Let There Be Rock: AC/DC

Rating: 95%

ACDC-LetThereBeRock.jpgIn 1977, AC/DC released “Let There Be Rock.” This album is another favorite album of mine by AC/DC with Bon Scott on vocals, bassist Mark Evans, Malcolm and Angus Young on guitars and drummer Phil Rudd. This album is raw, lots of energy and features full action guitars from start to finish.

Musically, the album just rocks. It’s rooted deeply in blues and rock n’ roll. It’s much heavier than “High Voltage.” It features a lot of guitar riffs that are nicely done and a whole lot of Angus Young leads. The sound is a high overdose of distorted guitars with some production noise. It has lots of melody, tempo changes and harmony. Every song is composed well. Vocally, Bon Scott has improved since the first release “High Voltage.”  The songs here such as “Let There Be Rock” and “Whole Lotta Rosie” have become classic song icons.
