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.
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!
There are two pretty good songs on "Fly On The Wall", namely "Sink The Pink" and "Shake Your Foundations" (both of which can be found on the soundtrack album "Who Made Who"). The rest is cookie-cutter mediocrity...the lyrics seem forced and clichéd, the music in completely uninspired, lacking the hooks and riffs that make AC/DC's best songs so memorable, and Brian Johnson's voice is mixed far into the background.
"Fly On The Wall" was a commercial and critical failure, and it's not hard to understand why. It's steeped in mediocrity, and comparing it to "Highway To Hell", "The Razors Edge", "Let There Be Rock" and the greatest hard rock album ever, "Back In Black", makes it look like even more of a disappointment.
This one is only for completists.
The songwriting is good, however, and would make for a good listen, except for the problems mentioned above.
The fact is that AC/DC virtually died when Bon died. The guy was simply irreplaceable. He was the missing link that finally launched the Young brothers to stardom. Due to sheer talent, their momentum was so good, the inspiration at a peak, that BACK IN BLACK would have been a success with any singer, be it Brian Johnson or another. That they managed to record album after album after Bon's death, itás a tribute to their quality.

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 morePublished on June 24 2004

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 morePublished on Jan. 18 2004 by Dan
Having at one time, been a great AC/DC fan, I was sadden at this release. Looking back I can see why. No new ground was made. Read morePublished on Dec 4 2003 by Eric J. Weik
