrics changed. You get the same feeling upon listening to this cd. Read morePublished on Dec 5 2003 by Eric J. Weik
15 yrs old and one of the better albums they produced. Yes I said it! This IS one of the three or four best albums that AC/DC ever made.Published on Oct. 31 2003 by C. Douglas Mays Jr.
